2008 Wrangler with Alpine ilx w650 call volume

Post by JKU207 » Tue Oct 22, 2019 5:35 pm

Just installed an Alpine ilx w650 in my 2008 Jeep Wrangler. Kept the factory amp. When making a call from apple play, caller and receiver volume is extremely low. I spoke with Alpine c/s and they said the front and rear speaker wiring needs to be reversed to resolve the problem. I wanted to check with here before proceeding as I assume this has been seen before. Using CH1 harness and Maestro RR. Music volume is fine. Green to green and white to white in harness. Just volume on calls that is not working. I have adjusted the call volume on the head unit to max without results. Thoughts?

the connectors in the amplified version do not get reversed, only in the non amplified versions. You can try switching them, but that likely wont fix your issue. Sounds like a radio issue. Make sure the radio's firmware is up to date, as they had several issues that were fixed from the initial release firmware.
