A point ive tried to make on here about 3 ways...just fell on deaf ears.

I put components in my front...but removed the factory deck and amp. Left the stock 2 1/2 in the dash, and added tweeters in the pillar and 6 1/2 in the door.

Id repost pics but forum wont let me right now.

Would like to see your photos and see what your setup looks like. I dont have the cash at the moment to get a new deck and amps so I was looking to just replace the speakers in hopes to upgrade later. I guess I can go ahead and buy components for the front and install just the 6 1/2 and hold on to the tweeters until I get the new deck and amp. Thanks for the getting back to me quickly.

Your points didn't fall on deaf ears but you can't seem to grasp that it doesn't apply to everyone. Not everyone feels the same about it as you. Also, your ideas are more expensive than what I did for example which works very well.

Well Im opened to any suggestions and cost effective solutions. I just want to do it right the first time without having to go back and buying more stuff. Like I stated before, I looking for something that can easily transition to future upgrades. Something to work with the stock system and then aftermarket headunit and amp.

Thats mine. Completed pics at the bottom. Box doesnt have to be as large as mine though it made for a conveniant amp rack instead of stuffing the small one under the pax seat as planned.

Do anyone know how to get to the BA Subwoofer. Do I have to take the entire rear interior panel off.

It is in behind the cargo area side panel on the passenger side. I don't believe the speaker grille pops off but even if it did I don't believe you would be able to remove the SW?

That is a BIG and expensive trim panel so take it easy removing it. I have had the driver's side panel out completely and the passengers side popped loose. Takes some work to get those panels out and back in. Take your time.

Didn't fall on deaf ears at all. I learned a LOT from BOTH of you guys. Let the egos go and lets talk stereos. Shall we ?

What are the specs of the BA amp ?

I too don't have endless cash....

I want a louder setup than my BA system has now.

Is it more cost effective replacing the Amp or swapping out some speakers ?

In order, what is recommend ?

TIA

I replaced the stock BA amp with the mopar kicker upgrade amp. It changes the front speakers from running bass only to full range speakers. SQ is improved, I didn't like the amount of bass from the stock BA system and even with the new amp it wasn't enough, but I added a 10" sub in the back.

Specs of Mopar kicker amp.
