2013 SuperDuty Audio/Stereo upgrade
I did not find any threads that talk about doing a full audio upgrade on the 2013 and up trucks with Navigation. So I figured I will make a contribution to the group and create a thread on my build.
I am not doing this build myself. I came up with what all I wanted and how I wanted it done and it is being done by a buddy of mine who is a professional installer.
The head unit, will remain the same. No changes all the way to the factory Sony amp. Basically disconnecting the factory amp is not an option as if you disconnect the factory amp, the sync goes blank and nothing comes up.
So will use a Bit Ten processor from the factory amp on-wards. Plan is to keep all the factory wiring untouched so if I ever have to put it back to factory condition it is pretty much plug and play.
It will be a passive set up. I do not want to spend the money to get an active setup.
The front door will get Dynamat inside out. The rear doors since don't have any mids will only get dynamat on the outside skin. The rear part under the rear glass will fully dynamated.
Processor / Line output converter: Audison Bit Ten processor
Amplifier: JL Audio HD 900/5
Front stage: Focal 6.5" KR component speaker system
Rear: Focal 6.5 coax speakers.
Subwoofers: Pioneer 10" Shallow mount X 2 in a custom box.
