    Re: Alpine Premium 2017 Mega Laramie

    I did a lot of research on this recently to figure out how to do exactly what your're asking. I wanted to keep the factory unit since everything runs through it but i wanted to power the mids and highs separate from the subs.

    Do some research on the PAC Amp Pro and the wiring harness for it. There are a lot of YouTube videos on these too. It basically plugs inline and gives you low level inputs you can run to an external amplifier (or multiple amplifiers if you want to power the front doors, dash, rear doors, and subs separately like i wanted to do). Long story short it can be done and it can be done without having to cut any wires but its not cheap. At this point i've not spend any money on it yet, just been going through the process of figuring out what i want and how i'd lay it all out.

    If you do go the speaker replacement route pay attention to the impedance (ohms) level of the speakers like was stated above. Going from a 2ohm to a 4ohm double the impedance and thus doubles the power requirement for the same decibel level. So you can end up with a nice new set of speakers and not get that volume you're looking for.

    That's where the external amplifiers come into play.

    Update. Went with the Rockford fosgate DSR1 with the Ram T harness. Basically it replaces the factory amp with all the data links. Plugs and play. Couldn’t have been easier. Use factory speaker wire for the 3 dash speakers, the 4 doors and the headliner tweets. I did Alpine type R 6x9 components in the front doors &6x9 coaxial in the rear doors. Replaced all 3 3.5 mids also and the headliner tweets. I had Subthump make me a sub enclosure that fit down in the buckets behind my back seat and in the megacab part. 4 American bass XFL 10’s at 1000watt RMS. SEATS EVEN RECLINE!!!! 2 amps one DS18 5000 mono and a DS18 1500 4 channel. And it sounds f....... amazing.

    What is the T harness that you are talking about and where can I get it.

    I have a 2012 2500 Limited I am working with.

    Thanks for your help.
