Nice write up! This was actually my plan for this weekend to figure out how to get to all the speakers in the car but my car has been at the dealership all weekend .

Can't wait to put speakers in my Renny.


Thanks

Glad that this was so helpful. I've relied on others pioneering work with tearing their cars apart in the past, so I'm glad to be able to give something back.

Sweet post, certainly on my list of things to do but down the road a bit... Good to have an example to follow

Gatorade, I was wondering something... Are the front door speakers and the 3 inch in the dash wired parallel or series? (I know this is a lazy question.) I want to order speakers that will match the ohm rating of my amp.


As a side note, what are the stock speakers, 4 ohm?


Also kicker 6x9s look perfect.

Good question. I honestly don't know. Have to see if a wiring diagram surfaces.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the Back door panel removal and speaker install. I have all the tools and speakers on standby. Thanks again!

Just wanted to add that, YES the front dash speaker covers DO just pop off. I used a swiss army knife to pry open the bottom corner (closest to the center of the vehicle) and the rest popped off using my fingers. My plastic trim pry tool was too thick to get in the crack between the dash and the cover, so I used a small knife. The speaker itself is a puny little speaker that doesn't even look big enough to be a 3 inch-er.

Awesome Info

Just got my Renegade yesterday, traded in the Jeep Commander, after 10 years. Sad day indeed. In anycase I have the 5.0 Radio with the subwoofer in the rear. Do you know if I could use a wire harness like that to go from the factory subwoofer to a secondary woofer, like an amplified Bazooka tube?
