  1. Show me your JL gun holster setup

    Sure, had to slightly file the magnets center hole so the bolt would go through. Took just a couple minutes. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0815XD8TQ?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
  2. Show me your JL gun holster setup

    Magnet on my Gladiator, but same thing.
  3. Installation of the Kicker HS8 Hideaway Subwoofer

    I used an old wire coat hanger and straightened it. Then used black electrical tape to secured the hanger and red wire in a straight line to form a makeshift snaking tool. I got my wife to snake the hanger end first from the passenger side under the dash floor board and I got under the passenger...
  4. Where do you store your pistol / gun?

    I did that with the sub 2000.
  5. Where do you store your pistol / gun?

    Just removed the plastic cap cover and OEM screw. Then used the magnets (link below) and M6 metric screw from Home Depot. Total cost less than $20. I doubled the magnets back to back for better strength, but had to remove one of the back covers to make it fit more flush with the console...
  6. Where do you store your pistol / gun?

    Upgraded my old magnet setup to a new magnet that looks more OEM and blend in better when not being used.
  7. Accidental audio improvement with dash speakers and Alpine system

    Glad the dash speakers worked out well for you. For the soundbar I think the JL C2’s has more base and the Infinity has more highs. It’s really a preference thing, but I prefer the base to the rear or behind me. You usually want base from the rear and too much highs can be overwhelming and...
  8. Speaker replacement upgrade

    No, I didn’t seem to need anything additional.
  9. Speaker replacement upgrade

    I I’m no expert on the signal either, just followed the advice of others on the forum and the wiring diagram colors but it worked. I did have my polarity reversed at first. Meaning at center no base. At left or right full, base on each side only. Then swapped the left/right wires and the base...
  10. Speaker replacement upgrade

    No issues with overpowering highs up front, it’s a good balance and you can hear the high/mids much better after the swap IMO. The wrangler would be different physically, but the wiring would be the same. Under the seat mount or in the rear cargo area would work. I know the JK can be outfitted...
  11. Speaker replacement upgrade

    No base blockers, tried them on the 3.5” and got a popping noise when powering on so removed them. No popping noise without the blockers and all is well. I don’t know on the 4” tweeter replacing the 3.5” dash, but wouldn’t think it would fit. I didn’t have to use the factory sub wiring for...
  12. Speaker replacement upgrade

    No volume decrease at all, sound is much better and cleaner. You can really hear the highs/mids better and not muddy like the OEM. You will be happy and worth the dash pull to put the metra’s in there. If I were doing it again I would have put components in the dash instead of coax, but you...
  13. Speaker replacement upgrade

    More of just better sound quality than major volume gain IMO. Meaning hearing sounds you couldn’t hear with the OEM Alpines. I added a kicker HS8 in the rear driver side backrest compartment behind the seat after doing the dash and felt that really topped off the needed balance front/rear...
  14. Accidental audio improvement with dash speakers and Alpine system

    There is a small channel opening where OEM wire comes in. I tucked the adapter white plug up inside that opening getting out of the way of the circular cone part of the SB. Held the adapter there with my fingers until the speaker holds it in place, then gave the C2-350 a little clockwise twist...
  15. Accidental audio improvement with dash speakers and Alpine system

    You ordered the exact setup I have in mine. You could multi meter it, but sound should tell you if polarity is reversed. Mine were plug and play and everything was fine. I originally added bass blocker, but got a popping noise when powering on the head unit. I removed the base blockers and no...
  16. Accidental audio improvement with dash speakers and Alpine system

    1) Cant speak for the 3032, but very happy with the 3022’s (11 months and still sound great) 2) Correct, slight bend to fit the screw angle. Can’t tell after putting back on the cover plate. 3) No drilling, just tight. 4) Correct 2 pair per package and would need 2 packs (total of 4 adapters)...
  17. Installation of the Kicker HS8 Hideaway Subwoofer

    Same here, been running mine for 6 weeks and no problems. I kept the Alpine premium sub and added the HS8 as well. Sounds great and big improvement without adding an amp yet.
  18. Accidental audio improvement with dash speakers and Alpine system

    Here is what I did to my Gladiator (link below on post#62) adding a Kicker HS8 Hideaway powered sub to complement the less powerful Alpine Premium sub. It was a pretty good improvement without adding an amp yet. I know I will have to do it at some point through and get the most out of the...
  19. Installation of the Kicker HS8 Hideaway Subwoofer

    Great write up, thx for doing this. I’ll be adding the same sub to my Gladiator.
  20. Aux switches. What's on yours?

    Did you use the pink/orange wire like in the chart below to connect your sub power wire to the ignition wire? Any issues in power drain in doing it this way?
