The solution to that problem is to turn the radio off before you turn off the Jeep. It is never a good idea to leave the radio on. I've heard horror stories of people leaving their radio on and they...

I think he said shop, not dealer. I would never take a vehicle that is not under warranty to the dealership anymore. They just see dollar signs. I could tell you some horror stories as I am sure many...

I'm sure that you understand that the reason it is this way is to prevent people from getting stolen radio's and putting them in their vehicles.

First of all, you need to properly set your gains, and match your speaker impedances. If your speakers are 4 ohms, you don't set your amp to 1 ohm. You don't "crank" the gains to get the sound that...

IMHO, if you put that much power into your speakers, you are going to want a subwoofer that will compliment them. I don't believe that a small compact sub will work well. Think four to five times...

I can tell you that all alarm systems have a brain. If your Jeep alarm system is more than an ignition shut off and power door activator then it too would likely have an brain. But, most stock alarm...

When you have your amp going into protection mode, and then you remove the butt connectors, and the different size wires, and your amp doesn't even get warm, maybe you will understand. Until then,...

It sounds to me that you pretty much agreed with what I said. If you add eight to nine crimps, it adds up. Then, if you push the wire into the butt connector and not al the wire goes through, you...

There is a different type of connector that is being widely used now. You actually twist the wires together, and crimp them that way. Instead of having a piece of metal between the wires adding a lot...

Yes, HPF and LPF, on an amp, will remove frequencies that your speakers really can't handle, and send them to a subwoofer that is made to handle them. If you amp your speakers without a subwoofer,...

All I know is that I brought the CDT's for my '97 Wrangler and they fit just fine. It is slightly cramped, but I was able to get them in. If they are pressed up hard against the magnet, it is okay....
