I changed the front and soundbar with some Focal components. Much bigger and better sound. Sub is still stock. If I were to change sub would prob do a JL 8"

I have swapped the speakers in a lot of jeeps.

Focal, JL, Kicker, Polk etc...

the JL 8w3 in the factory inclosure sounds nice but getting the factory grill to go back on and look right isn't exactly easy

I have Infinity Ref series coax's in the stock locations, huge difference in clarity. The real difference is the aftermarket head unit and the Polk DB 8"sub being driven by a Fosgate R150.

Nope . . you'd be the first

Details are in my sig But I have a full JL setup (employee discount ) with a 900/5 Amp, 10" Marine sub (in sealed fiberglass enclosure), C5's in the front, Marine 7.7" in the rear, and a clean sweep acting as a Line Level converter. If you are upgrading your speakers I would suggest Dynamatting the stock boxes to add rigidity and if you really want performance, Amp them with new wiring.

2009, 2 Door X, Rancho 4" Sport Lift w/ 9000xl shocks, 35" Firestone Destination MTR on Spidertrax spacers Bulldog Front Bumper w/XRC8 Winch, LoD Rear Bumper, FinishLineWest Rock Sliders, 5.13 G2's, ARB Rear diff cover, LineX'd tub, JL Clean Sweep, JL 900/5 Amp, JL C5 components in front, JL Marine MX-770's in soundbar, JL FS-110 Marine sub, Tuffy security deck, HID's in Cibie's, Piaa 520s
