Finally able to upgrade. Well, not really upgrade as I had nothing before, but still...

What's the best way to get decent sound in a '91 YJ with a soft top? I have considered cutting the console and installing a sub in there, but not sure it would sound all that great. Should I get a soundbar and, if so, what type?

Trying to maintain as much space as possible. The idea had crossed my mind though.

I have a 12 inch sub behind my rear sit in my 1993 YJ and then just some nice 4 by 6's in the front.. also put some speakers that are velcrowed down on each side of the rear seat on the wheel well.. it gets the job done...

There is a company that sells a 10" sub that doubles as a center counsel. Amp and Sub included.

I've kick the idea around a few times now. They also sell some 6x9 boxes that sit at the base of the roll bar in the rear as well.

2 center Consoles

I have a 4 channel amp under the backseat and 4 6" speakers in the back (2 on each wheelwell). Sounds very good. I was thinking of adding a sound bar too, but now with gas being what it is, I'll prob. ditch it in the summer or fall. If I can get some batteries for my camera I'll post a pic.

You can get speaker mount kits to run some 6 1/2"s on the roll bar like the newer wranglers.

as for a sub in the console you could go to a wreckers and get a center console from a newer jeep with an 8" sub installed.
