The ability to switch between bluetooth devices and aux devices just blows me away and helps me out tremendously because my wife and I can switch between each others iphone's almost instantly. In my old outlander sport, I had to turn off my connection and she would have to attempt to connect.
Anyways, here's what I wanted to start off by doing.
Add amp + subwoofer to stock navi.
add all new speakers + 2nd amp to stock navi.
Is this possible to do? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Welcome to the club.
If you browse thru the first few pages on this forum, you will find all the options out their. First of all, the question is how much money do want to spend and the quality you are looking for?
The best option of the subwoofer is the JL Audio Stealthbox of the JGC, which will require at least the minimum of 400 watts of power into 2 ohms. Idealy, 500 watts is the best. Then for your second stage a 4 channel amp is needed. Speakers is a matter of personal choice. The best way if you have the funds is to get a 5-channel amp and run everything at once. With JGC, look for amp that are rated Class D, they are better for electrical system.
Finally, I recommend using the Audiocontrol LC7i to integrate into the stock system.
Best for now.
