Moving sound pods to tbe front

Have a 2006 tj with the sound pods in the back and I was wondering if you can move these on the other side of the bar (above driver and passenger head) in order to free up space for the 4 slot 5.25 custom sound bar in the back behind the bar where the pods currently are. Thanks

if you made a custom sound bar why even keep the pods?

I think you believe the old theory that more speakers makes it louder, this is not always true. If you are installing 4 5.25's in the bar you need to focus more on dash speakers instead of adding more above your head.

What are your dash speakers? How are you running the 4 in the bar? Amp?

I havnt purchased the bar and I already replaced the dash speakers and the pod speakers. I have alpine 5.25 spr 50c for dash and jbl 6.25. Will moving the pods work though and has it been done before?

You could. You would need to drill new holes and install nutserts. but I would say just leave what you have. Possibly put components in the dash and add an amp.

Members have considered moving the pods but the reality is a speaker directly above your head is worse than behind you.

What are you trying to achieve? Volume? Then you want to look at smoking the dash speakers, mid bass? Again amping and having a head unit with eq will help. Low freq bass you need a sub.

iPhone app user; excuse typos...thanx.
