    Re: My modest, average joe, install (56K good luck).

    Not a whole lot to go over but I thought I'd update a little bit. I've been pretty busy with other projects, I got a whim to install Caddy lights in my truck so I've been preoccupied with this as well.


    Here's a pic of the 660GTi's installed behind the factory Bose grilles. Those wave guides were a tight fit. Tough to see but that's how I wanted it.


    Alpine W404 is installed. To the right is where I mounted the bass control knob for the Sundown. Yup. the MTX's are gone.



    I left the factory mic installed and just mounted the new Parrot BT one right above it. Works great there with no issues.


    Here's a couple shots of test fitting the box. A lot of angles here to maximize as much airspace as possible. I decided against running both RE sub's and have opted for just one instead. Seat will be raised 2" to clear. Sub box is right at 1.0cf. I am also building a custom amp rack to house the JBL crossover and Arc amp under the seat.



    Speaking of Arc.


    I decided to rewire some things behind the seat. I wanted to get the audio portion as far away from the power supply as possible. I also placed the mat back behind the mounting board instead of a direct mount to the back wall.

    Thanks. It has it's pro's and con's. I'm hoping for an update as the UI isn't that friendly and it suffers from being a little sluggish from time to time. It's a little redundant as far as the touch screen go's as well. Everything you can do with the touch screen can be done directly below the screen via a hard button. The Parrot BT is a huge step up though in quality and performance. I actually don't mind talking on the phone now when I'm driving.

    Starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel. Spent all day today building a box, and mounting the amp's. All that's left is to finish wiring, tune the Imprint, and reinstall the seat with the new brackets.

    I have no idea, lol. I haven't had a chance to test it yet. I figure as soon as I got it hooked up I wouldn't be as motivated to get it finished.
