Pinarello Rider This is great 2012TI - I am batting around the idea of improving the door speakers a little and this will help. I'm not an auto-audiophile by any stretch, but I'm wondering if upgrading the speakers will be enough of an improvement.

2012TI Thank-you Mark and it does sound amazing I wish I could show the sound over YouTube but unfortunately you can't do that, it sounds terrible when it's recorded on the phone. But Thank-You.

2012TI unboxing JL clean sweep

I want to send out a BIG thanks to (Yanner) and (Tony407) for answering my questions.

I will post new vid links as I make my way thru the install.
vid 3 updated 7/25/12
vid 4
I did miss up the on the second vid with the editing but you all get the point.

Some of the stuff in my vids may be redundant in other post, that others have all ready figured out.

Thanks to all

SkyPilot looks good so far.

This weekend I installed a Bazooka BTA850FH in my hatch, I ran the wires down the drivers side, and found that on that ide there is a nice little channel under the carpet about 6 inches from the seat belt anchor point, that the wires fit PERFECTLY into going into the hatch. Idk if there is one on the passenger side but take a look, it might work out better than running them by the seat hinge where you have them now.

Also I dont remember what wire i tapped into for the remote turn on, and most likely got the wrong one, but what one did you use or are planning to use?

Bwill9886 Thanks for documenting your progress OP. I probably won't be doing that much audio with this car, but I appreciate being able to see all this done in case I change my mind (which can happen a lot).

Just watched part four, and had to laugh a bit when you said 92 degrees was hot. That feels like spring/fall weather at this point around St. Louis haha! I'll actually be up in Michigan in about a week for vacation and hope to enjoy your weather.
