stereo question, subs question, please help!
 
so i have a 2005 grand cherokee and a 600 watt powerbass amp with a diamond audio 10..I still have the stock head unit and have always had it. I had to get a bass knob because when i turn the volume up the sub stays at a constant level no matter what the volume is. The audio stores have all told me the only way to fix this is by getting an after market head unit..are they correct???..if so please help me with yalls personal thoughts on which head unit would be the best for my 05 grand

The sub stays constant? Im really curious how the amp is wired to the headunit. I had mine before I got an aftermarket and the sub went up and down with the headunit volum no problem.

yea something is wired wrong. there are many people that retain there stock units and add a sub with no problems. but a nice shiny new deck never hurts. LOL

You don't need an aftermarket headunit.

Something is connected to your headunit incorrectly. How did you connect it? Also do you have a factory amp in the jeep as well.


I had this issue before, and I was able to fix it but connecting to the factory amp.

^ What wc said. Im wondering if its spliced off the back of the head unit since the BA system only increases and decreases volume directly form the amp and the headunit essentially does nothing but act like a source unit with a data cable to tell the amp what to do.

Yea that doesnt sound right to me either. How are you getting your signal to your amp? I am guessing or hoping RCAs....are you splicing into your rear speaker wires for that purpose? The only thing I can think of is they have a splice wrong somewhere that feeds the signal to your amp. May only be splicing into one of the speaker wires instead of both...

I had the same problem, you spliced into the wrong speaker wires. I'm check mine out now.

You want to go to the amplified wires the other wires are getting a lower steady wattage that goes to the amp, the amplified wires are what go to your speakers.

I'm getting subs installed on tesday and I didn't need a aftermarket deck bc I got a high to low converter which controls the bass level..
