    Can someone tell me where all of the speakers are located? I doubt that any would be in the doors since the doors are removeable. And I know at least 2 would be in the dash and at least 2 would be in the roll bar. And I know that there is a bass speaker in the center behind the back seat. So I just wonder where the rest of them are. Thanks to advise.

    With the exception of the sub being behind the rear seats, the rest of the speakers should be in identical positions to the 4 door JL. 4 in the dash, 4 in the speaker bar.

    Thanks Gecko. I don’t own a Wrangler so I had no idea that Jeep put 4 speakers in the dash and another 4 in the speaker bar/roll bar.

    If the rag top version really does have a glass rear window then it sure would have been great to stow it behind the back seat. I was told yesterday by someone from Jeep that a glass rear window for the rag top version would be an option. Unfortunately the bass speaker in the middle would make that impossible. Sure would be nice to get one without that bass speaker for this reason. After all I think that 8 speakers is more than enough sound and the bass may not be needed, may be overkill.

    As someone who paid for the Infinity upgrade in my JK only to have to pull it all out and replace with better components, I will take overkill every time.

    Hey Gecko do you by chance have any pictures of the 4 dash speakers and and of the 4 speaker bar speakers? I zoomed in on the speakers from the speaker bar and it looks like one big speaker on each side. And further to the front of the truck and to the side you will see a tiny mesh screen covering up something. At first I thought it possibly could cover up the microphone for the hands free telephone. But there’s another one on the passenger side. So could they be 2 different microphones for the phone system? Or could they be very small tweeter speakers for the stereo system? If these are not phone microphones or tweeter speakers then I just wonder where the other 2 speaker bar speakers are as I can only see just one big speaker on each side of the speaker bar.

    And I have not seen any pictures of any of the Gladiator dash speakers. So please post what pictures you may have. Thanks much.

Looks like one speaker is just below the steering wheel, bottom left of one of these pictures. And it looks like another one is in the same spot, bottom right of the other picture. Have not seen any good, complete shots of the dash itself. But all I can tell is that there appears to be just one speaker to the far left of the dash top and just one speaker to the far right of the dash top.

    For the roll bar speakers I can only clearly see one big speaker on the right and one big speaker on the left of the roll bar. No clue where the other 2 roll bar speakers are. Does anyone have pictures of all 4 roll bar speakers? Love to see them. Thanks

There’s 2 big ones on the top of the dash, one to the far left and one to the far right. And the other 2 dashboard speakers are located at knee level, one to far left by the drivers side and the other one to the far right one the front passenger side.

    And on the roll bar there is a total of 4 more speakers. There’s one big one on each side and one ittsy bittsy teeny tiny tweeter speaker on each side. I have circled it in one of the pictures. Listened to the stereo and it sounds great.
