It looks like it has high level inputs, which is good. But, that's a really low power amp. What are you trying to drive with it?

I personally wouldn't even waste my time getting that amp setup. It won't even begin to tickle a Solo Baric. If it works at all, it's going to just do some random vibrating.

Re: Factory-style WK sub install

I had a similar system in a 2004 GMC Envoy as I was unhappy how MP3 chopped off the high and low end of music and this was 10 years back. Sadly my RER system only plays MP3 or Windows stuff rather than my entire library of iTunes stuff I unfortunately converted over buying into the full digital age in 2004. What a mistake that was.

A local stereo shop built a small box similar to the one you have pictured above but actually mounted the 300W amp powering just the subwoofer in that box directly to the back of the box. It looked nowhere as good as yours. It wasn't easy to remove at all but it did sound nice. One of the few places you can listen to music at concert levels is solo in your moving vehicle or with very tolerant rear passengers. I have very sensitive hearing so don't blast it all the time. The GNC has Bose stereo system. I enjoyed the Harmon Kardon system in my Buick Regal that replaced the Envoy. Great center channel sound and played MP4 great.

I bought my GC hoping to drive it until the wheels fell off but having so many recalls and such has stopped me from upgrading the sound system above the level that came with the limited edition. I do miss great audio, but need to assess whether I will keep the Jeep linger than needed. I live in a snow belt and live the product but so many recalls and small bugs is annoying to the Nth degree. I put less than 12K miles in the vehicle these days where I used to be a road warrior and put between 60-70K miles per year in cars. Luckily I've retired early and can put in some great headphones when wanting full volume and great depth. Nothing really matches the sound in a symphony hall or similar arena as in a nicely equipped vehicle. We live too close to neighbors so investing in massive home audio with appropriate insulation isn't cost effective either. I will pull the Ucinnect system if I keep the car even another year or two. It's unacceptable to have a hard drive equipped touch screen system with good speakers and Amps that can't use digital media from Macs other than through a hard line from a tablet or phone.

A sore spot about Apple and Jeep, for me.
