Dave, Looking forward to seeing those pics too.
Crutchfield site shows those as 5-1/4" but the trucks take 6-1/2", I thought. What do you get in the kit? 2 speakers, 2 tweets, and 2 crossovers? The description isnt very clear.

The defender is 6-1/2". You could use the 6-1/2" versions instead. http://www.crutchfield.com/S-ok5uez5...10&I=1086010CS

Yes, it would be 2 tweets, 2 crossovers and 2 woofers.


I like this JL set... http://marine.jlaudio.com/products_c...hp?prod_id=371 along with http://marine.jlaudio.com/products_c...hp?prod_id=381 for the rear. Amp http://marine.jlaudio.com/products_amps.php?amp_id=261

I put new speakers in my 95...the stock LR speakers were 5-1/4"...I replaced them with 6" MB Quarts that I got off ebay for about $90 per pair. NO distortion...great clean sound and plenty of bass...just using my stock LR head unit with no amp etc. Try em you'll like em. Oh, and you have to open up the enclosure opening a little with snips due to the size difference from stock speakers to the MB Quart 6 inchers.

Here are the photos. I hadn't looked at the amp since I installed 5 months ago, but damn is it ugly. I may have to pull it and spray it... The amp sits on a 2 inch billet plate I had machined to raise it off the floor.

pics of the console show the ipod, nicely tucked away. The sub is in the rear. Only pictures I forgot were the overhead speakers in the headliner.

The speaker crossovers barely fit in the door panels due to their thickness but they work.

Sorry for the quality, I didn't get home until late and it is dark.

Damn, Dave. I see DIRT there. You've been slacking off. I guess that's married life, huh?
Haha
Nicely done, as always!

Ken, It has been awhile, I think the last time I saw you, you were upside down at MAR

Here is what I have in my 90 if you want specifics I will have to grap them at home.

An alpine 9857 or 2 I forget, XM ipod control.
4 kenwood 6.5s not a kenwood guy, but I needed grills on my speakers and these were the best the store had with grills, and honestly they sound great, don't waste your money on components, it is a defender.

2 JL w3 10s in custom boxes, I built the boxes over the wheelwells and incorporated an enclosure for the 6.5s so they sounded good.

2 alpine v12 amps and a cap.
I have two yellow tops under the seat.

I dynomated the front doors and the back wheel wells . Truck is loud and I can here the tunes at 70 with the top off

I don't have the pics on this computer but if you want to see them I can post them later.

Aren't you worried about it getting stolen?

man there are so many speakers and such availible I was looking at the Crutchfield.com It would be nice if you could "try em out" to find what sounded the best. I really need to replace mine exploded xplods.

find a local car audio shop and go to them and try em out, we have a few shops here in nashville and the one thats sells JL's is tweeter and they did great work on my LR3. Just look around because I wouldn't buy a piece of car audio without testing it out.

Here are my pics, I didn't show the front doors, because I am sure you can figure out how a 6.5 goes in, and the head unit. It has XM and Ipod controller, Xm unit and Ipod are inside the tuffy locked up and protected from elements and thieves.

Follow-up Post:

just got this email and in case anybody else was wondering I will post it here.


What is the material you used to house your amp and cap? Custom, I assume. You dual battery...It doesnt look like they are teamed/connected. Just sitting in the same area, correct? What's holding the batteries down? I have a red and yellow top and havent decided if I can get away with just leaving them unsecured. What do you think?


They batteries are bolted down from the inside with custom brackets, the top has a trim panel with black covering to clean it up. the batteries are run to isolators in the box, and that is where they are connected, I used JL isolators for the project. I run my winch and lights off the second battery, and everything else off the front, but I can use the second to start the truck if there are problems with the first. It is tight in there so they wouldn't move too much, but I recommend securing them, because if they pulled a wire loose and you touched a ground to a positive while the batteries won't burn it could cause some serious issues to your truck, so I would take the time and secure them.

I housed my amps on custom 1/2 oak wood, then had them linexed, then took pipe brackets, painted black and secured to the roll cage, amps and cap are screwed in.

hope this helps.

If you look real close at the boxes along the back seat, with the 6.5s in front of them you will see a two inch gap, the boxes are that size to house the 10s one on each side. The subs face down and aren't visible at all so I don't have to worry about weather on the subs, those boxes are linexed also. Under both boxes is all dynomated and the boxes are screwed into the wheelwells.

what part, the linexing was like 120, the boxes took about a week to make and cost me probably 150 in materials when it was done, with all the fiberglass I put in. about 2900 in stereo stuff, 90 in wiring for the batteries alone, not to mention buying two of those badboys at once, Dynamat, plus a lot of time in the garage,

If anybody wants to see it in detail or hear it in detail I will be at MAR.
