JK stereo finished

After a lot of research ,adding and upgrading components ,and a lot of trial and error I'm done.Hertz HSK 165 components in the dash and hertz HCX 165 coax in the soundbar .i installed an JL audio 8w3 sub in the factory enclosure.I have an JL audio XD 400/4 amp powering the Hertz speakers with 75watts per channel and an alpine mrv500 powering the JL woofer.oringinally I kept the factory headunit and connected it to an Audison bit ten which then sent the signal to the amps.but there was an audible hiss in the speakers and for the money the system didnt sound as good as it should have.dont get me wrong it sounded good ,but something was missing.so finally I replaced the factory headunit with a pioneer 3600 touchscreen radio and wow .the pioneer was the final piece in the puzzle .the system sounds amazing ,and for the money I spent it should lol,you have to hear it to truly appreciate it.its so clear and precise and loud .the last thing I'm gonna do is add a hertz hdp4 amp which pumps out 125 watts per channel and I'm done .acouple of observations ,first the JL audio C2 s speakers sound great for the money,the alpine amps are good and match up well to the c2s .if you are gonna keep your headunit go with the Jl audio cleansweep to add amps.and the biggest sound improvement you can make is replacing the headunit.the factory radio sucks .hope this helps
