More Bass in Stereo ?

Hello,

Well....swapped the dash speakers for a set of Kickers and just did the driver doors (6x9) with a set of Boston Accoustics.

The system really sounds good now. Very clean, dynamic, fidelity, mids, highs and kinda low end.

But.....the system is really missing that "deep bass". I don't want to crank up my bass on my stock radio and blow the dash speakers. I currently run my bass at +2 to +4 maximum. The bass is a little snappy and boppy.

So....question. Other then installing a $2,000. component based system, is there any way to feed a bass speaker off the stock radio?

I still haven't changed the 6.5's in the back doors, do they make speakers that produce mostly bass that I could put in their?

Any suggestions/tips would be appreciated.

Thanks.

On a side note...these Boston Acccoustic SC95's are well rated and are 30-20kHz which means they should put out some low frequency bass.

I did find that the stock speakers I took out of the doors sounded a little deeper, although not as clean. I'm sure these BA's need some juice put to them to get the bass pumping.

Follow the instructions for the install of the Kicker sub install, but use your own components (sub and amp).

But that's my problem. I have the stock radio. 4 channel and 6 speakers. It's not a component system.

So...because the rear doors don't have to worry about hitting the window (they only go down half way) can I install these 6.5" subwoofers in my rear doors. They seem to have wire connectors I could just attach to.
If they fit, would this concept of deep base work???

Just use a line out converter connected to one of the speaker channels. Then get an aftermarket amp off of ebay, wiring kit and sub. Thats it. Very simple and inexpensive. The kicker sub kit can be complicated to install.

Again, read those instructions. Sound is tapped off of front door speaker and power pulled from battery and switched power. No component system needed.

although i know absolutely nothing about those speakers you posted the link to. I am overly familiar with the old adage, "you get what you pay for" so on that alone i'm gonna say those speakers are junk.

Re: More Bass in Stereo ?

Do you have a Limited? The Limiteds come with a Boston Acoustic AMP in the back. You can replace it with the Kicker AMP.

Also on J4J they have the Kicker Sub for sale.

Any subwoofer in those doors would rattle the crap out of that door. You'd probably spend more in dynomat for those doors than just doing the LOC/amp/sub.

I used a PAC LOC, RF Amp, and did a sealed enclosure on a 12" Alpine Type-R. Can't get much more clean bass for the price than that.

I think the LOC was $20, the amp was $180, and the sub/box was $170.

Agreed. Low price = low SQ.

Re: More Bass in Stereo ?

Another thing that can boost your bass is to add a small kinetic battery right before it goes to the amplifier. This battery would be wired in parallel and will give your amp a good boost. When i installed mine i had to turn the gain WAY DOWN!. It also helps with starting your vehicle

I just wired in a switch to the remote wire (which is tapped to my ACC wire) so I have it turned off when starting the Jeep. Then flip the switch and voila, I haz bass!

Yes but when the bass is bumping even if the car is running you wont have enough power thats why the headlightrs dim when the bass hits. Dont forget the switch oin lol!
