  1. Anyone install 6.5” speakers in JL soundbar? If so how did you do this? Any help would be appreciate

    You can cut the ends off of the factory wires and add female terminals to the factory wiring and connect to your new speakers. Or, yes, they make plug and play adapters. I've always had good luck buying from Crutchfield. Metra will make the adapter you need.

    Looking good. How do you like the KO2s?
  3. Help confirming wheel/tire fit on 2020 JLU Sahara

    Idk, Discount Tire did the installation. I requested black lug nuts so they were replaced. They did NOT use spline lug nuts so I had to buy a thin walled socket.

    No problem. That's why forums like this exist. A ton of great people/info here. Post up pics once you get them installed!

  6. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    You are correct. My issues were with a separate mono amp for a sub I was adding. It's all installed and put back together. Sounds amazing. Thanks again Varilux. Full disclosure on the knee speakers... I put Noico sound deadener on the inside of the enclosure along with a bit of polyfill.

    Hahaha, I feel like the angle is similar. The sound is fuller if that makes sense. But if you need me to say it wasn't worth it then OK it wasn't worth it. (But I'd do mine again) hahaha
  8. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    I replace the knee panel speakers with some Focal 6.5s. I did it after I replaced the dash and soundbar speakers. I figured if I was going to go through the rest plus amp them I might as well. In for a penny , in for pound right? I had the passenger side mostly apart anyway running wires for the...

    Thanks for the info. I tried the brown wires and couldn't get it to work so I'm going the LOC route. I'll post an update after I get done. Appreciate you.
  10. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    I agree, 20 is about all you need on the volume. Very clear and crisp. LOC is coming tomorrow so I'm looking forward to filling in the low end. I'm assuming the rear will be purple or green. Which side of the harness should I grab the signal from?
  11. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    Sorry, I read it wrong. Yea I used the yellow and black connections on the harness
  12. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    I used a wire tap on the original factory harness (the one you will initially pull from the head unit). Varilux has a good pic of it in the first post. It's the red wire with the yellow tracer. You can pick these up just about anywhere. An auto parts store will probably be your best bet for...
  13. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    OK, I had to turn the gain down and the hissing is gone. Sounds awesome. I don't see how to connect the sub without some type of LOC. I spliced the RCAs from the amp to the sub out on the t harness and the sub in on the main harness. I'm either doing it wrong or it can't be done this way. I'm...
  14. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    Welp, I'm stumped. Got everything except the sub hooked up. Went to test the speakers before I reassembled everything. Screen turns on but no sound from the speakers ‍ ETA: my wire taps for the power and ground weren't in enough. I'm up and running but I have a hiss on all the speakers. It...
  15. PSA - Don't buy cheap wheel spacers

    Scary stuff and hopefully a lesson learned. Glad this one has a happy ending.
  16. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    Just got a shipping notice from Pac today. Once I receive it and get it installed I'll update.
  17. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    I ordered on May 24th. I emailed them June 3rd,they replied June 4th and said it was taking longer than anticipated and I would get an email when it shipped. Kinda sucks as I have the KTU, Punch amp, and JL Audio sub just waiting. I've never installed an amp on a factoy head unit before so I'm...
  18. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    I appreciate the info. Can't wait to get my harnesses and knock this out. The 2-4 day lead time has turned into 2 weeks and counting. Thanks again.
  19. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    Great info! I have all my components except for the main harness and t harness, on back order. I plan to add a mono amp and sub in addition to the Alpine KTU. I'm a bit confused as to how/best way to connect the mono amp. It may be more clear once I have the harnesses. Can anyone elaborate on...
