I've never upgraded my factory car audio in my life. I bought a 2013 Jeep Wrangler and I love it! The only problem is that when I'm on the highway with the top down (which is often) I want to crank the stereo up so I can hear it. I am worried that I'm going to blow the factory speakers if I crank it up too far. I never go above 75% on the volume for fear of destroying the speakers. But 75% on that system is not enough to hear clearly and get the volume I'm looking for.
I think I'd like to upgrade to speakers that can handle louder volumes and maybe put a small amp in there to give the speakers clarity and a slight amount of thump. But like I said...I have no clue what I'm doing.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how to proceed? Do I need an amp? Do I just need better speakers? I'd prefer not to put a subwoofer in. I don't like a crazy amount of bass, but I do like a slight amount of thump. Clarity is the most important thing to me.
OK - I'm rambling. Any guidance would be appreciated!
