Installation Description

The entire installation was done by a local audio shop where I live. I designed the layouts for the lighting and the enclosure design. I also wanted all components matched. I ended up losing the use of the rear jump seats to make room to house some of the equipment. End result is very clean looking install with maximum use of the small space provided.

Q&A Section

Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?

I wanted something different and something very loud.

What's the first thing you show people about your installation?

I show the interior trim first, but quickly move to the sub enclosure and amp rack.

Why did you choose these products?

I chose Alpine for the reliability and features, and I chose Memphis for price and sound it offers.

What was the most difficult part of the installation?

The hardest part was trying to fit so much stuff in the extended cab of a little Ford Ranger.

What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?

I will be adding an 11" Alpine LCD flip screen with a 7" Alpine in-dash LCD DVD/CD Headunit and an Xbox 360.
