Static Radio

Hey Everyone,

I want to know if anyone else is having issues with the radio when using auxiliary.

Ever time I play songs through my iPhone and crank the volume half or more, I start to get intense static on the right side. I've tried multiple devices different types of cords, all yield the same result. This only happens when playing through auxiliary. Dealer thought it might be my right speaker, so they replaced it, and it's still happening. I think it might be the actual auxiliary input, maybe it busted inside.

This is a BRAND new JK, so I don't think it should have any electrical issues for now...lol

Anyone else have the same issue?

I noticed the AUX input on my stock radio was very loose. The slightest movement of the cord resulted in static. Replace that awful stock unit with a real one.

Replace the entire Unit? or just the AUX?

I kind like the stock look, some of the aftermarket units look too cheesy.

Any Recco on units?

I hear you. I wanted to keep the stock for looks but it is so restrictive and underpowered you will want to swap it eventually. I have a Clarion CX501. Built in bluetooth + mic, and design fits with the HVAC vents. Check it out.

I eventually want to swap it to the stock full screen version. I don't really wanna pay 1500-2000 right now.

What if I buy an iPhone/iPod Mopar adapter. Will that fix the connection and give better sound quality?
