Todd Cabell

Todd Cabell is the Senior Director of E-Commerce at Crutchfield. 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 my first install, as this is my first car. The whole installation was done at home, with the help of a few people. The only problem I had was getting the headunit to align straight, but after many times of re-aligning it is perfect. I have a Sirius Satellite Radio on the way, so hopefully eveything goes smooth with that.

Getting the headunit straight, and running the power wire through the firewall.

Two more subs and a Hifonics amp.

    Mr. Rambo, we have a large selection of receivers that are equipped with both navigation and DVD playback. Here's a full list. You can also use our vehicle selector to confirm which stereos will fit your car.

    Is it possible to safely cut the front door speaker on a 1996 cherokee like the one in this article into a 6x9 size without jnterferring with the window operations?

    Luke, we don't recommend it, but you might be able to get away with it. You might run into trouble finding a 6"x9" with a shallow enough basket to fit the top-mount depth. Just be sure that the top-mount depth for the speakers you choose doesn't exceed 3.5" for that front door location.
