s3nt3nc3d From what I hear...sound bar is simple. Grind away the plastic along the edges until your speaker fits properly. What I'd probably do is find the cutout diameter for those particular speakers (should be listed in the specs either on the box or online), make a pattern, trace it, and trim it out to fit that pattern. Then you just need to drill holes for the mounting screws (make sure they're a little smaller than the actual screws or they won't thread into anything...and then just gently screw them into the new holes. Remember it's plastic so don't overtighten your screws or you may strip them. I'd just snug em up.

The front is a little more complicated, but not by much... you need an adapter plate for the front (not the rear though). You also have to cut out a piece of metal. The directions show exactly what will need cut out...and you'll see it once you've got the old speaker out and the adapter plate lined up where it needs to go. That's the only modification for the front that I'm aware of. The hardest part I hear is cutting through the looks thin, but apparently it's a little tougher to cut through than you would expect. So if you use a dremel...might pick up a few extra grinding wheels. lol

CMEvans79 Anyone have a write up or good advice on how to modify the sound bar?

akswinehart ok, let me get this straight. I would need an adapto plate to put 5.25's in the front, so what about the 6.5's in the sound bar? a slight modification? do I need anything else?

nick19729 I just did mine.4x6 xplodes in dash and 5 1/4 pioneer in sound bar and a 12 inch kicker bass tube.Bass is nice but should have done bigger speakers around for mid-bass.Definitely worth the mod to the sound bar and adapter plates.

s3nt3nc3d People's opinions vary...some people like one brand, others hate it. They all vary in their sound quality and style and it really depends on what you like.

Like just an example... Sony Xplods tend to have more bass and less clarity, whereas Pioneers don't really "bump" so much but their sound is very crisp and clear.

I'd go to a store where you can sample various speakers...Walmart usually has a wall of speakers where you can do this. Stock soundbar speakers are 5.25" speakers, but with slight modification, you can run 6.5" speakers in it. For the can buy adapter plates for like $20 to put 5.25" speakers in it instead of 4x6's.

Dash and overhead speakers

Hey, my front dash speakers seem ok, but my overhead speakers are blown by the previous owner ... anyone have an idea what the best replacement speakers are for the overhead? Or any other ideas for speakers, I have a ad-a-trunk so there is not room for a sub box.
