|Menasor||Infinity 62.9i. Just installed these in the sound bar last week, sound is fantastic even with the underpowered factory headunit. They will take 75 watts RMS all day long if you want to run an aftermarket headunit and amp. Sensitivity is 95db which will be hard to beat, and they come with the adapter plate so installation is quite easy. Just need to corresponding Metra speaker harness so you won't have to cut any of the factory wiring. It was between these and the Polks, but liked the specs and the grilles better as they actually look semi-stock.|

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 have a 13 JKUR and have went to kickers replaced the sub and added a lc8 because i want to keep the stock look. I to have lost the space under my driver and passenger seats but I came up with this bracket you see makes everything work out great!
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.

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.

This is very helpful! Thank you!
Do I have to buy speaker brackets like these as well??
Also have you replaced the tweeters?

|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.|

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

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.
