Great components and other Crutchfield gear in a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Un
My Daughter just started driving and she wanted a Jeep. So a few months back we got her a 2013 Jeep Wrangler unlimited. Last weekend I had our local audio shop install all Crutchfield sourced gear into her Jeep. Head unit: Alpine 927 Navigation, Alpine 5 channel amp, JL Stealth box w/ 13" slim woofer, Retrosound component kit, Retrosound 652N 6.5" speakers, and the shop supplied the hard work to put it in--- also got from crutchfield the back up camera, and they recommended a special package and interface so she gets to keep her steering wheel controls, the installer had no problems putting the gear in, and all the crutchfield gear fit and worked flawlessly. I'm writing this review because I want everyone to know how darn good these component speakers sounded, I use Retrosound gear in all my classic cars ( 66 VW bug & 66 Mustang) --- WOW, I was blown away, how nice these sounded, the combo of the stealth box, amp and these components with the Retrosound 6.5" were downright breathtaking--- truly the best system I have ever heard in a car. a night and day upgrade from the gutless factory system. Kudos need to go to crutchfield for making sure I had all the wiring and interfaces to do the install myself (which would never happen in these newer cars)--- my installer was impressed with what Crutchfield supplied (apparently here in Wisconsin, they're a bit behind with some of the new car tech). I'm just plain jealous now! --- John
Pros: I have to say, when it comes to selling radios for new cars, crutchfield is on the ball, their website and phone service Rocks! they've always been spot on when I've purchased my Retrosound products, but now I'll go this route too for my newer cars--- Car stereo is still alive!!
Cons: Pricing was fair, their RCA cable selection seemed a bit sparse, so I had to get them locally, but that's really the only con i have.
