Just got my bonny last week. I Love it, BUT the stock stereo makes me
It has the tape deck with the EQ on it with two grills per door mid and a tweet I presume. The best part about it is the wheel controls. My previous car had my alpine pushing two sets of kicker components front and back. The alpine is a vdrive cda9815 so it did a descent job and I loved it. So now yall know why I'm hurting.
I kept the Alpine but wrote off the components , both sets were 5x7. I've read a few posts about the front speakers and figure I must have 5.25'* in the front, although every fit guide on the net says 4x6. I've also read of people stuffing 6.5'* up there. I would much rather stick those up front, but I need to know since I buy all my audio stuff off of ebay, and would rather take the front doors off just once. Is there room to mount the passive Xover under that big *** door panel. I like mounting tweets alot higher then that tweet spot on the door. What do yall think about mounting them up on the door, like on the flat of the door panel on top next to the mirror adjuster stick. Looks like you could flush mount them to me. Has anyone done this. I thought it might look odd almost being in the middle of the door, but I know it would sound better then the bottom of the door.
My Alpine has to have direct power from the battery so I'll have to run that to. I dont mind drilling but would rather sneak it through the firewall. I'm sure there is a link to this on this site. When I do that I will also be running 4gage through as well since I have two L5 10'* that Ive never used but plan to eventually. Had my contour all wired as well but was satisfied with my kicker components for the most part. How about wiring the front doors from the deck? Can you slip through the rubber hose going through to the door or is that a plug for the wires which would mean drilling
. The back deck looks pretty cut and dry to drop some nice 6x9'* in. Oh ya and what the hell is that swich in the trunk for? It says trunk lockout or something. I just left it how it was
quick recap of gist of post
1 Size Front speaks?
2 room to mount xover?
3 tweet mount location (*) suggestions?
4 firewall passthrough points?
5 running speaker wire to front doors and rear if thats an unseen problem?
6 trunk lockout switch purpose?
