Default Premium Alpine Upgrade LC6I Full signal?

Hello all,
I have the premium alpine system and I am currently installing a lc6i for my two jl amps (jx360/4, jx1000/d) my question is where is everyone getting signals from? I have read many posts about summing front, rear and sub to get full range but I have also read front, centers and sub create a full signal? does anyone have any knowledge on this? any help would be greatly appreciated

The thread you showed me is from 2011. I've read multiple threads saying you can take them from the front, rear and sub but It also says in that thread you showed me to take the center, front and sub. . I want someone with personal experience to tell me where they summed their signals from. I'd rather be 100% prepared before I go testing and cutting into wires.

Let me try to save you some time, I have spent countless hours on this.

I assume you are speaking of the 10 speaker (including sub) Premium Alpine system in the 2013+ Rams.

Based on numerous voltage measurements of the speaker level outputs from the factory amp as well as RTA sweeps, I have found the following:

The front door, front dash, headliner tweeters and sub will yield the best results for a full signal. Others will tell you the front door, front dash and sub will work, it's close but the front dash starts to fall off a cliff at 16KHz and my tweeters sound distorted when I try this.

The LC8i would work best for this truck as it has 8 inputs. If you are stuck with 6, you can try to do without the headliner tweeters or try to do without the sub. Your choice, you will lose high end (~16Khz and above) or low end (below 45 Hz).

Good luck, this system is a nightmare to try to get a good clean full signal from.

You have one other option I should have mentioned, you can use the rear door speakers, headliner tweeters and sub to get very close to a full range signal only using 6 (or 5) inputs, but you will lose the voice nav and the front park sense tones.

If you don't use the voice nav or the park sense tones, this may be your best bet if your stuck with the LC6i.

Friggin nightmare on all the Chrysler/dodge/rams. I went all out and replaced everything, ran a mile of wires everywhere, and spent a lot of money on my 300. Now, I just replace the dash speakers when I get a new ride, and throw a sub in. I'm done re-engineering these sound systems.
