If this isn't considered technical, please let me know, I'll move it
Looking to get some new speakers for my TJ nothing major just something with more bass. Right now I have the factory front speakers and some Panasonic computer speakers in the back seat (came with the jeep when I bought it)
While I would "audition" high-end speakers for my home, auditorium, or concert hall, let's not pretend the Jeep environment is even close to any of those and is worthy of "auditioning" speakers. Not that any retail stores and few audio installers would let you do anyway.
Without installing an auxilliary amp, just look for speakers that have a high Sensitivity rating of 90 dB (decibel) or higher which simply means they will work and sound fine with the stock head unit. Polk is one brand of speakers that are well suited to Jeeps which have the required high >90 dB Sensitivity rating. One more thing to realize, a speaker's wattage rating is misleading to most people... everything else being equal, a speaker rated 1000 watts will be no louder than a speaker rated to 100 watts. Its wattage rating is only how much power it can handle without distortion. Going with a speaker that has a high Sensitivity rating and a lower wattage rating means a good match to the low power of your stock head unit.
I like this, but I don't want to cut open my back seat, and I don't have any speakers to put in/know how to put in.
Call me crazy but I like how my crappy computer speakers can fit under my seats so I was thinking...should I just get a small computer sub-woofer cause they'll fit better? Or am I better off getting a small car sub-woofer?
I don't want a lot of bass, just some. I had a 93 Grand Cherokee and the sound in that was PERFECT. I just want some type of bass cause I listen to a lot of different music (Punk, Reggae, Dance). Nothing extreme like making the floor shake.

You don't have to. If roll your seat forward you'll see the bottom cloth has a zipper (at least mine does).
You'll have to cut out two of the support bars though (no problem because you'll replacing the support with ply wood). A thin mount powered sub will fit. Far better than the stock sub between the two font seats (if you had that option). However the bass still gets lost at hwy speeds with the top off. Around town and on the trail it's a great addition and it doesn't loose any valvable space in the back.
