In this short Crutchfield video we’re borrowing
a coworker’s Jeep to show you how easy it is to install the Alpine KTP-445 Power Pack.
The Power Pack is an add-on, 45-watts per channel amplifier module that works with Alpine
stereos. Installing the Power Pack is really simple.
It connects between the stereo and the original Alpine wiring harness. First you’ll have to
remove your stereo from the dash. Carefully pull off the trim ring as we’ve done here
and use the removal tools that came with your stereo to release the locking clips on the
sides. Then pull out the stereo and carefully unplug the wires and set it aside. Next find a place to mount the Power Pack
behind your dash. Alpine made the wires long enough to reach the stereo from just about
anywhere in the dash. In our case, we were easily able to stick the Power Pack right
behind the Jeep’s glove box. Now it’s time to hook it up. Plug one end
of the Power Pack’s wires into the harness that’s already connected to your cars wiring,
then grab the stereo and plug the other connector from the Power Pack into the back of it. One
nice thing is that the plugs only fit one way and that makes it easy to get right. Now carefully re-install your stereo and guess
what? You’ve more than doubled the power in your Alpine stereo without the extra work
of installing an outboard amp and that extra power will bring out musical details you weren’t
hearing before. You can learn more about the Alpine Power Pack at crutchfield.com/KTP445
