    I've had the system laying around for a month or so and finally had time for installation with some help from TW and my friend Grant!

    Parts used:

    Pioneer 3200BT with bluetooth no navi.
    Scosche double din dash kit and Metra wire harness
    Axxess steering wheel control interface
    Kicker 10ZX750.1 and Kicker Z series Amp Kit
    10in. Solo Baric L7 Sub
    Custom built sealed box


    Overall I'm very happy with the installation it was somewhat of a budget build. As you can see the box is a little bit to high in the rear for the seat to fold all the way down (originally designed to hide the sub to deter theft).In the future I'm hoping to put aftermarket speakers powered by another amp and rebuild the box. Thanks TW for showing me how to tap into my factory backup camera to get it on both screens! Let me know what you guys think...

    Nice job! Hard to tell... does unit have USB in front? How hot does the amp run? Looking for similar amp and same install location under seat...

    unfortunately the unit only has a front usb. I wanted it to look as clean as possible so I'm using an 32gb SD card to play my music. The SD card is right next to the usb slot. I would have likeed to put small risers under the amp to improve air flow but I already had to trim the metal bar to move your seat back and forth for the amp to fit. It probably has only 1/8in. clearance from bottom of the seat. Anyways to answer your question the amp has not gotten abnormally hot, then again I've only had it in there for a few days ;)

    the more i look the more i like this unit!! I see you can also change back light colors and import your own wallpaper, does it match factory amber well?...not sure about the power handling works. says 50w max rms so any idea on max size front speakers?

    the amber matches up pretty well. Most all aftermarket stereos put out 50w a channel with 4 channels but yeah that is peak power not rms.
