Looking to replace all the speakers in my 2000 tj sport, trying to figure What size for roll bar and dash and what the will give the best audio without breaking my bank.
I used 5.25" kickers in the dash, 6.5" kickers in the speaker pods on the roll bar, and an 8" SSL subwoofer under the rear seat. I'm using a CHEAP second hand JVC head unit to supply the music. I'm under $300 for the entire system and couldn't be happier.Looking to replace all the speakers in my 2000 tj sport, trying to figure What size for roll bar and dash and what the will give the best audio without breaking my bank.
Well crap. This is the first time I didn't go Pioneer. If mine fails I will report it on this thread. I would have bought Pioneer if they had a higher amp system. I have never had a pioneer fail that didn't go under water.I replaced the front speakers with 5.25's. I tried the adapter plates first and then upgraded to the enclosed pods. The pods are definitely expensive for what they are but they sound much fuller then the open back plates did.
Most 6.5 speakers will fit in the rear soundbar. You may need to put the screws in new locations but that's no big deal.
My buddy and I both bought Sony MEX head units with the high output amps built in at roughly the same time from different retailers. They have been suggested by multiple users here due to our Wranglers not having a lot of space to stash an amp. They both failed just outside of warranty. Just my anecdotal experience but I personally will not recommend them to anyone else. I think I'll just be upgrading to separate amp in the near future.
