So i like a decent system in my truck. I used to be decently big into car audio, my last 2 daily drivers have come from the factory with bose (i don't LOVE bose, I actually don't really like it, but it good enough to not rip it out). Just got the ford with a decently stripped interior, broken cd player and the sound is miserable. This thread will be about how i fix it.
I'll be getting most of my stuff local off CL cause i like to meet as many sketchy people as possible, haggle, and pay cash for my goodies. I have started collecting.
so far i have...
receiver: Kenwood DNX570HD (dvd, nav, ipod, usd, hd radio, bluetooth audio and phone calls, backup camera, ect)
speakers: 3 pair of JBL gto 8608c component speakers (i know i only need 2 pair, just got a spare as it came in the deal
amp: mb quart discus 480 which is 80w RMS x 4 channels at 4 ohm
backup camera: generic CMOS color, night vision waterproof from ebay for $20. I normally wouldn't cheap out here, but I had the same one on my denali for 3 years without issue and the quality isn't half bad
meta dash mount kit and plug adaptor.
The truck is pretty strippie so i don't have to worry about steering wheel controls, I have ford adaptor plug to radio harness almost completely wired up to make the install faster, but i'll probably have to do it in stages since its my DD and my other whips are put away for the winter so i can't take it off the road for an AV install.
so far all i've done is install 1 pair of components in the front door. WOW what a difference already
. I've been hearing parts of songs that bose junk has been leaving out for years.
I'll keep this updated, hopefully with some pics of progress as well
