stereo upgrade

Suggestion: a car audio section in the forum.

Question: what are some options to improve the stereo in a stock 2013 Unlimited with the connectivity package, but not the upgraded stereo?

I'm kinda glad I didn't get the upgraded stereo, because I heard it isn't the best sound either. But MAN, this stock system is GARBAGE.

So, the very first order of business after picking up my Jeep this morning... gotta make this thing sound better.

I've heard of after market speaker bars. Any reviews/suggestions?

What are some good speaker options considering the space restrictions?

Gonna need an amp, and possibly a subwoofer. Looking for some creative locations to mount these. Can't go under the rear seats, I wanna fold them down some times.

So let's see these audio systems!

Look through the Electrical and Lighting section of the forum. All the stereo information is in there and all your questions have been discussed in several threads there.

I mounted an amp under each front seat and had a box built to fit behind the dual back seat for the sub and attached it to the seat mounting bolts so it won't walk off.

Look at the thread AMP Mounting Bracket.

Jl system

I upgraded my entire system with JL including amps, 12w7, mids and components sounds incredible. I lined the entire rear section under the carpet with Stinger sound deadening and placed hardliners in as well.

Well no, the stock system (low end to RHR) is not going to be awesome sounding, but you're not going to get awesome sound in a JK unless you deaden the entire thing and sit in the garage for listening sessions with the motor off.
