Power Output RA2 vs RA4

I was just thinking about it today. It seems like the audio has alot more power behind it since I installed the RA4 radio. Does it have an internal amp?

I believe both the RA3 and the RA4 have an internal amplifier. (The speaker upgrades have an external amplifier for 9 spkr and sub).
Yes, I have noticed a major major increase in audio quality between Cherokees with the 5.0 screen vs the 8.4 screen.
