So the hk don't have enough bang? I like the choices you picked. Do you think the 8 inch is a better fit then the ten? As far as the amp I'm looking to hide that in the same left compartment. I just need an amp that accepts high inputs so I can tap right in from a rear door speaker. 8 or 10 hmm.

I'm confused a bit as to your terminology....high inputs are line level or speaker level ? And don't you think the H/K amp has a separate sub out that would be preferable to that for the rear door speaker ?

JL is about 3 miles from my home....and we are a JL dealer.
I could ask for advice...tho not keen on them using MY ML as science project.

I don't have hk system. That's why I need to tap into wires from one of my speakers to either an RCA converter or directly to an amp. And after measuring the space I'm leaning towards an 8 inch sub. By the way what's size is hk sub, and does anyone know if there is a center speaker in the dashboard on a stock radio? I see the grate but can't tell if sound is coming from there??

HK sub is 8 inch and is in an enclosure on the left side of the trunk wall. Where are you planning to install the amp and get the power from?

Anyone know if it's possible to buy the hk enclosure from dealer? Would make install a little easier. And I was looking to power amp from the battery and put amp under driver seat or where spare tire is located

Speaker enclosure should be orderable, though you might have to wait a while for it given the initial shortage seen on some parts.

Just bought a 2015 ML250 and base stereo. Wanted to see if anyone has successfully added a small subwoofer to the system? If so, please share. Placement of subwoofer/amplifier. Where did you tap into the existing system to connect amplifier? Any help would be great. Need some Bass....

Have upgraded audio

Have 2015 ML250 with base audio--NO HK. Have upgraded the door speakers & amplifier.

Speakers (6 1/2" ) are HERTZ--rated @ 100 watts each. $500 total

Amp 400 watt ALPINE. $400

Bought the above on line for about $950

Had 4 doors covered with HUSHMAT Elite. $250

Had audio shop (high end) do install. No change in appearence-looks stock. Took installer about 16 hrs labor plus another $400 in misc parts. No subwoofer in my case. Was able to get all the base I wanted. Also need to mention that there is some time involved to properly "balance" the new system.

This is no job for an amateur if you want the results I got. I can turn the volume higher than I will ever want and there is NO distortion! Have LIFETIME GUARANTY on the installation.

Finally My backround is electronics & audio. The prices that I quoted I got by buying wholesale Online. You can get an improvement in just a good upgrade in speakers but the amp really needs a GOOD upgrade as it feeds the speakers. Remember GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT.

Awesome. Thanks. I tried to go to Crutchfield but they did not have any data. Are the front door speakers 6.5 Components and the rear door speakers coaxial? Is there a speaker in the middle dash or is that just a placeholder for the HK system? Where did you put your amp?


Thanks,


Rich

Thanks,

Yes. Front-Component-tweeters in "A" pillar. Rear-Co-ax. From what we could determine front dash speaker is for COMAND audio only. Placed Amp @ drivers/rear wheel behind carpet. Believe slightly behind wheel. There was enough room there. Everything looks stock. Amp size needs to be compact. Alpine PDX-F4
Purchased above from WoofersEtc.com---- Jim

ok
