Replaced my two year old Pioneer Premier HU after the volume became shotty. Installed Alpine 138BT. Added Alpine MRP-F300 4 channel amp to existing 6.5 JL Audio door speakers and Memphis Audio 6x9s. Added an Infinity BassLink 10" powered sub.
Very happy with all of the equipment. The Memphis Audio 6x9s are the most surprising. The BassLink is also very surprising.
I have a few pics but none from the install. I have to rewire the amp power wire and run a new remote wire. I'm not happy at all with the cheap one that was attached to the RCA. (Honestly, I'm not sure that was supposed to be used to turn on the amp.)
Two trouble areas for me were the doors. I ran new wires to the door speakers from the amps and had a hard time getting the wire through the rubber gromets. The next trouble area is routing the wires into the trunk form the back seat.
#1 . replace the batter connector, reroute the power wire, route wires better into trunk.
#2 . Add tweeters to A pillar
#3 . Maybe add component speakers to kick panels.
your thoughts welcome.
