Gray Nail's 2004 Dodge 1500 4x4 Quad cab

Items installed:

Installation Description

The JL500/1 located under the driver's seat delivers 500 watts RMS @ 4 ohms of clean power to (2) 10" JL(dvc)subs wired in series in a Magnaform enclosure under the rear seats. The JL300/4 powers (2) JL 6W0s located in the front doors. I had to trim (2) Scosche 6x9 speaker brackets and cover them with Dynamat Extreme so the 6" woofers would fit in the factory location. The JL300/4, using built-in cross-overs, also powers a set of JL's flagship component tweeters mounted just below the A-pillers on each door for great stereo imaging. The factory-installed Infinity amplifier powers the factory coaxials in the dash as well as the aftermarket Infinity Kappa coaxials located in the rear doors which also have Dynamat. There is Monster Cable throughout commanded by a Clarion ProAudio AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA head unit with SIRIUS Satellite radio. I installed all the equipment in my Dodge while it was parked in my driveway.

Q&A Section

Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?

Even a premium factory stereo system can't meet my audiophile demands.

What's the first thing you show people about your installation?

The subwoofer enclosure matches my truck so well it looks like it's factory.

Why did you choose these products?

I wanted quality, high-powered sound and easy installation of equipment that didn't take up needed space.

What was the most difficult part of the installation?

Wiring the speakers in the front doors and getting them to fit properly was the most difficult part.

What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?

I'm considering an iPod with an adapter that I can integrate through my head unit.

The Clarion stereo is built for the best possible sound.

The JL tweeters and mids provide crisp, precise sound.

Power for the door speakers comes from a JL300/4 amplifier.

Two JL subs provide more than enough bass to fill up the cab of this Dodge.

    I have a 2004 Dodge Ram with Infinity Sound like this one. My Head unit includes a 6 CD changer (but will not eject CD's now!) The speakers have a rattle or vibration now after nearly 20 years of daily use. I think I need to replace the door speakers and head unit. I've bought from Crutchfield since 1974 when you opened. Your advice and support is appreciated and the reason I come back for at least 15 installations. I need advice for this one. Is a similar 6 CD CD changer available today?

    John, Welcome back! Those 6-disc changers are kinda rare these days, but we can still help you upgrade your audio system. When you enter your vehicle's info into our Outfit My Car tool, you'll see which stereos (and speakers) fit your truck, plus the correct harness. If you have any questions, our advisors are available via phone or chat.

    I purchased a used 2019 Ram pick up with a Radio but no hands free phone. What do I need to upgrade to hands Free?
