Doing this build for a friend of mine. A while back I ran the power wire, RCAs, made a ground in the trunk, and installed the HU in a Honda Accord, but he ended up wrecking it. So he finally got a new car, and ended up with a Corolla. Reinstalled everything, and some new stuff. Still more to do when the sub shows up.
Hes not into car audio, but wanted something that would sound good, stay on a budget, and keep most trunk space. Also wanted everything to stay in stock locations and not really be visible from inside the cabin. First priority was the overall quality of the sound. Just looking for an upgrade in all areas from stock, and so far it sounds pretty good.
Radio: Pioneer DEH-P7200HD
Amplifier: Crescendo 1000C4
Components: Focal Polyglass 165VR
Subwoofer: Focal Polyglass 33 V1
Equipment that we already have from the last car.
Working on the radio install.
Got it all tied up. Looks pretty nice.
Started on the component installation. Heres what I saw when I took the panel off. Overall, the door prep and component install was definitely the most time consuming part of the install.
Vapor seal gone and speaker gone. It was riveted to the door, and was all one piece. No way to take it out except for drill the speaker out.
Did the same to the left door. Then started sealing and deadening the door.
