6.5" component setup

How can I install 6.5" component speakers in my TJ? I would like something that has precut holes and mounts to the roll bar in place of the current ones.

I purchased JBL MS-62C speakers to replace my current C2-650 (coaxial) which I just bolted into the factory 5.25" enclosures. The sound was not too great, and when one of the C2 speakers crapped out I decided to go for JBL because the JBL speakers in my Mom's Prius sound great.

Since I am upgrading I would like to get an enclosure that will resonate with the 6.5" speakers for best sound. What options are available? I would like to keep it under $100... If that is possible.

Thank you.

they will mount in you stock sound bar/sound pods without cutting. also fill the pods/bar with poly fill but not packed in.

what do you have for dash speakers? do you have an amp?

normaly running a component set in the sound bar is not a good idea. most stick with a coax. were do you plan on mounting the tweeter? you will also need a place to mount the crossover.

I'm currently running 6.5" coax in the factory setup, but I want to upgrade. I was hoping to purchase a soundbar/enclosure that had a tweeter option - and mount the crossover in the enclosure.

I'm running JL C2-525x in the dash as of now, but if I am as happy with JBL I might get another set of the MS-62C and try to get them in there. I have an amp now, but I just purchased the JBL GTO-804EZ amp so I have the option to run my 80watt speakers at full power.

I see you have 2 threads now for this subject. If you are going with 6.5" comps for midbass you'd be better off to try to incorporate a sub somewhere. Also look into adding an amp behind the speakers which will allow you to keep the volume lower and give better SQ.
