    FIAT 500, Audison, Alpine, JL, & Zapco

    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





    The bass control knob was mounted to the left of the steering wheel.

    Quarter panels, roof, and trunk all received deadening.





    We also had the headliner and visors wrapped in black suede





    After I was done with the install I took it to The SoundMan in Santa Clarita were Doug and Rafa took care of an input issue and then tuned the Bit Ten.

    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.
