AlohaJay Dude for sure out 5.25s in the dash with new brackets, I have those hooked up to a 600watt amp, 4channels. Then I have component speaker in my sound bar hooked up to the amp as well with 2 10's sub in the back hooked up to a 1200watt amp sounds badass!

Add another for polk. Very affordable and good sound.

A $3 pillow from walmart is enough polyfill for several Jeeps.

Did your 6.5"s come with the plastic mounting plate? You might try a MDF ring to evenly fill the space between the speaker and the recessed lip.

I second Polk DB521's in the dash

03yellowtj get kicker, i have the ds60 with a sony sterio and everyone compliments me on the crispness of them. It also helps that i have a sub for the kick and not the speakers.

A new stereo will make a huge difference just by itself, but honestly the stock speakers are pretty bad.

Do you want to keep the stock radio? Polks are the way to go if you have the stock radio. Might as well upgrade to 5.25 round speakers in the dash too.

jherrington I would go with MTX speakers, they are good quality.
Although, others may disagree I'm sure.
