I recently purchased a 99 Jeep Sahara. I want to have a decent system installed ASAP!!!
In my previous car I was focused on having a purely SQ setup. I will obviously no longer be focused on SQ in a Jeep with a flowmaster and the top down. Of course I'd still like clarity, I simply won't be obsessed with it now. I suppose loudness is now the most important issue.
For those of you who don't know, 5.25" speakers will fit up front in a Jeep and 6.5" speakers fit in a soundbar, or pods, that mount directly above the seats on the rollbar. Now for the speakers I've been looking at...
The JL VR-series 2-ways or RF HPC 2-ways. The RF's are about $30-$50 cheaper per pair, have a slightly higher RMS than the JL's, and their frequency range stats claim that they put out alot more bass than the JL's. Would the RF's be a better application for a Jeep? Why are the JL's so much more expensive if they can't perform as well as the RF's? What should I go with?
Also, what about a sub? I'd like to have just 1 12" sub for the Jeep and I was leaning towards a JL W6. From reading up about this sub, I understand that it is pretty neutral.... both clear and loud. However, I've also been reading that it's overpriced. If you all suggest that I go with the Rockford 5.25s and 6.5s, should I just save the money and get my boom from a RF sub as well (again, since a Jeep's soundstage doesn't provide for clarity)?
Please offer any suggestions or advice
Many thanX and cheers
