    First of all....good install. You keep it clean and functional and I can really appreciate that.

    I ran the Focal 165V1 set (basically the exact same just a diff tweet material) in my IS300 and LOVED them. With that door sealed you'll really get some excellent midbass. Detail from them is great as well. Does the D2 have time alignment options?

    I'm diggin those rear fogs and tailgate alarm trigger as well :)

    Nice job. It all looks great.
    Unfortunately now you've given me a couple of ideas of additional mods I would like to do, and I thought I was just about finished! That's why I need to stay off this site as much as possible.

    Yeah focal is pretty bad ass!! If you dont have connections they are very $$$ but well worth the money! These things sound like im at a live concert. Its insanely clear. If you want details on the mods let me know. Thanks!

    The stealthbox is more than I expected. Some people will say that you can get a better sound with a custom built box but my main focus was quality and a clean OEM look, and this was my best option. Although pretty $$, they sound amazing. With proper dynamat installation you wont get any rattling either. Thanks!

    I totally know where ur coming from :D This place makes me want everything that I cant have lol. It sucks. Most of my mods were fairly cost efficient so if you want any details or ideas just let me know! Good luck and thanks for the comments!


    Come on guys thats it?!? Lets hear what you think good or bad let me know.

    Hows the stealthbox sound with the 500/1? I'm using the 250/1 as recommended and i thought about going bigger, what are your thoughts? Also, where can i get those bedlights, i love the look of those. thanks!

    VERY NICE JOB!! I would like some info on your stock wiring switches and what back up lights you used. As how you did these if possible. Not very good at electrical.
    Again nice clean install and cant wait to get my new system installed. Tired of looking at it in boxes by the chair.:p

    dynamat reduces rattle. A product like second skin would help keep it more quiet

    Second skin is not a product, its a brand. ;)

    Second Skin Damplifier and Dynamat Extreme are essentially identical.

    Perhaps you meant luxury liner or Luxury Liner Pro?

    ajenright,

    Would like details on how the remote knob was placed in that spot. Its placement is the last decision I have.

    Did you add an aftermarket rear-view cam or did you tie the stock into the nav unit? If the latter, how did you do it?

    Thanks, looks good. I'm looking into those same Focals... glad to hear you like them.
