I promised I would get back with Honest impressions - didn't expect them to arrive today.
The speakers and the adapters (plug-n-play) Mopar part# 72-6514 no guessing involved.
To say the transformation was Amazing, Impressive, Startlingly Good would be accurate.
I installed them in the sound bar, re-tweaked my polyfill which was not that noticeable on the horribly muted stock speakers. I also re-tweaked my sub-enclosure polyfill.
Have not even done the tweeter mod (yet).
I put Pandora on and it sounded ...... good.
I then remembered my phone volume was down so I turned it up and it was like the stereo "Bit" me. The Eagles Hotel California came on and for anyone old and senile (like me) you remember how that starts out kind of slow, and it builds and Wham! the sub hit and wow.
I can not believe how the system has awakened. My stock sound bar speakers sounded worse than horrible. Muffled/mumbly a mess anyway.
It really really sounds great, thank you again to Pressurized and those who care enough to talk audio in Jeeps - Yes that can be a big part of the Jeep Fun Experience.
I didn't even have my roof panels in when I listened.
The detail and depth was never there before like it is now, not even close comparison.

Are you just off stock radio, no amp?
Running it off the stock HU (Alpine Premium 130 which has an amplifier)
The difference in the sound is what it is - noticeably "better" more clear, accurate, detailed, and full.
Whether that is agreeable to the person hearing it is subjective, the fact that the sound changed in the ways I described is not IMO.

You gotta do the tweeter mod.... think its good now, wait until you hear the tweeters come to life.

.
I am indeed looking forward to that. Wish the two (little) things were here. Didn't expect the larger box so quick, and what should be an envelope isn't due in until like next week. Oh well.
My hope is that everyone who desires a bit more out of there JK stereo gets to where they want to be - audio can be a bugger.

Im glad we are getting more objective opinions from true audiophiles like you and Pressurized..

Every time I see "Kicker" or "KAPPA" speakers are better.. or "these upgraded speakers sound like crap" thread, it makes me second guess the Infinity Reference 6032s.

I think it's time to place my order...

Howdy Folks!!...
I noticed that "Crutchfield" discontinued the 6032si's and now suggests you use the 6502ix's. I guess the up side is that 6302's elsewhere now are just over 50 piasters...

Drive On!!...

Pressurized is very knowledgeable indeed and his knowledge is only surpassed by his helpfulness, I will help any way I can :) If you would like I can forward links that were shared with me. I will add that not only was I impressed with the sound of these speakers but they are very well built and packaged.

Yes, I believe I paid around $53 for a pair. In the audio realm that is pretty reasonable (understatement).

Thanks for the review, I have been seriously considering upgrading the speakers. The current system is better than nothing, but about the same as having an old boom box in the vehicle.

Are the Infinity 6032si a plug-n-play fit in the sound bar? On Amazon they show that it does not fit a 2013 JK.

Speakers come with the adapter bracket you need just need 8 small screws. Wiring harness part# is in my Op.
I can forward you links that were provided to me.

It says true 4 ohm technology....

Then says:

3 ohms impedance works with all amps rated for 4-ohm operation
Sensitivity: 93dB
Whats up?

This thread pushed me over the edge, ordered the 4 speakers off amazon along with the tweeters. Should have them installed this weekend.

I'm curious, what caps are you buying?

For the Alpine system 6.8uf-100v as advised by Pressurized in his great tweeter mod thread.
You can use these caps and replace the stocks caps, or you can use 4.7uF caps and solder them in parallel with the stocks caps to get the same result. I had to do the later because my local Radio Shack only had the 4.7s.

Yes, I will forward the links and Thank You to Pressurized for facilitating-helping-supporting and guiding - Much appreciation!
Well, God and the Mailman are funny guys.... expected the speakers end of the week and they arrived last night - installed and what comes on Pandora but the Eagles Hotel California.
Blown away.
Didn't expect the capacitors until next week and they are here when I get home - installed and what comes on Pandora but Pink Floyd Wish you were here - Holy Crap.
My son and I sat there and listened with our eyes closed. Didn't want to get out of my Jeep but I wanted to report to you guys.
Wow. and just as I expected last night when I observed to my Son that the system sounded amazing but became slightly unbalanced by the now very "present" Sound Bar speakers now taking over the soundstage due to the choked out fronts. The tweeter Mod (Pressurized) simply transformed the front and rebalanced the soundstage ALL drivers to include the sub are balanced and in harmony with each other presenting a deep wide and quite realistic soundstage with open and accurate imaging. There is placement and depth and instruments have "shape" drums sound like empty cavities with tightly stretched skin being kicked by a hammer. There was detail way back in the distance on wish you were here that pulled you to where it was - totally involving listening experience.
Many thanks to Pressurized and those of you who care about the music thus making our chariots of fun just that much more enjoyable to ride in and spend time with.
Links to what you need for Mods referenced Thanks to our Friend Pressurized...

The wiring adapters:

http://www.amazon.com/Metra-72-6514-.../dp/B0007WTEVM

The speakers:

http://www.amazon.com/Infinity-Refer...eywords=6032si

That should do it for the sound bar. You will still need to get the 6.8uF non polar capacitors for the tweeter mod. Here's what I found on Amazon for those:

http://www.amazon.com/6-8uF-Electrol...ized+capacitor

If you are comfortable soldering, the instructions in the Stock Tweeter Mod thread should carry you through it.

Let me know if you anything further and good luck!
