Hello, I am new to the forums. I have a 2006 V6 Limited with the JBL sound system (I have the 6 disc changer as well as the rear woofer
). I also have the 3rd row seats in the back.
First off, I have spent a few days reading and searching these forums to find answers to my questions and have not been able to come up with any concise results. My main question is: where the heck is the JBL amp located? This link: http://www.jbltoyota.com/Toyota_rav4/amplifier.asp
did not help me out a bit. What molding should I peel back and look under? Where exactly is the amp located? Any photos?
I was originally planning on just adding a powered sub to the factory JBL system, but after reading multiple threads on this forum, I have come to the conclusion that I will not be able to do that with this JBL crap in my vehicle. So my next question is, IF I do want to actually add an amp and a boxed sub, I will need a new head unit :D . And if I get a new head unit, I might as well bypass the JBL amp and power the door speakers (might get new ones anyways) directly from the new head unit. Theoretically I would need to rewire the whole system right?
I have gone from simply adding a bazooka tube or something to a stock system, to needing to replace almost everything....which is fine with me. I love a good sounding stereo.
Where is the stock JBL amp located? and
Should I just rewire the whole system (from HU to door speakers) to utilize the full effect of the increased power an aftermarket HU would provide over the JBL amp?
