Hey guys, I posted this on sound domain, and was hoping maybe you would be nice enough to take a look too. Ok, So I've been trying to read through your forum and get a bit educated on car audio. Honestly I don't quite understand a lot of what is being said though. I do however have some simple questions. Here's some background. I have a 98 Jeep Cherokee. Road noise and a near 90 degree windshield are getting the best of my stock 4 speaker stereo. I would like to upgrade for under $1500. So here are my questions. I have searched some, but really didn't find what I wanted specifically, and have a few different questions also. 1: Can I get decent sound out of 5.25 speakers? The jeep holds 4 5.25in speakers in the stock positions. I would like to appear as stock as possible. 2: Is the difference between running those 4 speakers off of a 2 channel amp, or running them with the head unit something that I as a audio noob am going to notice? 3: I hope to add a subwoofer also, would the difference between a seperatly amplified sub, and one of those bazooka self amplified tubes be well noticeable to me? 4: is it easy to have a sub on quick disconnets? I don't mind crowding the cargo area, but when I need to haul gear for work or play I'd like to be able to throw the sub in the garage in less than 5 min. 5: Do you guys seriously take all the interior panels out of your vehicles ,apply sound deadeners, and then put the panels back? I am fairly electronically saavy, but audio dumb. I plan to install this all my self, but not without knowing the score first. Anyone's help, and patience is much appreciated.
