The girlfriend wanted a new stereo in her Jeep, so she picked out the speakers, I sugggested the radio and I already had the amps. Oh and I got to supply the free labor to install everything.
I even have some blurry in progress pictures for you too.
Fronts: Focal 165KRX2
Rear: Focal 165KRC
Sub: JL Stealthbox (on order)
JL HD 600/4
JL HD 750/1
I ran 2 pairs of Tsunami 14 awg speaker wire into each door (front and back). Luckily the connectors at the body had openings big enough to accomodate without having to modify the connector. I had to run 2 sets cause both sets of speakers have crossovers and I didn't want to mount them in the doors in case I needed to adjust anything.
For the speakers I used the stock speakers as a template to make adapters for the Focals. I used 1/2" MDF then sprayed them black to blend. I used black RTV and the stock screws to hold them in place. I also have a gasket to seal the speaker to the adapter plate.To help with vibration, I put stuck some sound deadener in and around the speaker mount.
Running the rear speaker wire sucked!
I had to take the whole boot apart and used lubricant to get both sets of wires in.
RCA's are run under the plastic channel along the driver side.
No pictures yet but the amps/crossovers are being mounted where the spare tire was. If we take her Jeep on any road trips, I'll just throw the spare in the back.
Also, in case it hasn't been mentioned, you need to cut away some of the plastic part of the inner dash to get an aftermarket DDIN radio in there.
So, with all that being said, here are some crappy cell phone in progress pics (I didn't take any of the rear doors apart).
