Question New speakers

Hey all. I just installed new Jl speakers to the sides of my console. I have a fusion ra 200 unit but I have one problem. I couldn't hear the radio when I'm running with my old speakers before Jl I want to install speakers under my top so I can hear it. What speakers does anyone recommend and where to install. Thanks

Don't do it. The highs will blow u out from under the top. Power ur other speakers with an amp.

Thanks for the heads up. What amp do you recommend ? I had junk dual speakers in there previously and that could have been the reason why I couldn't hear them.

Is there a bulkhead upfront that you could add two more speakers that would face back towards you?

I would get a JL M200/2 amp if you're only gonna have two speakers. If you add two more get the M400/4

Either way you need to add an amp to give you a lot more volume that is crisp and clean.

No there is nowhere else to mount more speakers unless I get a speaker box from Stryker tops for my top. I didn't really wanna go that route because I have unit mounted in the console

Put them near the forward edge of your T-top, facing rearward.
