Alpine PSS-21WRA Full Sound System Upgrade Reviews
Components seems well built and fit factory placements. Wiring seemed complete and functional but I would recommend laying out entire wiring system and making sure all ends are correct. The ends were direct fix to the jeeps plugs, but the x-overs were not plug n play as described.
You'll need all the stuff in install manual plus, impact wrench(seat screws were tight!) Possibly a soldering kit, wire stripper/crimper and spade connectors of different gauges if wiring was like mine. Took a lot longer for me, but having the above stuff will make it quicker.
One speaker had a crack coming out of box so I had to email and get a replacement right off the bat.
My issues below:
1. Crack in front speaker, possibly due to poor packing.
2.X-overs for soundbar tweeters were a pain. They will need to be soldered(suggested) once threaded through opening between tweeter and speaker, other wise you'll need to do what I did; drillout hole so x-over fits through.
3. Not totally plug n play, many of the connectors either had two female ends or bare wire. Ended up cutting most off and soldering then shrink wrapping connections. 4. The main power supply wires both had male ends so I had to cut them off and buy new spade connectors and a stripper/cripper as well.
5.Did not come with poly fill sheets, I use quilt batting that I happened to have. Use more than the one 12" square. I found it not enough for soundbar speakers, with so much wiring and the x-over rattling in there.
All in all, a good system, just more work than a plug n play setup should be. Sound is great, a heck of a lot better than the stock stuff.
Installed in a 2015 JKUR. This was added to a stock 130 head unit. It sounds great! The only reason it gets 4 instead of 5 stars is because of the poor directions: 1. I needed to use youtube to figure out how to do the back speakers with the adapter. 2. The plug for the amp was not listed and I had to figure on my own how to plug it in so the subwoofer worked properly as it gave too much base through the 2-ways instead of the subwoofer, with the instructional plug configuration for the 130 unit. Just took some common sense and reading the amp plug labels to quickly figure it out. 3. The wiring that goes under the Jeep from the battery to the amp is not clear where it comes up under the seat. After a good deal of research, I finally figured out it is meant to come up through the drain plug grommet. You do NOT have to go through the Jeep firewall and do NOT have to drill any metal, just drill a hole in the rubber grommet, run through that and use silicone (mentioned in the directions) to seal the grommet back up. It works awesome, once you figure it out. I did add a little more polyfill than that which came with the set, some old stuffed animals of the kids put to good use :) I used factory settings on the amp and it is great with or without the top. I love having a great sound system with a crappy head unit due to theft prevention. People always try to steal the head units, but this is like a sleeper stereo now where it looks like junk at first glance, but is actually really great.
Completely Plug & Play EXCEPT:
1. Each of the 4 (four) 6.5" speakers requires an adapter ring be placed on the mounting spots,
2. Each of the tweeters requires an adapter. You need to cut the spades off the adapters. You need to connect the adapters to crossovers. You need to solder and shrink tube the connection.
3. You need to pull the rubber grommet from between the tweeter and 6.5" speaker mounting area in the sound bar which sealed the air space between the two. The grommet can not be replaced. Because the opening in the tweeter is not large enough to accommodate the crossover (neither is the opening from where you removed the rubber grommet) you need to wire the crossovers into the 6.5" speaker space.
4. The front passenger seat needs to be removed (If you have some PB Blaster and a breaker bar - maybe you consider that part of plug & play?)
5. You need to drill out some holes in the metal passenger seat bracket.
6. You need a 2nd person to hold the sub bracket against the seat with pliers because the bracket isn't nearly wide enough.
7. You need a second person to insert the amp bracket between the sub bracket and seat while using pliers to keep the brackets and seat together, because the included M6 screws aren't long enough.
Other than that it's plug & play.
A day and dozens of tweaks later and the sound is still way off - the highs are way too bright and the mids are entirely muddled.
Also - NEVER LEAVE YOUR TOP OFF OR DRAINAGE PLUGS OUT AGAIN!! The unit is not waterproof or water resistant and when installed the amp is practically sitting on the carpet.
For nearly $1,300. Not even partly impressed.
