Where did you guys go through the firewall for the huge power wire? I'm having a hell of a time threading anything through. I'm hesitant to make any holes.

Phil

There's so much more to illustrating (and hearing) improved sound characteristics than a frequency response sweep. However, if you can't hear the difference between a factory, paper, whizzer-cone driver and a good aftermarket coax speaker, then you probably shouldn't waste your money.

So no one has upgraded the Sony 10 or 12 speaker system yet? I really want to reuse my Focal 165V Editions from the Jeep.

Can just the bottom half of the door panels be removed to access the front speakers?

No. The panels are one piece.

2013 MK3 NVX Audio System

I just picked up Tux Black 2013 SE... I didn't get the MFT since the Sony system was not a great system. Below is a few pics.

You have any pics of everything installed?

Also, for those that had the speakers installed, whats the average rate being charged?

I don't have more pics of the install as I left the installers do there work and didn't wanna get in there way..... My install was $1,500 but I would pay more for what they did for my car.... For the tweeters since they are 29mm they made custom pods sound dampened the car ran my processor since I kept my stock stereo they tuned everything perfect
