Awesome I love mine as well. I had it for a ton of aux lighting and have my radar detector installed to a switch as well. Great when I'm using it in virginia because I can reach down and switch it off fast.

I'm going to hardware the Escort 9500ix with the directcord kit and put the remote mute button in place of one of the switches in the panel! Saves cash on a switch but is still badass! I figure that since I take the radar detector out of the car most of the time anyway, there's no need for a switch because I always want it on when it's in the car.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Nice. I'm still waiting to get my laser jammers! Then I will be invincible!

On a side note I got hit with a police radar detector in Virginia where they were defecting illegal use of radar detectors. Th band is called specter it is used to sweep the radar bands so the police can detect active detectors. Luckily mine has a radar detector detector jammer lol!

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Just upgraded to the mopar option kicker speakers. Sound quality is clearer but seriously lacking bass in the front speakers. THe bostons used to shake my mirrors but I can barely feel these. I used the boston amp as it is supposed to be more powerful and a better amp overall. Any ideas why this is happening?

The mopar optioned speakers are not designed to hit like tha factory speakers. They are mid range speakers and not full range like the ba's. Dont worry tho, you really wount notice it when the sub goes in.

I dont think the BA's are full range either.

How do I drive them harder? I have the bass turned up all the way in the settings and they still suck.

An external amp and not the stock one. From there you can adjust you gain levels to where you get the cleanest signal when turned up.

This is how you blow speakers. Turning the bass all the way up with not enough power. Be careful.
