    Default Jimny rear speakers, or how to dismantle a Jimny

    Wizerd and I were talking about fitting rear speakers to the Jimny.
    I found this link, which shows how to dismantle 2/3rds of the Jimny to get to where the speakers go. Including removing the rear seats.

    I have build drawer system. The only problem is if you remove the seats the drawer won’t clear the door rim. In this case the drawer system is useless.

    Thats true, but my thinking was that if you make a bracket that is lifted about 150mm, you have storage space underneath the main drawer system and allowing the slides not to catch the bottom of the door. The system will also not be the entire width thus leaving more space for some loose items. My main objective is to have easier access for the fridge with a slide.

    One more thing is the weight of the fridge might topple over the drawer system.

    How difficult would it be to bolt the drawer system to the existing bolt-holes for the seats?

    Yes, and it works nicely.

    There is just a lot of things to remove to do it. I can do it in 2 hours but I work a lot with Suzuki’s. I am currently trying to get my Mounty’s equipment approved by Suzuki SA.

    I bought better speakers for the Jimny, thinking it would improve the audio, but it didn't work, infact the sound quality is a bit worse. I am thinking of putting the old ones back, and putting these new Pioneers in the back.

    How did you connect them to the radio? Does the radio have wires at the back for the rear channels, and if so, is it hard to get to them?

    Did you put a amp in or something. I really dont want a "sound system", just better sound quality.

    No amp. Just two new Sony, two way speakers at the back. The front speakers is the best you will get. There is speaker cables at the back on the passenger side you must just root one to the driver side. No to sure about the colour code though. But you must take everything out at the back to mount the speaker.

    Are both (L+R rear speakers' cables) in the passenger side, and you route one to the other side in the back, or do you have to route the right rear speakers cable from the front? Excuse all the questions, but I am sure a lot of guys will be interested.

    Thanks

    Hi Wizerd,

    What spec were the speakers that you put in the back?

    i.e. size, wattage, resistance etc.

    Hi Saxj / Wizerd,

    See attached page from Jimny factory technical manual. The rear speakers wires in the harness on the Jimny are colour coded as follows -

    Left speaker - (-) Light green/Black, (+) Light green/White

    Right Speaker - (-) Grey/Black, (+) Grey/White

    Hope this helps.....

    By the way, the left/rear and right/rear colours are actually the other way round. Well mine was. I swopped them last night. Therefore, light green is right and grey is left.

    I fitted the Sony speakers and I am rather dissapointed with the sound. Will see if I can find something slightly better. The sony's also don't fill the hole. The mounting brackets are in line with the screw holes, but the round body of the speaker is slightly smaller than the speaker hole in sidepanel. ANyone else tried a different speaker?

    Not a bad idea. I never thought of that. Do you have an amp running as well? Still the original radio?
