XJ Soundbar


My new (new to me, at least) red Jeep came with a very basic sound system. There are two speakers in the doors, and that's it. Some models offered rear sound either from a soundbar over the cargo area or a pair of speakers in the rear hatch. My first Cherokee, the red '89 Pioneer, had hatch speakers while the white '96 Cherokee "Stinky" had the soundbar.

When I picked up red, there was a large amp and subwoofer in the back - not only am I not a fan of subwoofers, it was taking up valuable cargo space. I traded it out for a soundbar that will be installed shortly.

Pics to follow. The install was a major pain in the butt, but not for the reasons you'd think.
