I have a 2005 limited wk with a hemi. I have the navigation head unit with the boston acoustic sound system. Will some explain to me how I wire the amp? I tried the other night and couldn't get the remote wire to power the amp on. I had tried wiring the remote wire to the fuse box under the hood to several different fuses including the radio/navi. Any help would b much appreciated. Its a jl audio 500/1v2 amp. And a jl audio w6 sub
Ok... so im guessing you split off the door speakers for the input signal to your amp right?
The remote power line needs i believe 12v for the signal. Take a voltage tester and find a switch or something that gets a constant 12v only when the power is on to the vehicle.
I know your amp has a built in filter, but those never work all that great. If you can, get a hi-lo converter and swap the connection to an RCA. Really without re-wiring the entire car and a new head unit, the bass wont be all that amazing. It will be better than stock, but not by a huge amount. Also the kicker upgrade for the jeeps seem to be a great upgrade if you already have the Bose system. Unfortunately for me, I do not... so re-wiring the whole thing is my only option lol.

All you have to do, is remove the dash pieces and get at the pos + wire that runs into the drivers side cigarette lighter, that one turns on with the car. Works like a charm. Go to radio shack or online and purchase a T-tap connector, it allows you to tap your remote wire into the existing cig wire, without cutting it. Easy to do, you just crimp it on.

Rather than doing any splicing and running your amp off hi-level speaker inputs, I recommend getting the
PAC-Audio add an amp unit for your jeep. I have it installed in mine. It gives you two sets (front&rear) RCA outputs, and a Remote Out wire. It's only about $90, and plugs in behind the radio.
