How many watts and what kind is the stereo in a Jeep?

Just a question guys, what type stereo is in my '98 TJ and how many watts is it? Its the cassette/AM/FM one if that helps. All I know is it sucks and I need something that will do a little better. (Plus speakers of course)

Not sure on the wattage but it is a Delphi headunit.

Do you have a factory console subwoofer or infinity basslink? If not then add a subwoofer (they're not too loud) and replace the stock speakers with the best you can afford. Upgrade the front dash with 5.25" ones (you'll need to buy/make adaptor plates). Then if you don't like the sound replace the HU.

My stock 7 speaker system doesn't sound all that great with either tops on but I think DC really tuned it to topless/doorless because it sounds GREAT with the top and doors off. I replaced just the speakers in my 96 XJ to a set of infinity and a set of polk audio and it made a world of difference.

I dont undetrstand why you need to know the wattage but I would assume its something like 11 watts RMS at max volume??? but the clarity of the internal amp at that volume is horrible.

I measured the power from my extremely crappy and likely malfunctioning 2k CD player before it died and it gave out a mind-crushing 2W of usable power. I believe it to be on the horribly low end of the spectrum and I'm assuming most non-amped factory units operate at a good 7-12W range or so. (this would not include power to the factory subs.) Most good aftermarket head unis will be more in the range of 15-20W of usable power. (per channel into standard 4-ohm speakers)
