Speakers

My front speakers are making a burning smell and my rear speakers arnt even working. There is an amp under the front seat (but from what i can tell there arnt any subs) and its not a factory radio. I bought the jeep and i hope to put new speakers in and i was hoping for advice on where to get moderetly priced speakers and how to hopefully remove the amp and find a factory radio

Walmart sells name brand inexpensive stereo equipment or try Crutchfield.com for everything.Remove the amp and stereo and get a high powered head unit(CD) and new speakers without an external amp.

People are pulling stock head units all the time for aftermarket ones.
Keep an eye on Craigslist or look in the forum classifieds.
Some will just send you their old unit for shipping costs only.

They are an oval shape...you have to look behind the cover on the dash. I believe they are a fairly standard size...

There are two screws on the "side" of the speaker cover - you should see them. They are pretty obvious. From there the cover pulls right off and you will see that old speaker sitting there. I am not sure what size they are - maybe 4x6? Or 3x5 (not sure if this is an actual size).

The fronts are 4x6 but not standard size. Youll need to get an adapter bracket to mount them in. There's also adapters to mount 5 1/4s up there too. If youre looking to replace stock, Ill send you all 4 stock speakers for the cost of a 12 pack and shipping. Let me know!

At Crutchfield.com, they give you adapter brackets if you buy 4" speakers for the dash. 4" isn't much, but you can hear the music without the sound bar in.

If I regret anything, it's not buying higher quality speakers. Probably will be upgrading to 5 1/4" in the dash in the future.

Don't be so quick to dismiss what good things you have going on. Many aftermarket headunits will pump out a decent jump in wattage over the stock HU. With that said there are a lot more people who want amps than those who don't.

The amp may be small enough for you to use to run your speakers. If its big enough, run a sub, even a single 6.5 or 8" sub will be a noticeable improvement.

As far as your speakers go, find some 5.25" speakers you like and get 2 pair, they pop right in the sound pods, and then check out the adapter rings people are making (or buying) over in the electrical forum.

X2 on Crutchfield, which has great selection and fitment guides (they'll send you free adapters for the dash speakers). I'm very happy with my folks from Crutchfield.

I found a factory stereo new on ebay for about $70 two-ish years ago. I think the model is called RBK. The only tough part of that install is getting the security bolt off the back of the old head unit -- which may not be an issue removing your aftermarket unit.

Good luck.

PS-I'd also ditch the amp. For a jeep, I think it would be too likely to be stolen or waterlogged...

If your jeep had a factory sub it would be in your center console (under the compartment).

Your 98 likely won't have a factory sub in it, as with anything a picture is worth a thousand words, so if you can post a few up and we can give you more and better advice.
