KICKER install on non-premium sound WK's?
 
ok.....been helping my neighbor install his Kicker speakers. Tons better than the stockers! BUT...he also bought the kicker sub...can he just buy the two harnesses, taps and fuse and install the sub? We know it has its on amp built in....so does it need the Kicker amp in the rear panel at all? My gut feeling is the rear amp is for the speakers only and the internal amp just runs the sub??? Can we just buy the harnesses, tap and fuse and install according to the directions on justforjeeps? he has an 05 laredo 4.7, non-nav.

yes the sub doesnt go directly to the amp so I dont see why it wouldnt work.

for the sub, you run a power out to the fuse block. a ground to the side of the dash. and 2 speaker wires tap into the front drivers kick panel to get the low signal. that it, the rest just goes to the plug and then into the kicker amp.

now the kicker amp may put MORE bass to the kicker door speaker but I would think he wont notice it.

didnt the harnesses come with the sub? or did he buy it used?...Like Robb said the Kicker sub takes signal from the door speaker feed

the pinouts for the sub connection to the harness are on that mopar connector site if needed scott.
in other words make his own harness.

It wouldnt be too hard to wire it up..There are only four wires involved...Power, Ground, and the speaker connections...
