First off - this isn't going to be a show car. It's my commuter car and I just want quality tunes w/ bluetooth support (i always miss phone calls while driving...)
Even though part of me says to keep it simple I tend to go a bit overboard and will likely do more than really needed.
So here's where we stand now:
Stock stereo (AM and FM!):
I barely can call these speakers... they really are more of a hiss/pop/fuzz generator at this point...
Left and Right. As you can see - the surrounds are GONE - totally cracked/missing from sitting / just plain old.
And amusingly enough - here's the back of the speaker:
10 Watts! woohoo - the POWER!
General other pics:
Doors were in good shape - if anyone is local and wants these vapor barriers - they are clean and free to a good home. hate to throw them out, but won't be using them.
some odd venting at the bottom and a couple spots of foam - this one right behind the stock speaker... obviously to help calm down all 10w of serious power.
i tried to get a decent shot of the stock standoffs - here's the best i could manage one handed...
OK, with that out of the way - here's my plan:
Doors - some nice components i have kicking around.
Head Unit (HU) - an extra Pioneer DEH-P710BT i was going to put in my landcruiser, but now is soobie bound. Cruiser will get something different when it's finally ready.
Amp - PDX 4.150 for doors.
Sub - Still TBD, but leaning towards an inexpensive "slim" sub like pioneer has.
Again - no stereo competitions planned, but good tunes are needed and I like a bit of (non rattling) bass.
