This past Saturday a few of us got together and started workin on the new audio setup.

First big thanks to WattsLok (Jimmy) for all the expertise and help, GotBearings for battling my driver side window motor (which did result in having the *#$% pinched out of his finger), and Steve (EPA) for the help and drinking out of the fart boot.
Drink of the day

Jimmy and Steve(with his boot)



I bought 3 rolls of Raamat from RaamAudio for the deadening. This stuff is EASY to install! Cuts well, sticks well, requires no heating, and has NO smell. I layed two layers in most places in the cabin and the trunk. That took 2 rolls.
Now I have to deaden the doors once the components go in as well as the rear tray as soon as I cut it.


Almost done

Just a few more spots to hit


Here is how the old subs fired



7" Indash touchscreen went in. (Thanks Impholla!)

It's just a little upgrade

BTW:
Anyone have any tips on how to cut the rear deck? Whats the easiest way to cut it, and how big should I go?

Nice! [img]smile.gif[/img] Lookin' good.

A dremel with a good metal cutting bit might be your best bet on the rear deck.

yup. lookin good man! and use a dremel... and start out slow. make your lines that you want to cut, then go back over it with the dremel on a faster setting to cut it.

put masking tape where you are going to cut, and draw with a sharpie to help guide you.

oh, and wear saftey glasses!!!

That looks SWEET! I'm getting ready to do the same thing myself, but I have to find some very patient friends to help with the install. What made you go with the Raamat?

Again BIG thanks to Jimmy for helpin me out yesterday and today on the install! We got everything mounted and back in and let me say my smile is Ear to Ear with how great it sounds!

Dat Shiet Hits!!! The Indash is Pimp with dvd's with the dolby digital.

I drove a few miles with the radio off (which was hard to do), and the Raamat is AMAZING! With no cats and Tri-y's, I would say the sound dropped to at least 1/2 of what it was! It is very comfortable. I have yet to do the back doors, but its amazing! The doors also close like solid doors.
This is definitely something to look into doing.

I Will have more pics and maybe a vid of the install tomorrow!
Thump is Thumpin!!

I chose it because it was the best bang for the buck on the tests. Look at the sticky thread in this section for the test link.
