Rear pillar speaker size

I just purchased a 2014 Limited that came with the standard six speaker system. I have already started taking the Jeep apart to start working on an upgraded system.

One thing that I am thinking of doing is buying a set of replacement pillars in the back and putting a set of speakers there instead of in the rear doors (new baby on the way so would prefer not having speakers near the baby).

My question to the forum is what size speakers go into the factory panels?

Re: Rear pillar speaker size

Greetings,

The size is a 2.5 inch for the rear panel. Typical this type of driver is going to be full range. You can order the replacement panels with the speaker openings from Jeep and the OEM dealers should have them by now. The maximum size you can play with additional mods is up 4 inches.

Now since you have indicated that you are going to have an new off-spring to the family, the worse thing to do is get a rear pillar speaker that has a lot of high frequencies. The speaker is going to be near the new born's ear. You are better off in getting a coaxial speaker that you can tilt the tweeter downwards for the rear door. As of the tweeter stay away from the metal ones. Again, this is not good for the baby in the long run.

Depending on your setup, if are going with an aftermarket DSP, many of them now you can setup for the example the rear door as bandwidth type crossover. This way you limit the bass and the highs.

Congrads on the new one.

Best for now.

Re: Rear pillar speaker size

1stJeepGC,

Thanks I caught your post with the HAT's in the rear pillars. I appreciate the comment about the rear pillars actually being closer to the baby's ears; I did not think of that...

My rears will be turned way down and used more as fill via my 360.3.

I may PM you some questions later as I get further into my build.

Thanks,

Brian
