I wanted to upgrade my stereo in my 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel. I have the six-speaker base system with an 8.4 uConnect. My first challenge was disabling the Active Noise Canceling (ANC). Due to the broader sound range of my speakers, the ANC soundwaves were now a loud bass drone. I have a video on my YouTube channel that goes into detail on this. Click for video
Speakers only I started with a set of Infinity Reference Series speakers. 6×9 3-way speakers in the doors and 3.5” speakers in the dash. This upgrade cost $310.00 since the dash speakers were on sale. The upgrade brought instant satisfaction with deeper bass, crisp, clear highs, and a much louder clean sound.
I chose the AudioControl D-series amplifiers because they had a high-level input, a DSP, and AC is a rock-solid performer in the car audio space. This amplifier cost $770 and was worth every penny easily tripled my volume, with clean highs and deep bass from the upgraded infinity speakers.
I went with the Infinity Baslink SM2, which added more bass and rounded out the sound, but I’m still not sure it’s going to satisfy my ear. I’ll keep you posted on this one as I work on tuning my system with this micro sub.
Testing the Autowit SuperCap 2 on my brother in law’s jeep. His car has a charging system issue, and his battery is always dead. As you can see, it was at 8.2 volts when we started. The Autowit SuperCap 2 took 5 minutes to charge from the 8.2-volt battery fully, and it started the car without a struggle.
A lighting controller is more on the expensive side, but it eliminates the hassle of wiring up relays fuses and with a wireless controller you don’t have to pass wiring through the firewall for switches.
I picked up the Trigger 4 Plus which allows for a total of 4 lights 2 at 10 amps and 2 at 30 amps. the switch pod is wireless so you can cary it in your pocket and mount it in the cab with a magnetic base. If you need more lighting you can group multile trigger controllers together or grab the Trigger six shooter
The brackets are from zRoadz and these Zroadz ditch light Brackets are specially made for the 2019-2021 Ram 1500 Rebel . For my ditch lighting I used the Auxbeam 4″ amber pod lights which do a very good job lighting up to roadside and the Amber color provides less reflection in dusty, foggy and snowy situations.
