Also...where would the pillow stuffing need to go? I read another post where someone was talking about using pillow stuffing after replacing the speakers in their soundbar.

Hi There,
Just stuff the pillow stuffing inside the sound bar, and leave a little pocket to put the speaker into. It stops the sound from the two speakers reacting inside the sound bar and dampens vibration so that you do not get the sound bar "buzzing" like the door panels on the "rice racers".

Kiwi_TJ I would second the opinion above. If the outer is shot, you could strip that off and either paint up if you like the shiney look, or rhino line over it for a matt finish.


I replaced the speakers in my stock sound bar with 5.25" Alpine speaker, and packed the space full of pillow stuffing and it sounds much better.

FireMedic82 I haven't seen any of the aftermarket sound bars in person, so I can't give suggestion there. But, unless your factory setup isn't bashed up and broken, I'd just replace the speakers with any brand you choose, and look into either re covering it or stripping off the material and spraying it.

Never seen what hides beneath the factory material, so that that suggestion with a grain of salt. Although, if you plan on ditching the factory one anyway, maybe it's worth ripping off the cover, just to see how it looks underneath.

Edit: I'm seeing some oem pods for yours on eBay for quite a bit less than the vertically driven. Maybe that's an option?

so you're looking for new speakers or a new bar?

most bars or pods with speakers included will be low quality.

Ironhead I removed the soundbar in my 03 and went with tower speaker pods.

Wheelin98TJ What is wrong with your stock soundbar?

Soundbar

Looking to replace my soundbar on my 99 TJ. All I can find is the Vertical Driven one and the reviews were not that great. Any advice?
