BSing i just ordered some infinity 4x6 plates and the adapter plate for my jeep two days ago. Good luck with yours

erickpl I have MB Quart 5.25" rounds in my front. LOVE their sound. Have some baffles behind them to help with the sound too.

TXST8tj unless you make your own enclosures...these are a couple ideas/options... (under "Jeep Projects")

DocG2828 Welp got my Crutchfield about service!

There 4x6 adapter plates worked excellent....speakers fit just fine now. So if you ever want to replace your stock 4x6 with aftermarket 4x6....the adapter is at Crutchfield.

But now that I have some good high/mid speakers in makes the bass of that stock sub sound even weaker....what have I done!! Guess I'll have to go get some more bass now!.....darn.....

AzTJ Welp, have fun!

DocG2828 Thanks for the sub info.....I wasn't really thinking that stock would be worthy of a replacement speaker....I was just curious what the actual set-up was in there. Wanted to make sure I wired up everything ok with my new headunit to get the right signals to the right places.

The stock sub is ok.......I have 2 JBL 12's and a 200w mono RF amp I pulled from my Hyundai and I've had in a bunch of my cars....I just don't want to take up my whole trunk area. I might try to find a wedge box and put 1 12" back there, or rig up something with an 8" sub and my amp into the console. I just want get these 4x6's in place.

AzTJ ^ Correct - if you want a decent 8" sub, a JL or Boston would be best with a stand alone amp that has been wired properly.
03-19-2007 02:55 PM
TXST8tj at least you got the plate sytle. round is best.

the stock sub amp is only 50watts and the sub is wired into 1 ohm. don't even think about wiring an aftermarket sub to the that amp. the amp is wired in-line with the rear speakers....low level input.

jherrin215 The only speakers smaller than an 8 I have heard that the low end impressed me was a JL Audio 6 1/2 inch coaxial. It wasn't even a component set and it had really good bass response for a coax speaker. Not that this will help anyone with a jeep but it was impressive!!
03-19-2007 10:59 AM
DocG2828 Ok....found an adapter at Crutchfield that will make a 4x6 plate fit the stock opening. I should have bought the 5's....but since I already got these, I want to make them work.....the adapter is$12 bucks for the pair, just a metal plate with the ears on the ends to reach the stock holes.

I bought a 4x6 plate with a separate tweeter and midrange in the mid isn't oval shaped, its a round 4" speaker. Should sound ok....I know it won't give much low to mid....but should work great for mid to high.

But I've never heard a speaker smaller than 8" that gave any bass worth talking about.

NOLUCK13 Here is what I had done to mine... worked great...

jherrin215 peep'rs, I hate to talk about another site that you are a member of but I am so glad that I found this one first!! I read 2 posts, in the second one a guy was asking why his amp was staying on when his car was turned off. 2 possible reasons- 1. His remote had constant power, not on a switched source, or 2. His remote was wired to his deck correctly but his deck was wired incorrectly and not wired to an ignition switched wire to shut off when the key was turned off. One guy insisted that his amp was hooked up wrong. He posted in 2 separate posts that he should have his neg from the battery to the amp and from the ground on his amp to bare metal on the frame?? He was saying that the amp got it's power through the remote wire and didn't have to be hooked to the battery!! I know there are mixed opinions on here about everything but it seems that on here the one's that don't know what's going on(Like Myself) are the one's asking questions and the ones who know what's up(like - oh nevermind, no big heads from me) answer the questions!!

AzTJ Reason behind a 5.25 speaker is that they are more comon size and the companies put more money itno making them with better components. 4x6 are an odd oval shape and cause the cone to fold over time and givving off crappy sound as well.
03-19-2007 12:19 AM
Jerry Bransford The TJ's 4x6 speakers are a non-standard 4x6 so you can't mount aftermarket 4x6 speakers, their mounting holes don't even come close to fitting the TJ's speaker opening. Besides, many people feel that the round 5.25" speakers so popular as a replacement for the OE speakers sound better than the average 4x6 speaker... which may be the reason 5.25" adapter plates are so easily found for the TJ. I've yet to see an adapter plate to make an aftermarket 4x6 fit into the TJ's non-standard 4x6 opening.

Its just me, but I think I would use the correct size speakers in the pod. As for the sub Question try the following link:

JU is got allot of great info about this and many other topics. Just do a quick search.

03-18-2007 09:25 AM
DocG2828 Oh, also, does anyone know how the sub is wired up? Is it split off the rear channel? How much power is the stock amp in there? The head unit I put in has a lot of tweaking options and I want to set it up right based on what that sub can handle.

Dash Speakers - 4x6

Hey all....been replacing the stock stereo stuff with a radio I pulled out of my old car, and some new speakers. Of course I ordered 4x6 plates before I realized I could buy an adapter for the dash ones to fit the 5 1/4.

ANyways, does anyone know of a bracket or modification that will let me fit these 4x6 plates I bought into that location. The stock pods are an odd shape and the replacements aren't long enough to reach the mounting holes.

I thought about using a dremel to cut off the top of the stock pod and mount the new ones in the pod to keep it airtight like the stockers, but I'm not sure it'll fit until I get to hacking away.
