    So I just got a 2020 CrewMax 4WD last week; and I absolutely love it, even the Entune system. Yeah, I know there have been issues with it, but I

    **GUARANTEE**

    they were not as bad as the Sync 1 4.2" system in 2013 F150. LOL

    Anyways, unless it ever gives me reason to, I'd actually like to keep the head unit stock, and simply amp the speakers to begin with. (New speakers, and possibly sub, to come in the future.) As such, can anyone recommend a decent amp I can have installed to improve the sound coming from the speakers? It's not crap by any means, but obviously it can be improved.

    I appreciate it - thankfully, the KTP-445U is what I had in mind in the past for other vehicles, and it looks as if it'll work here as well.

    Side question: What's the box under the passenger seat - is that an OEM amp?

    In case you aren't aware (I wasn't for a couple months), when you set the mixer for the JBL system (and maybe non-JBL), you set it for each input. You'll have sliders for bluetooth, radio, sat radio, CD, etc. I got so frustrated because my sound was inconsistent and eventually figured that out.

    The JBL sounds great, but the low end is underpowered. I'll likely never bother with it, but a lot of people (probably in the links posted before me) have made them great.

    Thanks for that, although I don't have the JBL system. Now I just need to know if the non-JBL system is like that.
