Default Another Kicker question

I have a 2012 CC with the base sound system and factory Uconnect 430N. I upgraded to the Kicker 4pc front speaker and 2pc rear speaker Mopar kits. I was looking at adding the Kicker 368watt 12 channel amp to get a little more out of the speakers. I'm no audio expert so a plug and play system is the route I'll be going before anyone suggest getting an aftermarket amp.
I read the instructions and to sum them up:
1) unbolt
2) unplug
3) remove
4) replace with new unit
5) plug in
6) bolt up
I went and looked under my dash and found the location is says the stock amplifier should be and there's no amp. Are the amp kits not plug and play for base systems or am I missing something?

Are you reading the stock Alpine instructions? The Kicker 4.1 is more than an amp, it has built in time delays and a DSP, whcih you would have to purchase, and a LOC, etc to power the door speakers.
The base audio kit amp can be added plug and play. If you run into any install issues, call 405-624-8510 and ask for technical, M-F 8-5pm CT.
But I know a 20 year old kid installed the powered sub in 20 minutes on a 2013 QC.

Not sure why you would add a 12 chan amp to a 6 speaker system. Are you running a couple of subs as well. Like graygoose said you will need a LOC, so you can control front and rear

I looked at the sub kit but haven't decided on it yet. I was looking at the amp kit I have posted, The instructions are the only ones I was able to find, they don't state if its for the alpine system or not.
I was just hoping I could add a plug n play amp to the speakers really. But if its not plug n play its probably not in the cards for me

I actually found a link on EBay, the base system does not have an amp and the kicker amp is added via a longer list of instructions. Thanks for the responses, wish I had checked EBay first lol

You need the 77KICK43 for the base audio upgrade, thats plug and play.
You wont need a LOC if you use the Kicker 4.1, only if you do aftermarket amp.

77KICK45 is the 12 channel, Alpine replacement.

Yup, that's the one I found. Ordered it, hopefully it'll bring out a little more sound.
Thanks again

Let us know how it goes. I am looking into this as well for my CC. Looking to add the sub at a later date as funds allow.
