Looking for JBL MS-8 info
I have a GC Trailhawk with the alpine system. I'm curious as to how much the MS-8 will improve it and if I'll just be able to install an amp and 2 JL 10's I have from my previous truck. They are just sitting in the garage collecting dust and would like to change that.

Re: Looking for JBL MS-8 info

I have the MS-8 as part of my new system after I removed the entire Factory Alpine system and speakers. In addition to the MS-8, i have an RF 3.sixty.3 running as well to handle additional processing power. I also installed a new headunit to grid rid of the 430 UConnect.

One of the reasons I choose the MS-8 was for the surround sound Logic 7 matrix decoding. IMO, the Logic 7 is much better than the Alpine's Eurphony, including if it is used in a configuration other than surround sound. In the SRT and Summit GC, now you get the Logic 7 as part of the HK system. Many of the fine European HK system have also the the Logic 7 built-in.

The bottom line depends on the configuration you choose. For example, since you have to 2 JL 10's sitting around, you might want to have them hooked in a stereo configuration. This will leave you with 6 out of the 8 channels free. You might opt for a 3 way front with no center or rear. Then, I would suggested something other than the MS-8 because you need the ability to get into more detail tuning methods. This is one of the reasons why I have the RF.

Best for now and happy holidays. :)
