I finally got my sound system finalized and put in. Took many hours of work, as well as swearing and cut hands. Here's what I put in:
JL Audio JX500/1D Mono amp
JL Audio XD400/4 Four Channel amp
Polk Audio db5251 5 1/4" Component speakers (front)
Kicker KS68 Coaxial speakers (rear)
JL Audio CP208LG-W3v3 Dual 8" Microsubs
Nothing too fancy or deafening but a nice boost to a mediocre sound system.
Here's how I did it:
Getting the 0 gauge in through the truck was not fun, took probably two hours
Got the door panels off with ease and replaced all the speakers, had to use speaker brackets for the fronts.
Rough in of the amp mounting boards. I used 1/2" MDF board and simpson brackets and painted both with rustoleum, thanks to F150Lasso for idea.
Got some of the wire pulled in and connected. Seats still go up and down just fine.
Cut out a space for my subs in the weather mats, there not secured in anyway and so far the subs haven't moved at all.
