Upgraded and replaced the Alpine factory installed audio using (2) Focal 165K2 Elite Power component systems in the dash and soundbar. Custom fabricated subwoofer enclosure with (2) 10" subwoofers, wrapped in matte red vinyl to match the dash, and featuring laser etched logo and hand-cut billet aluminum shaped to match the Jeeps design elements. Audison Bit One processor and Alpine X-A90V 5-Channel Power Density Amplifier custom mounted in the hidden cargo compartment.

See my garage with more photos and build details

Built by Showtime Audio Chicago

Showtime Audio in Chicago custom fabricated each location for the install, and then designed actual templates based off my Jeep, in order to have it available to other 2018 JLs.

No plug and play available, unfortunately, but well worth the extra for the quality of Focal.

Now that's a bad ass looking system. I see the Audison Bit One processor on the left what's to the right of the trunk area?

Are you going to get a non Subwoofer rear pass. panel to replace the factory sub location?

yeah that's the plan, not available yet. the sound is beyond amazing. never had Focal before, but the clarity of the highs make them worth the heavy price tag.

That must sound amazing. I have the Focal Electra 1028be system for my home theatre and they sound amazing. I’m a fan of Focal and have been for 20+ years.

How does the stock radio/Head unit integrate with the processor?

Works great, and yes sound is beyond amazing. I needed something that had enough clarity when the doors and or top was off, which my JK with MB Quartz just couldn’t come close.

The processor is great and the programming is solid, just wish there was a MacOS version of the Audioson software.

I have to imagine your home theatre gets the same insane results from the Focals. They are by far the best components I’ve ever heard.

Awesome install! So they are 6.5", correct? How hard was it to mount them in the dash and overhead? Any fabbing or anything? Thanks.
