Upper mounted rear speakers

So I posed this question on the tail end of a speaker thread with little result - figured I'd give it its own thread and see if someone can point me in the right direction...

Looking for rear speaker housings that mount in the upper rear corners of a SW. I first noticed this on, if I remember correctly, murph's red 90. Haven't come across an option, but was hoping maybe some of you have.

As always, thanks so much in advance!

Cheers!
Aaron

My rear speakers are upper mounted behind the alpine windows, but that is using the accessory speaker mounts that come with a LaSalle headliner.

This is what I have on my RoW SW.

I don't think it's quite what you're looking for but maybe it could give you an idea. Modified some kick panel speaker rings then riveted to the roof with some L brackets. I've enjoyed having the speakers up and out of the way

the nice thing about having speakers high is they don't get muffled when you are fully loaded, and they are protected during any wading event.

Mark - the headliner is cheating!! Although it may be a good excuse to buy a La Salle... I may be relegated to having something fabbed up, but I figured someone might have stumbled across a solution at some point. For the SW's the upper corners are loads better than where the factory decided to mount them.

There is no such thing as cheating in Darwinism.

Have you considered adapting a Jeep sound bar? I'm sure that it would fit nicely over the rear door

Thats actually not a bad idea... I may have a lead on another product that is possibly in the works for production. If anything becomes of it, I'll definitely post up the results. In the meantime, I may have to consider "evolving" with a snazzy fiberglass headliner...

man....it is no wonder I see jeeps running around totally accessorized!!! Everything to buy is so inexpensive! If any of their stuff was for a LR I expect it would be double.

The dimensions are not that far off between Jeeps and Defenders. With a little patience and imagination, I'm sure a lot of those accessories will fit a Defender quite nicely

. We make a custom board that covers the whole area above back windows and doors. We cover it to match then put in 5.25s. Looks clean sounds great
