I wonder if they are that much better for 2X the price? I don't want to add a sub, or amp, etc. Been there - done that, and it gets pretty expensive! So let us know how the install goes (are you doing it yourself?) and how it sounds!

Thanks!
Yes I'm planning to do it myself, it's gonna be my first time.. wish me luck
I read lots of good reviews on the Imagine that's why I got them for the front doors over the Mirus, also the Imagine one is component set and comes with conversion kit while the Mirus is fixed coaxial (not sure if you can remove the tweeter and still you'll need phase plug)..
Wish I'll be satisfied with that setup for now and don't think about the sub, Stealthbox setup with amp and wiring will cost double what I paid so far for the HATs + Polk!

Re: Another WK2 Speakers Upgrade Thread

One more off-topic post, I've also replaced factory fog light bulbs with Osram night breaker unlimited H11 halogen bulbs...
There're not really white but definitely whiter than the factory bulbs and more importantly higher light output, here's the before & after:

Sorry, bad phone night photos..

Sherif, you're not happy with the sound quality?

I'm talking about the installation and fit of the tweeter..
Sound quality is great and it should get even better after the break in time (20 hours I think)..
Problem is the lack of good sub base now the factory sub is useless now..

Just installed the Mirus in the rear doors, sound quality is even better now...
Overall I'm very happy with this setup (Imagine I69-2V2 + Mirus M61-2 + Polk DB351), huge improvement in sound quality.. Speakers worth every penny 👍

For the rear doors, it was easy and can be a straight swap but I used brackets for a more solid/secured mount..

For the front doors, the 6X9 speakers fit in perfectly without brackets.. The hard part was fitting the tweeters, they didn't fit in the factory housing/mount and when I fitted them directly in the trim (after modifying the opening) they didn't look as clean as the Focal tweeters I've seen here from other members because the grille is not flat and has no "lip" to cover the modified opening but it's OK I can live with how they look as long as they sound great..

Sherif, congrats on the install! That is great news . . . Would you be able to post a sound clip with the new speakers? It would be awesome to actually hear how good they are!

Here's how the tweeter looks mounted:
ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1422553389.165378.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1422553402.136209.jpg

If I wasn't in a hurry to finish the install, maybe I could have figured out a better way to do it and honestly I don't want to go through removing the panels again

I can make a sound clip but I don't think it will do the speakers any justice! Recording on mobile or even camera, then processing and uploading and finally you listen to it on mobile or computer.. It'll never replicate how they really sound but I'll do it anyway.

Re: Another WK2 Speakers Upgrade Thread

Thanks for the videos, Sherif!! The speakers sound really good! But now it sounds like you might need to do something with the bass! LOL!
