How To Remove Soundbar From Jeep Wrangle?

Many people don't like the overhead media bar in their Jeeps and want to take it off. The car will have more open space on the top without this device. 

It's simple to remove the media bar from your vehicle. You don't need to ask a mechanic to do it, just follow the instructions below.

Step 1: Remove the speakers

First, you need to take the speakers out of the soundbar. This step is to keep the speakers from getting damaged so that you can use them later. 

The number of loudspeakers in the bar will vary depending on the model of your Wrangler. Generally, you will find 2 to 6 speakers fixed in position by screws. 

You will need a screwdriver to turn the screws out. Remember to check the head of the screw to pick the right tool for unscrewing. 

After unscrewing, you can see the loudspeakers loosened from the bar. Now you can pull them out and separate them from the wires.

Once you take the loudspeakers out, store them in a safe place, and move on with the media bar. 

Most Jeeps will have this bar bolted to the top with six bolts. There are two bolts on each round part and two bolts on the cross-part. The necessary item to remove these bolts is a 10mm socket. 

You will start the uninstallation by loosening these bolts in turn. Remember to hold the bar while turning the bolts to prevent it from falling.

When you finish removing all the bold, you can detach the media bar from your Jeep.

How To Make The Jeep Wrangler Stereo Sound Better?

Listening to music while rolling on a Jeep Wrangler is an enjoyable experience. But many Jeeps don't have a good stereo system for you to enjoy the music to its fullest. 

If you are in this situation, here are some effective ways to make the stereo of your vehicle sound better. 

Install a subwoofer

Lack of low frequencies is one of the reasons why your car's stereo sounds flat. Installing a subwoofer will help you solve this problem. 

Subwoofers will add more bass to the stereo system and enhance the overall sound quality. Besides, when you add a subwoofer to your vehicle, other small loudspeakers will get less strain and work better.

You should choose a high-quality subwoofer for your Wrangler. As it's a multi-function audio device, the price is relatively high. Low-price subwoofers often come with low quality.

Upgrade the front speakers

The front speaker system is one of the two main parts of your Wrangler's audio system. It's responsible for most of the sounds produced. Thus, if you want to make the stereo sound better, you can upgrade the front speakers.

You can find these loudspeakers in the upper and lower part of the dashboard. Their small size is what limits their audio quality. So, you can upgrade them to the bigger ones for better sounds. 

This method won't cost you too much. Within $100, you can have a speaker upgrade kit. However, the installation is quite complex and time-consuming. 

You will have to disassemble a lot of small pieces to get to the speaker system. Then, after finishing the installation, it's necessary to reassemble them correctly. This process will take you several hours, even half a day. 

Besides, to make this upgrade, you need experience and knowledge about the car's dashboard. Otherwise, you can break it if there is any wrong assembly. Therefore, it's better to ask a professional technician to do this job for you.

Add an amplifier

Whether you install a subwoofer or upgrade the front speaker system in your Wrangler, you need to add an amplifier. 

This equipment will help increase the output from the stereo system. The best position for an amplifier is inside the dashboard. You can choose an ultra-compact amplifier to fit the dash.

Besides, it's possible to install the amplifier under your seat. However, your amp may get damaged when the car moves or get wet. Thus, it's necessary to have some measures to protect it. 

Upgrade the soundbar

If you have upgraded the front speakers but your Jeep Wranger still sounds bad, it's time to upgrade the soundbar. 

The media bar of your 4-wheels has the function of spreading the surrounding sounds. The best enhancement for this item is replacing all the speakers along with their cells.  

It will cost you some hundreds of dollars to get a new set of soundbar's loudspeakers. If you want to save more money, you can follow the steps below to improve the media bar.

  • Remove the soundbar's speakers and their cells. Remember to put them in proper order for re-assembly. 
  • Take off all speaker's wires, then use some sound skins to line the speaker's cell. These skins will help stop the vibration inside the cell. 
  • Cover the speaker's wires with foam before you reassemble them. In this way, they will produce less vibration and increase the audio quality. 
  • After you put the wires back to their position, you can add some polyfill. This polyester stuff will lower the echos and improve the overall sounding. Except for speaker positions, you need to fill all the remaining space in the media bar.
  • Attach the loudspeakers to the bar

Do the soundbar's upgrade will create more bass for your car's stereo system.

Besides, this improvement will help increase the volume of the music. More sounds will come to the back seat rows, and the passengers there can also enjoy the music. 

Install more speakers

Another way to improve the audio quality of your Wrangler's stereo system is to add some loudspeakers. 

There are many places you can install additional speakers in your car. The ideal positions are under the seats or inside the car's trunk.  Placing speakers in these positions will help keep your car spacious. 

However, if you have other plans for these spots, you should have some custom fabrications for your car. You can do it by yourself or hire a skilled fabricator. 

These fabrications will provide you with more space for adding loudspeakers. Also, they improve the interior look of your Wrangler.
