I am planning to upgrade my speakers this weekend, and I want to make sure that I am not getting in over my head. I have a 2014 JKU Sport S with stock 130 headunit, bluetooth, connectivity, sirius (no infinity/alpine, etc.).
I want to keep the stock headunit and have no interest in a sub. Thus, after scouring this forum, I decided on and ordered the following:
Polk DXi6501 component speakers (for dash/tweeters)
Polk DXi 651s (for sound bar)
My expertise in car audio installation is severely lacking. I think I helped install a couple of head units when I was in high school, but that's about it. Though I am sure I will regret saying this, I'm not worried about pulling the dash apart or fitting the speakers/brackets. It's the electrical that concerns me. The speakers come with harnesses, so that's a non-issue. The tweeters don't, but I picked up some posi-taps and I can probably figure that out.
My biggest worry is wiring the crossovers that come with the DXi6501 system. I haven't been able to find any write-ups or installation instructions anywhere. If there is a thread out there somewhere, I must really suck at searching.
Anyway, how do I wire/install the crossovers? Do I have to cut the wires coming from the head unit? The idea of cutting wires stresses me out. Does anyone have any pictures of their crossover installation? Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
