Installation Description

Installed Metra dash kit for DIN head units and then proceeded to run all the wires. Installed the 4800 from Pioneer with minimal effort using the wiring harness included from Crutchfield. Installed front speakers using wiring harnesses included from Crutchfield. Also applied Stinger Pro sound deadener to both front doors. Mounted the tweeters in the door panels just above the handles (great imaging from this location). Installed rear speakers again using included wiring harnesses along with sound deadener across the entire rear deck. Both the Profile and JL Audio Amps are mounted on a Wedge-shaped rack just behind the rear seat in the trunk. 8G and 4G power and grounds run through dual Stinger distribution blocks from the battery terminals and are protected by two breakers mounted to the rear of the rack. The dual 10" enclosure from JL is mounted to the floor of the trunk just behind the amp rack. All speaker/aftermarket lighting power and ground connections are routed through barrier strips to allow for quick disconnect.

Q&A Section

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

I was looking for a major improvement in performance and quality. It's more about the "sound" for me than the bass...although my stuff hits very nicely!

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

The Amps, Rack, and Sub Enclosure at night accented by the trunk's aftermarket lighting.

Why did you choose these products?

JL Audio & Pioneer due to high quality standards and performance. Stinger was chosen based on price.

What was the most difficult part of the installation?

Routing power cables through the firewall.

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

Will be adding an XBOX 360 along with dual 10" LCDs within the next 3 months.

    Shani, it could be that the alternator was already weak and the current draw by the amp was too much for it. But that doesn't mean it won't happen again. Take it to a professional car audio installer and have them take a look at it to make sure it's installed and wired correctly.
