New head unit and factory amp
So I was thinking about getting a new head unit and I was wondering how the infinity stock amp works with new head unit ? I know there is a harness that let's you still use the amp but does that mean the power from the head unit doesn't work or does it just add to the power running to the speaker and give you a combined power going to the speakers. I have a 10' jk unlimited with the infinity package. Any thoughts?

factory amp is the power ...the radio will add no power.. only thing it may do is make it a little cleaner.

personaly before you did anything i would look @ what your looking to get out of the jeep and make a system to go w/ it. i hate all factory amplified systems. makes it harder to swap things. every time i get a new vehicle i replace everything.

factory systems only do so much.. doesnt matter if they are "higher" end ones. thats just another way to get more money out of the buyer, i know it sucks, can always get alot better system aftermarket than the "high end factory one" and in alot of cases for same money or less..

It was just a brain fart I had, I replaced the speakers already and the headunit is next so I will abandon the stock amp and go with the head unit power for now.
