- Alpine SPS-17C2 6-1/2" 2-way car speakers, two in front doors, two in rear deck
The installation process was not hard, but it was not extremely easy either. The speakers were very easy to put in the front doors, but were harder to put in the rear deck simply because I had to rip the back of the car apart to lift the liner up to get at the speakers. The Valor 301D was a fairly simple installation once I got all the wires crimped and the heat shrinking in place.
Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?
Wanted a more advanced system then the factory one.
Why did you choose these products?
They were good prices for the quality I was getting.
What was the most difficult part of the installation?
Crimping the wires and putting the rear speakers in.
What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?
Subwoofer, back seat monitors, back up camera.
