    Ford Escort Install

    I've been slowly working on this install for awhile, and just finished it up this morning. So here we go.

    Headunit: Kenwood KDC-MP5028


    Electrical: Kicker 1/0 Hyperflex, Big Three Done, Red Top


    Components: Kicker RS65.2 (Still need to clean up the wiring)


    Subwoofers: 2 x 12 Kicker CVR D4, Sealed Blowthrough


    Amplifier: Rockford Fosgate Power1000 25-To-Life, Running 125 watts to the components and 950 watts to the subs.



    Amp Rack: False Trunk Back


    Very happy to have it all done finally, and sounds a lot better than I was hoping for. What do you guys think?

    The door panels are rather small, but the xover is rather big at the same time. Luckally, they do not stick out too far, I have yet to hit them with my legs. They will not stick out once I redo my door panels. When I'm all done, the door panels will be black, so they will blend in much better.

    Re: Ford Escort Install

    Looks pretty good, only thing I would say is those x-overs do seem out of place just on the doors like that, but otherwise there is really nothing that isn't nice and clean about your install. Trunk certainly looks very nice. Wiring is nice and clean too, Hyperflex sure is nice stuff ain't it.

    Re: Ford Escort Install

    Thanks for all the comments guys. It sounds great. I am going to try to hide the xovers somewhere.

    Edit: I forgot to add, my doors are completely deadened and sealed.
