Installing the Alpine deck into my car was easy, custom fitting the rear deck speakers so the speaker grilles will show was also easy, just took a little time. The hardest part of my whole set up was getting the box into the trunk, I had to play with it a little. The front door speakers had to be fiberglassed into the doors and painted to match outside color of my car. I will be either adding another 15" and fiberglassing my whole trunk or something else. Stay tuned.
