Thanks! There are some good photos there. A number of members should find them handy when wanting a visual things without having to pull off panels... myself included.

Re: 2014 speaker upgrade

Nice, clean removal and install job you did there. Better than a lot of installers do themselves. Most aren't as 'gentle' for a lack of better words.

Most installers don't care about being gentle because its not their car,it's hard to find some that do give that special touch.

Good luck.

Thanks for the photos.

Aside from the MS-8 install I'm adding an amp for the subwoofer, sub enclosure reinforcement and 6.5" components for the front doors. Everything else will be stock (for the time being) and can be run from the MS-8.
Hi Radnight, have you fitted the MS-8 yet? I'm wondering how it went...

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 2014 speaker upgrade

I ended up cancelling the order for the Granite SRT with Stock System and bought an in stock White SRT fully loaded with the H/K system so I won't be needing the MS-8. Still going to tighten up that subwoofer box and maybe replace those 6x9's in the doors but not just yet.

If anyone is interested, I'm selling a brand spankin' new MS-8 at cost plus shipping

Re: 2014 speaker upgrade

Ooops... I read that somewhere, sorry

I'm pretty set on installing one as I have plenty of "good" components around including Hertz, Eclipse, and a small batch brand called Studio Driver brought in by Audio Art and Technology (Perth). I figure the MS-8 is the best way to clean up the OEM cluster-f*#k and provide a reasonable tune, especially at the price point. I've got Audison and Alpine amps on hand if required, so the only other bit I'll need is a 3.5" centre and a sub. The latter will be an incremental noodling project for interest.

Amazon can ship the MS-8 here quite cheap, but if you want to price yours with freight to Perth I'd be happy to consider it as an alternative.

Cheers,
Steve
