Installing JBL MS-8 in 2014 JGC Overland

I decided to upgrade the audio in my 2014 Overland. I want to start by adding the JBL MS-8 I have left over from my old Raptor. I think I have the wiring for the speakers correct but i'm not sure where to pull the remote turn on wire for the MS-8 from the factory amp. I want the MS-8 to turn on all the other amps first to avoid the popping noise you can get. I want the MS-8 hidden and out of the way of anything. Does anyone know of a good place to mount the MS-8 and a JL XD700/5 amp? Has anyone installed a summing device or DSP yet with the alpine system? I am wondering if there are any issues with the navigation voice and phone calls. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm curious about this too.

Looking at getting an MS-8. Want to see how others have installed/mounted it and if Phone audio over Bluetooth is affected.

Re: Installing JBL MS-8 in 2014 JGC Overland

Greetings,

In my 2011 JGC, I have install the MS-8 in order to have the Logic 7 running. If you look at my pictures under my profile you will see that I mounted my equipment to the back of the rear seat (the ms-8 is on the right). I am using a direct path from my aftermarket radio to the MS-8. Make sure when you sum the channels it is It is important that you get the sub-woofer, mid-bass / midrange and tweeters going into the MS-8 LOC. Keeping the unit in the rear makes it easy to tap into the factory amp on the left side.

The MS-8 does not have a direct connection for a bluetooth. However, via the RCA aux input, you can get a bluetooth dongle receiver for receiving the audio streaming.

For those who never used the MS-8 or had experience in some sort of sound engineering, it does take sometime to get used to it and tune your system. If you have set up an home theater system, then you find the learning curve
quicker. On tip, if have problems figuring out the crossover setting for an active system, call your speaker tech support, they will tell you.

Best for now and happy holidays
