Installation Description

I worked as a professional installer for many years, so car stereo installation has become second nature -- in fact, the more unique and the more challenging the installation, the better I like it. A standard cab truck with a high-Q woofer is one of the toughest. Besides, this truck is for racing, not car audio competitions, so I've done my best to keep the equipment lightweight and to a minimum, but without compromising the sound. The current stereo has been in place since I bought the truck new. Only 42,000 original miles later, it's still loud and clear.

Q&A Section

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

Stock systems sound terrible. And are unimpressive at car shows.

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

All of it -- and how clean it looks and sounds.

Why did you choose these products?

I have had outstanding experience with both Pioneer and Kicker from my competition days.

What was the most difficult part of the installation?

Designing a box that would fit behind the seat of a standard cab S-10, but produce tight and low bass.

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

None, unless something blows up. If anything, a good 3-way (tweeter, 4" & 6") to replace the coax speakers.

    Very nice. How did you install the dash speakers? I want Kickers in mine but Crutchfield do not recommend them.
