So far I have added a Kenwood KDC-1028, my first headunit install


Also a custom box for 2 5x7's that were given to me, I would put them in the factory spot but the factory ones are 4x10's so they didnt fit. This was also my first box. I will also post a picture once I put it in.



I plan to add a 10" Kenwood sub and Kenwood amp once I get the money, so once I add those things I will post up more pictures

You cant go wrong with kenwood products although the amps are a little pricy for the power. I have a Kenwood Head Unit but I run AUDISON AMPS. I used to run Kicker amps too but they are expensive as all hell.

Yup, I was planning on eventually putting a pair of 6x9s in the spot where my 4x10s go, but I just haven't gotten around to it. Until I get the chance to make the plates to make it all look nice, I've stuck a new pair of 4x10s back there.

I have a pioneer deck and two 12" JBL. I have a "economical" amp and it just didn't do it, good sound comes from good power, I broke the bank for a Alpine V12, what a difference.

i have a V12 running my 12" MTX Blue Thunder that i bought when I was a sophomore in high school I am now 30 and they still are running perfect!!!! Definatly spend the money the first time on the right amp not one to get you by, i spent $700 on my 600w V12 in in 94 and it was well worth the money!!:great:
