My truck has the Entune Audio Plus w/out JBL.
I have a Kenwood DNX9980HD out of my old truck and will be adding that to my 2014 DCLB as soon as they come out with the no splice harness adapters, and at this rate it could be awhile, no one seems to be putting them together for the 14s. I have no intention of cutting my factory harnesses. So, I want to purchase everything else and install what I can in the meantime.
I imagine that most everything is the same as the 2013 except the back-up cam is now displayed in the HU. Does anyone know how this changed the HU wiring/harness connections?
I would really like to buy a plug-&-play speaker kit, something known to fit well and sound good. Is there a known good alternative? I know TacoTunes does have front and rear speaker kits but I am not familiar with the speaker mfr so I am hesitant to go that route, but the plastic mounting plates look good!
My intent is to use the factory wiring and just replace the speakers. In the past I have been partial to JBL and Boston Acoustics speakers and I still consider them a premium choice but I know things move on...their product prices have quite a wide range on Amazon, so I'm not really sure.
I do not want to remove the factory storage or modify it appreciably but a small self-powered sub behind the passenger rear seat would be perfect because the baby seat is there and I can't easily move that so that storage area is never accessed and won't be for a few years...perfect place for the sub, if there is one that will fit there, too bad I didn't get the factory JBL system, at least the sub would be perfect for my needs...
I have no intention of having an amp, if I can at all help it, I didn't have one for this HU in my Dodge MegaCab and it had great sound, just no sub...
I want to retain the steering wheel controls, BU cam, and the USB connector that is below the factory HU. I just don't want a tangled mess of hacked up harnesses.
You audio gurus, please step forward if you can!
I have searched and read, so I have seen many topics similar to mine, if I have irritated some of the masses, I apologize! I just want to get my system right the first time...
