I compared the stock sound system to the Alpine sound system yesterday. The stock system is definitely improved on the stock JK system. The only problem I can foresee is the loudness of the system. In my opinion, you might have trouble hearing it with the top and doors off. The Alpine system is of course louder and has more bass, but personally I think the sound quality isn't as dramatic as in the JK systems. I ordered the Alpine system because of the loudness, bass, and I wanted the larger screen.

I have two kicker 15in subs that'll be going in the back. I'll replace all the speakers too. Are the speakers still the standard sizes?

I didn't take the grills off, but they looked like standard sizes. I should know this but I think it's 8 speakers like JK from 2016-2018.

Damn 15" subs! You're going to blow the top off...

They'll only be fully powered when the top is off lol
How is the vibration within the vehicle when the subs are on? I'm a diehard basshead and I'm thinking about throwing a pair of aftermarket subs into the new JL.

It pumps, bass shakes the rear window. It very sensative to input. Im old school and use Ipod Classic, the premium sound system seems more picky about input volume, and all of my albums are not the same quality. The JK premium didn't seem to mind this as much, but this system is def better than my 12 JKU. Bass hits!

If the only setting for that is in the audio menu, then no. But I will later to check it out. I remember seeing something that in that menu.... Thanks btw.

I’m happy to hear you like the premium system, my current JKU has the base system and going into it I knew it would suck, it actually sucks worse then suck, I really like music and my other cars have great sound systems, I was fine not having good sound in the wrangler for awhile ( I knew it wouldn’t be great going in, but also didn’t like the old sub placement) but it has worn on me so I ordered the works this time figuring it has to be a mega improvement.
