Installation Description

The process took about three hours including a dinner break. I couldn't decide where to mount the amp so I placed it in the trunk for now. I first wired the two subs to the box and mounted them into the box. I then disconnected the car's battery and disassembled the dash board to get the stock tape-deck out. I hooked up the new wires to the wire harness, attaching the REM, AUX, AMP wires, etc. I wired the power cord from the battery through the firewall and back into the trunk by means of the paneling, behind the rear seats, and into the trunk. I connected the subs to the amp, then the ground, REM, and the power cable to the amp. I put the Alpine stereo in place and reassembled the dash board. I connected the battery back up and it was ready to go.
