I've been researching for the past couple days on building up the sound system on my rig, and I think I'm finally ready to tackle it...Just had another question I couldn't seem to find the answer to.
I have a '14 JKU with the premium Alpine sound.
Here is the thread I've been working off of:
I want to add an amp and sub to my 2014 wrangler rubicon
Here is my question:
I had planned to use an LC6i just like many write-ups have stated, but the amp I'm using (JL XD700/5) can take high-level speaker inputs, therefore eliminating the need for an external LOC.
So, instead of wiring the inputs to the LC6i, can I just wire them straight to my amp in the same order? Would it look any different than what it stated in the write up (front woofers to channel 1 directly on my amp, front tweeters to channel 2 directly on my amp, then sub to channel 3 directly on my amp)?
JL makes speaker wire to RCA adapters I'd be using to make these connections by the way.
From what I have read online, using an LOC would be an unnecessary step with the amp I have. Do you agree?
Also, do I not need to feed the soundbar speaker signals into the input of the amp?
Thanks for all the help on this forum. Now that I have a grasp on what needs to be done, I can save a ton of money on shop labor.
