XJ speaker placement

can anyone who has the 6 speaker infinity sound system in their 97+ XJ tell me where their speakers are placed? I have the crappy 4 speaker sound system and would like to know where they put 5 and 6 if you have 6.

Rjay,
With the right four speaks in the factory locations and the right signal going to them, you can make your ears bleed! More is not always the answer

I wouldn't mind adding a couple of speakers to my xj either - i think the two additional speakers come in the rear doors.

What jeep considers 6 speakers is adding 2 tweeters to a 4 speaker system. To get the best sound out of your jeep replace the front speakers with a quality coax or component set and amplify the front and the rears. This can be done off the factory radio with good result. But the best is with a afermarket radio. By amplifing the speakers you cut you distortion down and the speaker will sound much cleaner and play louder withour distortion.

To get the best speaker for your money check out Memphis(www.memphiscaraudio.com).
Thier coax speakers have swivel tweets that are aluminum and the cones are poly so they hold up to the weather well. I am a installer of 8 years and have been selling and installing them for 5 of those years. I have used every decent speaker made and the Memphis speakers and amps are one of the best. I have delt with Boston Acustics, MB Quart and Dimont to list a few and the Memphis hang right there with them in sound quality and power handling. If your running the factory head unit dont buy the best speakers you can find because the power of the head unit wont allow you to get the best performance out of them. Go for the mid range. They will still rock if you eventually upgrade the system with a amp.

Hey EL,
Do you guys have any problems with the boston tweets? We dropped them about 3 years ago and that was one of the definite problems in the line, wondering if they cleaned up at all. Also I agree that a changed head unit may get him a sound he will be happy with without having to replace all of the speaks. Ray if you insist on replacing the speakers make sure you do the fronts first because those are the ones that you will notice the difference most and shop around and buy what sounds good to you. Not everyone is looking for audiophile sound and if thats the case thats ok.

The Boston line has come a long was in 3 years. The soft dome are still the best sounding and still used in the cheaper Rally Series though. I think the biggest problem they had was the Pro tweeter was to bright for a lot of peoples tast. The reliability has improved and they have tried new thing with the bridge to try to attinuate the harshness of the tweeter. I would take a set of MB Quarts over them any day.
