  1. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Hey Nick, yes the specs are the key for choosing resistors. If you are using the PAC, you don't need to use them. Good luck with your install!
  2. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Rarely stall offroad. With the break hold feature in the latest Tazer updates, it's much easier now.

    PAC AmpPRO. You'll need new speakers in about a week.

  5. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    It is, and Travis has helped quite a few folks here. I'm on the road so I can't respond to the other questions at the moment, but will if others haven't chimed in by then.
  6. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    It's a good question, and while addressed, it's worth repeating that the stock speakers are very close to being maxed out by the existing amp. They "might" sound better for a little while, but will likely get damaged quickly. Stock systems are tuned for max performance given the provided...
  7. Center Console USB Wonky -- we know that... however... does the latest Uconnect update fix it? Anyone who has gotten the newest update report in?

    (Disclaimer: I haven't read the entire thread.) I use the AAWireless device for wireless Android Auto, and have found that there's quite a difference in performance if the AAWireless device is mounted in the front of the center console vs. the rear. There seems to be just enough interference...
  8. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Running heavy Nitto 40" Trail's, and the Jeep's pretty heavy, too. Gears are 5.13's. While they are indeed working great, if I were to re-gear again soon (or upgrade my axles) I would definitely go with 5.38's. My JLUR is a manual, and I am able to use 6th gear above 70. The crazy thing...
  9. Audio System Aftermarket Upgrade

    'SUP man! It's been a while... Hope you and your family are doing well!
  10. Battery Disconnect for Winch?

    Had the same concerns. I picked one up at one of the local auto parts stores. The secret is, don't cheap out. The inexpensive ones generally can't handle enough amperage to run a winch that's under load. Check the load needs of your winch, and make sure your cutoff switch can handle it.
  11. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Bobby, here's the manual for your amp: Check page 19 first, then 6-9, then 14-15. 19 displays the crossover and filter options available for the Front/Rear/Sub channels. Pages 6-9 reviews what those...
  12. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Hard to say, but make sure the signal going to your sub is crossed over to pass through only the sub frequencies. Occasionally folks accidentally send a full spectrum signal to the sub, which can cause it to choke.
  13. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I'm pretty sure he used the JL Audio amp rack designed for the JL. It's a great option.
  14. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    FYI, you really need to move that strap to a different location. The sub will hit it, which can seriously distort the bass and potentially damage the woofer. You could add some hardware to the sides of the box that your strap would connect to.
  15. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Easiest way to get clean sound is to use the PAC Amp Pro, though you should be able to use resistors on the post amp signal to feed into a JL Fix86. There's a few other dsp options that may work, but you have to make sure that your dsp flattens the stock signal, otherwise your equalization will...
  16. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Just a suggestion... The factory amp is matched to the specs of the stock speakers. More power will stress the stock speakers if pushed. Replacing the stock amp alone would be very difficult, since the stock amp handles the sound conversion, like the PAC does. Unless you found a uConnect amp...
  17. Bang like a Brick Landing on the Roof

    Do you by chance have a manual transmission? I ask because there were a few occasions where loud banging noises occurred while driving, and I seriously thought I was being shot at. This happened a couple of times, and let's just say that I was one of the lucky ones who qualified for the full...
  18. Aux Switches not working

    Check your battery levels. There are certain components that don't function when the battery is below (and I'm guessing here) 12V. Every now and then I notice mine won't turn on, and at the same time that happens, my BlackVue cameras won't turn on either. Both have that 12V threshold, and...
  19. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    If your amps have knobs/posts that you twist to adjust your gains, try this... Note where your gains are set, then (with your Jeep and stereo off) take a small screw driver and rotate the gain knobs to max and then to min consecutively for about 20 seconds, or so. Then return them to the...
  20. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I didn't run long RCA's, as I used the JL Fix approach and mounted it in the rear, right next to my amps. You may need to break out the tape measure to account for the cable drop drop to the floorboard after the PAC, likely on the passenger side of the glove box, and then rearward towards your...
