Aren't all your posts just useless muttering LOL, j/k. You got the amp part right, especially if it's going to be stored in that little storage area.

Re: Mopar Kicker Upgrade

Here's my 2 cents off the top of my head, I wouldnt bother with any of that kicker upgrade stuff. I Would delete the rears and dash speakers altogether, and buy a good set of component speakers for the front doors and mount the mid and tweeter side by side in the 6x9 opening as shown below.




Then buy a single 10" or 12" sub and a JL 450/4 amp (or similar power rating) to power everything. That amp will let you run 75 watts to the front speakers and bridged for 300 watts for the sub. That set-up will be around $600.

I only say this because its similar to what I have in now. I realized dash and rears are not needed for awesome stereo imaging, and I have only a single JL 10W6v2 sub and it is unreal in the open area WK. I bet a single JL 10W0 or 12W0 would sound great, I think the WK stealth box comes with a 10W1 or 10W3. And purely based on my readings of the kicker upgrade from online I hear it isnt the best sounding for the money. Again, just my 2 cents.

If you want to keep storage go with a single sub and a digital amp. The digi amp is to reduce heat and with that in mind, you can hide it in tighter compartments without the thought of overheating.

x2, ive had both and now i have the BA system with a single Kicker 12" and kicker 750w amp and i am very pleased. Its no competition based system but its just perfect for me. I used to have a Kicker 500W amp with dual kicker 10s and i was not happy with it at all.

Re: Mopar Kicker Upgrade

Can buy better gear for the same price or even cheaper than the
"kicker upgrade".

Re: Mopar Kicker Upgrade

Door speakers, tweets and amp on the way. Will order the sub box when I bank some more money for this project.

The WK turned 10K miles today.
