And has anyone ever use those "versa pods"?

Do you want to keep the stock radio? Polks are the way to go if you have the stock radio. Might as well upgrade to 5.25 round speakers in the dash too.

If you want to get new speakers, I would upgrade the stereo as well, providing the new speakers with proper power and better response at higher volumes. 5.25" speakers with the custom mounting plates in the front and same for overhead speakers (speaker size up there depends on model of Soundbar) try that first and see how you like it. A new stereo will make a huge difference just by itself, but honestly the stock speakers are pretty bad.

I'd go with the Polk audio speakers. 6.5 in soundbar and 5.25 up front. And trust me the 6.5 polls fit in the sound bar without any drilling or cutting just use the supplied hardware!!!! So many people say you have to cut or drill new holes when you don't.

6.5"s fit in the 97-02 "soundbar" like they were meant to be there. 03-06 "sound pods" are another story -- 6.5"s can fit but it's a little more work.

I second Polk DB521's in the dash :whistling:

get kicker, i have the ds60 with a sony sterio and everyone compliments me on the crispness of them. It also helps that i have a sub for the kick and not the speakers.

If you have the same factory box in the dash for the speakers that I had (4.25" and 1" tweeter) just do what I did. Change out the two speakers and use the little plastic speaker box thing. Otherwise you are throwing a speaker in a wide open space. Might as well just hang it from ur mirror on a string!

A $3 pillow from walmart is enough polyfill for several Jeeps.

Did your 6.5"s come with the plastic mounting plate? You might try a MDF ring to evenly fill the space between the speaker and the recessed lip.

Another vote for Polk Audio. They make marine-grade 6.5" that will fit in the soundbar and the 5.25" is perfect for the dash. Won't break the bank either.

Dude for sure out 5.25s in the dash with new brackets, I have those hooked up to a 600watt amp, 4channels. Then I have component speaker in my sound bar hooked up to the amp as well with 2 10's sub in the back hooked up to a 1200watt amp sounds badass!
