6 speaker system w/ Alpine Power Pack

Hello everyone...new to the forums, picking up my '15 Altitude this week. Unfortunately it only has the base 6 speaker system. I've tried doing some research on here but couldn't get conclusive results, so here I go:

Anyone have any advice regarding the Alpine power pack with the stock 6 speaker system? Thinking of purchasing it to start and upgrading the speakers down the road. Also, how much of a pain is it to cut the factory harness and splice the amp in? Any simpler options?

Thanks for the help.

6 speaker system w/ Alpine Power Pack

There is no external amp on the 6 speaker system unfortunately.

Right, but I'm curious as to what people think of using the Power Pack with the stock speakers.

I've heard from people (without jeeps) that they work very well and are easy to hookup. I know there is a place online that sells a harness that matches the stock harness and essentially would give you the ability to splice in the Alpine amp without touching the stock wiring.

^^much appreciated. Just to confirm, if all six stock speakers are 4 ohms, each tweeter could have a channel from the amp then the left/right could be paralleled to use the other two channels (at 2 ohms)?
