So as everyone here is probably aware, my JK's speakers suck with the top down and doors off on the highway. Was considering replacing my speakers in my soundbar. This got me thinking.

Is there anyone who offers a soundbar that will just completely replace the stock soundbar. I am not too much of a fan of mounting additional speakers, but I would be very interested in purchasing a new soundbar.

There are replacements out there, but your best bet is to replace the speakers in the bar with something better and get some amplification.

most of the replacement bars use speakers that aren't much better than stock and require more power than the stock radio puts out to really see improvement.

yep i replaced all 4 of my speakers with mb quarts. I was running them with the non infinity mygig setup. I recently went after market and damn the quarts came to life. you might wanna switch to aftermarket head unit and speakers.

Yup, stock stereo is weak. Stock speakers suck.

I threw some T3's all around in mine and it helped (base OEM head unit) but not enough. One of these days I'll get around to replacing the head unit.

I just ordered a clean sweep from jl audio... Trying to find a good price on the pdx5 now. I like the stock head unit and want to see if the cleansweep will help any.

cleansweep should help to get full range signal to whatever you run in the sound bar.

do you think i can install it prior to getting the amp?

i have the cheapest stock system you could get with no sub and no amp.

In my '07 Sahara I replaced my with Infinity's 6022si's and I was very pleased with them but today I just ordered a set of Polk Audio db 651s' for my 2011 JK so I'll let you know if they work as good as the Infinity's did. They did get a little bit of a higher rating so we'll see. For $99 you can't go wrong.

Mike,
The Polk's from came with neoprene gaskets for the speakers that get installed in between the adapters for the soundbar and so far I've got no rattles at all. They REALLY sound good. I had Infinity's in my last JK which also sounded great. I don't think you could go wrong with the Polk's, Infinity's or the Kickers. ANYTHING is better than stock.
