I just bought an 04 Freedom Edition, first Jeep and I love it! I originally bought it to drive for 14 months and then give to my son who will be 16 by then, but I'm seriously considering keeping it, or getting a newer one after giving him this one
I just replaced the HU with a JVC Arsenal KD-AR959BS and it sounded pretty good, but the stock speakers sounded worn, I do not have the Infinity amp.
I had a pair of Kenwood speakers, I think they were 1664 somethings, and put them in. Now this thing sounds awful
No Bass at all and the dash speakers sound mush louder than before.
I've searched thru and read as much as possible on JeepForum and a few other sites. The consensus is that the dash speakers are not just tweeters, but I'm not sure about that. I'm considering disconnecting them to see if the sound improves but I'm betting I need to pull these Kenwoods, at least from the front, and get some deeper 6x9s.
I'm not looking to spend a fortune. I've heard some people recommending Infinity Reference, Rockford Fosgate, Polk Audio, and I think I saw a JBL. Problem is I think most people are using the built in amp or have an aftermarket amp. I do not.
Can anyone recommend a good 6x9 speaker for the front that will run off my JVC that will fill in the bass?
I apologize if this has been covered elsewhere, I could not find it. I'm 43, have 4 kids, 2 dogs, and a hermit crab. I'm no audiophile as you can tell, but what I have now is horrible and I know if I go to a Best Buy, etc and ask, I may not get the best advice. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
