Finally got the engine bay wiring done. Added some heat shielding to the portion over the engine, then made a small abs fuse mount. 968700C0-3ECA-4D31-B0C1-B890EC7B804F.jpeg

Holy cow this is going to be a great sounding truck! Hardly anyone installs a full sound system anymore.

Props doc.

Can’t decide on the subs. Really wanted to go with the k2’s, but I don’t want to have to lift the rear seats.

while I’m waiting on the new build and bigger garage, had to take the vette out and clean the dust off it. I did get the shallow subs wired up in interim.

Credit to the Focal DSP software for being easy to use, but the inability to customize channel’s is a huge down fall.

Ended up ditching the passive crossovers and going fully active with 10 channels. View attachment 447940
So you ditched the Focal amp and went with the VX from JL? Are you running two sub amps? Trying to figure out how you have it configured. Did you lose ANC when you went aftermarket speakers/amps? I assume so since that is typically tuned to the factory speakers. What did you end up putting in the tweeter above the driver/passenger's head?

That’s a Focal 8 channel DSP. I’m in the works on replacing it with a helix or brax. It offers limited customization.

I ditched the passive crossovers and just went fully active with 10 channels. I put audiofrog GB10’s overhead (tight fit).
