Your JL can sound as good as it looks

Your Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JL epitomizes fun. It does everything, goes everywhere, but I've gotta ask... does it sound as good as it could, especially when the top's down? Well, Alpine has a solution — Restyle. They've been creating great-sounding, seamless solutions for Wranglers a while now, and this Restyle PSS-23WRA audio upgrade package serves up everything you're missing in the JL factory system.

What this system's packin'

When the top is down and the wind's blowing, you can lose more than just your hat. Without a sub, your music's low end can sound less defined and the high frequency detail can get lost with the whoosh of passing traffic. This system adds Alpine's PWE-S8 powered 8" sub for some serious bass reinforcement and a pair of impressive SPR-10TW 1" silk dome tweeters to bring out all the high-frequency details. Of course, you'll need power for all your speakers, which is where the KTP-445U Power Pack comes in, supplying 45 watts RMS to your factory speakers and new tweeters.

Best of all, installation is simplified thanks to included Wrangler-specific brackets, adapters, and wiring harnesses.

Alpine PSS-23 - by FAR best in market!

MB from Berlin, MD on 8/25/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was a last minute spontaneous purchase and boy was it worth it! Love music and riding in my Jeep with the windows down, especially at the beach. I stopped at the Alpine tent at the the Ocean City Jeep Show to see what upgrades they off for the JL Rubicon system and was given a demo of the PSS-23 in a vehicle just like mine. Instant love. The sound quality was amazing. Best mod purchase thus far!!

Pros: Quick installation by professional techs Awesome sound quality No interior changes other than small joystick type control for base Fair price point

Cons: Haven't found any yet!

I installed the Alpine restyle system in my 2018 Wangler JL about a month ago. Worth the cost! Was relatively easy to install (multiple step by step videos out there) and the sound improvement is DRASTIC. Highly recommend. Just wish you could buy additional tweeters from Alpine like the two that are included to replace stock ones in the roll bar.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (JL)

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This review is for my fellow Jeepers. I bought a 2018 Wrangler JL Sahara Unlimited last year that came with just about everything I wanted for add-ons, except the upgraded stereo with the subwoofer in the back. I sat in a JL at the dealership that did have the sub in the back, and I cranked it up, and it was nice. Not spectacular but nice. This system is for those of us who didn't get the factory sub, and I'm so glad I didn't get the factory sub because this system is FAR better. Night and day. I don't want to sound like a commercial for Alpine, but it's going to be hard not to sound like one. The volume, the clarity, the speaker separation, the depth and yes, the massive bass from the subwoofer under the seat (which I've only turned up to half volume so far) is amazing. Even at highway speeds with the top off, this thing can get very loud and stay crystal clear. At 65 mph with the top off I turn it way up and it's so clear (and loud), and that's something I've never experienced with a Wrangler (this is my third). The tweeters that come with this package, the boost in power to the remaining factory speakers, the subwoofer - it's awesome. It took me about 4 hours to install, but it was so worth it. I watched the install videos online a few times and followed them step-by-step and it worked! I am not a mechanically inclined kind of guy but this plug-and-play system is so custom-fit for the JL. See, I told you this was going to sound like a commercial. Who cares, I love it.

Great upgrade for my existing equipment. Gives me clear crisp highs and just enough bass to know its there. Installation was a breeze. It took just over an hour to install this myself. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Features

Overview: Alpine's PSS-23WRA is a dedicated 300 watt sound system designed specifically for 2018 - Up Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JL vehicles not equipped with a factory amplified sound system. The system includes a KTP-445U 4 x 45 watt amplifier, SPR-10TW tweeters for the front dash, and a PWE-S8 8" powered subwoofer. The PSS-23WRA also includes a remote bass knob, for changing the bass level from the dash, along with all the mounting hardware and wiring harnesses necessary for mounting and adapting into the factory system.

Wiring: The PSS-23WRA system can be interfaced with a factory radio (non-amplified) or an aftermarket radio, including Alpine's Restyle headunits. The included T-harness interfaces the factory wiring in the dash, providing either a speaker-level signal from a factory radio or an RCA line-level signal from an aftermarket radio, to feed to the Alpine KTP-445U amplifier. The T-harness also feeds the amplified return signal back into the factory wiring and out to each of the speakers, utilizing the factory speaker wires. The provided wiring includes a 10 ga. power wire, with inline fuse holder, that gets run to the battery, providing power for both the 4-channel amp and the PWE-S8 subwoofer. Inline high-pass crossovers are provided for both sets of tweeters.

