A friend of mine was having some serious trouble with his 2000 mustang audio system. Randomly shut off and sometimes wouldn't have any sound at all. Come to find out the factory amp had been bypassed and multiple speakers wired in parallel to one speaker output. Multiple short runs of short speaker wire were used to make a full run as well causing shorts along the way. Decided the best thing to do was a complete rewire. Take a look.
Stuff that was removed
Everything is working well now and as it should after getting rid of improper wiring and shorts.
I have a few installs/details to update the thread with. First up a 2007 350z install and car detail.
The customer wanted to keep the factory look as much as possible while still giving him better sound quality.
Alpine type R Shallow sub
Alpine PDX-V9 5 channel amp
Focal 5 1/4 rears
Hertz HSK 165 fronts
Taped off the center console to prevent any scratching during install.
Head unit harness solder, heat shrunk, and zip tied.
Factory sub was removed
New sub test fitted
New speakers just barely have enough space to clear the door.
Amp installed in the rear glove box for maximum stealth.
Just detailed my car last weekend! Looks great man. Install work is excellent as well. I just re-did my buddies ride who had a 'professional' shop install it. They did the twist and tape method, no zip ties, no organization or anything. I redid all the wiring, soldered, heat shrunk, etc.
Glad to see other people take pride in the install process!
Get your remote start done the proper way. Installed a Compustar CS-800 today in a 2007 Hyundai Sonata today. All wiring was prepped ahead of time and twisted to lose slack.
Installed the brain behind the fuse box out of sight and away from everything. Than routed all wires to their locations.
All wires shortened and installed.
