bout time!

rear Pioneer 6x9 and front Pioneer 4s.
TS-G971M and TS-G1042R if you really want specs.

only took pics of the front before the dash pad went back on cause that''s the only "interesting" part.

Here''''s the rigs. couldn''t find any 4 inch grills, so I built some. The capacitors are set up to total about 132uF for bass blocking. I put 415uF caps on the rear speakers for ultra low bass protection. I may modify that in the future.


Here''s the left installed...


And the right...


and it sounds great. the rear just snugged up to the rear deck using the factory rubber bands. I may put some weatherstripping around the hole later to prevent vibration, but it was too windy and cold out that day and I couldn''t get a good angle to see what the heck I was doing.Edited by: slymer

not bad work.... here are some pics of my Crown Vic i used to have and work i did... the led red lights close to shifter were to operate the speaker lights on back dash, door speaker lights, and for the gauges under ash tray. and the custom blue cloth with white leather seats were removed from the car before i got rid of it to install in another car i have here.

I''m hoping to get the sub purchased and installed before too long. I''ll also post pics later (once I remember to take the pictures) of the dash installed on top of the speakers. and I''m seriously considering one of those ABS plastic dash covers since the speaker holes are now complete holes and the dash is brittle as hell.

ok... here''s pics of the finished install.

Dash:


Close up on the button and LED. (momentary button for manual turn-on and automatic shut-off whenever the car/stereo are turned off.)


The speaker: (same in both boxes)


Left side of trunk:


Right side of trunk:


Personally I think it''s nice and clean. The amp is BOLTED [img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img] down under the passenger seat. The sound is nice and balanced using the stage 1 bass boost on the amp. (it has 3 settings: off, 6db boost, 12db boost)

Replaced the 4-inchers in the dash with 6.5 inchers in the doors.

Here's the pics...

looks pretty good ive got 2 5 by 7 s way memphis speakers in the front and 2 6 by 9 3 way memphis speakers in the back and i have 2 15in memphis power reference subwoofers in the trunk powered by a class d coustic competition amp and i have a fareinheit 7in flip up dvd cd player with blutooth and navigation and and the works... ive had previos sound sytems and they were decent but this one has by far blown them out of the water... the subs hit really hard but the speakers are really loud so the subs dont drown out the music... im a firm believer in memphis and i doubt ill ever change....

yeah... I over trimmed the carpet on the passenger door a bit, but got it perfect on the driver door. I'm not real intent on decking this car out unless I end up getting a windfall of money to play with. Then I'll get it tally fixed up and really play with it (probably jack it up and convert it to 4x4, put some 30 inch tires on it with bead locker rims, drop in a boss 302 and maybe use an f150 frame for the jacking up part to be able to mount some nice bumpers under it all. but I have strange dreams of conversation starters and sleepers.

i bet that would look good... the only reason i put so much money in mine is because it only has 53000 miles on it and its a decent car...
