Re: Buy out my lease or not?

The dealership worked with me on the miles, so I gave back the 2011 and financed a 2014 Laredo E with Nav and 18 inch rims.

Re: Speaker wiring help, base 6 speaker system

Yes, i believe that should work. The wiring diagram shows the tweeter using a frequency filter jumper. You should get a full range signal from the 6x9 wires.

Re: 2014 JGC limited 4 channel

Re: Speaker wiring help, base 6 speaker system

The Laredo E uses the head unit for amplification. There is no external amplifier.

Re: 2014 jeep grand cherokee adding a sub

Did you use the average readings (tracks 1 & 2) of 40hz and 1khz off the factory amp? 16 seems very low. I hope it doesn't clip at 16.

You may also want to lower the EQ on the head unit while you...

Re: 2014 jeep grand cherokee adding a sub

First thing to do before connecting anything is check the head unit for maximum unclipped volume with the DD1. Mine was around 26.

Can you list all of your equipment?

What Trim level and wheel base did you choose when ordering the wire harness from ram harness.com? I may also give this a try.

This wire didn't come with the Mopar parts you ordered?

It all depends on what size speaker you are replacing with. Most 6x9's will fit with no issue. If you are switching to 6.5's you need to use a adapter plate, which in return adds height.

Re: Audio Build Part 2

These JL amps are extremely efficient and have decent signal to noise ratio. I have been pretty happy with them over the last 3 years.

The box has a double 3/4 baffle.
