Cleveland Area Radio Geeks?

I had some speakers and amps installed in the spring and, as I posted around then, am having some minor issues that I need to address. While I could attempt to figure it all out myself, I'm wondering if there are any local fellow Jeep'ers that have good car audio knowledge that'd be willing to spend some time with me getting things straightened out?

I've got the standard 2012 JK radio.

I replaced the front lower speakers & soundbar speakers with some midrange American Base ones. I have a 2 sub box with either 8" or 10" speakers in it behind my seat (American Base again).

I have an amp under each seat.

The issues I want to resolve are:

1. Install some decent tweeters. The stock ones aren't hooked up & need replaced anyhow.

2. My uConnect sounds is garbage since the upgrade. It's either a connection or tuning issue.

3. One of the dash lower speakers is making a noise when the base is up. It's either fried and need replaced, or has something loose that needs to be secured.

4. In general, the amps need to be tuned all the way around.

I "may" consider replacing the head unit, but I'm pretty sure I will be satisfied with things once it's all "cleaned up" a bit.

Might consider moving the amps & re-running some of the wiring too.

Any takers? My girlfriend, who would be supplying us with beers & pizza while we worked, is hot if that helps!

Taking a Jeep hiatus. Be back someday down the road.
