    Icon32 What would work best in my Jeep Wrangler???

    I have a 2002 Jeep Wrangler and need some help! I received a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X859 and a Music Keg for Christmas. I have the factory Speakers (Two Front speakers, two back, and a sub in the center console). There really isn't much room in the car for other enclosures for a sub or anything. Should I install an amp, put new speakers in, etc... what would sound the best??
    Thanks so much for any help, I'm really new to this stuff and really need the help!

    Depends on how much $ you want to spend. but to start I would upgrade the speakers and if you wanted power those with a 4 channel amp. If you didn't want to fill your trunk with a box you could try replacing that sub in the center (assuming its factory) and powering that with a new amp.

    The Music Keg is a hard drive that will interface directly into the Head Unit. It has a 10 gig hard drive that will hold about 2500 songs in MP3 format. I would really like to keep the rest of the cost under $600-700.

    Yeah it would be a good idea to. It will make the speakers sound a lot better, and be able to get louder without distorting probably too. What kinda sub set-up do you have in the center console?



    Alpine 7892
    JBL 80.4 Amp
    Type R 5.25 Comps
    Type R 5.25 Coaxials
    JBL 600/1 amp
    JL 12" W6 V2

    The sub is an 8" powered by the HU and enclosed in the console between the two front seats. Thats all I really know about it.
    Thanks for the help.
