Stock amp location!??!?

I cannot find the amp on my 2013 jeep wrangler 4 door! Checked under the seats, rear quarter panel, behind glove box, under steering wheel! I don want to take off the whole front dash... I'm guessing its behind there?? Or otherwise what's a good turn on lead I could use for my amp that I'm adding for my two 12 inch subs?

Below your steering wheel, remove plastic panel & the metal plate.... There it is. Remove the front 8mm bolt and it should pull straight back out.

Yea I finally found it! Thanks so much. When I pulled off the metal plate it is facing the opposite direction. Kinda inconvenient. Would you know by chance what color the turn on lead is?

I believe it is a data turn on, meaning it's a multi-plexed wire that does not carry DC voltage. The easiest place to get a turn on for an amp or other device is at the switched ignition cigarette socket below the HVAC and radio. Should be a blue/purple wire, or something along those lines - be sure to meter if you're not sure.

So everything's hooked up and working, but the subs are quieter than the door speakers.... I was googling the problem and everyone suggested that the speakers are wired wrong or the amp is on the wrong settings... Any ideas?

Two subs or one? If you have two, one may be wired out of phase from the other... unhook one sub and see if it gets louder, if it does, hook it back up but reverse the positive and negative leads. If this doesn't work, how did you get your signal, I would assume you used a Line Output Converter; this could be wired out of phase as well, or it may just need the signal level adjusted if it is adjustable.

I went to a local audio shop and found out the high low converter was bad, I bought it from sonic electric for $5 with shipping lol, but it's all good now, sounds amazing
