  1. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Haven't had much luck using the auto turn-on feature, but do recommend using the cigarette lighter/12V outlet. Or, you can use the same wire as your Amp's remote-on if it's close/available. When you use auto-on via signal, there's often a delay in the LOC actually turning on.
  2. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Need a bit more detail, but we'll try to assist. How are you feeding the pre-amp signal into your KTP-44u? Which system did you start with? (Alpine or the base system) What settings did you choose on the KTP-44u? (I've helped someone else with that amp, and they'd not set the crossover...
  3. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    You're so very welcome! This is fun, rewarding stuff, and often the build is as enjoyable as the outcome. For amp choice, you don't need a VXi for the Sub. I really can say there's benefits of adding it or not, since you're controlling the VXi through a tablet or laptop. Both amps would use...
  4. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Now you're talking. Whether you get the ProWedge or have a box custom made, you can indeed remove it anytime you need, especially if you use banana plugs for your connectors. If you insert a toggle switch in-line with with the ground wire running to your stock sub, you could toggle it on/off...
  5. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Glad you're finding the resources here helpful @Aunt Minnie! You've got some great gear picked out there, and the best news is you CAN use the pass-through from the VXi to feed your XD amp and have all of the same control. You're on the right track with the 800/8, that's what I'm running, and...
  6. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Almost sounds like an issue with the solder points. Since Heat/Cold affect the auto sensing issue, you may want to re-solder the contacts where your resistors are connecting to the wires. If that doesn't take care of it, the expansion/contraction effect could (unlikely) be happening inside of...
  7. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Definitely sounds like a combination of a grounding issue and a weak auxiliary battery. Troubleshooting engine noise can be a bit tedious, though make sure your battery's ground cable is very snug, and ensure the ground wires all along the passenger side of the engine compartment are tight...
  8. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Good plan. The staged approach is a good one, and it allows you to pace yourself. My only comment is that technology has really come a long way with all of this gear. Several amp manufacturers now offer built in DSP's, or you can also add a DSP before your existing (older) amp. Your decision...

    Thanks, from a Louisiana native (Lafayette)! I'll add that to Post #1.

  13. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Looks good. You won't need the PAC amh-ch03 if you're using the PAC AmpPro. If you need help with the parts, ping the gentleman I refer to at the end of post #1. Good luck!
  14. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    That's the definitely the recommended route. You could simply add speakers, skip the cross-overs and possibly need to add capacitors, though the speakers would need to be of the very high efficiency variety (i.e. very low wattage needs). The stock system can barely handle the cheap stock 4"...
  15. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    You can easily add the aftermarket amp and sub. The challenge is that most aftermarket speakers require much more power than what the stock system supplies. If you have the Alpine system, running components up-front is a challenge because each speaker is receiving a crossed-over...
  16. Wheels and Tires - 17" vs 18" wheels

    The only limitation that comes to mind is the ability to upgrade to certain tires/tire sizes in the future. I immediately upgraded to 18" wheels and 37's, then eventually decided to go the 40" route. Going with 18's was costly, as Nitto doesn't make a 40" tire that fits an 18" wheel. I had to...
  17. 2018 JLU Dash Cluster Failure

    Opinion: It's your Jeep, go get it. It's really that simple. They will tell you they don't want to have to disassemble/reassemble, but they have no grounds to hold the Jeep unless they believe it would be a hazard to you/others. If that's the case, and it's dangerous to drive the Jeep with...
  18. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    That's pretty odd! Can't immediately think of anything that would cause that, but it may be worth checking the pins in the large plug that fits into the back of the stereo. Take a look at post #1, it has a schematic of that plug. I suppose its possible one of the pins is bent and touching...
  19. Dealer Speedometer Recalibration

    There's a few TazerJL forum threads that go into tons of detail on the topic, though the simple answer is that if the dealer programs the calibration, they add a sales code and it "sticks" regardless of whether or not they reset anything. With the TazerJL, which is the Swiss Army Knife of mods...
