Sound System

I'm looking at replacing the two dash speakers and two sound bar speakers on my 03 TJ but I'm not sure what to go with. I have an afternarket head unit but I'm looking for good sound when loud. I was looking at either kickers or alpine. What sizes should I get. Thanks for the help.

I put 5 1/4 kickers in the sound bar. I put 4x6 kickers in the dash, i bought baffles for them and you need to buy the aftermarket brackets for them as well. Look into putting poly-fill in the soundbar and dash. is a great website and has all you need for better quality sound, great prices too. Let me know if i can be of any assistance for anything else

this is what you want. get some nalin brackets and put polk 5.25's components in the dash then get a set of polk 5.25 coax and put them in the sound bar. get an amp with say 50rms x4 and hook it up to them. add a 10" sup in the back. i have installed this setup 3 or 4 times and it works great. for amps i would recommend the rockford forgate pbr300x4 and pbr300x1 and mount them under the dash.

Any 5.25" with an rms rating of 35 watts or less is best on factory head unit power. Ditto on the nalin brackets for the dash speakers to fit the 5.25" if you decide to go components nalin had one that puts the tweeter on the door strap pin.

Alpine or kicker...I run kickers in my sound bar and have an alpine sub...both are great brands. Polk is good too. You should try to listen to them if you can, speakers are really ear specific.
iPhone app user; excuse typos...thanx.

I suggest looking into Polk's DB5251 component setup. Marine rated and a very high quality package for the price.
