Here's my $.02 I am running the stock sound bar with a pair of 4" Rockford Fosgate T142C speakers and a small sub in the trunk. Sounds great, low profile, and I can crank them up loud enough to hear them on the freeway without distortion.

Triple88a So i finished the speakers... I put the original bar in front and now the bar i made is in the back. Take a look at my cardomain and i hope every one likes it. It sounds great now

The worst is the top left screw on the drivers side. I am convinced that the speaker just doesn't belong there, and they put it in before the front fire wall. I had such a time getting it off, that I simply left it off. (3 screws is enough to hold it in anyhow...right?) Your efforts will be rewarded however, the sound is great and significantly better, especially for vocals etc...
good luck took me about 4 hours, with both of us.
4 hours????
I did the same thing, folded down the widnsheild, whole dash hanging off, guages and all......2 hours with breaks....and we used all 4 screws...

Triple88a well here i added few pics of my progres. I would say 1 6x9 connected sounds better than the 2 that i have in the bar now (i think they are the stocks). http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2512831/1

front 4x6 speakers

I need to change my front 4x6 speakers, how much fun and I in for? Any time saving hints?

Triple88a So i started making the box.
I'm now waiting for the "liquid nail" glue to dry

Here is a pic (blueprint) of my pieces.. later on i will add actual pics of it on my cardomain...
The wood plate is 32" by 48" and its 1/4" thick.. i wanted 3/8" but they didnt have any and 1/2 was way to thick and heavy for my use so i decided to go with the 1/4"
11-22-2006 10:24 PM
Triple88a Ok all i'm working on a custom sound bar for my wrangler that will fit 2 6x9s.. so far i bought 2 pieces of wood for 4 bucks a piece.. now i gotta do the rest.. but yeah ill take pics and keep you guys up to date..

Nope, the soundbar mounts to the roll bar with no drilling required.

itsmyjeep thanks, I'll check out those options. I just went through the riggerous event of the 4x6 install, that was great... and the sound is awesome. I'll check out the sound bar options.

Odd is he I just put two pioneir 4x6's with built in tweeters in the dash... they sound great for the $50 i spent on them..... I will soon be adding a single 600watt sub in the rear also

3jeepguy if all you want is sound than get a pair of speaker seats out of a pontiac fiero ( remember those ) each seat has 2 speakers in the headrest
11-20-2006 09:20 PM
itsmyjeep not sure that I could accomlish that under the 150 - 200.00 cost of the ones already done. Unless you have any suggestions on material to use...

3jeepguy why not build your own ?

speaker thoughts

I am looking to buy a speaker bar. I currently have a couple box 6x9's in the back, but thought I could get better, or at at least more direct sound from a speaker bar. I also thought having a dome light would be a nice feature. Some of them that I have seen online look a bit bulky, and others I am scared of them having very poor sound quality. Any thoughts on types, and which ones are better than other?
thanks
