Questions about stereo upgrade JK (crossovers?)
 
I am looking to upgrade the stereo in my new JK... had a few questions answered when I posted in the JK forum.

I was originally looking into a Alpine set up with the CDA-117 HU. To save some money I am thinking of getting a Sony CDX-GT700HD..
Sony CDX-GT700HD CD receiver at Crutchfield.com
and some cheaper speakers. Anyone know about this HU? Looking like good reviews.

Main question. Would like to get a component speaker set up. Where is a good place to mount the crossovers in the JK?

stay as far away from sony as possible!!!!

that is a nice alpine unit, you might want to check ebay for that unit, usually much cheaper than from crutchfield and other sites.

i have a tj with a factory soundbar and installed a set of infinity kappa perfect components and mounted the crossover inside the sound bar with some double sided foam tape. the kappa components go for a good price on ebay.

here is a shot of my sound bar had to do some trimming of the cover to get the tweeters in, and had to drill 2 small holes for each, two for the mounting screw and two for the speaker wire hole that is all hidden.
