    components are a best bet for any car, even a Pinto. Look into brands such as alpine and other top name brands, NOT SONY OR KENWOOD. you have a reasonable budget, so get searchin

    $400 is actually a great budget and if you are adventureous or trusting enough some great deal can be had on ebay for alpine, focal, infinity, cdt, and even rainbows! Personally I would stick with trusted brands and if you have to buy retail to amke you feel better then really haggle with the guy and compare prices across several stores.

    Sidenote: I bought my components off ebay and recently one blew but I was able to buy a replacement through a retailer and with that cost added to the original price I still saed money.

    400 dollars is def a nice budget.Those stock speakers in those jeeps are just flat out horrible.3-way comp sets are nice but any comp set(that u can fit) should work out good and make a huge difference.Just make sure u buy a amp for ur components and a new head unit if possible.U wont regret it.

    has anyone ever put comps in the sound bar of the jeep? also i was looking at the http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/S...=0&cc=01&avf=N (i know there is much better places to buy them.......... also suggesitons welcome as far as new speakers but the front have to be 4X6's and the rear have to be 5 1/4"). as far as the comps go i was wonering if i would have to drill the new holes for the tweeters ? or wat have yall done. as far as comps i was looking at http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=12487 also when u buy componant speakers do they come with one or two sets?

    Re: $400 and a lot of thinking

    Im not sure abotu the sound bar thing but im sure it could be done.If u have 4x6s in the front and thats all u can fit no big deal just make sure u get a amp.I had some 4x6s one time and they sounded decent with a good amp.But as the sound bar goes id imagine u could fit components in there just try to get some where u have the option of actually mounting the tweeter in the center of the midrange if drilling isnt an option.Just a few things to consider.Hope this helps.
