    Recently, I have upgraded my system from stock. I added an Arc Audio 4 channel amp, Focal component door speakers, and an Audio Mobile 12" sub in a custom box. I like that it is simple (2 speakers and a sub, 1 amp) but still sounds amazing. So far I have kept the stock deck. I like that a thief would most likely pass it up because it looks stock. My local shop (Audio Images SF) helped me with this project. I have been going there for years because they are one of the best car audio shops in the bay area. Sorry for the sideways pics. I haven't yet got the hang of posting pics.

    Looks great. I really like simple installs. It doesn't take much to make great sound.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Did the door speaker used any after market bracket alike to hold the Focal speakers?

    I like to get a pair of better speakers for my truck myself.

    Thanks for the feedback. The adapters for both the tweeters and the midrange/woofers are custom cut. The crossovers are also mounted in the doors.

    I was afraid you were gonna say that!

    Taco tunes sells the bracket off the shelf product. I was trying to avoid buying the bracket.

    Yeah, I am aware of Tacotunes. It looks like they make some good products.

    Really like the simple install! How did you get the aftermarket Focal badges on your stock door grilles to look so clean? A little bit of glue?
