I was just on your website and saw you also have some tweeter brackets coming that are not yet available. Will these be for the TJ/LJ?

I think your 5 1/4 brackets along with some baffles like this would really improve the sound up front in the TJ.

Check out CDT audio for some very nice drivers. I have a friend that used to be a dealer for them and I believe they were pretty good to work with. Very nice equipment.

Yes, I should have a few sizes available pretty soon. They should actually fit in TJ/LJ/YJ/CJ's per user submitted dimensions online(I only have a TJ to measure stuff from). I am going to test them on a few local Jeeps to ensure this before they go live on the site.

Baffles and polyfil do make noticeable gains in sound quaility, however I don't have the means to make baffles...especially for that cheap! It wouldn't be fair for me to buy them from a distributor like that and charge a markup to cover the shipping I paid when the customer can get them from a reputable manufacture at already reasonable prices. Most guys use polyfil...which is just $3 pillow stuffing that can be bought locally at any craft store/walmart.

I will look into CDT, but a concern I have is paying a buy in for a non-mainstream name brand. In my experience most customers go with Polk, Kicker, or Infinity. It is not good business on my end to stand behind something that I do not personally run(I have Kicker/Polk in my Jeep and Pioneer/Infinity in my truck). I will look them up though, thanks for the info!

For those looking for more information on CDT per Fargo's post I am attaching a link to there website.
http://cdtstore.com/coaxials/cl5ex.htm

It does look to be very high quality audio equipment. The link is for their lower end coaxial speaker(price range for most people upgrading speakers), however you might want to take a look at their higher end component speakers if you are serious about you sound system

I look forward to seeing your tweeter mounts hit the market. Will you make hole dimensions available so people can figure out if other brands of tweeters will work?

I completely understand not wanting to carry an unknown speaker company. Most people would likely assume they are some cheap garbage. But I wanted to throw it out there for you. Sometimes those smaller companies will give you better dealer pricing because they are trying to gain market share.

EDIT: I am in no way affiliated with CDT. I've just used them in the past and liked them.

Yes, I will actually try to list popular compatible tweeters along with the hole sizes. Most product manuals are available in .pdf form online and they provide the necessary cutout size(It's not a secret...just takes time to find). I have 4 sizes cut as of now...I will see about more/less based on demand.

I have a printable template idea to help customers figure out what size they will need if they do not have calipers or their box does not share the dimensions.

Sound great Nalin. Please post on here when the tweeter plates hit the market. I may be interested in a combo deal.

Will do. There will be a combo price offered once they launch.

Alright.... So I got my speakers today and the brackets yesterday. I will say I have 2 disappointments but I am very happy and pleased with these brackets and NALIN. The shipping took like no time at all and installation (altho I had no instructions) was pretty straight forward.

1. I was surprised when the brackets arrived unpainted as all the install pictures showed them painted. This is more my problem than NALIN and I in no way think negative about the company just myself.
2. I had to cut off some metal for the speakers to fit. This again is not a fault of NALIN but should be noted you will have to do some cutting on both sides to get the speakers to fit.

Getting ready to paint


Painted with speakers installed


Installed


apologies for the crummy pictures I am to tired to edit them haha. I will say these speakers sound great and these brackets are awesome!! worth the 20 bucks (shipped)

Thanks for the great pictures 97Heep, the blue turned out awesome!
I see where you are coming from with the install instructions, I wish you'd have given me a call if you were needing a little help with it. Until now I have relied on the links on the description page to various customer install threads(because you are correct, it is pretty straight forward!). Every once in a blue moon I will get a call, but I will see what I can do about including a slip of paper with them. I appreciate the input!

I will also enlarge/bold the bare steel and requires cutting part on the page. Those a important enough details that they should stand out from the rest.
I only use customer submitted photo's on the site/ads so you guys know what you are getting (not some picture touched up in photoshop). Red Rubicon(posted above) sent the ones painted red; I will make sure to get some more bare steel pictures up.

I'm glad they turned out they way you wanted, let me know if there is anything else I can do to help you out.
