Anyone Here install an aftermarket Audio Processor?

Im looking at dramatically increasing the sound quality in my jeep since i just cant take the crap they call "speakers" anymore

I have a friend in the car audio industry and he has sold me on a set of focals polyglasses for all of the speakers and an alpine type R sub

He also recommended doing a DSP since the jeeps speaker placement isnt the greatest and ill be running topless and doorless in the summer so i can switch between two programs.

im inbetween the JBL MS8 or the audison Bit 10 but since were talking about ALOT of money im going todo the sound processor first and add the rest of the audio components as my wallet can handle. Anyone run a DSP in their jeeps with a stock setup and get better sound? or are these speakers just so bad nothing can help them

Quality speakers make a stock radio sound better. With that in mind, I have always spent a majority of my audio money on them first.

There is no reason to use components like Audison amps in a Jeep. Its simply a waste. The jeep is just too noisy for you to notice the sound quality improvement. A sound processor will also go largely un-noticed. Id stick with quality components that dont break the bank ie $150 a set for speakers, $125 for sub, and $400 or so for a quality amp like an Alpine PDX5 (new version is called V9). Audison amps are made for vehicles like an S class, where you have excellent sound isolation.

The rule is generally the other way around...an aftermarket radio makes stock speakers sound better. Putting quality speakers to an OEM radio often makes the sound worse because the better speakers are reproducing the crap signal better. The first upgrade should be the headunit, then trickle down from there. If you must keep your OEM headunit (if you have a 430 or a 730) then use a quality LOC like an audiocontrol unit.
