Sorry buddy!!! My US vendor had stock when we were discussing the topic. But right now it seems there is no stock... So I will update you the price once its available. Plus the shipping from US is delayed due to the ash cloud.

Okay, Here is the reason why i wasnt interested in importing this product as
1) I will not get my dealer privileged pricing (Only a 10% reduction in the online price)
2) Shipping price might cost more than the product price itself.

So Here it goes, AED 450

Please confirm if you are interested.

Sorry buddy, If you can arrange a group buy the price per piece can be even lowered as the shipping price to import from US reduces. And believe me when i say, this deal of no margin to us. I am just doing it as a favor to a good member of the forum as a good will....

ThankYou for the effort, I'll place an order on souq soon for the 4 ohm.
Meanwhile, I was thinking about revamping the whole system. Do you have Kicker DS460 and DS5250? If yes then pricing?
I was thinking of getting a Kenwood KDC-138 HU, will it work with the DS460, DS5250 and the CVT 6.5? (I know its a noob question)
If it will, I will need a frame to convert the 1.5 din factory space to house a single din, where can I find that? Plus might also need a wiring harness to use the HU with stock wiring.

There is no noob question.
I dont have the DS 460 or the DS 5250, but i can lay my hands on DS 5250 which would be around AED 170.
But why do you need these weird size?
The car comes with 4x6 in the front and 6.5 in the rear top as far as i know. For the newer cars the 6 inch or 6.5 inch fits the front with a 1 inch tweeter.

The Head unit will work fine with the speakers except the CVT6.5 which should be powered.

Now let me start from scratch since i am confused by the word revamp.
You Jeep must having factory headunit connected to the inbuilt amplifier, right?
In that case changing the HU to kenwood would pose some issues. You really cant integrate the HU to work with the inbuilt amp in the car. (Not 100% sure though)
Then either you will have to power the speakers from the HU directly or use an amplifier.
The subwoofer will require separate amplifier for sure.

Finally you amplifying options.
1) Use a amplified solution for speakers and Subwoofer
2) Use HU amp to power the speakers and separate amp only for the sub.

Regarding the HU space, its not exactly 2 din, its more like 1 and half din which will require a dash kit. You gotta see if its available in UAE. Else I can import that one for you.

My Jeep houses 4x6" in the front and 5.25" for the sound bar and a 6.5 inch subwoofer.
Neo wrote:The Head unit will work fine with the speakers except the CVT6.5 which should be powered.
So will the CVT 6.5 work with the stock HU? (this is what I was planning before, just change the subwoofer and that's it)

2) Use HU amp to power the speakers and separate amp only for the sub.
If I'm correct, I'll need a mono amp if I choose to only amplify the subwoofer and that would be cheaper than amplifying the whole setup?

Do you mean the sound bar in the top. The plastic part that houses the speakers.
Those accommodate 6.5 inch speakers. Even 6 inches would create a gap.

Thats an earthquake 6.5 inch on the Jeep Rubicon that we installed few months back. Perfect Fit.

Hey For the Kicker CVT65 you can use the Kenwood 350 watts 2 channel amp. ITs around AED 200 and will serve the purpose.
