Aftermarket Audio

Anyone install an aftermarket setup yet? I want to change out the head unit, speakers and install a sub and some amp's.

Also, what's with the aux input on the factory radio, I plugged my iPod into it and only got mono.

Re: Aftermarket Audio

Does your plug have stereo male connectors on either end?

Re: Aftermarket Audio

The cable I used has a 1/8 plug on both sides, it would be nice if they had aux RCA's.

Anybody have the instructions for taking the dash and doors apart. I used to do custom installs and I have built a few award winning projects, like my Dodge Magnum.

What I plan on doing as of now, is installing Alpine's flag ship deck with iPod hook up. Memphis Audio M Class speakers in the front and back and MB Quart tweeters in the dash. Then, I'm going to build a box for the back that will fit the space behind the seats when the 3rd row is up and then when it's down, have it against the 2nd row. The Box will house one Rockford P3 sub and a Rockford amp all built into the box flash. I love Music and listen to Blues, Rock and Jazz and I build my systems for audio quality, not monster bass.

I would love to see what other guys have done.

Re: Aftermarket Audio

I agree 100% about the tint's. What kind of sub's did you go with and how did you install them? I'm very open for ideas.

They make those in both stereo and mono. Does yours have one line across the plug or two?

Are your 12's in a standard sub box or some sort of custom enclosure. I don't see how anyone could hold a 12" sub in the space behind the 3rd row seat while it is up. Do you have to leave it down all of the time?
