Would this be the same for a 17' Latitude edition with the standard 5 inch radio?

Sorry I missed this. The line out convertor had the remote wire.

I can't say. I believe there were some changes on your system that will allow you guys to be cast play and Android auto capable and this may have changed some wires.

calibration

I wonder if the sub-woofer speaker connector is present on all models in the passenger side trunk area. If so could use this harness to tap into it maybe. Problem is it's most likely has a low pass filter on it which may not go very low. Which will obviously impact your subs performance with deep bass. would be super easy however.

Sub Location

I have the 2015 Limited and am trying to figure a good spot for the sub. I don't want to cut/modify any of the interior or be able to tell it even has a sub in there. I think the spare tire area is a perfect place for it. In my model, no spare tire is present. just the air compressor with the sealing foam.

Seems the Styrofoam liner in the spare tire area just pulls out once the compressor is removed (can put that under passenger seat). After some looking, I found a box which seemingly will fit in there perfectly. Also has an area for amps. I already ha ve a 10" Kicker CVX10 10" woofer (600-1200 watt). Should be plenty for my needs.
Box is .8 CUft

No spare? Well then that's a great spot. I have thought about making one for mine but decided against it. Just doesn't feel right to take out the spare. But it's sure tempting.

line out

Getting audio signal: If adding in any amplifiers, you will need to get one of these converters (LC7I or LC2i). it basically takes the signal from the highs/mids/lows and sums them into one workable channel that gets fed to amps. Will work on the amplified system or standard 6 speaker Cherokee (lc7i if you want more channels).
I plan on taking the front dash speaker outputs and the rear door speaker outputs and stuff them into the Lc7i. This should combine close to full range of sound. The Lc7i fills in the missing low bass frequency via the AccuBass control knob. I then plan on sending the rca's from that to amps which will power the new door and dash speakers. Then another for a mono amp for sub.

If you have the alpine premium system the better option would be to use a PAC AP4-CH41. This thing will basically take the digital signal on the cars BUS system via plug and play harness. but is pricey.

Audiocontrol LC7i (for 6 speaker or premium alpine setups)

I could not say. Above my pay grade. My experience with sound systems says yes. If you have full signal output from anywhere you should be able to add what you want.
