Question Regarding Speaker Change on Wrangler 2011
Ive got a 2011 Wrangler Unlimited with everything stock. In the next week I will be upgrading my wheels/tires as well as the electronics. I had a question that maybe some of you can help me with.

I have been looking at the Polk DB651 speakers and they seem to do the job for most wrangler owners. Should I install x4 DB651 or x4DB651S? Or possibly combination?

Also, would you recommend any other speakers that are better?

Thank You

Funny. Just picked up my order for the S less than an hour ago. :thumb: Had done minimal research, most reviews were very positive, that and the price to swap out brand new factory speakers. Prepared to take a chance. The thing with the S which registered with me is that you can use the existing speaker covers with them. I'm talking the sound bar which I what I bought them for.

Suprisingly small when I opened up the box and took a look at them. Slim is indeed what they are. You think there is a much bigger speaker in the sound bar simply from the cover. Hope to have it installed Monday or Tuesday. Should be an improvement hopefully.

I got the Ss, and they're great!

I still have to go back and polyfil, but they sound great as-is and were a snap to install thanks to Crutchfield including everything needed.

Crutchfield seems to have a special now on Polk audio, buy 1 set get the second half off so I think I am going to go with the DB651S considering Crutchfield provides any adapters that it needs.

Thanks guys

How easy were they to install? I bought the kicker speakers for the sound bar. The speakers fit perfect with no drilling. It used the factory, 3 holes. The Polk speakers has 4.

Also, Was the wiring just a plug in play or did you have to cut the wires?

The Polks require the Chrysler speaker wire adapters and the adapter mounting plate which is a non-working POS from everything I have read. The plate does not line up correctly. The price of the Polk S speakers with adapters is about the same as the price of the Kickers which is a direct no hassle swap. No idea which sounds better. I'm in the same boat and want to replace all of my speakers and add a small amp but keep the stock HU.
