JBL is still trunk mounted, but to get the JBL sound to work the best, the external sub will needed which fits in the rear where the two other speakers are located at. There has been a lot of opinions of which one is better, but you also should make sure you receive tweeters as well, they are very helpful with the sound quality.Does anyone have an opinion as to whether the Mach or JBL have any advantages over each other? And is the JBL still trunk mounted? I remember seeing something about the JBL being in the glovebox for some reason..
So you just tapped into the sub harness to get the output, but did you have that run through a separate amp though? How did you go about doing that?I prefer the JBL unit myself as i have on in my bull since it was easier to add in an aftermarket amp for a subwoofer. I just tapped into the harness for the factory sub rather than having to use a line out converter and the such.
X2. I second SHOMEX. JBL - JBL Speakers is the way to go. Mine is a factory combo. JBL + Mach speakers. I like it. Loud enough to shake the windows but not loud enough to blow my brains out. B)I like JBL better; it takes a little more work and money to retrofit but for me is well worthed. I wont use any of the factory jbl speakers though; only JBL RCU, JBL Sub and probably JBL Tweeters. (only for 96&97 cars)
For speakers I used Boston acoustic but any aftermarket speaker will give you better sound than any jbl or mach factory speaker.