Mounting: Alpine provides a pre-attached bracket that mounts both the KTP-445U amp and the PWE-S8 subwoofer underneath the front passenger side seat. This means no usable space in the vehicle is taken up by the sound system. Each of the two tweeters also include pre-attached brackets, allowing them to sit in the factory locations and mount directly to the factory screw holes.

KTP-445U: The Alpine KTP-445U Head Unit Power Pack is a power upgrade amplifier that allows you to add higher output and more dynamic response to your aftermarket or factory installed car stereo system (without factory amplifiers). The Power Pack employs a 45 watt x 4 channel amplifier with an unbelievably low noise floor, taking extra care to ensure a clean signal path, with no extraneous interference. The end result is a 1 Watt Signal-to-Noise Ratio of 82dB or better. Uniquely, the amplifier distortion actually decreases at higher frequencies, resulting in a clean and clear signal where your ear is most sensitive to distortion (< 0.03% THD+N @ 1W; 1% THD+N @ rated power). The Alpine KTP-445U Head Unit Power Pack provides independent controls for the Front & Rear inputs.

  • Front & Rear Gains: The Power Pack provides simple variable gain controls (speaker level: 0.5-10V, low-level: 0.2-4V) for flexibility and a wide variety of system applications.
  • Front & Rear HPF: High-Pass selectable switches for the amplifier's Front & Rear inputs allow frequency filtering for a wide variety of speakers. Choose "Full-Range" or a selectable range (60Hz, 80Hz, 120Hz) to fine-tune your crossover points (-12dB/oct.).
  • Configurable Inputs: On the bottom panel of the Power Pack there are selectable input options to accommodate Speaker-Level (0.5V-10V) or RCA (0.2V-4V) inputs.
  • 4Ch/2Ch Modes: Selectable 2-Channel & 4-Channel options give you the control to determine source inputs, and can eliminate the need for Y-adapters.

PWE-S8: The Alpine PWE-S8 is a compact self-amplified subwoofer that's designed to fit in tight spaces, such as underneath the passenger's seat, which is where the included mounting hardware allows it to be hidden. The PWE-S8 includes a built-in 120 watt Class D amp along with an 8" high-excursion subwoofer. It can accept either line- or speaker-level inputs and features an Auto Turn-on circuit that will activate the amp when it senses a signal on the speaker-level inputs. An included wired remote lets you easily adjust the bass level from the front seating area. The control can be mounted under a dash panel and gives you a level range from 0 to -20 dB, relative to the gain setting on the amplifier. Controls on the subwoofer include:

  • Gain: Can vary the input level from 0.2 - 4.0 volts line-level and 0.5 - 10 volts speaker-level.
  • Low Pass Filter: Rotary control that can set the filter cutoff between 50 - 150 Hz.
  • Phase: Switches between 0˚ and 180˚.
  • Power Mode: Switches between SP IN (speaker-level input) and REM (wired remote input).

SPR-10TW: The included SPR-10TW tweeters are perfect for adding the extra high-end signals that are often missing from factory systems. The tweeter's pre-attached mounting brackets are designed to match perfectly to the factory mounting location and allow the tweeter to be tilted up to 15˚ in any direction to help focus the sound towards your ears. Each crossover has four tweeter level options, allowing you to precisely tune the high frequencies to the car interior and tweeter placement. Using the supplied jumpers select 0dB (no attenuation), -2dB, -4dB, or -6dB.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
Looks like a very simple plug and play system. Read reviews on the JL Forum of others that have bought it and are happy with it. I'm not looking for a crazy loud system, just want to hear my music with the top off and I hope this helps. After I install it I will post my thoughts on it. [ adam  Oct 05, 2018 ]

Q
I have the factory alpine system with 8" screen. Will this work with it?
[ Cerunnos917  Apr 15, 2019 ]

A
Wouldn't see why not. I have a '18 JLUR with the 7" screen. No issues. Tight fit. Make sure all wiring is tucked away before reattaching the seat to ensure no clearance issues with the slide mechanisms. Quadratec has a HOWTO video on the interwebs.
[ JOSHUA  Apr 16, 2019 ]
Q
I already have the subwoofer from my previous jeep. Is there somewhere I can just buy the T-harness to be able to plug into the JL head unit?
