just put the focals in front and back and tweeters in last night. I have the 6 speaker in my 15 altitude. What a difference in sound. Defiantly worth the money 👍🏻👍🏻

I couldn't believe how cheap the stock speakers were. I have the 6 speaker system not the 9. I don't have a center speaker I don't think. never took notice. Great write you did. Helped me out a lot Just had a hard time getting the trim piece back into the lip what the tweeter sits in around top of the door frame. Very happy with these speakers.

Re: Focals ISS 690, ISC 165 & Polk db351 install tutorial with pics

maybe hour an half. couldn't find a wire diagram anywhere to know which wire was + and - so ended up using a D battery to rest polarity. easy to pull the door panels off. like I said before only had a little hard time getting the trim back under the lip around the top of the door frames on the front doors

How is the bass response? In comparison to the stock set up

I find stock six speaker has a little too much bass. I turn it down three bars. The kids however like to see the mirrors rattle!

Re: Focals ISS 690, ISC 165 & Polk db351 install tutorial with pics

I installed infinity's all the way around (minus sub and the tweeters in the back).

I am by no means an audio expert, but the bass is sooooo much cleaner. My side mirrors rattle more than the stock, but I don't feel like there is much more bass. It's just 100% more clear. I also hear the higher bass notes and it makes the experience so much better.

The front tweeters and center channel made the biggest difference. I like loud music, so I consistently had the stock speakers around 28 when I was by myself. Now I stay in the 16-18 range. I turned it up to 28 once just to see and it was unbearably loud, as in my ears were ringing after it.

It took some time to break in, but now I see there is so much sound that was missing with the stock speakers

I would say the speakers that had the most affect in order were: front tweeters>center channel>front door speakers>rear door speakers.

I got compliments on the stock system every once and awhile, but now I get compliments on the sound every time someone rides with me.

I would also say I broke about 6 clips on the first door I put back on, but it is still sturdy and sits just as flush as before.

I found the best strategy is to work your way around the door and line up pin by pin with the hole and just keep going in circles around the door until you feel like they are all in. You're not going to die if you break a couple, like i said I broke about 6 on one door and it still is fine.

But I do realize some people really care that all pins are back in, and it will bother the heck out of them if one breaks.

When you're taking the door off, you're going to make some loud noises that will scare the heck out of you. I used these to take the door off:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

My door speakers took Metra 72-6514. I got these at best buy.

The center channel takes Metra 71-039C. I was told you can only get this at Crutchfield. I don't know if that is true, but it was the only place I could find it.

*Note that I have no idea if the adapters are the same for the focals. I used these for my Infinity's

I spliced the tweeters like everyone else did. I cant remember the size of the connectors, but just take one of your adapters to autozone or somewhere and just match the size of the connectors. I put the tweeters in like others with Infinity's. Use 3M double sided tape (the width is coincidentally almost perfect) and wrap it wroudn twice. Then just jam it in the slot (thats what she said).


If you go with the Inifinity for the rear door speakers, you have to use the supplied mounting bracket and make the mounting holes a little bit bigger with a 3/32 drill bit. You're also going to need a drill to mount it. All of my screwdrivers were stripping the screws.

How are the infinity speakers working out for everyone after the break in?

Re: Focals ISS 690, ISC 165 & Polk db351 install tutorial with pics

My infinitys sound even better now a few months later all broken in the bass is fully back and stronger than the stock speakers! Love the upgrade still! To this day this was the best mod I've done! Just be patient the sound continues to improve over time. But the change was instant as far as clarity and volume!
