Finally took delivery of my 2020!

So, in starting to dig into it, I discovered the drivers down low have very small openings to allow the sound through. Meaning that changing to a larger driver in the dash may not yield much more output without figuring out how to enlarge the openings.

Toneloc, had you seen that? I know you were talking about putting your drivers in the doors, but I would still like to be able to remove mine from time to time.

Cheers,

well congrats man on the 2020.. any pics of your new baby?
her is a pic were i'm at on my doors don't really want to post more till i get closer.. don't think your going to have much luck on those dash pods. at least 6.5 wise.... you could do doors.. you can simply run speaker wires to the dash pods when you run without your doors. the factory plug is very accessible.

Holy shit balls, man!! You have absolutely killed it!

Those look amazing and there really couldn't be a better solution to getting mid bass in a Wrangler, then what you've done there!!

thanks guys.. only thing i would of done different is the grill type, but it is what it is... at least there is more air volume then there was in the jk, so mid-bass response should be a bit better.

Definitely. Slap those panels on the doors and let's see how they look!

Those are amazing! Your work is killer!

The issue with you doing a build like this is that it makes me want to go bonkers on mine, which I really shouldn't do. At least that is what I keep telling myself...

Cheers,

Looks great man! Post here and there, it's really taking off at CAJ and the vibe is great. I'll be posting less and less here, and more over there.


I still can't get over the door panels... You should make a thread about them alone.

Nice work man. Pods turned out very well. Get my Jeep back next week after 33 month engine swap so finally I can focus on important stuff like midbass placement. Tuning my bimmer now. Neighbors probably like, ‘what is that weirdo doing in backseat of car for hours on end’. lol.

Hey Toneloc,

I went with the Hybrid Audio L3SE for the dash, Unity 2 ohm 6.5's for knee area and the Zapco ADSP-Z8 IV-8 amp/dsp and a pac pro to integrate to factory headunit. I will use my Sundown SD3 sub in a sealed box in the back cubby area. The idea is a simple/stealth install that sounds great.

Cheers,
