i've been reading up on infinity's website and it seems that all their kappa series are rated at 2ohms impedance which should fit without issue..

you said you had the connectors for the jeep.. did infinity supply that or did you get the metra kit?

i think i'm going with this route:
Dash - 32.9 kappa
front doors - 692.9 kappa
rear doors - 62.9 kappa
metra speaker connectors x 6
also some spacers just in case i need them for extra room

i want to keep the stock amp so the above will be slightly underpowered but hopefully not by much, i wanted a component system but the power requirment would be far beyond what the amp can provide so that would be useless for me.

Re: Butch's 2010 install

Infintiy supplied the speaker mounting plate that allows for the three hole settup for the 6.5's. the 6x9's and 3.5's fit just fine as is. Now dont forget to pick up some bass blockers for the 3.5's or they will probably blow sooner or later (very important). I dont know why jeep didn't put a crossover on them, but oh well they are like 5 bucks. Now as for the 2 ohm infinity's make sure that the factory amp is a 6 channel amp. the reason for this it because if it is a 4 channel the dash speakers and front door speakers will be on the same channel and two 2ohm speakers will make a 1ohm load , and that will likely kill your factory amp. Other than that you should have everything you need to have one great sounding settup.

Re: Butch's 2010 install

Looks good! I have almost the same speaker setup. What model are the kappa 3.5's? I've been eying a set after one of my JL 3.5's blew.

thanks for the tip on the bass blocker.. never thought of that, but at 2 ohms dont i'd be blocking off 0-5.6khz is that right? wouldnt that be too much?

and yes the factory BA amp is 6 channel..

thanks for the help Butch!

Thats awesome. its sure to sound great. and as for the blocker's that is a bit to high. i used a 0-800hz and it works great! it let's just the mids through. after i hooked it up i put in a bass cd and turned it up to make sure it would be ok, and it barely moved. anything higher only lets in just very high mids and tweeters. Here are the exact ones i used
http://cgi.ebay.com/PERIPHERAL-PBASS...item5d2ccc140d let me know when you start installing them, cant wait to see some pics.

Re: Butch's 2010 install

Well the audio gods were smiling on me last week . I picked up some discontinued infinity kappa 32.5cf's to match all my other speakers in my install, but its killing me not to be able to finish my sub install till i get home some time this summer!!!

Re: Butch's 2010 install

Is there any reason you didn't go with the MOPAR kicker upgrade?

Re: Butch's 2010 install

To be honest the kicker upgrade was never even a thought to me. Not to upset any of the people here with the kicker upgrade, it really isn't that good for the price. the speakers they use aren't even the better ones they make. Now don't get me wrong, its not a bad system, but to me, for the same price you can put together a far superior system. I have been building systems since the late 80's so its second nature to me, but the kicker upgrade is a good system for people new to car audio or just want a simple upgrade without a lot of hassle from stock. Anyway to answer your question i just love building systems from scratch.

Agreed, I don't want to offend anyone on this site, but for the same money or a little more you can get some really nice after market speaker. Plus, you should buy speakers on how they sound, not who manufacturers them. Kicker does make great stereo stuff though, hence their amps and subs in my Jeep.
