Re: Spring A/V upgrade project

Thanks for that Rage, good to know in case I ever go the aftermarket route. I'm tempted to do that so I can get bluetooth and of course have more doodads in the radio than the stock 430N.

I like the JL stealthbox but my wallet is not agreeing right now LOL. I hope to find a matching small amp and low profile sub enough to fit under the driver seat.

Re: Spring A/V upgrade project

just a couple of questions for you as i am about to install an aftermarket nav myself. did your jeep come with a nav or just the stock radio? wondering if they all come with a nav antenna as i just have the stock radio with sirius. i would like to not have to use the magnet antennas if at all possible. also for the sat radio. using the adapter are you able to receive all of the stations? my stock radio only says sirius on it not siriusXM. if i use the built in antenna am i only going to receive sirius stations?
thanks for any help you can provide. your setup looks awesome. hope mine will come out nearly as clean.
thanks again.

also did you have to run something from the sat radio receiver or did you do it all from the wiring in the dash? if you have to go from the unit itself where is it located?
thanks for any help you can give.

Re: Spring A/V upgrade project

If you have Sirius on your stock headunit, then you already have the SAT/GPS antenna. All you need to do is put together the adapter I did. I will be taking additional pictures this weekend of all of this. So standby!

I receive all SiriusXM channels.

The SiriusXM tuner is a separate module that plugs into the aftermarket headunit. My Alpine headunit is compatible with the SiriusXM SXV200 tuner. This is a credit card size tuner that simply plugs into the headunit.

I see you used the b harness on PAC unit. Do you think its a safe bet my 2012 would also use the b harness? I really didn't want to take the dash apart until I had most of it wired up and ready to go.
I am using the same Sirius adapter it seems but I am going to a Pioneer head unit. do you think that will affect anything as far as your adapters go? I am looking at all the connections and trying to see how they all work together. looking forward to your pictures this weekend.

Thanks.

Re: Spring A/V upgrade project

The radios are interchangeable between the 2011-13 GCs, so yes same harness all around.

The adapter I put together can easily be modified to that it plugs into an Pioneer GPS jack instead of an Alpine GPS jack. Which Pioneer headunit did you go with?

Re: Spring A/V upgrade project

I went with the Avic Z150BH that just came out. I actually just bought all the same adapters you did. I think they are the same. like I said the sat radio receiver is the same and the nav plug I think seems to work as well with what you had set up. let me know if you need any more info to know if my set up will be the same. thanks for all the help.

Re: Spring A/V upgrade project

The GPS connector on the Pioneer isn't the same as the Alpine. Pioneer uses a proprietary green connector, while Alpine uses a standard grey GPS connector.

Oh no. What do I need to do. Is there another adapter, do I need to modify something? Thanks again for your help.

Re: Spring A/V upgrade project

I did some research using google regarding Pioneer's green connector. Doesn't look promising. You may be able to modify the adapter you bought to make it work. Once you have all the hardware, check it out.

I found a green pioneer adapter I can crimp on the wire. So I'll use all the stuff just cut the end off the standard plug and crimp this one on. Should be good to go.

Re: Spring A/V upgrade project

Alpine SPR-60C installed in the front doors!

The red tape you see is anti-vibration tape. I used some between the speaker and the adapter as well as between the adapter and the door.

The tweeters are installed using the OEM tweeter grills. I used construction adhesive to glue them in place. Forgot to snap pictures of the tweeter installation. Sorry.

I have the crossovers set at -4dB as I found 0 and -2 to be a little too bright for my liking.
