Finally made the decision to redo my stereo. May have gone a lil bit overboard but hay what's the worst that can happen lol. Still need to finishing tuning stereo and building trim piece to wall it off but so far sounding good. 2 Rockford Fosgate P3D4 15s 2 Rockford Fosgate P3D4 12s 4 Alpine 6x9s 2 Kicker 3.5s in dash Soundstream Tarantula T1.6000DL Subs wired in parallel to 0.5 ohms WestCoast Customs WCC1500.1 mono amp made by MB Quart for 2 door speakers to be added later WestCoast Customs WCC1600.4 4 channel amp running to 6x9s in doors Kenwood DDX774BT Double Din head unit XS Power D925 battery 1/0 wire wire Reason i decided on running both 12s and 15 is to have a wider range in frequencies.
Locosiete posted a topic in Audio, Infotainment Navigation, MyGig, UConnect, etc.This is a brief walk through to install the Metra 99-6520B dash kit in order to install an aftermarket stereo. Instructions included are not too great and couldn't find anything online so thought I'd do this in case someone else needs help down the road. First start by removing shift knob and lifting bezel with cup holders off. You'll need to open center console to get if off. Next remove storage bin by pressing down then pull towards rear. Remove the clips and add to new hvac controls Install hvac controls Put bezel back on Ii found there a nice open space above stereo you can tuck all the components into. That will free room for stereo to fit in I plan on repainting the silver black so it matches better. But for now this is what i have The red 12 volt accessory wire from the 16 pin connection on the adapter is a output not an input. Doesn't say one way or another on Instruction. So connect the red wire from your stereo and the steering wheel interface. The axxess aswc-1 is pre-wired to be plug and plug but sold separately. It also say to connect blue wire to remote of stereo and that is not needed if you have a non amp factory system. Hope this helps. I will add more info as i remember. Here is picture after painting the silver a matte black
Katmont posted a topic in Audio, Infotainment Navigation, MyGig, UConnect, etc.Hello everyone, I have been having issues with my battery draining if my Dodge is idle for more than 24 hours. The battery has been changed and tested. My auto electrician has tested several different things that could be draining the battery and has pin pointed the issue to my stereo. I need to replace the stereo, I would like to buy second hand but not sure what I'm looking for online. Will any stereo that is compatible for Journey 2012 be suitable? Thanks
Hello fellow DJ owners. I have just completed the "big three" on my 2014 Journey. I did this in preparation for my aftermarket sound system i will be installing soon. I recommend that ANYBODY planning on adding an aftermarket amp or other high current devices to your DJ do the big three. The factory wiring under the hood in these vehicles is sub-par at best. The factory ground from the battery to chassis was maybe 8 gauge. Anybody adding anything electronic wise will benefit from this upgrade . The job was not terribly difficult to accomplish however gaining access to the battery terminals was a pit of a pain. It took a couple of hours but i was taking my time, everything worked out perfect, no problems. If you do a big three be sure to fuse the alternator to to battery positive. There is some debate whether this is necessary or not. You should always fuse within a foot of the battery. As for the sound system goes here it is: I am keeping the factory base 4.3 Uconnect, Relocating the rear door 6x9's to the far rear panels(there are "dummy" grills back there, for premium sound system maybe?) and keeping the dash 3.5's, and removing the stock front door 6x9's This is to maintain a load on the factory head unit so it will continue to send a signal to all four channels. (the 4.3 has six speakers but only four channels, the dash and front doors are wired in parallel) I will be tapping into those signals at the factory speakers using an AudioControl LC7i, then to my Polk 5 channel amp and out to my new Polk component speakers in the doors, and a Polk 8" sub woofer under the driver seat in a seald box build by myself(yes i got it to fit, barely). So i will end up with this: dash 3.5 and far rear 6x9's will receive stock head unit's 15 watts, and new components in the doors will get amplified 70 watts rms and 200 to the sub. So there it is in a nutshell. I will post an update once it is complete or if i have any problems with my plan i will let you know. I wanted to post and contribute something to these forums. I have been doing alot of reading on here and have gotten some good info.And now it is my time to give something back.
