Kenwood Speakers
 
Looking to finally upgrade the speaking in my TJ... The ones the sound bar are starting to distort and buzz, so I'm in the market. Was looking at Crutchfield and in particular, Kenwood 6.5's. Anyone running them? Not looking to spend a whole lot on two speakers, like $70 max.

Also, 3-way or 2-way? I'm just going to be using my headunit(Pioneer DEH-4000UB) to power them.

The dash speakers will be replaced at a later time as they are sounding fine, but will be replaced with some 5.25" speakers.

What model are those?

Again, 2-way or 3-way... which being better?

Are you sure those are kappa's?? They have the reference seris grill on them

4point 08-28-2008 07:44 PM

Sorry, they are the Reference series. 2 way. They work great for me.

Where did you buy them? Need any wire adapters?

the infinity speakers are a good buy. i have the kappa perfect components in my rollbar and kappa 3 ways in the front and they all sound amazing, even with the doors off and the top down at 75 mph. i payed $125 for the perfects shipped on ebay and 60 shipped for the kappas. saves a good deal of cash.

Wow, the bottom of your soft top is so clean. :cool:

I have Alpine type R componets in the bar. They sound the best because Of the highs and lows in them come krystal clear. You should really look into putting componets because my problem was...Top down= lots of wind and cant hear the music lol...So get some good 6.5 componets for up top Kappa's Type R's even Type S just stay away from crappy paper film. Kappa has kind of a steel mesh on theres so they dont blow as easy

Polk db521 for the bar and 461p for the front. Plus Crutchfield is offering buy one pair of Polks and get the second set for 1/2 price. I am quite pleased with these speakers paired with my Kenwood DVD Stereo Garmin Navigation head.

AzTJ 08-28-2008 11:25 PM

Wow I'm slow tonight... Thanks for the info.

i have kenwoods. they're cheap, but sound really good for the money. if price is not a factor get mb quart components, if it is, the kenwoods work just fine. i also heard the kappas are a real nice speaker... just my 2 cents

dweebster 08-29-2008 04:29 PM

i prefer pioneer premiers because they have double highs and sounds real crisp
