Help with car audio system

I have a 98 wrangler and im looking at sometime in the near future and im new to car audio and i dont even know where to start i need 4 speakers and i dont plan on having a sub. I have a crappy aftermarket radio and mtx rt2120 amp that was in the jeep when i got it. All 4 speakers are memphis brand and one of them has tore speaker lining and rattle. When there is a song with any significiant bass it rattles extremely bad and theres a static noise

Well if its soft top with the top off in warm weather, dont expect the sound of a car with a hard top....

find a dependable speaker. if you off-road/mud, try marine speakers (for boats and like) to withstand water abuse. an amp will really make them scream loud if thats what your going for.

I just picked up a new radio for my TJ and I'm doing all the work tomorrow.

I went on Amazon and picked up this one:
It has a USB port that reads flash drives... a lot cheaper and smaller than investing in an IPOD.

If I find myself with some extra money, I might invest in one of these...

My name is T.J., I used to drive a TJ. Then I bought a JK. My name is still TJ.

You can fit 5.25" speakers in the dash, and that what is recommended around here. Brackets are available on eBay, or can be made.

For systems without a sub you can run 6.5's in the soundbar to give a little more bass. As mentioned 5.25's fit in the dash with a bracket. If you can add an amp to the system you'll get a little more clarity and middbass out of the speakers. Kenwood speakers are kind of cheap but you really should listen to the brands as each speaker sounds different and different to each person.

Pioneer makes a decent entry line head unit. Alpine is my fav as far as features and add-on features. If you go alpine you may want to put in the power pack which requires no additional wiring and will amp your speakers 4x45 watts rms.
