So I have finally decided to spice up the sound system in my 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X given the amount of time I spend traveling (I Go to school in KY and work in Virginia, which makes about 10 hours a week I’m going to and from.
I had some questions for people who are wiser than I am.
First, I have been unable to find the maximum mounting depth for both the dash and roll bar speakers. I really want to put a specific set of infinity speakers in, but according to Crutchfields fit guide they won’t fit (But according to Sonic electronix they will). I am planning on buying everything from sonic since they seem to be far more economical than other places.
What I need is for someone who knows about this kind of thing to look at my wishlist (Link to follow) and let me know if I have everything I need, and whether or not it will fit. If the speakers are a little to big, would it be possible to use the “universal extender” (also in the wish list) to give me enough room for the install.
Also, this is the first time I will be doing any kind of major install myself. I had a clarion VRX785BT head unit installed professionally about five months ago, but have removed it and re-installed it myself when I added XM radio. From What I Understand, this is what I need to do to install everything.
1. Mount the AMP. I think I will be puting this in the rear cargo area since I think it would be too big and cause too much heat under the seat.
2. Run the battery terminal and ground wire.
3. Run the StreetWires ZN5450 interconnect cables from the head unit to the amp along with the signal cable.
4. Mount the Sub in the box
5. Install all four speakers using the speaker harness adaptors. From what I gather I also need to run wire from the speakers to amp in addition to using the wiring harness connectors.
I hope I am making since. Please let me know if I am on the right track. Here is the link for the components I want to install.
