New Sound System

Postby npiper » Wed Aug 04, 2010 6:48 pm

Finally my sound system is done getting installed. I didn't do it myself, I chickened out and just decided to have Car Stereo One in Latrobe, PA do it. Great place. I highly recommend them. Took them 4 days for me to finally get it back but it was worth it.

Head Unit: Alpine CDA-9886
Was installed previously, but here's a picture anyways

Dash Speakers: Alpine SPS-406

Front Speakers: Alpine SPS-600

Rear Speakers: Alpine SPS-600

Amplifier: Alpine PDX-5
Installed on a custom amp rack they built over the jack mount. Also has a piece of the rear trim panel cut out that was heat molded and riveted to the side panel for a cleaner appearance at my request.
Image

Subwoofer: Rockford Fosgate P3L-S12
Mounted against the back of the cab, has rear trim piece from a regular cab S10 (same as ours) cut out so that the sub fits flush against the back.

Overall

It sounds as good as it looks too. :D
As of now, the rear seat will not lock but I'm going to shim the seat up with a few washers sometime in the next couple of days. Overall I'm very satisfied. :D

:D I agree. I only have the subwoofer level on 7 out of 15 and the bass on 0 and I'm still afraid to turn it up all the way :D

:lol: Yes it's a very big improvement. :D

Anyways, I finally got my rear seat to lock. I had to put 5 washers on each side of the seat and use a dremel to grind out the front two holes and make them oblong as well as remove the plastic bushings on the latch. I also have to shut it kind of hard but well that's what the grille is for and at least it latches now. :)

I'm glad too. My amp is only rated 300 RMS so the sub is actually underpowered but it's still ridiculous.
