as for the wiring this is what i did on each side:
As for the HU. I do not have the $$$ currently to buy a new deck the $100 adapter and an amplifier. I am not sure I want a single DIN reciever either. I dont think they match well. I had been considering a JVC 2DIN but decided on an amp instead. I like how the factory HU looks and would rather keep it.
anyway, I'll be sending this thing back and getting something else. Another question though... If you could only amplify two speakers + a sub, which would you choose? Front 6.5s+Tweets or Rear 6x9s?
