Default New Build - 2018 Grand Cherokee

I pulled all the audio out of my Mazda and traded it in on this beauty! It's the Altitude trim with leather seats (two tone with suede). For those of you who know the JGCs they have an enormous spare tire/storage area which is perfect for subwoofers and amps!

I have the following equipment from my Mazda:

Zapco 4 channel and sub amp, Audio Frog GB10s, GS40s and GS60s, MiniDSP 6x8, Fiio x3 and a Kicker 2 channel for rear fill.
(2) JL 10tw3s in a sealed box.

Basically this stuff:







I haven't decide which way I am going to go with this build... Not sure if I will use any of the above equipment, either.

The wheels are turning in my mind!

That's where I was when I got my Explorer a few months back. Still trying to make final decisions.

Nice looking ride. Congrats!

Subbed!!! Still working on a plan for our 2014 Grand Cherokee. Looks like the PAC Amp-Pro is an awesome piece to bypass that factory amp and get a great signal to start from, and you can get optical output from an optional add-on PAC offers. I've picked up the Rockford Fosgate DSR1 to use instead. And you're right, much as the idea of losing the spare tire seems bad, the space under there is ginormous!

You considering rear fill with this build? Those rear D pillars really are tiny, but Morel offers are 2.5" wideband now that might could work.

Thanks guys!!

Here are the doors I'm working with, I think they are 6x9s. They sound pretty good for factory speakers...

Not sure if I am going to do rear fill... But if I do there is plenty of space in the trunk to do some pods.

I think I could talk myself into loosing the spare, it wouldn't be the first time I was spare-less... Honestly, I have never had an actual flat tire in my life. A couple times I have had a nail in the tire, but was able to make it to the tire shop. Maybe having one of those small compressors on board could be cool...

Speaking of on-board, it has 115v outlet in the center console! That's pretty cool...


Aside from audio, I am going to do some other fun stuff, too. First, I'll get spacers to bring the wheels flush with the fender, and next will be lowering it with SRT springs.

Heck yeah! I'd love to go in that sportier direction with ours, but it's one of the off road oriented WK2, so going in the other direction.

Totally with you on the spare. Only had one, and of course for that instance, did not have a tire in the trunk. Doh! But, we're going with taller tires than stock anyways, so the spare will be useless on ours.

You thinking about getting the Audiofrog GS690 to complement your other ribbit gear?

Mine is 2wd, so it will stay on road. Are you going to lift yours and do new wheels and tires??

I am thinking, maybe I should try the AF 6x9s... The stock one has some shockingly decent bass, I was swearing that this thing has a subwoofer somewhere, but it doesn't.

I have never used a 6x9, are there any down sides over a 6.5??

No lift for ours, it has the Quadra-Lift air suspension to raise up for certain terrain, but heck yeah, these babies can tuck 32" tires no problem. Will be keeping the stock wheels, just changing tires.

But man, these WK2 can go sporty so easily. Especially yours, love the Altitude trim option, with the blacked out trim and tail lights, and the colored mesh grille pieces!

Hoping more will chime in on the 6x9 - HillBilly SQ has those AF GS690 and loves them. He is using them with just tweeters, no midrange, and from what I understand, it really jams. Think he has an AudioFrog subwoofer too. Awesome combo. I'm torn between keeping it 2 way in the front doors, or adding a midrange to the pillars. The DSR1 processor only has eight channels of output, and two are just for the subwoofer(s) So can either have 2 way plus rear fill, or 3 way. Kinda wish it had 12 channels, to retain the center channel and D pillar speakers, but oh well.

That Quadra-Lift air suspension is really nice... You basically have a built in lift/lowering on-demand.

The Altitude trim was mandatory for me, I didn't care about anything else but that...

The GS690s are almost 3" deep, but if HillbillySQ has them install there must not be any clearance issues. I'm thinking 2 way should be sufficient and once it's done decide if I want to add rear fill or not.

I thought my wife's had a subwoofer somewhere too. Looked everywhere. I then realized it is just the four 6x9 stock speakers which I believe are made by Alpine. The stock subwoofer location on the rear passenger side is good for a sealed 10.

It actually has a nice soundstage stock with the tweeters in the sails.

Yep, not bad for a base factory system... One of the better ones I've heard. Regardless, it's all getting yanked out! Lol

I have 2 Zapco amps and a cheap little Kicker for rear fill:

ST-4XP = 4x85 watts
ST-1000XM = 1x1,000 watts

I am thinking about either getting the new 6 channel Zapco OR just adding the 2 channel ST-2X SQ, encase I add rear fill or decide to do a 3way... The 6 channel will give me 15 more watts per channel, and I did feel like I could have used a little more power in my previous car with this equipment...

15 watts is an unnoticeable gain in DB. Just get a matching 2 channel for the rear.

Well, they are comfortable... I live in a very mild climate, so I might not have a qualified opinion of that.

Not even 6 x 15watts?

Regardless your advise is probably quite sensible... (maybe I am just looking for excuses to get that big, new beast, Lol)

Wowzer! 8" midbass... I'll check it out, thanks!

Hey, have you guys notice that on the under side of the GC's spare tire area (between the rear bumper and the rear wheels) there's another huge open space, looks like it could maybe even fit the spare tire...
My point would be, remove the spare from the inside for room for audio and then come up with an exterior/under mount solution for the spare..?
