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.
Any pictures??

I made my own 1/2 inch adapters out of MDF, sealed with Miniwax wood hardner and painted black. They fit fine, plenty of room.

I'm still playing with it. I do like having the center as it allows me to have a decent tune for both the driver and passenger. Typically I would tune and do time alignment for the driver which makes the passenger seat awful.

AMP 1 and 3sixty.3

Amp 2 under drivers side rear seat - no clearance issues. Mounted on edge of plastic.

Tweeters - I painted them to match the factory black instead of the original silver.

Re: 12' Altitude Stereo Overhaul

Thanks for the pictures. By the way, with regards to the amp under the rear seat, can you fold the seat? I would think that having the amp there would prevent the seat from folding.

Good point, I still have the LO Converter and amp under the rear seats, and they do NOT fold flat. The rear seats shift forward and down so take note to put thegear far enough forward, or perhaps use alt locations as shown above or under the front seats.

Yes, no clearance issues and room to spare. If you push the amp all the way in, there are, because it causes the back part of the amp to rise up. I have the front mounted on the plastic trim, which causes the back to slant down.

Progress from day one. Interior out, and all speaker have new wire runs and RCA cables run. Should be finished tonight but for now here are some shots....

Tearing the interior out was kind of easy. Tool maybe 2 hours total. Running the new speaker wire took some finagling but its all in.
