Looking forward to seeing your build.
Exactly where it is going. Under the driver seat with the converter going on the spare tire compartment.

One more question for you, are you tapping into the factory speaker wires or running a new set to the doors? I'm dreading running new wires....I usually tap into the existing wires but rather not since the truck is leased.

thanks,

Tapping amp output for full range signal to lc7i to new amp, then running all new wires and leaving factory wires in place if I ever need to change back

Re: 12' Altitude Stereo Overhaul

Very nice selection. That should be a huge improvement.

And yes, it took me months to purchase everything. And still need the stealthbox but until I get that everything else is going in.

I feel your pain, the only equipment I'm reusing is my head unit. Still need to sell my old amp and speakers before buying new gear.

Moose is right, there isn't much space to install deadening mat. I've done this myself. The largest place would be under the spare/cargo area and the roof, but i doubt your going to do that. Not many people are foolish enough to take on the task of removing the headliner. It was one of those things i started and half way through thought, what the hell am i doing! But now I'm glad it's done.

Anyway, I'm very interested in how you retrofit those tweeters into the rear.

Thanks I will post. Fortunately I'm going into this with a plan of where and what I want to do with the wires and such. I just hope I don't run into any unforeseen issues.

Re: 12' Altitude Stereo Overhaul

I just got done installing:

165KRX2 Components
3Sixty.3
Center dash speaker
Stealthbox
Dynamat
Speaker wires to the door
JL XD400/4 and JL XD500/3 amps


Let me know if you have any questions and I will try to help if possible. Mine took me about 3 days to install, but it was a little each day.

how did you install the 6.75" components in the front? crutchfield says they don't fit. did you need a special bracket? if so which one?

Re: 12' Altitude Stereo Overhaul

Was it worth it to change that dash speaker instead of disconnecting it all together?
