Re: JL Audio Stealthbox install

[QUOTE=YjagetaJeep;938942]Getting my ducks in a row for installing a sub in my 2013 GC. Can any of yooze guys tell me if there is a remote turn on connection on the factory unit (730)? It is my current plan to take the speaker leads off the factory sub with a speaker level converter and power for the amp direct from the battery.
i/QUOTE]

Greetings,

As far as I know coming out of the factory amp their is no continuation signal to turn on external amps. You can splice into the signal coming in or you can use a the LOC 12-Volt Remote Output to Turn Amplifiers On as in the Audiocontrol Epiccener plus.

Do not worry about ranting, many of us in this forum have including my self.

Best for now.

Re: JL Audio Stealthbox install

Finally making the move to have the JL Stealthbox installed! The initial components are:


Subwoofer -- JL Stealthbox

http://www.mobilesoundworks.com/product_p/jl-audio-stealthbox-94508.htm


Amplifier -- Alpine PDX -V9

http://www.caraudioco.com/alpine-pdx-v9.html


Line Ouput Converter (LOC) -- Audio Control LC6I

http://www.caraudioco.com/audiocontrol-lc6i.html?___store=default


Alpine Rux Knob


With the LOC, the stock head unit will still be used. The stock speakers will be kept for now as well -- albeit getting a nice bump in juice from the amp. Down the road I might put some nice German speakers in to replace OEM. I will post pics once the Stealthbox is professionally installed.

I'm thinking about doing the same thing. Would you mind if I asked how much your installer is charging for the installation? Let us know how it sounds

Re: JL Audio Stealthbox install

Wow, that looks like a nice setup. I still have the single 12" w/ amp out of my last suv, but after seeing this I'm seriously considering getting rid of it and saving up. Looks like it will fit the 2014's. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Regarding installing a sub on a Jeep that doesn't currently have one, is everything there but the hardware or does all the wiring need to be added as well? For instance pulling the radio, etc.

No problem. John, over at Auto Sound (Plainville, MA) charged $325. I provided the JL Stealthbox, Alpine PDX-V9, LC6I, and Alpine Rux Knob. They used their wiring ($50) and did a very clean install. You can't beat the compact size of the PDX-V9 (5 line).

It sounds great! I am very satisfied. To be honest, I didn't think a single 10" sub would be so powerfull -- the engineering of the Stealthbox is very good.

Where did you put the amp and the LC61?

Yes. The JL Stealthbox for 2011+ Jeep Grand Cherokees will fit in your 2014. Moreover, the JL Stealthbox can be installed in a 2014 JGC that does not currently have a sub installed. AND . . . you do not need to pull your radio (head unit). MNwk2GC, I can tell you this with confidence because this is the exact install situation that I had -- I was the guinea pig!

The smartphone does not capture the bass sound (how can it?), but check out this link to hear a recent recording I took the other night

The amp went under the driver's seat, and the LC6I (LOC) went under the back of the driver's seat, inside that small compartment in the floor. See this link for some pics:

I would repost some pics here, but member Peejym has chastized that doing so is a "fail"

Greetings,

I have to agree also. For a single sub, I am totally satisfied.

Best for now.

Thank you for the info. It is really helpful to me!
I hate to keep questioning you, but your setup is pretty much what I have in mind.
Where did you pick up the signals to the speakers? Did you go to each speaker or did you find one place where you could tap into each speaker line for the signal into the LOC....and from the amp back to the speakers.
It wuld be nice to do all that in one location instead of running wires all over the place.

Re: JL Audio Stealthbox install

If you guys are just planning to install a sub, you can go with an LC2i. It's a little cheaper and will be fine for just a sub. You could even use a very cheap/simple LOC around the $20 range. Just wont have the processing that the LCXi will have.

The LC2i sums 2 signals and you can output to your sub amp. From what I've read in other posts, it'd make sense to sum the front 6x9 signal as well as the subwoofer signal. That'll enable you to get the lowest frequencies from the sub, and up to 80hz from the front door signal. Then set your lowpass filter on your new amp to 80hz.

But again, if you plan to amp your door speakers eventually, something that sums and outputs all frequency ranges, the LC6i or similar will suit you better.

I already upgraded all door speakers to Focals, and will just be adding a stealthbox shortly. Will be fine for my needs.
