Has anyone changed the speakers in their JL to 6.5" components? Im wondering if a 6.5" woofer will fit in the knee locations and sound bar with fabrication?

I’m curious about this as well. Just picked up a 19 Rubicon Unlimited with the Alpine system and it SUCKS

I'm in the process of doing this and I'll post a thread with all the details in the next week or so once it's finished. 6.5's in the knee panels isn't happening. My fabricator however did get 6.5's in the soundbar and even that took quite a bit of fabrication as the stock speakers are only 3.5-4". We're taking measurements as we go, so I'll have more information over the next couple of days.

Thats what I've heard. 6.5's will have to be put in Soundbar with some Cutting of the actual sounder. I'm interested in what your fabricator came up with.

How come no one has made a custom sound bar for the Jl’s. I have a good bit of money tied up in a aftermarket sound system but I’m still not the happiest with it. I haven’t had anyone fab anything though.

Got any pics or measurements yet?
