I'm new to the forum and rocking a 2015' Wrangler Unlimited JK that I've mostly done exterior mod's to thusfar. I recently installed a focal system for some better sound and determined that the tweeters sound like sh**t when bounced off of the front windshield (super tinny). I have them running passive from a 2 channel amp so I can't adjust my crossover freq and as these tweeters are made to be fired direct instead of upwards I need to mount these inside of a "tombstone" found in the alpine upgrade system rather than in my dash of the base model sport I have. Does anyone know where I can buy tombstones or a product like them? I know some owners don't like the look but I'm more going for functionality over looks.


Thanks yall

If you go onto google there are several websites that carry the aftermarket pods for he tweeters. There were too many for me to list here or I would have given you the link.

Am I wrong in saying that none of the 2015 and newer JK’s were equipped with the tombstone tweeter housings? I thought all 2015+ JK’s went to the flush mount tweeter in the dash, whether or not equipped with the Alpine system.

that is correct. 2014s were the last with the tombstones.

I thought that that tread covered both types. I'll have to ask him the next time we have coffee. Sorry for any confusion.

For factory appearance, you will need to replace the main dash plastic piece, which is enormous with a 2012-2014 unit, similar to this one...

https://ebay.us/RJyY0y

You can search local junkers near you from Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market. Should be billed as a "dash panel" on that site, but you will have to contact the wrecker to determine if they have the actual part you need. Also, keep in mind you will need a non-Rubicon, black, LHD.

As far as actually replacing the panel, I imagine it to be a gigantic PITA, so don't expect to do it in an afternoon. This thing was assembled out of the vehicle with all the components attached, so was likely not meant to be worked on inside the vehicle. Fiberglass is a bitch, but would be a fun project.

If you are unconcerned with the look, aftermarket tweeter pods like Wolf mentioned can be mounted atop the stock tweeter grilles. Search for "focal angled tweeter mount", those should work best with your Focal tweeters. Generic universal pods can be found as well though.

Go one step beyond that, and you can make an ABS panel to fill the position of the stock flush grilles, and then mount the tweeter pod on that. You can also utilize the stock flush grille as a base to do some basic fiberglass work and make a custom tombstone that doesn't alter the dash at all.
