Re: My build

LOVE THE BUILD MAN! All good stuff and the install looks clean! Glad to see you know what youre doing too and not doing some hack job lol! I'm sure youre going to have great results! Let us know when you get powered up and how it sounds, I want some reviews of those 3 ways as Im looking at a new set of components for my front doors.

I hate the 6x9 size since there are hardly and good 6x9 component worth my time/$ so Im going to go 6.5" components all day. Im between some Focal 6.5" right now and some nice Alpine Type X pros that I saw. I know Focal is hard to beat besides like Rainbow from overseas and a few other brands so that may be route I end up.

Also love the sound deadening you did, got myself some dynamat real cheap off Amazon, hoping it lives up to its rep fingers x'ed!

Re: My build

Thanks!

You bet your ass Ill be doing a review on the 3-way's. FYI, theyre on sonicelectronix.com right now for $150 a set! They used to be $700 retail so you might want to reconsider the Focal's

But if you want to get really crazy I would sugest DLS and Morel.

Re: My build

Well hurry and get some more pics up!!!! lol i cant wait to see how this ends. now you had the factory BA system correct? did you have to rewire the whole jeep and just discard the factory amp, since all the factory speaker wires go through the factory amp.

Re: My build

Im still working on it . Patience is a virtue.

Yes, I have to rewire the entire Jeep. Besides, using the factory wires would choke down the components...


so I got this wire instead!

14 gauge.

Re: My build

You ran that for all your door and dash speakers must have been a #@$ to run all that.

Re: My build

Yea, I ran all new wires to my front doors and dash as well. The doors were a pain in the *$&% till I figure out I didn't need to pop out the white plastic moldings in the door, then trying to get the one side back in took forever as well.

Remmy - FYI when you take out the passenger side seat, make sure to disconnect the battery first otherwise when you put it back in you could end up with the stupid seat belt light coming on when no one is in the passenger seat, then you have to take back to the dealership so the can recalibrate the seat.

Re: My build

Recalibrate the seats? Cars have become way to advanced when the seats have to be calibrated. LOL. Can you imagine saying that back in the 60's

Thanks for the heads up. I dont plan on taking seats out though.

But those plastic clips!!! I was talking about that earlier. HOLY CRAP those things were a pain in the ass. I took my dremel and cut them off. The rubber boot does just as good as a job with out them. Who the hell engineered that!? They essentially made a plastic clip for plastic clips. For those of you who havent dealt with this, you cant run new wires without doing this.

Re: My build

I just pushed the wires through one of the open slots in them and was done. DO NOT TRY TO REMOVE THEM!!!! Total PIA to put them back in!

I had to remove the seats to get the wires to the back. There's like a black plastic tunnel which you can nicely run the wires through, but you need to room to open it up, hence taking the seat out. I felt if I tried to run the wires over it, it would look horrible or just not work. Definely needed to do it for the 0 gauge power wire.

And yea draft, NEVER would think that the seat would have to be calibrated, but I guess these are the days we live in. FYI- if you forget to disconnect the batter first and the light does come on randomly, just try moving the seat all the back and forward a few times and it should go away.
