Soundwedge: Opinions/experiences?

Was wondering how you guys like the soundwedge... how it sounded.. with top on and off.. i want the CBrack done by that cbracks.com guy so a sound bar was kinda nullified that way unless one of you guys have managed to get a soundbar to work with that cbrack..

how would the soundbar be affected by a CBrack?? If you mount it behind the roll bar it wont be in the way. All you need to do it run the wires down the other side to the headunit. I didnt look at what jeep u have but if its a TJ u should already be fine, if its a YJ just move the soundbar behind the roll bar. Good luck. BTW the soundwedges are really nice but be sure you have enough juice to run em. Id suggest an amp....

If you have a Yj, I have a pair of the soundwedge speaker boxes with speakers that I might be willing to let go. Don't use them anymore. Email me

I have in my YJ they sound great with my JL Audio speakers in them. I only have a few complaints about them though. When somebody slides the passenger seat back they will hit my speaker grills in them (Will be putting a stop in the track to eliminate this problem). Also I can't recline my seat back as far. You really can't compare what the soundwedges sound like per vehicle there is to many variables. The quality of the speakers and if a amp is being used has more bearing on the issue. I think if I were to do it again I would probable go with the 6x9 on the wheel wells.

We don't have the Soundwedges in our new Jeep yet but we had them in our 88 and loved them. The news ones have a cup holder in top, too (I think). We had new speaker in the stock location, an overhead soundbar, the Soundwedges, an amp under the back seat and a subwoofer in a box behind the rear seat. We could definately hear (feel) the radio at 70 mph with the top off. The downsides are what braveheart98 mentioned, the reclining seat and such. But otherwise it is very convenient, especially if you don't want a box on top of your rear wells (although I bet they provide better sound).
