[QUOTE=rettags;6492030]You guys inspired me to drop new speakers in the soundbar and a couple in the rear doors. I took your advice and installed the door speakers in line with the roof ones. Mounting them in the doors was pretty straight forward, but I did need to trim about .25-.5" from the inside of the door as the opening wasn't quite big enough. I went with some Alpine Type R 5 1/4" coaxials, mostly for the fact that they are real inexpensive and because I already have the matching components and subs.

good install, and one of the few speaker sets that doent clash with the jeep interior, i was really limited in mine because i dont like to see speakers (even my visible tweets bug the crap out of me) but i must say i like it.

Congrats, thanks for the pics, and glad we could be of service! our of curiousity did you wire them in series or in parallel?

I wired them in series. Normally I would have just tapped into the the stock harness for the door speakers, but you guys gave some good advice and also mentioned that the rears are more for filler and don't need so much power.

I was a little apprehensive about mounting the speakers like I did. But I figure I could always paint the covers to match the gray interior if it bothered me that much.

Um, my first system I was only running 150w to each 15 (2)...and i won many comps with it

Power rating isnt everything. I currently have the JL 500/1, and I have no plans on going with anything higher than that. Its just a very high quality amp than can really push the subs when i want it to.

Looks good man, glad everything worked out good for you.


Ok Now I have a question. Anyone know of an affordable sub( preferably a 10) that will work in a sealed enclosure around .3 to .5 cu ft ?

bluejunior i think your a homo. there isnt a audiophile or a hardcore car audio guy who runs a prefab ported box. also a true audiophile has front stage and MAYBE rear fill, but never a full compo set in the rear. i will give you creadit for conjuring up the idea to put rear speakers on the rear doors of an XJ, but rear speakers are for back seat passaganger and **** with sound staging. also dude, you need to hop off the mainstream band wagon. start lookin into companies like RE audio,USamps, Marcom car audio, RD, Sundown, Stetsom, Fi, DD, Hertz **** i could go on for hours naming brands youve never hurd off. also clean up your wiring for your amp. a car audio guy takes pride in his own personal install, your wiring should be neat and proper lenght.
this a 10000 watt stetsom amp. the same amp thats used to set world SPL records


custom build ported box for my friends NEON

box thats in my S10

HAHA ouch dude. The wiring on my pictures thats visible is rca cables i didnt feel like cutting and re-soldering and jumper cables, its under my rear seat and i may want to move my amp later, not like its visible normally. I despise my sub setup but its better than nothing. As for the front/rear soundstage comment, my rear is fill, some cheap small Polk DB's and some alpines with no sealed echo chambers cant compete at all with the soundstage created by my component momos up front. But seriously, all I wanted to do was create a thread that lets people pick up some ideas, from me and those who have heard of things I never have. The fact that you find it more worthwhile to put me down than attempt to contribute something useful is frankly just sad. Congratulations, you're the biggest *** on the thread

I would however like to note that the crossection of the homemade ported box is a welcome addition for those who've never made one so thanks for that.

Impressive sub but I wouldnt have enough amp to power it I think I need something a little more efficient as the amp will only put out around 150 at 2ohm
