Looks like amp to me..

----------

Oh, just read the replies

Rangers had "premium sound" option?

What came with said sound system other than the amp? any fancy speakers?

Thumbs down Re: Black box behind passenger seat?

nah... Usually just marketing gimmickry like Pioneer Premium beaucoup watts sound system or some other crock of shiz. It's a stock sound system. They all suck, compared to a custom install.

Your best bet for better sound would be to buy 4 new speakers, a aftermarket head unit and a four channel amp. And install every thing new. That way you know what's going on with it.
