If its the Alpine sistem it should be the 506W 9 Speaker system, thats what my SXT Plus has, nice system IMHO. I dont recall the standard system being branded Alpine. If you orderd it and didnt get it, then the dealer should fix it for you...
Just go for the gusto and get an aftermarket radio,stock sound usually sucks,the speakers are cheesy!I put an L7 kicker in my stock sub location and a kenwood dnx-9980 two amps,the thing rocks.
If it doesnt hit hard replace the sub and subwoofer.
If its not clear you need to update the tweeters.
But overall a system is the best way to get good sound.Stock is WIMPY.
Just as a follow up to anyone else in the same situation.
While the back half of the wiring harness look to be the same across all vehicles, the front half is not. At least, not when it comes to audio wiring. The C2 connector itself at the amp is the same, but is missing many of the wiring and pins in that connector for the larger speaker systems. Mine only has 6 pins connected while the connector itself can hold 16 pins.
Consulting with ShopKey and having them send more wiring diagrams, there are different harness part numbers that connect to the amp, and they are not easily swappable as they are wrapped into the main harness. It looks like you could splice in the pins and connector the mid-body harness connector on the passenger side. It is not worth it to me since it requires pulling out trim and carpet to reach it.
I've gone with just dropping in Infinity 692.9i speakers and the doors and rear deck, leaving the dash speakers as-in. Sounds much better and it will do fine.
