These new Overhead Sound Wedges from Vertically Driven Products come with 6.5 high-output speakers, an adjustable dome/map light in each, and all necessary wiring and mounting hardware. The black textured plastic housing is tough and weather-resistant. Fits in all 1987-06 Wranglers. Drilling required for installation in 1987-95 Wranglers.
I was replacing factory speaker pods that contained a maximum of a 5.25" speaker. These hold a 6.5" speaker, but the ones that come with the pods are very low quality, and if you appreciate good sound, they will have to be replaced. Be careful about what speakers you choose, the holes in the pods are very large, and some 6.5" speakers will almost fall through them, making screwing them down difficult.
They are "almost" a bolt-in replacement for '03 Wranglers. The wiring harness that is in the pods use a different connector then the factory units. I had to remove the factory speaker pod wiring and install it into the VDP pods. To do this I had to enlarge the wiring holes in the pods to 3/4" dia. Not a big chore, but it lengthened the installation time.
It says the dome/map lights are "adjustable". If On/Off is "adjustable", then I guess they are.
Otherwise, a usable utilitarian speaker pod.

Not bad...but certainly an improvement over what I had which was just two front speakers with my older Sony deck. The installation was frustrating, to say the least...but I got 'em in. I paid an additional $25 to have them wired to my existing system. At least now I can hear my music fairly well at highway speeds in my '91 YJ. I will probably need to add a sub and/or change out the 6" speakers for better quality to achieve better sound quality, but all in good time.
