Speaker Update !

I had posted earlier (several times) about swapping out my dash speakers and front doors and having too much mid, clarity and a cab forward sound because I really couldn't hear my rear doors that well...if at all.
Anyways, bit the bullet, had a stereo shop install a Bazooka 8" preamped subwoffer in the rear cargo and the bass now fills the jeep and it makes for a much better and fuller sound.
There is just no way I would have got the base I was looking for by swapping my back door 6.5" speakers.
So, happy for now, good clean sound and deep lows coming from the back.
All on a cheap budget.
Just wanted to pass that along in case anyone else was in the same boat.
When you replace stock speakers, you get a cleaner sound with more mids and higher trebel with tweaters, but to bring in that bass you need either a subwoofer system (much more $$) or get a bazooka 8" or 10" installed inthe back. It's a complete unit.
Still may do the back door speakers at some point just so I can hear more volume from them, but happy for now.

Re: Speaker Update !

You definitely went the right route installing a subwoofer instead of replacing rear door speakers if you wanted better base. Installing better rear door speakers would be a very ineffective way to improve your base. The rear door speakers are really for people sitting in the rear seat (for stereo application, surround sound is different). Sound frequencies greater than sub base become increasingly directional so you lose a lot of what is coming out of the rear speakers in the front, they just muddle up imaging. Now that you have a sub, if you decide you want better mid to treble frequencies, install better components in the front, you want those frequencies in front of you.

This is my understanding anyway. Hope this helps, and good luck with your system.
