Im new to car audio but have a 2016 jeep wrangler 4 door and am building a system for it. So far ive bought a kenwood dnn992 headunit, four polk audio 6.5s for factory locations, three polk audio 12s, polk audio 1200 watt mono amp for subs, polk audio 200x4 amp for the 6.5s. Plan on having custom sealed box built. I also have fosgate amp kits.

Is there anything else i need like a audio controll epicenter etc to make the most of my sounds.

Any electrical upgrades?

If not, big 3 is a must, stock battery with a better one and possibly a HO alt.

Oh btw, like Polk much :D

I havent done that stuff but will. Chose polk because marine certified plus the installer told me the amps are good so decided to just buy all polk lol. I had bought a dsp by audio controll but they told me it wasnt needed so to return it.

May not NEED a DSP but it is a good idea. It will allow for better imaging and more detailed sound.
You'll want them to spend the most time deadening and eliminating as much road noise as possible.

No need for an epicenter or anything like that.

Wasn't needed??

Is it his system or yours?

03-04-2017, 01:28 AM
Its mine but i honestly dont know what im doing. Last system i built was 20 something years ago in highschool and since then the brands etc have changed allot since then, **** i feel old now lol.

Anyway i told him i thought we needed good crossover or dsp as the ones built in amps arent that great and he said the technology has improved allot and the dsp wasnt really needed anymore.

I urge you to slow down and go to Handcrafted in Chandler before you make a mistake. At least get a second quote and visit them.

Ill check them out, to be honest sonfar ive talked to jason out on 35th ave, soundwerks on bell, street fighter on bell, stereo joe and thats it. Ive heard so kuch conflicted stuff its crazy

I need dsp vs no longer needed
Run sundown vs it just makes noise but not good in sq
Etc etc

Even the install and box prices are crazy

Jason said hed build me a sick box and install for like 800

Soundwerks 1000 for less nice box (no led plexi et ) and 300 install

Street fighter gave something like 1500 for basic box and install

Stereo joe i think I confused lol. That guy was talking 3,000 for box and install when my friend got hisdone there custom box and install for like 800

No joke man, 3gs and i supply the equipment ill show you the two boxes im showing the shops. Most the cost is in the boxes as the installs are cheap like 300-500 for everything.

I really planned on running dsp, genesis dual battery setup with two yellow tops, high output alternater and better ground but some shops are telling me its no longer needed.

This is going in a wrangler so deadening isnt goinfg to be very effective since ill be going top down etc at times

Not needed my a$$. I will argue the electrical is a must when adding anything audio.

Those installs look very nice but the JL one i question because a lot of suv's like subs up port back.

Thats what i was thinking too man, i think ill upgrade the electrical even if they say irs not needed lol.

I like the looks of that one but want my amps on floor under plexi with plexi on the box. I plan on using it more for show than sound, i want good sq but the ability to have bass as i listen to allot of 90s rap.

Heres the jeep itll be going in, itll look a little different soon though as have a 4" lift, bigger tires and different hood installed soon. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170304/ff7fdc60d131a3c106d36880c643010c.jpg

Found a sick shop and they designed a box for me the box has floor to it with sunk in spaces for amps and dsp all under plexi and lit up by leds. There will be three 12s and the box will have plexi windows and back so i can fold the seat down and watch the subs. Heres some of the shops work. Ill ask them to take pics of my build as they go. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170304/cb01e461df17a6bd5884b26b56811a4e.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170304/e588b99e06646ced4cbbd2cd390c0555.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170304/4a5f03deee3354bf233015f84b7e5632.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170304/cf8f1d0f1efa5bbfd29b31ecfad04d63.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170304/2ee654604e7d87f02429b71f2aae3bd1.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170304/45f59b3e79f5ed2d696bdf3b8ebc718b.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170304/3523a6e6bb00cdaf10a071c634b04876.jpg

Thanks guys going to put in a genesis dual battery setup and a custom alternator. First going to update my polk audio stuff. Already bought two morel component sets. But in few weeks when i get paid going to order 3 crossfire c512s , crossfire c1700 amp and crossfire 800.4 amp.

To be honest when done with system will only be into it about 3000 which is really cheap compared to allot of systems. Jason gave me what i think is a great deal on the box and install. Im going to buy the crossfire stuff from him also.

I have a 3 12" setup as well and once I decided to BUILD a lil' something... The electrical, interconnect and deadener alone set me back a little more than my wife liked... Once I got clearance to spend... Ha!... Game on!.. I was watchin' the $$$ as well as anyone... but it is inevitable... I have a TRUE BUDGET BUILD but unfortunately even those will cost you... Hell... you're buyin' nice gear so don't cut corners... Sweet Jeep!

Thanks man. Been reading your post and have decided you must be old like me, im almost 40 lol. Yeah on my jeep i been trying to do everything right without cutting corners. Still have to lift it and few more things. Should be getting the jeep back monday i think, they said the upholstery shop has wrapped and stitched it now so i think they just have to connect all the wires.

Sorry havent posted in a while, my old *** forgot my password lol. Anyway jeep going back in shop tommorow for upgrades. They are putting three crossfire c512s, two crossfire 6.5 component systems, crossfire c5 1700 amp and crossfire 800.4 amp. Will also put more etched and plexiglass and led lighting.

Once thats done theyll build a underseat box kinda like on pic but with 2 crossfire 6.5 and 1 crossfire 8" loudspeakers pushed by a crossfire c5 500. Also a epicenter with spl monitor will be mounted in console and a audiocontrol dqdx dsp either hidden under false floor or floated, havent decided where to mount the dsp.

Goal is to finish the first stage in like a week and the second stage in time for the solid car show on may 21st , plan on entering the install category
