Hey guys,

First post... many many more to come. I have been a premium member on the past two forumz...

I just purchased a 2013 Express Black Edition

It has the ~ 2013 RAM 1500 UCONNECT® 5.0/RA2

I believe it is a non amplified/ basic system. My issue i dont understand why when i go any louder than about 28 it distorts out and its like it is cutting itself back to protect it like my 8.4N alpine system did in my charger.... but that was a a feature built into the ALPINE AMPLIFIER in my charger... My RAM does NOT have a factory amp.

So what my question is... Is it the speakers that are distorting out??? or the headunit keeping the audio levels adjusted to keep from blowing the speakers?? I am going to replace whatever necessary.

My other question is if i add an aftermarket headunit what happens to my uconnect menus built into the OEM radio? what all will be lost?
