Here is my long time friend's new Fiat 500 she recently purchased. She was happy with the factory headunit with the Bluetooth but the rest of the system needed to go.
I did this install over a four month period when I had free time.

Audison Bit Ten
JLHD 900/5
Zapco RH-16.2 6.5" Reference-active
ALPINE SWR-1042D

I was waitng for someone to ask that:)

I had an extra Type R from a job. I gave it to her for free. Trying to get her to purchase an IDQ.

I built the enclosure with an oversized speaker ring to accomodate another manufature's 10". You can see that in the pic with the grill off.

That is a clean install. That should sound very good in that small car. I had one as a rental a few months back and was very surprised how solid the car was even being a go cart. The backseat is worthless and the trunk was good for my carry-on and a backpack. I am also glad to see a shop that actually has a RTA and can tune. Ask that of any shop around me and they look at you like you have 3 heads.
