i'm experimenting with placement of my L1 Pro R2 tweeters and have them in the a pillar right now just mounted on the a pillar plastic. i tested locations and aiming for a while and the best sound i achieved is physically where they are located now, but angled up towards the rear view mirror and slightly on-axis. that made the soundstage open up wide but with a good focused center image. i've been waiting until i figure what i will do with vinyl/carpet before i fiberglass the pods. it looks like you just covered them with fabric and left the oh-sh!t handle in factory vinyl. it actually doesn't look too bad.

eventually i want to go 3-way with a mid in the pillar, but i would need to get another amp for that. you just inspired me to start saving up for it - the wife is not going to like this idea.
Pods are actually an abs template that I glassed to give it the rigidity and density. I used kitty hair on the backside of the mid and tweeter mounting area to further reinforce it. Mid is crossed over at 350 with a 12db slope and tweeter at 3500. And they are vertical, The mid just barely clears the metal in the pillar. 3 way is the way to go for sure so save up and do it. Oh and the pillars are covered in suede, kinda bored of vinyl at the minute (I cover almost everything in vinyl at work that gets done) and I am thinking about doing my headliner in the matching suede to tie it all together, as well as the upper b and c pillars.

thanks for the info. i'll probably go a suede route similar to you since vinyl can be a little hard to fit contours.

november and december are going to be busy months for me so i don't think i can start this project until next year.

Probably would have went with the AVH-X8500BHS looking back on it since with the advanced app cable I guess (according to a lot of reviews) this one is just retarded where as the AVH-X8500BHS looks exactly like your phone on the head unit when it's plugged in

...we'll see I still want to see what this AVH-X5500BHS looks like with the advanced app cord plugged in and all before I buy it, since it is like.. $100


Other than the advanced app cord dilemma, ITS AWESOME. Very easy to use & looks badass

If you have an iphone 5, there is a huge investment in cables. Need 3.

Love the unit, but there are times the sun can wash out the screen.

Also I wired the dash light connection with a switch. If I turned on my lights for weather, or a funeral, the display went way too dark. I may work out a light sensor to auto adjust, but I think it should have been incorporated.

Do you have an iPhone 5? I'm curious to how it looks/the functionality of it...

The set up in my double cab. The factory storage cubbies are gutted to create the room behind them that I needed. This was done 6 years ago just recently re carpeted the truck and shot a fresh photo. This photo was taken before the new rear buckets were installed.

Here is what it looks like with the new rear buckets installed, seat belts not finished in this pic. It looked and fit great with the OE bench seat but now I am thinking of re doing the whole thing and fab- ing a rear center console that blends into the back wall. Or leaving it open between the rear buckets as is and just making a cover panel for the portion visible between the buckets.

As far as I know you just get those 3 cords, plug em in to the back of the head unit and it should show what's on your phone, on the head unit screen... amirite?

I have the app radio 2 and I just got the iphone 5 cable today gonna install it maybe tomorrow sometime.
Hope to see it all working perfect, and have the screen working rather than just audio and no video
Any one have experience with it yet?
