Excellent install write-up!
Correct. 1997-2002 require trimming of the subframe brace. 2003-2006 bolt on without modification.7 speaker system makes quite a diff in the ti! Always thought about adding that sub in the console but never got around to it.
Both you guys must have newer TJs then? I think pre 02 has to cut the dash part of like I showed.
Don't forget to add polyfill!!!
Man this adapter sounds great. I'm extremely new to audio and I'm just plain not good at this stuff. What are some of the best 5.25" speakers? A lot of people in this thread have had to splice wires. Can you not get speakers that plug in?
How hard is it to get 6.25" speakers in the sounds bar? One said it was a pain in the *** but didn't go into detail.
These are good comparisons:So, if I get the DB521's for the front, and want to get 6.5" in the pods. Which should I get, the DB651s or just DB651. Someone said earlier if you are not running a sub go with the slim mounts. Whats the difference? I plan on replacing my factory sub, but not sure if I will run an amplifier.
Judging by the picture I would say no, although I can't say from first hand experience. The speakers will come with new ones (however I know that a lot of people prefer the factory look for security reasons):Thanks Nalin....I will be ordering some brackets from you soon...
So I understand the difference. My next question is, would I be able to use factory speaker covers on the non s version. From what I understand from the link you posted, you may or may not be able to. Has anyone installed the non s version and used their factory covers?
It certainly make my life easier!No problem glad it's helping out people! Any questions just ask!
Do the adapters.
One of my best mods up with regearing - no joke.
I put some seriously good quality hertz audio in the front and they just blew apart my clarion 4x6s.
Take the time, find a good set of speakers. 5.25" all the way around.
Oh and consider the tweeter moutns NalinMFG makes. I got bummed on shipping due to being in Canada and made my own mounts by the sun visor.
They're overpowering everything. These tweeters need to be moved farther back - like right where the nalinMFG mounts are?!?!
What is your opinion of foam baffles vs polyfill?I know I havent been here in the forum long so I hope you dont mind the constructive critizium but before construction I worked in the audio industry for 15yrs in doing highend installs. Try using these behind your drive and wether 5.25 or 4x6 ur drivers sound waves wont fall apart so easy.
Check out this neat little amp install:An amp makes ALL the difference in the world. I have a small amp (KTP-445) that only puts out 45 watts RMS per channel but it made a HUGE difference in my 5.25 / 6.5 Polk combo. If you drive with the top and/or doors off above 35 MPH you're really going to need an amp. Even at low volumes it made a big difference in mine. The stock head unit sounded like crap through nice speakers. I tried it but didn't tolerate it long at all.
I've been asked this a few times now so I want to make sure that this information is available for the masses.May be a dumb question; so you can remove the tweeters from your existing DB521's and place them in these brackets? So far this is my favorite as far as that goes, although I fear they might get kicked or get wet. Better than up in the dash in your face though IMO.
Post a picture.Bought the adapters and all was great except two problems.
1. When i rotate light switch it hits the plate. (Not too big of a deal)
2. Driver side speaker will work until I mount the plate to dash.
Not Nalin mounts bought these before discovering this thread. Are they side specific?
Mounts I have http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007ZDCGVG/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Do I need to move the grounds attached below? The speaker crackles then the head unit says failure on display. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: Upon further testing same problem when i switched the sides of the speakers. Must have got a defective speaker. And switched plates, not hitting headlight switch anymore.
The only places to buy NalinMFG speaker adapters are from NalinMFG.com and eBay seller Nalin_Manufacturing_LLC. I have no resellers/affiliates.Ok I'm confused. In the first post you said you didn't buy the NALIN adapters? But now are saying you did? Because the picture you posted does not look like NALIN adapters..
NALIN adapters if bought from him/his website don't interfere with anything been running them now for 3 years, flawless!
