    I have a damaged right front speaker, I have seen repair kits, I have doubts, repair speaker, buy a new one or I replace the entire audio system.
    Does the repair kit work well or is it better to change everything?

    I don't know the technical specs of the speaker, can someone tell me, inches, watts and ohms of the original speaker?
    It may be one more option before buying everything new.

    Another option: OEM speaker from a junkyard.

    - will be plug and play with the existing system & wiring
    - will be inexpensive
    - easy to swap out

    What year is your KJ? I have a speaker hanging on one loose screw I can send you for cheap. Just went into my parts jeep door for a mirror switch and door-stop.

    Thx, I hadn't thought of this, although it's like buying a lottery ticket.

    I'm pretty far from you, but the shipping cost would possibly exceed the cost of the speaker, thanks anyway.

    Yeah, I'm pretty far from everybody. Shipping is outrageous.

    I think I will completely upgrade the whole system, now the decision is to keep the original format or upgrade to 2Din
    Any 2Din recommendation that works well and fast?
