        I suppose someone could go purchase a 2000 Grand Cherokee Ltd with the same stereo setup he/she has and test it.

        Anyone want to step up for the OP here?
        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
        How about the Wiki?

            if you know where 3/4 is, then just keep going another 1/4 and that is the full volume. and if it doesn't click, then how is anyone supposed to tell you how many clicks full volume is, and even if they did, how would you count the clicks if the radio doesn't do that?

            Not trying to make fun of you, but you are pretty much setting us up for it.

            Also, it may not matter but why would you need to know this?

              Thats easy. Just get into your car. Insert the key into the ignition and turn on the car. While the radio is on, put the radio at full volume (clockwise) thats 100% volume. If the radio doesnt have tactile clicks then you can mark the peak with a marker. Then count the number of rotations or clicks while reducing volume (conter-clockwise), untill you reach the point you are at 0% volume.
              I dont know why you guys are giving the OP such a hard time. I mean this is totally a legitimate question on a site dedicated to carPCs.

                The process for measuring this seemed so freaking obvious that I didn't bother to post it, but then again, what purpose is it going to benefit you to know where 100% volume is? If you listen to it at what you are thinking is 75% and won't ever turn it up past there, then that will now be considered 100%. Mark it and call it a day.

                    Thank you, I had not thought of that and for the folks that dont know why i wanted the radio 3/4, is because this is as far as you can cranck a radio with out getting much Clipping or no clipping at all.

                      not true, my radio can go up to 45 (out of 50, meaning 90%) and i still don't hear and clipping/noise (other than that from the bad speaker i have) once i get past that it does distort, but still not too much.

                        but there is a bigger chance after the 3/4 that it will.

                          wow, so the whole point of this thread is to ask someone where exactly 3/4 volume is so that you have a lesser chance of clipping?

                          How about this:
                          Turn the radio up until it starts to distort, and mark or note the position, this would be considered full volume, or the max that you will ever turn it up to (unless you upgrade amps, etc.) and turn it back down to your normal listening volume.

                          Clipping is only a problem if your deck can't handle the power it's trying to put out. If you have a good deck, turning it up to even 100% may not cause clipping, most stock radios aren't built that well though, and the easy way to know if it's clipping is to listen to it; when it starts not sounding right, then it's clipping or otherwise distorting, which can happen at even 15% volume (if something is broken inside the deck) so setting the 75% or 100% mark is futile and pointless. Just set the max that you would ever ever ever listen to it, mark it and turn it back to what you normally listen to it.

                            In addition to that: take music that puts out a strong signal (lots and deep bass). That way, if you listen to other music that ask less from your install, you're sure you are safe!

                              You know what sometimes the comments you make are so the reason why i asked was because i had allready removed the factory speakers and amp and had installed the aftermarket jl 300/4 and 500/1 and did not want to feed the midrange the wrong hz at the 3/4 mark but thank for the help.
