I am finally done replacing the stock Bose sytem. It was way too weak and I didn't like the sound of the speakers. I replaced the stock Bose speakers with Boston Acoustic Pros in the front and Boston Acoutic seperates in the rear. I took out the stock sub and put in my old Soundstream SS10s I also had a motorola handsfree bluetooth kit installed and my Escort 850 hardwired. The entire system is powered by a Precision Power 6-channel amp. My friend used to work as a pro installer at Magnolia Hi-Fi so I'm pretty happy with everything. The audiolink with my IPOD sounds awesome.

Here are some pics:

Very clean. Nicely done. Are there any heat issues with the amp mounted upside down like that? Just curious...

definitely. if you keep the amp there you may consider building a rack to right the amp.

did you use the low level outputs from the stock HU converted into RCAs for the signal input?

I used an Audio Control LC-6 so I didn't have to do any splicing or anything. From what my friend tells me, there shouldn't be any heat issues with the amp.

Nah, you shouldn't. What's the RMS on your subs?

well, keep in mind that heat rises & you've got the heat sinks pointing down. so, the heat is directed back into the amp. not too mention that the trunk deck lid is directly under the rear window, another great source of heat. just a though. it's yours glad you like it.

the stock HU outputs low level out puts. you could have spent $10 on RCA splitters and got a better quality signal. you can grab low levels at the HU or the harness before the bose amp. either way, it's the same signal.

Did your friend make the sub boxes or did you buy them from somewhere?

My friend made them. Fiberglass and resin from what I understand. The smell took a while to dissapate.

The amp is a PPI PRO650, I think it was 400watts but I can't remember.
