2014 JGC limited 4 channel

Ok so I've been trying to install a 4 channel plus a sub in my JGC. I'm using a audiocontrol lc7i for the processor. So for this who have installed 4 channels in there rides did you wire it before the stock amp or after the stock. Also it has the 9 alpine speaker system but replaced the front and rear doors with focal components and speakers. Anybody with any good info would really appreciate it

Just curios why you went with the LC7i over a DSP? Was that recommended to you?

I hear ya. I can tell you this, it might be worth it if you can find one used.
You need to sum and de-equalize the signal from the head unit.

I used Audison, there are many others that do the same. The ability to fine tune the system is priceless, and in the end you will have clarity just as good as a aftermarket deck.

Just my 2 cents.

Install it after the amp. The instructions state this. I've used the LC6i in Chrysler Alpine, and now using it in Chrysler Boston system. Since you have the Alpine system, you'll need to sum 6 channels in order to get a full-range signal to your amp. You'll want to sum the sub, front doors, and front tweets. If this doesn't produce a decent sound, substitute the rear door speakers for the front tweets. I had to do this in my Ram, but it had 3" dash tweets instead of 1" like the WK2. With the sub, front door, and rear door summed, this proved with best full-range signal for me. On a (minor) downside, you now can't fade much between front and rear. You may have to play with it a lot -- as these systems are a real PITA. I also had to move the GND jumper on the LCxi in order to eliminate a minor turn-off click after opening driver's door.

The LC6/7i are the cheapest solutions available. BUT, you may still want more. The summed signal requires a lot of EQ'ing -- as Chrysler Alpine/Boston like to boost treble, and have a real crappy signal to begin with. It could get real bright with your Focals. I'm wanting the DQ-61 now. My LC6i works flawlessly in my OE Boston car (0 noise), but I desperately need more EQ-ing ability. The DQ-61 would be a direct swap -- install would be a piece of cake.
