radio specs

Does any body know the specs for a replacement radio. I think it is double din, but is that all i need to know? I found a radio/nav/bt system on amazon which is a great price but when i put in a 2015 jeep wrangler unlimited sport, it says it is not compatible. there are other items that have come up that way but when i contact the manufacturer, they said they will fit.

You are finding out why folks like me try to stay with Mopar stock units. The unit is not exactly a double din. So DD head units require a bit of modification to fit. Trim rings and dash frame removal. Same rules apply for older rigs. Head units fit because of kit/frames/brackets that make them fit.

Interestjng since most of the feedback I have seen is that the mopar units are not that great . If you did upgrade - do you have the 430 or 730?

I went from 130s to 430Ns, 3 rigs.
One of them had a Kenwood after market unit it. Hence my experience there.

Did you notice any better sound quality out of the 430 vs the 130? I can't stand the fact that to get any bass at all out of the 130 you have to turn the mid range down to -5. I'm looking for a solution but don't want to add an after market radio since I have the doors off often.

No. The overall sound quality was the same.

I've upgraded all 4 speakers with Infinity 6032's, done the cheap tweeter mod and will be replacing my sub soon. I just want a tad more low end but it sucks that in mine I have to turn the mid-range setting down just to hear the sub. You get more bass that way but you lose a lot of the musical sound without the mid IMO.

I have been looking at aftermarket head units since I know the problem with my sound is in the head unit but I don't want anything flashy that screams that it didn't come in the Jeep. They make this that is plug and play and looks stock but for that cost I could get the one's I'm looking at stolen 3 times and still come out ahead...

Since purchasing my '11 I upgraded the stereo from the 130 to the 730, replaced the front and rear speakers with Boston Acoustics from a '11 Dodge Charger SRT8, modified the tweeter crossover frequency and packed the speakers & tweeter pods with polyfil. The increase of sound quality with the speaker modifications has been quite noticeable.
The 730 was FREE as a vehicle take off, the BA speakers were $23 each, the tweeter modification was $3 and the polyfil was another $3 for a total of $98 plus tax.

The stock speakers in my 14 JKU with the 130u headunit were sorry. Tiny magnets and plastic baskets. I tried to like them but they are just weak gestures of a speaker. Replaced all four speakers with Polks and added an Alpine power pack amp inline and it was a drastic improvement for $300. Also added pillow filler to the roll bar and front boxes. I then added an underseat Blauplunkt powered sub ($140ish with the wiring kit) which is nice however the 130U has some kinda strange curves to the EQ levels vs volume. It's like the mids and sub peak around volume 22 then curve off. It's inconsistent. Not sure what I can do to fix it but I like that if someone looks into my jeep, everything is stock looking / out of sight.

I got the 430n with alpine speakers and I think it sounds awesome. Just had to mess with the eq.

Does replacing the 130 with a 430 require any vehicle modification.

Have a 2015 unlimited sport.

No. They are interchangeable.
