    After living with the Alpine 8" HU and the "substandard" stock speakers, it's time for Phase II.

    Custom rear box (no more spare) with JL Audio 10" sub and 5-channel amp. This will be covered in vinyl with blue stitching to match the Clazzio seat covers already installed.

    Doors are soundproofed on the outer skin and inner as well. JBL components will replace all six stock speakers.

    Question for those installing aftermarket audio systems - how does the C's charging system handle the power of a larger amp?

    some in-progress pics:

    I found your post!! Nice job!!! Hey garm are you located in the San Fernado Valley? Reason why I ask is they are on Remmet Ave in Canoga Park. Heard of them. Looks like they did an awesome job on your install. Curious to know what was the cost for there work. Also when you get done can you give us a run down on your system components and end result please. Maybe when you get your system done we could get together so I could hear it. I'm in Simi Valley but work in Northridge. Thanks!!
