A client from Chilliwack recently visited Certified Autosound and Security about upgrading his 2018 Jeep Wrangler audio system. We talked to the client about how he listens to his music and what his goals were for the upgrade. After auditioning several products in our store, we put together a quote to install an upgrade that would provide the performance he wanted with a cool and unique look.
Pioneer Source Unit Upgrade
The project started with removing the factory source unit and speakers. We installed a Pioneer AVIC-7200NEX multimedia receiver in the factory dash location. A Maestro RR integration module provides communication with the vehicle to display tire pressure, battery voltage and real-time gauge information for the speedometer, tachometer, fuel level and more.
We added a Rydeen MINy SuperWide camera to the rear of the vehicle so that the client can see an image of everything when the transmission is in reverse.
BLAM Speaker Upgrades
The next step in the project was to upgrade the speakers. The client chose the BLAM 165 Multix LE 6.5-inch components for the front of the Jeep. There are only 25 sets of these speakers in Canada, and they sound amazing. We installed the woofers in the factory pods in the dash and added some SQL sound deadening to prevent any buzzes or rattles. For rear speakers, the client chose BLAM 165 RSQ components for the overhead speaker locations.
JL Audio System Amplifiers
The output of the Pioneer source unit feeds to an Audison bit One digital signal processor. The bit One gives us complete control over crossovers, equalization and signal delay for each speaker in the system. A four-channel JL Audio HD600/4 amplifier in a fully active configuration powers the front speakers. A JL Audio XD200/2 powers the rear speakers while an HD1200/1 powers the subwoofers.
Our fabrication team created a false floor in the back of the Jeep and highlighted the Audison processor with an LED-illuminated plexiglass ring.
Custom Subwoofer System
The client wanted bass that would get loud and play nice and low. Our fabrication team created a down-firing enclosure for a pair of JL Audio 12TW3 12-inch subwoofers. The enclosure is trimmed in black vinyl and includes an illuminated accent on the top that matches the one on the false floor.
