Interested in these tires as well. How have they held up? Got any pictures you can share?
Quick update on this. Ended up with JL Audio C1 6x9 components in the front, and 6.5 coaxials in the rear. I left the dash speakers in place and mounted the tweeters flush on the door panel right behind the handle. Powered by the JL RD400/4 and left the stock head unit. Everything sounds amazing and no loud chimes to report just the same as before. EDIT: I did not do this myself my local shop did lol
Yea that's what he meant was to add the tweeters in under the dash. Would this be a wise thing to do in terms of overall sound? I've seen pictures of other set ups where the tweeter is custom installed on our trucks away from under the dash.
I want to get some help from the forum with my audio set up. I want to upgrade the factory non-bose speakers. I spoke to my local audio shop over the phone about replacing the speakers on all 4 doors. Then I asked about the dash speakers and he said yes, he can add tweeters there as well. I assumed the tweeter would be placed in a custom location (like sail panel or A piilar), and the dash would receive its own upgraded speaker. Am I on the right track with that set up? Or does it all really depend on the type of dash speaker I go with? Thanks.
Great thanks! I actually don't have the brake controller sorry forgot to mention that. I have the pocket there. So the entire aluminum/plastic piece comes off first, then you can remove the black piece?
Which panels and in what order did you have to remove to add the knob? Going to have your same bass setup installed this weekend and I want to explain to the shop how to add the knob just to be on the same page. Thanks!
Got it thanks man! I'm going with the LOC afterall as its a must now a days.
So according to the Crutchfield tech I won't be needing the processor since the JL 750/1 amp already has the high level inputs. So i'll just need the wire to RCA adapters to provide it with the audio signal https://www.crutchfield.com/p_136XDCLR2S/JL-Audio-XD-CLRAIC2-SW.html But the audio shop guy says that I do need a processor. What do you guys think?
I'm looking to install the JL Stealhbox under the reat seat with the recommended HD 750/1 amp.

Awesome man thanks for your input. I wanna add the LCi2 after I read the problem THIS user was having with his set up. There's other processors that I'm noticing so not sure if the LCi2 is even right for my application. This is the part I'm most confused about: https://www.audiocontrol.com/car-audio/factory-system-upgrade/ I'm actually looking at the under the rear seat box that is even more expensive. Just seems like this box is better form fitted to fit under the seats than all the other ones I've seen. Other ones have sharp corners that stick outside the seats or just don't look well made.
I'm going to be adding more bass to the stock system soon. I want to be sure of the components that I will need and also to be sure that the shop is not trying to oversell me on items. Here's the list that I have so far: JL Audio Stealthbox JL Audio HD 600/4 (shop's recomendation) Audio Control LCi2 Is there something else that should be added? He mentioned something about a processor as well. This is my first sound upgrade of any kind so please be gentle. Thanks!
I'm planning on running a very similar set up. What's the ballpark cost for something like this?
Since the factory, the air vent on the passengers side closest to the window has not been blowing air. I've never been able to have the dealer look at it until this week and I'm not convinced with the results. They told me that this is completely normal as it was done to direct more airflow to the center dash vents for the rear seat passengers. Below is the paperwork that was given to me. Now I understand reducing some airflow, but this vent is completely blocked. Maybe it's just me but I'm not understanding why this would be a good idea. I've never seen this in any other vehicle. Has anyone noticed this in their trucks too? Mine is a 2016 Sierra Crew Cab
I was in the same situation as you when I bought my 2014. Bought a double cab V6 in late 2014 because of the great offer they we're giving me. Never towed or hauled anything heavy with it but the truck was great for my needs. Had it for about 20k miles before I traded in for a V8 crew cab. Around town there really isn't a difference. With the 6 however you got much more engine noise inside the cab. MPG is the same you won't be seeing huge savings at the pump.
Thanks a lot for the detailed write up this is really helpful! Sucks about not being able to install the driver's side as easily. This is something I will take on pretty soon just need to order the chrome hooks. Will update this topic as soon as I have it finished.
