Is this really Alpine?

Hello All,
So i am new here, and have a question about the stereo in my new WK2 Summit. Is all the hardware Alpine? IF so i would expect a little more umph from it. So with that said, has anybody turned up the gain on the stock amp?

If it is Alpine hardware, i would think the speakers could handle a little more power. Or maybe i am wrong all together.

Re: Is this really Alpine?

Subpar Alpine -- made specifically for Chysler -- @ subpar specs. You can't adjust the OE amp. Best advice would be to start adding sound processors, amps, and speakers/sub. You can try speakers first.

Yeah, It sounds ok, but i miss the umph of the 12" alpine stuff i had prior.
I guess i will start my quest to get the system up to snuff!
