I'm an old audio guy, but newer technology when it comes to Audio has gotten away from me. Have any of you amplified (through a line-level converter) your factory head unit, to provide sweet sound to your speakers (I would replace the two in the dash and two in rollbar)? If so, did you have any luck, and how does it sound?
Next, can I somehow run XM/Sirius from my factory head unit on an X-Model? Or would I need to upgrade to a Rubicon factory head unit, and then add the Sirius/XM?
I really like the look of the factory radio, because when you ride without a top, park at work, and do not have armed personnel guarding your rig, people can jack your shit. I'm not above dealing with them if I catch them, but if I don't see it happen, I would prefer not to come out to my rig and see a hole in the dash, with wire spaghetti hanging out.
I can hide the amp, disguise killer wiring, but it's the setup that I have questions about.
Let me know if any of you guys have done this before, and if you've had success with it.
Thanks in advance...
