Hi ealive. I ended up changing everything in the Jeep that pertains to audio. Quite the project for a car audio newb like me. But now I'm a pro at removing my Jeep center console.
So I bought the speakers above. They are decent, cheap and get the job done. They lack low end, but that's what the sub is for
Here's a list of what I installed:
- alpine x303 single din + mount kit
- BT adapter for alpine
- PAC harnesses (see below)
- speakers with mount kits
- amp kit
- sub and amp
Here's where I'd start:
- First: buy a new deck! My factory one was garbage and didn't benefit new speakers at all - I didn't even notice a difference until I added a new deck. You'll also need a mounting kit (amazon 10$ use crutchfield for p/n)
- with the new deck you will need some PAC harnesses (pac c2r-chy4) and optional steering wheel (SW) controller (to keep audio buttons on wheel) NOTE your new deck must have an input for this SW (it's a 3.5mm input) I bought both harnesses off of amazon.ca for 200$ CND shipped
- buy speakers (components for front) use crutchfield to find ones that fit. I bought mine from them and they came with mounting kits and wire harnesses (too easy)
- installing amps, subs, (?) I had an extra sub in storage that I used. Just had to buy an amp wiring kit (45$ at bestbuy for a small 600w max package)
- Google some install guides (found plenty with nice pictures for the whole process) Hint 2011's are identical and have tons of guides.
- get everything together first and install the whole package in one shot. It'll take you a good day of work
- Get a solder iron, shrink tubing or electrical tape and do all the work in doors
- Polyfil speaker boxes (walmart or craft store 7$)
- install speakers in this order (guides will say this too) Rear sound bar, passenger then driver. The front speakers were a PITA.
