New Audio Install

Hey guys I'm new to this forum and Jeeps in general. I recently bought my first Jeep, that being a 2015 Grand Cherokee Altitude. As usual when I buy a new vehicle I start out content with the audio system (9 speaker Nav) then gradually I can't stand how it sounds. I was an installer and shop manager for years and always have quite a bit of audio gear stowed away, so I decided to tear into this thing. After doing a bunch of research on here and so general audio forums I started out by dusting of a Rockford 360.3 to sum then clean up all my audio signals. I wanted to try to keep as much of the equipment out of sight as much as I could since I travel a lot. I started to look for amps that I could fit in the spare tire well and still retain the tire. This brought me to the Kenwood Excelon XR amps. Theses things are super slim and have worked out just fine for now (I'm sure I'll change things up. Who ever really gets "done" with their stereos?) I have the 4 channel going to a set of Focal Flax 6.5" components in the front doors and a mono channel going to a HAT L3SE for the center. Rears were left to the factory amp. An XR mono block is running to a JL Audio 10w6v3 in a 1.2 ft^3 ported box @ 36 hz. Things really do sound great but anyone who has ever really been into audio knows this is always an evolving thing and I already have started to think of some upgrades to do, mostly going fully active up front. Sorry for the long right up but if anyone wants any specific info just let me know. Thanks.

Re: New Audio Install

Hello

I installed a 360.3. After setting the device, a EQ have to be done
Meanwhile I use the radio at 5 top, all amps are in 0% gain.
I saw that when I received a phone call volume by default is 15, so thats very high. Its scary
A thing that scares me also is the reverse sound from the park sense.
There is a way maybe turn down the volume just a little in both cases?

Did you expirienced this?

You should be able to turn done the output signal from the 360.3 to your amps so that you have more volume adjustment. When I set up my 360 initially it showed to clip at 29 on the volume, so that is where I have my max volume set to.
