Go to eBay, and search for "Jeep Wrangler Jk Unlimited Under Seat Bracket." I would post a link but I don't want to break any forum rules.
Order placed! I have a JL Audio 900/5 and I have been looking for a safe place to mount it, out of sight and above leaky water. Thank you.

These are similar to the Infinity's I was looking at. 2ohm voice coil and great sensitivity will probably make these the loudest/most efficient you can get by running just the stock HU. Good to see a positive review on these.

You need to replace the factory amp. I have a 2013 JKU and replaced all 7 speakers including the sub-woofer (which you can't control or hear). I have a 130N unit and left the HU in the Jeep. I replaced all speakers with much better 4 ohm speakers and a controllable sub-woofer. I am sure other speakers will do, like Polk, etc. but I went with some very high grade speakers. My system is night and day. It really ROCKS.

Homemade in wisco. I like it.

I put quite a set up a long time ago in 95 4runner and around 2003 or 2004 everything started going wrong with the stereo and then the entire electrical system in the truck. That being said the sound is not great with the so called premium system and at some point I see my myself making some changes but making every effort to keep the 730n which costs too much to start. This sounds like a good way to tackle the project. Once I see how the stock premium system sounds with he top off (assuming it gets above 70 again) this mod may happen sooner than later.

I installed a JVC head unit, then installed Polk Audio DB651S's. They clipped pretty bad so I amped them. Then I felt I needed more base so I got a Kicker 10" and had to get another amp cause the first one didn't have power output for more than 4 speakers. I think I ahve the specs on my jeep profile. Anyway, I can jam down the road at 65mph topless with no problem. These are among my favorite mods.

Tip: get an amp that can power 5 speakers the first time. I have lost free space under both my front seats.

I put the component db6501s in the front, so yes, I replaced the tweeters.
Thank you very much!

It's really simple. Just take your time and don't force anything - everything fits when you do it right.

panthermark If you want to use the factory grills/stay stealth, I'd say the most common are the Polk Audio DB651s's (slim), the Kicker 77Kick10's. There were also some Infinty 6.5"'s, that were either 2 or 3 ohms (better match for the factory amp), but I can't remember if they fit behind the factory grills or not. They were also reported to have had pretty weak bass response.

New speakers

I have been wanting to replace the junk speaker system in my new 2013 jeep wrangler 2dr but I have no idea what speakers to go with. So I was hoping you guys had some ideas.

Thank you
