      Thomas,


      I have the fender speaker pods, now that i have them i wish i went a different route. don't get me wrong there good pods but if you are planning on doing a lot of highway and freeway driving , you will not hear them. if your just cruising around town there great.i put mine on last year before eureka springs and we could not hear the music all that well, so i had slingtunes put a set of 8'' speakers and pods in the front. i will getting a set that goes beside the seat also.

    • run a 4 channel amp for the speakers. here the speakers before you buy. it makes a different in the speakers you buy. run the speakers on there on channels that makes a big difference for sound.

      if you are going to run the jl w6 subwoofer . that thing is a beast and it needs space so one of your back boxes are going plus you are going to need alot of insulation to sound proof that box. been there done that not need. look at the 10 inch jl tw3 slim you cant go wrong.

      i am not into spending 300 to 600 on pods for the front. look at making something your self. and spend that money on some really good speakers like the focals, hertz, morels. all you need up front is 6.5 pair thats it.

      one last thing if you want the highs i recommend the compression tweets by herts at 199. or just put in compression 3 inchers from jbl which will knock you out at how good they sound.

      If I am tracking, advise the 5 channel amp vice the 4 you mention. I have the jl audio 700/5 AND LOVE it. The 5th channel runs the amp, 2 channel for the fender speakers, and 2 channels for the inside pods

      @McClendons Good to hear that! I am just about to buy that very same amp! I might have to update my alternator at some point but i have updated my battery for now (Optima)
    • @ThomaSS question about your front pods and speakers, looks like the front pods have a depth of 2 3/16in (according to slingmods) and most speakers im looking at are listed as 2 1/2in or deeper. Looks like the Memphis you used are 2 1/2 deep as well (according to Crutchfield), did you have any issues with the depth of those speakers? I really want front and rear pods but want to make sure I can put the same speakers in both. Thanks
