How to tell?

Hey guys, dumb question. Just bought my 2006 Commander and I have no clue what sound system it has in it, how can I find out. It sounds pretty good with the bass even up to 4 and volume at 20 so I'm thinking it can't be just the stock...

How can I figure out what I have? Thanks!

What model Commander do you have? What other equipment do you have? Based on the options, it can be easy to tell. The upgraded system is call BA (Boston Accustics) which only added a 276w amp, and upgraded paper speakers. I do not know if it was standard with the Nav radio, but it was an option with the other 2 available radios - single disc and 6 disc. So, you really can't tell just by looking at the radio. It was a stand alone option, but was included in some of the packages. So, based on what you tell us as to how your Jeep is equipped, we can give you an answer.

Build sheet: good idea. I'll ask for that when I go make my down payment.

As far as options, I have power everything, cruise, single CD player, no sunroof, don't have the tow package, I guess I really don't have that much. But coming from a base vehicle with NOTHING (not even tilt wheel) it seems like I have a lot!

It's got the quadri drive thing, ESP, (don't know of those are stock or not).

Don't have the NAV radio or anyhing, no radio controls on the wheel.

the radio controls are on the back side of the wheel. You might have them. I knew someone who never knew they had controls until i showed them.

But buying it used a previous owner could have changed the head unit.

Yeah they might have but it's unlikely. I'm going to go out and look behind the wheel and then I'm going to see if they gave me a build sheet by any chance...

Where would the amp be if I had one? Under the middle seats? In the back drivers side panel?

Look under the knob on the right hand side of the unit. There should be three letters that are the model designation.

If your single disc head unit has a port to plug in a I-Pod or other device, I am confident you have the base system.
