Amplifier install

New to the forum and proud owner of a new 2014 altitude. Love the vehicle but not so sure about the speakers. Having a hard time finding some simple info. If someone could throw out some links on an amplifier install write up with factory head unit and some info on the stock amp (ohms, watts) it would be much appreciated. I have the 6 speaker speaker system and would like to keep the stock touch screen. Been awhile since I have done any car audio. Thanks

Greetings and welcome,

Check these out:

Stock Amp Location - '14 Altitude - 6 speaker system

Speaker wiring help, base 6 speaker system

Also, within this forum, search for member RAGEOFFURY, that member has excellent post for the 6 speaker system.

The resistance for the 6 speaker system is 4 ohms. The wattage I not sure of, however, with any amp that is built into the headunit, the wattage is going to be low. The key for speaker selection, especially if you are not adding any amps, is get speaker that have a high sensitivity rating of 90+ db. This way it be for efficient draw on the internal amp.

The 6 speaker system is the easiest to modify.

Hope this helps.

Best for now.
