What would probably be best is to use the OEM amp to power an efficient aftermarket subwoofer.I’m convinced it’s the OEM crap “tuned by mcintosh” either way I’m content with the speakers, the sub needs an upgrade tho.
im thinking under the cargo floor might be easiest, remove plastic tray and build a box
I took the sub signal, ran it through a line out converter, then I ran a dedicated 650watt RMS amp in my truck. It had the OEM alpine stereo.What would probably be best is to use the OEM amp to power an efficient aftermarket subwoofer.
Ive done this in another car and the results were great!
What specific parts had "Alpine" on them? I could see some things like plastic enclosures being stamped as "Alpine" (due to cost-sharing), but the actual electronics (crossovers or actual speaker drivers) should definitely not say "Alpine".The fronts are too bass heavy thats for sure… and the doors rattles overpower the music.
I deadened the front doors and that took care of 95% of the rattles and as an added bonus they sound nicer when closing them.
I do have the mcintosh and found it funny that the speakers have Alpine labels on them lol…
OP let us know how your system sounds with the subwoofer off…
Quick look, makes me think of the Bronco Everglades edition with factory snorkel and winch.Found this… love the grille.

I had all those rattles too. Horrible. my dealer took the door panel off and tried to figure it out, but couldn’t. The worst of my rattles were coming from the area right around the memory seat and massage button switches above the door handle. I’m not sure anything other than a redesigned set of switches for those things would’ve fixed it. I’ve heard elsewhere that Jeep was replacing entire door panels with redesigned ones due to the problems. Mine was a September or October 21 build. Newer ones should have the redesigned panels and fewer rattles. That said, I have done quite a few stereo installs in the past and I am familiar with the things you’ve done to improve the situation.Hey @Sarge
The front speakers have part number labels with the ALPINE logo on them, I know super akward…
As for rattles the door itself has only a small strip of sound deadening at the top, and my doors rattled at any hint of bass (bass setting at -4) most of the rattles came from the door card itsell, speaker grill and some areas where the door cards meet the door structure.
