I have been tossing around the idea of getting kicker speakers for my Jeep, KS525's for the doors (my doors do not come off for any reason), KS40's for my soundbar and I was thinking about getting KS69's mounted in the rear somewhere, facing forward. Maybe in a custom low profile box, because i like the little space my Jeep has to offer (and the backseat comes out sometimes for stuff).

Any opinions on their KS gear? I saw on JeepForum where someone used one of these Sound Wedges with an adapter plate to house a Kicker 6.5" COMPTV subwoofer. I'd be using 2 though.

Any opinions?

Kicker KS speakers aren't expensive... Infact they're rather inexpensive.

Yup. I'm not putting $200 speakers in my Jeep. I'm putting maybe $200 WORTH of speakers in it :rofl:

Minus the woofer.

kicker is really just selling on their name now. the last 2 sets i had sucked. I now run pioneer or alpine if i dont want to spend a lot of money. my DD/tow rig has JL audio XR speakers in it, they were around $800 a pair retail new.

I have the dash speakers and a sound bar. I never listen to the radio when I'm wheeling so I don't know why I have them.

After much thought on the subject, I think the best route to go with for a moderate system is a low profile subwoofer under the rear seat, the sound wedges between the roll bar, and either 4x6 speakers in the dash, or 6x9 speakers in your doors. A sound bar is also nice, because it also adds some light (typically).

I managed to fit 6x9's in my doors, and they work pretty well. Just need to find some of that fuzzy insulation stuff to stick behind the door to send all of the sound inside. Like I mentioned in my OP, my doors don't come off.

Did you ever see the write-up the guy did adding subs into the rear seat? Pretty trick set-up.
I'm trying to keep the electronics to a bare minimum in my Jeep, so no amps etc....
My DD Avalanche has the system and the DVD headrests etc...

Here's my sub box that I built for the only "dead space" in the JK. I have since cut the hole bigger and stuffed a 10" Polk MM in there. The carpet is back in but eventually will do some bedliner. Just deciding on a color since the black always seems to get white and ashy after a while.

I've got a set of 6.5's for sale if you need them.
