Soundbar speaker recommendations

Ok so I have the infinity sound system with the sub and everything but the speakers on the sound bar sound like crap. They are really really weak compared to the fronts so I assume the fronts are mid range woofers with the tweets on the dash and the sound bar speakers are standard cheap-os

Any recommendations on some replacment speakers for the sound bar? Walmart special Pioneers or Sony......what ?

The first problem is the amp in the JK is setup to reduce the power going to the sound bar. You can get an amp out of the Nitro for about $150 to fix this.

When you upgrade the speakers, I would add sound insulation to the sound bar to help with the sound quality and rattles.

I plan on doing this, it is just a little lower on the list of mods.

well this might not be what ur looking for but i redid my whole system. i used all alphine type-r speakers and added a sub. i did how ever use a alphine pdx-5 amp and put it in the stock location. so if your looking to go crazy, thats just an idea. but using a nitro amp is a cheap and also effective idea aswell
