Default audio system complete 56k red alert

Thanks Guys! This site made my install fairly easy. The only problem was mounting the tweeter. The tweeter mount was to small to fit in the factory cut out so I had to make an adapter ring. I finally found something that I could use at home depot. It'* a pvc flush flange. .49 cents x2 well spent. The ring fit perfectly in the factory hole and let me mount my tweets. In the front I installed infinity 50.5cs 5 1/4 components and in the rear i installed infinity 6x9'* 9602i'*. my head unit is an alpine cda 9815 that I wired to the spot under the maxifuse. I was planning on wiring directly to the battery but my battery has no top terminals. I went ahead and wired for my amp that I do not have, but if I'm drilling in the firewall better take care of it now while I'm motivated!! Looks like I'll have to add a battery to my bonnie want list. Well heres the pics

This pic is a view into the door through the white light slot. Whoever put the panel on squished the trunk release black wire with the bolt. I thought it was grounded there at first until I saw where the wires went. I'm surprised the trunk release worked. Oh well I took care of it with a lil electrical tape

Well I used my bonneville super adapter ring. This pic is a before and after of the flange I bought from home depot.

The Outside diameter of the flange is I think around 2.3" which fits perfectly in the Stock tweeter spot. The OD of my aftermarket tweeter is just under 2 inches.
I work in a machine shop and used a cnc to cut off all the extra I didnt need. You could use a bader (sander) the pvc pipe sands better then I thought. I also had to dremel the Inside diameter a touch to get my tweeter flush mount cup to fit inside of the home depot flange. The flange is tapered inside so I dremeled it until the tweeter mount fit flush in the flange. The tweeter flush mount is threaded on the back side and has a big nut you just twist on from the inside to secure the whole thing. This flange probably would work with many other tweeters that are two small. I painted the flange black to match the tweeter flush mount and bammo.

yah i just cut the tweeter plate up, popped in the new tweeters, and then screwed them to the plate with the twist ring that goes around it. i like the look of the stock grilles plus nobody expects the sound to be that good from a speaker that looks stock. i just need to get an amp for em tho cuz its not loud enough for me.
