He drives a 2000 Ford F-150 with an Alpine stereo in the dash, Polk/MOMO speakers, a Rockford Fosgate amplifier, and an MTX Thunderform under the rear seat. He hopes to one day outfit his 1962 Mercury Comet with a worthy sound system as well.

Installation Description

This is a setup of 2 Image Dynamics IDQ10D4 V.2 10" Subs, powered by a Kicker KX650.4 4-channel Amplifier. I used a Rockford Fosgate 4 AWG Amp Install Kit to hook everything up and a Scosche SLC4 4-channel Line Output Converter to get the signal from the stock headunit.
