So I have been fixing my jeep up and finally got to the radio. when I bought this jeep I changed the radio out with a used one I had. well after a big rainstorm the inside of the car was flooded and with it went the radio. I changed cowl seal, hardtop corners were missing, door weather stripping needed repair. now I can put the radio in. I checked and the speakers are shot, need to change them and where did I turn to, JeepForum. just the place to pick up some info, always great info and great people who really try to help. Found a great write-up with picks and went for it. only advise I would give anyone is "check the speakers before you re-assemble". I cannot believe I had to do it twice because one of the "new" speakers was no good.
this is strange, my wiring must be so screwed up. I am wiring my new radio and no power. checked and blown fuse under hood. replaced and now have power but no starter. pulled the fuse and now can start, you figure. ran new wire from battery to solve that. now my wire from ignition has no power. I hate wiring, feel like a dog chasing my tail that is why I decided just to run new ones. just wondering how good are my speaker lines. did I say I love my jeep?
on my 95 YJ I bought a 5 1/4 pod that goes infront of the shifters, and 6x9 pods that goes around the rollbar/wheel well. I used infiniti refereces and powered them by an amp they sounded great. I plan on doing the same with my 89
took off a dashboard cover and loosened steering wheel. followed ignition wires, checked and found the one that was powered when ignition was on and off when off. spliced into, put a 10 amp inline fuse and ran to radio with it. hooked her up and "yes" I do have a radio. just can't make sense out of that radio fuse. why did it not start if I replace with a good one? alls well for now thanks guys.
