It sounds so poor that I really wonder how you would hear it with the top down. I thought it might be defective but I was told by the dealer that that was the normal output. So I am down to installing an after market solution. Does any one have a suggestion? I will be going off road a lot and the top will be of the majority of the summer. I will need something that can take environmental abuse.
#1. Yup! Been there... done that! It's the "WIVE'S SECRET SCHOOL"
they attend, sometime before they marry us..... it's so SECRET
, my GPS can't even find it..... but it's out there! Ask any Married Guy!
#2. Yes, the Stock Speakers are sCRAP
! I've seen them up close and personal. I kept the RES Stock Radio, with Single CD Player (Look at the bottom right of your Radio on the front. It should have "RXX", for whatever model Radio it is...)
. If you look at my signature, you'll see the Audio Upgrades I've made within the last two months. With this setup, I don't even need a Sub-Woofer. Matter of fact, my Bass pumps out so much, I actually have to set it dead center range, just so I don't loosen any bolts on my Jeep!
I'm EXTREMELY HAPPY
with my sound now, and I get all of the Bass/Treble/Mid I need. I mostly run my iPod through the Aux Jack in the front of the Radio. I added one of these...
Monster Cable iPod Player (Link)
... it is AWESOME!
I can plug it into my 12v Access on the left, pop the small plug into the Aux Jack on the front of the Radio, and the other end into my iPod. I can control the PLAY
, and NEXT
on the flip-up knob, rather than having to fool with the iPod directly. It's a breeze when driving, and you don't need to take your eyes off of the road.
Best of Luck!
