What Do You Need to Know Before Buying a Jeep Stereo?

Are you looking to upgrade the stereo system for your Jeep Wrangler or another model of Jeep? While these vehicles are a lot of fun to drive, many find the pre-installed stereo system doesn’t pack enough punch. Upgrading a stereo system can feel overwhelming with all the technical jargon.

Here are three topics to consider when upgrading the stereo system of your Jeep so you can avoid making the three biggest stereo installation faux pas.

Replacing the Soundbar for Your Jeep

The soundbar that comes pre-built in your Jeep leaves a lot to be desired. The power and sound quality struggle to perform, especially if you are driving with the top off. If you are looking to upgrade your stereo system, we recommend replacing the soundbar. This is the best way to boost the volume of your sound system.

Replacing your soundbar is also an opportunity to upgrade your style. Our enclosures come in black, red, and white and are designed to be classy enough for the JL Jeep yet rugged enough for the JT Jeep Gladiator. You can also take the opportunity to install add-ons like ring lights. These easy-to-install accessories offer an extra pop of personality to your stereo set-up.

Installing an Amplifier

Once you have decided to replace your soundbar, the next question is whether or not you will install an amplifier. In your factory-built stereo system, your speakers will be drawing power from your car stereo, which isn’t enough power to achieve quality sound.

An amplifier takes the audio signal from your stereo and boosts it with power from your battery. Higher power means higher volume potential and better sound quality. Without an amplifier, you can upgrade your speakers, but you will be limited to the power offered by your stereo. An amplifier will improve the sound quality of your current speakers and open up your options when selecting stereo systems for Jeep Wrangler.

Amplifiers also allow you to add a subwoofer to your system, which is the secret to a fuller bass sound.

Adding a Subwoofer

Most quality stereo systems come with three individual stereo heads – a tweeter, a woofer, and a subwoofer. Tweeters are the smallest and handle high frequencies, woofers create the middle frequencies, and subwoofers are the largest and cover the low frequencies.

Subwoofers require too much power to be run without an amplifier, so many pre-built stereo systems do not include a subwoofer. While your stereo will work without a subwoofer, the bass will lack depth and character. If you have already added an amplifier to your Jeep, adding a subwoofer is a great way to bring your sound to the next level.
