John Choi's 2002 Toyota Rav4

Installation Description

First the headunit was replaced with the Clarion. Then the speakers were replaced with Infinity speakers. The front was replaced with the component system, and the factory tweeter mount was modified to fit the tweeters from the component system. The crossover units were installed inside of each door. The power subwoofer then was mounted under the seat. The Sirius tuner was installed well hidden behind the plastic panel in the trunk. The antenna was then put on top of the roof and routed in the weather moldings. The key of the installation was to make everything look as if they were factory installed.

Q&A Section

Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?
I wanted Sirius radio with one central control for everything.

What's the first thing you show people about your installation?
They don't realize anything has been done until they hear the sound.

Why did you choose these products?
I've had Clarion units before and they lasted for a long time. Plus Crutchfield offered a fair price and support.

What was the most difficult part of the installation?
Nothing was difficult but took a pretty fair amount of time.

What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?
None for this car.

    Just installed a dual headunit that is double din. It left about a quarter inch gap on each side. It sits flush but the trim piece the head unit won't fit is there a dash kit that hides the gap to look factory?

    Ricky, With questions like that, it's always better to have a conversation with a real live human. If you bought your gear from Crutchfield, you can call Tech Support for free help troubleshooting your system.

    Nando, The tweeters are right behind the sail panels, which are pretty easy to pry off. There's no mounting bracket for the new ones, so you'll need our universal backstraps (or hot glue or silicone). If you're getting ready to upgrade your own RAV4, enter your vehicle's info into our Outfit My Car tool to see which stereos and speakers fit. If you have any questions, our advisors are available via phone or chat.

    Christopher, That sub has been discontinued, but we have plenty of other, newer powered subwoofers in stock, so check 'em out. If you have any questions, just give us a call!
