Front YJ Speaker replacement

I need to replace the front speakers in my 95Yj What is the speaker size and who makes a good quality replacement speaker?
I have Alpine in my sound bar and in the rear I would like to stay with them if I can.

How much of a pain are they to get out?

They are 4x6". They aren't too difficult to remove but takes some disassembly. I took my dash apart to install the speakers the first time around. You can get away with just pulling the dash out as one piece. 4 bolts on each side, next to the speakers. Drop the windshield and then there are some more torx bolts under there, remove those and then the dash should be able to be pulled out enough to get back behind the dash.

I currently have some Rockford Fosgate's. These are my second set of speakers so I've taken the dash apart a couple times.

Hey man, I've gotta better idea if you don't want to take the dash off, because at the stereo shop I work at, we don't remove the dash to install the 4x6's. If the factory speakers are already removed this will work, just slide the speaker up there and onto the mounting studs. If you have access to some 8 GA. wire, strip off about a 1/2". This insulation will slide onto the mounting studs and mount the speaker securely. We have been doing it this way for years and have never had any problems with the wire insulation no holding securely.

(The drivers side is alittle more difficult than the passenger side, but it can be done.

a simple project turned into a 2 day group grope fest the mb quarts i bought where not the same "bolt" pattern as the stock speakers. they were put on 2 of the posts and held in place with those little nuts off of the stock ones.i was finally able,after lots of profanity,able to get enough of my dash aprt to be able to "reach" in.not a pretty sight.

blue belly,
Of course you want alpines... they are the best! They make the alpine SPS 4629P I believe is the model number and don't forget the last P or you will regret it. There is a big difference between 4629 and 4629P's and it's not worth the discount in sound quality to get the cheaper ones! Good Luck man and if you need any help drop me a line

Hey guys Im planning on doing the same for my 4.0 YJ 1991, I want to install Pioneer speakers 4x6 but a friend of mine told me that is not necessary to remove the whole dash, he said I could actually intall the speakers from underneath.
What do you guys think? any advice? Is that really true?
Thanks in advance

that e-brake can get in the way...that's why I went with the centrapod...here is a link tot he full instructions where you fold the windshield frame down...you can replace the seal while you have it all apart...as these YJs love to leak when the seal gets dry.

Going through my Haynes manual and I stumbled across the speaker removal section. It says to just remove the passenger side by reaching up there and unbolting it. For the driver's side it says to unbolt the parking brake assembly by removing the two nuts that protrude into the engine bay and then one that attaches it to the dash. Once that is out of the way you can probably do it the same way. I agree that folding the windshield down makes it easier, but if you're a little gun-shy to attempt that you can try this method.
