Re: 2013 Chevy Cruze
If it is an auto trans look under the dash for a metal plug plate where the clutch should be, unbolt it and then go unde the hood pry the metal retaining clips off the antifreeze tank then rotate the tank out of the way. Retrieve blank clutch play drill hole for power wire reverse direction for reinstallation. The trunk is solid so it takes a good bit to be loud. The door are just pop serts iirc just look for hidden screws. You will have to make a spacer plate for the speakers and possibly trunk the door card for them to fit right. Idk about this as I wrecked my Cruze before installing door speakers. For door deadening remember the bottle holder pushes into the door frame, I laid my deadener flat cut an x were the bottle holder was and put another sheet of deadener on the new pocket.
This car cannot run mor than 1200w the alternator turns off most if the time the engine is running so he will see 12.8v a lot unless he gets a new alt and regulator. Excessive amperage did tell me he could make a 200amp alt for it and provide a regulator for the new alt but pricey like 900-1k iirc
They have like 4 inches of styrofoam under the carpet so they have plenty of room for wires
WARNING do not remove back seats they are the biggest pain in the behind to put back in and it is unnecessary. They have plenty if room in the kick panels to hide modules or excess wire
I did well with an up fire ported box but the typical rear fire box should work great I just had an oddly shaped box that fit up against the seats floor to top. Ground close to the back seats but not under the back seats and use 1inch or less self taps as that is close to the fuel tank. I actually bolted under the spare tire but that created an awkward wire that was too long.
Any questions specifically just ask idk about the in dash install mine was factory integrated with an req5 but I have no prob trying my best to answer any question
