There is a little mini grill on both sides of the sound bar in front of the speaker. Does anybody know what it is??

When the salesman was going over all of the features with me after I purchased it, he said it was for noise cancellation. I didn't get the Alpine system and he said it came with the base. Who knows if that's actually correct, but if he's right about it being for noise cancellation then I would think it would be there on base and Alpine; it just may not be usable with base.

From the owners manual :
  1. The microphone is positioned on the rearview mirror and aimed at the driver.

Having just posted this, I just went and looked again at my JLU Sport and there is nothing on the mirror. There are two openings above the mirror tho that are most likely microphone/s. The manual lied as best I can tell.

Yeah, I was just thinking the mic would be somewhere in front of the driver like with the JK. With that said the 2 little vents in the sound bar are probably related to noise canceling.

The Sahara/Rubi and the Sport/Sport S use different rearview mirrors.

Most likely noise cancellation or at least an empty grill for a mic for noise cancellation if not standard.

Could it be a tweeter?
The websites states the base system includes 8 speakers. Where are all these speakers? Two in the dash and 6 in the sound bar?

Totally understand. Usually the manual lets you know if something is "if equipped" or not. No mention on the page where I found this. Since I see nothing else on mine that could be the mic, it has to be above the review mirror.
