Hello all.
I have the basic radio unit with the knobs on my JL - which i like; since most music will be via bluetooth, anyway. But i like to able to improve the sound quality. I did upgrade all the speakers but that did not help much.
Now what are my options of adding a small amp and a subwoofer - Is there any wiring diagram available to do such a modification. Also, is the next level radio on JL improvement on the sound or just bigger screen and more features.
Thanks
Mac

What is the sound lacking after you replaced all the speakers? What speakers did you install and did you add an amplifier to them?

Did you install coax or components in the front? There’s a few posts showing the location and color of wires in the rear sound bar. Make sure to run a power wire to the battery, grommet in the firewall, and put a fuse close to the battery.

You should be able to find the info in the sticky titled “Adding an Aftermarket Amp”

Speakers alone do nothing...you need more power to get the most out of them. I added a 10" JL Audio sub and a JL Audio amp...sounds amazing! Need the amp and sub...you'll be happy!
