Default Throwing the idea around...

So, I have the aftermarket Kicker Mopar component system in my truck and I really like it. Especially, pairing it with the sub in the FoxBox. What I think I may want to do is buy the Kicker DX 400.4 to match the DX 500.1 that runs my sub and have it run my components...

I was just wondering how much of a pain in the ass it would be to run the wires and all the splicing because the speakers use plugs and are not just soldered or the screw type connectors.

What do you guys think? Especially, you Morgan LOL

I think it will sound great, but that's all the knowledge I have.

Ha, thanks... I like the way it sounds now, but as you may know, modding never ends

No, mine came with the stock 15 watt speakers and replaced it with the Kicker kit that's specific to new mopars. I really like it, comes with 4 6X9's and the 2 tweets all for about $300 bucks. Then the gf got me a Kicker monoblock amp and foxbox for Xmas last year. I just threw a sub I had laying in the garage, which as soon as it blows I'm replacing it with a Kicker. That way it will be all Kicker components...

oh, then I would just run some speedwire up behind the dash, and splice it in there. No real "need" to run new wires to each speaker.

That's what I was kinda thinking, but I was just wondering how much power/signal would be lost bc of the added resistance with basically double the length of wiring. OR I'm just nuking it... haha

Glad you guys have faith in me!

Jeremy is right, just run some speed wire from the amp to the radio and splice it in there. Running speaker wires through the doors is a huge PITA!

What about the signal? That's the main thing I was worried about. It should be fine, right?
