Rear Speaker Headliner Mounting

I have a 99 XJ which only has the low front door panel speakers. It has wiring for the littler tweeter speakers on the front doors as well, but what I'm interested in is getting some rear speakers for more of a surround sound feel. I pulled off the hatch panel and noticed there were mounts, but there's no grill on the panel. My next thought was mounting them in the headliner, but I pulled that out a long time ago.
Can I still mount the speakers to the metal ceiling? Should I make/find a sound bar type of mount to put in? Does anyone have experience with either mounting speakers to the ceiling, or would it be easier to just cut holes in the hatch panel (I do have face plates for my speakers). Thanks

For what it's worth, I changed my headliner for one with the rear speakers. The wiring harness runs down the pillar and when plugged in, gave me rear speakers and a light for the cargo area that is switchable to turn off both interior lights. Sound with stock speakers is only fair at best but I've really come to like the light.
I have seen some XJ's with a sound bar type box that mounts to the roof by the tailgate.
Either way, I suggest a trip to a junkyard to see what you can find.

Stop by the junkyard and pick up a sound bar and bracket from an early to mid 1990's Cherokee.


A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
