I have a 2002 GC laredo with a v8 and selectrac. This morning while driving to work i felt the slip alittle when going into 1st gear but was fine shifting into the other gears after that. Tonight coming home, I was stopped at a light and when I stepped on the gas pedal the motor just raced and the Jeep would not move. Also, the check engine light went on. Would not go into reverse either. Had to get it towed to my mechanic. He'll look at it tomorrow. Any idea what kind of repairs I am facing? Jeep has 61k miles on it and always shifted perfectly until now. Had fluid and filter replaced at 55K as well. Thanks5 AnswersJeep1 decade ago
Does anyone know the resistance levels of the rear door speakers of a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the factory Infinity system. Currently I have them wired to an aftermarket headunit, and want to make sure I dont blow the internal amp. Also, if the resistance level presents a problem, can I just wire the back speakers in series to the radio? Also, I usually fade about 70% of the sound to the front speakers which are powered by an alpine amp.
I installed a pair of CDT audio cl-62 component speakers. They are rated at 160W rms and have a sensitivity rating of 92.3. They sound good but I'm wondering if they can sound better. I am powering them with 40W rms each with an Alpine mrp-f240 amp. I dont really play it super loud, but I like good accurate sound quality and to fill the whole truck. Questions...would upgrading the power of my amp make a noticable difference in sound quality? or would it just allow me to play the speakers louder?
I am using an Alpine mrp-f240 in 3 channel mode. Channels 1 and 2 running the front components, and bridging the rear channels to run a single 4 ohm sub. Problem is the sub worked for about an hour and them stopped. The front channels are working perfectly. I did a test by substituting the front rca jacks on the rear channels and still no output. I know that the back channels were working fine previously because I had them running the rear door speakers for a few months. Is it possible that I burned out just the rear channels without affecting the fronts? If so, what could have been the cause? I don't want to repeat the mistake if I get another amp. could it have been a shorted subwoofer? The sub was bought as a factory refurbished unit (infinity 1050w 10" sub). Any suggestions would be great.
Currently, I only have 100 watts rms available to power a sub ( channels 3 and 4 bridged on my 4 channel Alpine ). Looking for a SQ setup and am deciding between the Infinity Reference 1050w or the Polk Momo MM2014. I don't play my music insanely loud, I just want to fill out the lower frequencies. Music is mostly rock and jazz.
Polk - 50 - 300 rms, 86 sensitivity
Infinity 60 - 250 rms, 91db sensitivity
Planning on using a sealed enclosure. With the limited amount of power I have, which would make the better choice?6 AnswersCar Audio1 decade ago
I have an 02 Grand Cherokee and was thinking of swapping the factory radio for an Alpine cda-9885. I already changed the front speakers to a cdt component set and replaced the amp. Question.....Other than increased functionality, will I hear a noticable difference in sound quality? Also, adding a new radio will make adding a sub easier.
I have a 2002 Grand Cherokee with the Infinity sound system. I plan on replacing the amp and front door speakers with either coaxial or components. I'd like to try and keep the dash speakers active for a higher soundstage. Question:...Would I run into impedence issues if I parallel wire the dash speakers with the front door speakers? I would use either the crossover or a capacitor (bass blocker) depending on which door speaker setup i choose.
I have a Dell Dimension 5100 desktop. Here's the problem:
When I try booting up the computer, the cpu fan gradually picks up speed immediately and gets to a very high speed within about 10 seconds and then the system shuts down. I get a message saying 'previous shutdown due to thermal event'. I reseated and cleaned everything and same problem. Then I replaced the motherboard and have the same problems. Not sure where to turn next. Replace cpu fan (and) or power supply?3 AnswersDesktops1 decade ago
I have an 02 Jeep GC with the stock 6x9's in the front doors. I am satisfied with the amount of mid bass these produce but want sharper better defined highs. If I replace the stock speaker with a 6.5" component set , would I hear a perceptible dropoff in lows, or am I better off just replacing them with a higher quality 6x9 coaxial speaker? I also plan on deadening and sealing the doors with Dynamat and using an Alpine 40x4 amp to power them. Thanks3 AnswersCar Audio1 decade ago
I am running 4 gauge wire for a new amp installation. After routing from the battery to the amp location I realized that it is about 2 feet too short. Is there a preferred way to lengthen or splice the wire safely? I was thinking about using a power dist block to add the extra 2 feet. Any ideas are welcome
My 02 Grand Cherokee is currently all stock with an Infinity amp. I want to upgrade the front door speakers and maybe the dash speakers. I'd like to try keeping the stock radio and repace the amp with an Alpine mrp-f240 4 channel 40 rms amp.
The front door openings fit a 6 x 9 speaker. Should I go with a full range aftermarket 6 x 9 or a 6 1/2" component set? I am looking for a full, clear sound with detail at moderate volume. I'm not about being able to vibrate the windows. I listen to mostly accoustical jazz and classical music (some rock). which would be a better choice. Also, is it ok to parallel wire the front channels with the dash tweeters without any impedence problems?
Also, any speaker recommendations based on my amp choice would be great!
I was thinking Pioneer or mb quart discus for the 6 x 9. Bostons for compenents.
I want to try to avoid getting a sub, but if the addition would be dramatic I might try it. thanks
I have an 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the Infinity 6 channel stereo. I was planning on going with an aftermarket headunit and swapping the door speakers with 6 x 9 2 way pioneers. My plan is this:
Using the internal amp in the new radio and bypassing the stock amp. RCA jacks running to the rear seat and butt splicing them into the existing speaker wires. I would also wire the 2 dash speakers in series by tapping into the front door speakers. This way I would have full range from all four speakers and have the 2 dash speakers still active. Is this a functional plan?
