Hi,
Along the same line as Bill's question, what size speakers can easily be stuffed in the rear on a '96 Trooper? BestBuy and Sear's computer didn't even list an application. Also, how important is it to match speaker? I know i put pioneers in the front, but I can't remeber exactly what they are.

Adam, your rear speakers are 5" in diameter but you can easily go with 5 1/4" and if they do not fit into the plastic enclosure (in depth), all you will have to do is cut the back plastic wall (of the enclosure) out.
Very easy 30 minute job from start to finish.
It is not very importamt to have same brand speakers all around but try to at least note how powerful they are so that the difference is NOT too great, especially that rears in this car are smaller than fronts where usually it should be the other way around.

I have Infinity Kappa 6 1/2" 2way's in the front, and Alpine 3way's in the back, no amp, no eq, no x over's - nothing, Just a 35x4 head unit and above mentioned speakers, and it sounds damn good!!!

Hope it helps. :wink:

I tried to put 5 1/2" speakers in my 92 Trooper, but would not allow me to put the factory cover back on. So I bought a pair of MB Quart 4" speakers and make an adapter plate out of 1/4" plywood. Works very well and you can't tell it had been done because of the factory covers.

I have the best install for everyone to do. I did this in my 98 Trooper, until I moved the speakers to my Vehicross. I used some Infinity 61/2" components. The components are the key. Since the woofer doesnt have a tweeter suspended in the middle taking up space, the 61/2 can be mounted in the factory hole with no chopping, and the factory cover used. They have to be pressed in pretty good, but I never had them pop off. they did bulge a slight bit due to the metal around speaker, but not too noticeable. the 3 mounting screws do need to be drilled in the plastic though. speaker depth must not be too deep, so compare different models. I just velcroed the tweeters high above the back doors as you can run the wires behing the plastic to them. the crossover box for the components i double taped in the speaker hole under the speaker. The job sounds great, but that location just has horrible bass response location wise no matter what. I would recommend some dynamat at least a little in the hole. If anyone is unsure if a certain speker will fit, I would recommen secondly to use a 5 1/4 component, and least a 5 1/4 2 way speaker, although it doesnt matter greatly at all except optimum tweeter placement with components. Good Luck
