    I thought I replied to this thread?

    My set up is pretty simple, all the guys tell me it's the most docile part of my ride right now. Hope to spice it up a bit in the next few weeks.

    I like your set up nice and clean. I'm trying to do the same thing, to be nice and clean. the wildiest I'm getting is the glass box. now here is some questions for you. is your interior suede? and is your system wired separetly from the facory system or is it tied into you factory unit. If I can't get the Pac module soon I'll have to wire it separetly. any suggestions?

    Yes, interior was done in suede. The raised floor area was carpet but I got retarded with the interior panels and did just about every one of them.

    I'm running a new headunit and not using the oem one at all. Originally it did have the PAC input from the new Alpine head unit.

    I did it in 2 phases.

    New Alpine headunit, nav and ipod kit.

    New amps, speakers, subs and stopped using the aux in on the oem head unit.

    Ok, cool. I'm getting the engine noise trying to through the factory system. it is a pain in the butt. now, when you did have the pac unit did you have any problems? I was even thinking about using a selector switch so that I could use the full features of my head unit and hopfully eliminate that problem as well. I'll have to see,still in the begining stage doing it myself and since I don't have alot of time I have to do most things when I'm off work.

    I didn't have any engine noises using the aux input to the oem headunit. I think Johnmax would be the best resource for the FX audio/video system.

    I installed the pac unit last night b4 going to work an the engine noise is gone. boy was I happy about that. I was able to use some jumper lines from the back of the head unit video out, to the factory rear video and that way I now get sound from the factory system when I use the FHU feature. I'm now able to start wiring up the video in head rest and visor. my last stage will be to fleece, resin, glass, bondo and paint and all should be complete. So I'll try to get as much done b4 work tonight and off the rest of the weekend to finsih up most else

    Looking good. :D

    I like the glassing over the center console, the led on the sub looks cool too.

    Did you list your gear yet?

    No I hadn't listed the gear yet.I just resized the pics for posting so that the photos are easier tolook at. I didn't like the head unit poking out of the brushed metal so I decide to paint. I saw something like this before but with a screen in place instead of a head unit. So I gave it a shot, it looks better in person though.

    Yeah the clarion doubledin was the one done down there as well. It looks good painted, especially since your interior is graphite. How's it sounding?

    Right now its very clean, once the sub warms up I have to tone it down slightly. So my plan today is increase the mid and highs just a hair. Turn down the sub for better staging. The PG Elite 12" is design for SPL in a ported box, but it has nice SQ in a sealed box. It's a large piece, which requires 1000 watts rms to run properly; I'm running 1200 to it, and 550 watts to the mids and highs (3rd Amp in the wheel well w/battery). The Head unit is the JVC KD-AVX11, a compact unit. Blue tooth ready, mp3, divx, sat, IPOD, DVD, everything except NAV. I had a flip out unit b4 and just didn't have much luck with the unit. My other project is to install 2 5" computer fans 1 to suck in cool air and the other pull out hot to help resolve any possible heat issues over long periods of play.

    Thanks Doc, well I'll be in Cali next month, moving is not my cup of tea. but, if there is anything I can do to help let me know. its hard work but the end result is what we look fwd too. I'm happy now, it just took a few weeks b/c of working the real job in between the hobby.

    No I'm headed to North Cal but I'm sure I'll be making a few trips down your way to check out all the socal rides.
