These JKU Speaker Pods with Kicker speakers and amplifier are for those of you that have a four-door 2007 and up JK, and are looking to add some additional sound to your audio system to get more quality. And also more volume from that system. Now, there aren't a lot of places that you can easily bolt additional speakers into your JK. You can, of course, swap out the speakers that are in the dash or in the soundbar. You can swap out the factory tweeters that are on the dash. But if you're looking to add speakers, generally you had to purchase an enclosure and make it fit somewhere or custom-make something.These JKU Speaker Pods are going to mount on the very back side of your sport cage, where the sport cage starts to slant down as it comes over the back seat of your four-door JK. They're going to mount very, very easily, they're gonna mount right over top of the sport cage covering. And this kit is going to come with everything you need to fill those speaker pods and give you the sound that you're after.This is really going to be a one-stop shop for you. This is going to come with the speaker pods themselves. It's going to come with a pair of kickers, six and three quarter-inch mid to bass range components. It's also going to come with a pair of tweeters that will go right in your JKU Speaker Pods as well. And it's going to come with not just an amp to power them, but also a pair of crossovers so you're making sure that you get the proper frequency to both the mid speakers and to the tweeters, as well as the rest of the wiring and the hardware that you need to get this kit installed. So it really is fully inclusive, it really does have everything that you're gonna need to get things going.Now, you can just purchase this kit with the pods and the speakers, without the amplifier. And you can just purchase the speaker pods by themselves if you choose to stick your own components in them. So, you do have some flexibility there. This is, of course, going to be the most expensive kit offered out of the three because it does have all the components that you see here, but it is really a one-stop shop.So for those of you that aren't that comfortable with automotive audio, who don't have a lot of experience with it, who don't wanna have to piece together a kit and just hope all the components work together, this is something where it all comes in one box. You know it's all gonna work together, you just have to get it installed. And for everything that's gonna come in this box, I do think this is pretty fairly priced. You're going to get a much better sound quality, as well as a lot more volume out of this system.The speaker pods themselves, which are available individually, are going to be molded plastic, they're gonna mount very easily onto that sport cage. They will hold either a six-and-a-half or a six-and-three-quarter inch component. This kit comes with the six and three quarter-inch speakers and again, they're a mid to bass range, as well as the smaller tweeters that are gonna go right in there.The amplifier that comes with this kit is going to be a smaller amp, both in physical size and also in wattage. This puts out about 250 watts, which is gonna be more than enough to drive these new speakers that you just added, although if you wanted to get the kit without the amp and add something a little bit bigger, of course, you could. These speakers are going to take a max of 300 watts so, of course, you do wanna be careful about overpowering things.The amplifier itself does have a crossover built right into it, however, you are going to to get individual crossovers here. Each of those is going to have an output for both your mid and your tweeter, so you're going to be able to separate all of your frequencies out and make sure that the proper speakers are getting the proper frequencies so you're getting a nice crisp and clean sound, not getting anything that's muddled or distorted.And finally, over here you're going to have a wiring harness that's going to make it very easy to wire up your amplifier. And you're also gonna get some wires that are going to allow you to run the power up to your speakers from your amplifier, so the install is going to be a pretty easy set-up.Even though this is a pretty easy install, I am gonna stick with a two out of three wrenches on it because there is going to be a little bit of wiring involved. Everything that you need is included, but you're going to have to cut some wires. You're going to have to crimp some ends on and make some connections. So again, two out of three wrenches. If you're not comfortable with automotive wiring or with automotive audio, chances are you're gonna wanna take this to a shop and have them install it for you. But if you do have some experience in those areas, this is definitely something that you can tackle in your driveway, get everything wired up and get the additional sound that you're looking for from this system.So the first step is going to be getting the speakers mounted up into the JKU pods. From there, you can get the pods themselves mounted onto the sport cage. Once they're mounted up, you'll go ahead and install your amplifier wherever you choose to install it, and you will wanna put it somewhere that it's not gonna get wet, it's not gonna get dusty. Because they can be a little bit finicky. Once you have that mounted, you'll find a spot for your crossovers to go. And once they're mounted, it's just a matter of wiring everything up. And that's where this wiring harness comes in, it's gonna make things a lot easier getting everything wired up than it would be if you were to just do it from scratch. Once everything's done, fire up the system and you'll have that additional sound quality and volume that you're looking for.Like I said, this system is going to be the most expensive of the three different options that are offered. This is going to come with the speakers and the amp and it's gonna run you right around $400. And while it is the more expensive of the three options offered, I still think it's a very good price for everything that you're getting. And for the peace of mind of knowing that everything that comes out of the box is going to work very, very well together. You can step down to about $265 if you wanted the kit without the amp. And the speaker pods themselves are around $115 if you wanna stuff them with your own components.So if you're looking for a pretty easy one-stop shop to add some additional sound quality and volume to your JK, I'd definitely recommend taking a look at this kit, and you can find it right here at extremeterrain.com.

If purchasing Option # 2 with speakers (No amp) does the kit still include all wiring necessary just for speakers?
Yes, if purchasing with Kicker 6.75 in. speakers only, wiring is included for just the speakers.
Are these meant to replace the speakers in the soundbar or can they be used along with the soundbar?
The JKU Speaker Pods are meant to be installed and used in addition to existing stereo equipment.
These say they can be bought with speakers and an amp? Do they mean tweeters, or does it really come with an amp?
The JKU Speaker Pods can be purchased without speakers, with speakers, or with speakers and their own amplifier.
The description specs say they will not fit the 2 door JK but under the "will it fit my jeep" tab it states that it fits the 2016 JK and the 2016 JK Unlimited. Does it fit the 2 door or not?
The JKU Speaker Pods are specifically designed to be used on the 2007-2017 Jeep Wrangler JK 4-Door models.
Can you buy these speaker pods empty?
Yes, they can be purchased without speakers, simply select that option before adding the item to the cart.
This would be able to accept a speaker/ sub of 6.5-6.75 inches.
This will not fit TJ models.
You would have to order option number 3 to have those included in your kit. I apologize for the confusion!
These are specifically designed to mount in the rear on the factory sport cage.
The Select Increments JKU Speaker Pods would be compatible with your setup. These can be used with the OEM stereo and do not require disabling the amp.
You will need to splice into your rear speaker wires for these to work.
These pods will accept 6.5 or 6.75 inch speakers.
Unfortunately we would be able to determine this without determining the clearances with your specific mounting solution.
The Select Increments JKU Speaker Pods will work with a fastback style Soft Top or Hard Top.
