  1. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I just installed the Morel Hybrid 62s in the front speaker pods. The magnets and basket will fit into the Metra pod with room to spare. The fitment problem lies in the fact that Morel uses a weird screw mounting pattern that does not match any of the screw holes provided by the Metra pod. I...
  2. Very confused why the RR Pioneer Platform is so popular

    The Maximus 3 does appear to mount more sturdily, at the expense of being a bigger PITA when removing the hardtop. In my research, it looks like the best way to increase the carrying capacity of the Rhino Rack Backbone system is to simply use a lighter bar system. The Pioneer Platform is very...
  3. Very confused why the RR Pioneer Platform is so popular

    Thanks for all the responses everyone...very helpful. I am now strongly reconsidering going with another platform/rack system. Are there any other racks/platforms on the market that bolt onto the hardtop, while still allowing decent payload capacity AND easy hardtop removal using the TopLift...
  4. Very confused why the RR Pioneer Platform is so popular

    This is the same conclusion I am coming to...just wanted to post because I see A LOT of pioneer platforms out there and started questioning their practicality, especially given the difficulties of mounting an RTT. As this is a pretty common overland accessory, I'm surprised that Rhino Rack...
  5. Very confused why the RR Pioneer Platform is so popular

    I am in the process of selecting a roof rack for my 2020 JLU. The requirements for the rack are as follows: High static and dynamic load capacity Allows for easy hardtop removal using TopLift Pro hoist (I like to cruise topless frequently in the summer) Versatile enough for extended...

    Thanks for the heads up, I remember reading about this somewhere else in the thread. I wonder how many people are having this issue? My plan is to run 1/0 gauge power wire to a fused 2-way distribution block. I will then run 4 gauge to each amp (VX800/8i and XD600/1v2). Eventually I will...

    I will be putting a call into PAC first thing in the morning re: keeping the Alpine factory sub. Will keep everyone posted as to their direction. Some quick system updates after taking some measurements and thinking things through: I am having trouble finding a 1000+W mono amplifier that will...
  8. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    OK this is exciting. Sting, I cannot begin to tell you how gracious I am for your help and the assistance of this thread. The ability to toggle between subs would be a game-changer. I am a little unclear on how to keep the factory Alpine sub functional alongside the new sub and speakers, as...

    This is infinitely helpful. So with the VX800/8i, I would run one channel to each woofer and tweeter of my front Morel Hybrid component set (4 channels total)? And then literally just leave the passive crossover units in the box to collect dust? And the tweeters will be able to handle 100W...
  10. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Long-time car audio enthusiast, first-time Wrangler owner. This. Thread. Is. Incredible. I own a 2020 JL Rubicon (premium Alpine system w/ 8.4" screen) that I am looking to upgrade. I had much experience upgrading car audio systems in my high school and college days, although those times are...
