The audio and video is all me. The install was cake, as I've been doing it for about 13 years now. The rest of the work was done at a performance shop, and the future work will be done at a shop, too.
The H22A motor and transmission is from a Prelude Si, with a Hondata ecu, Tokico shocks and struts, and Eibach Pro springs. The 17-inch wheels are wrapped in Nitto NeoGens. The car is sweet, but not close to being finished!!!
Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?
So it would sound great.
What's the first thing you show people about your installation?
I don't show it off.
Why did you choose these products?
I just prefer Alpine.
What was the most difficult part of the installation?
Nothing, but I'm not finished yet.
What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?
About $30,000 to go, and it will be finished.
The Alpine head unit runs the show.
The amp for the interior speakers is tucked out of sight.
Two Alpine Type-R subs provide massive amounts of bass.
Each sub is pushed by its own Alpine amp.
The Accord with H22 swap.
