If you only had two speakers in your JK

What would you have and what type of enclosure?

I currently only have a pair of cheap Kickers in my sound bar and they are not the best for an all around speaker to me. They also rattle the sound bar a good bit.
I have an aftermarket cage and opted not to put small front speakers in the dash.

I would love to have crawl tunes cans but they hella expensive right now as Ive got too many other projects that need my money first.

So what have you got and what do you suggest?

If the Soundbar is still wired as "rear" speakers, I would cross the fronts and rear wires behind the deck. Therefore they are receiving full signal.
2) Dynamat the inside of the soundbar pretty good. reduce all those vibration noises.
3) Stuff it with pillow filling
4) Change to a different 6.5" speaker, I like infinity's and polks. I like the crisper highers.

Or trash the sound bar completely and get speaker cans (not the tower type speakers) and weld them in. Run you front speaker wire from the deck to those cans and install new speakers (see above choices).

The stock speakers stuffed with an old pillow. No audiophiles in my family, can't hear much with windows open and too much bass rattles my toolboxes.

Good info.

4) I assume you also mean to run the front and rear speaker wires together as in 1) right?

J-Rod, No. Cross was a bad term. You just need to run the front wires to the soundbar. Since the rears are already ran, I would splice the front's into the rear running wires. The front speakers get full power all the time. The rear speakers receive minimal power, then they get cut again when the top is off (something with the power connection on a hardtop).
