This is the most recent vehicle of mine i started working on...
2000 Chrysler LHS, fully equipped from the factory with everything including in-dash changer, heated seats, sunroof, etc. etc. This is my everyday drive around car so i originally wasn't planning on doing it. BUT, since i got about 1000.00 bucks worth of gift cards from crutchfield for free...... : D
First, stripped everything that would have been in the way..all the factory stuff, rear seats speaker covers, etc.
Then started with the installation of the speakers. First the rear
Pulled out the back seat and the rear deck panel and removed the factory 6 x 9's. Because the mounting depth is so shallow i installed Polk DB651s shallow mount 6.5's
since crutchfield likes to give you the adaptors needed for free i had a speaker harness, a 6 x 9 to 6 1/2 adaptor plate and a foam baffle
next was the front door speakers. Here i installed Polk DB series db6500 6.5" component set in each of the factory location for the midbass and the tweeter. Again i used the crutchfield supplied speaker adaptor plate.
I couldn't use the harness on the 6.5's because the speakers were already replaced once before, so i used the harness for the tweeters. Since the tweeters couldnt't fit the same way the factory tweeters did i used a glue gun to mount them in place.
next, the head unit was one i ordered from China ( i sell them online so if you want one just contact me) 4" widescreen, DVD/CD/MP3/TV capable as well as bluetooth connection for phone or stereo signal, input for GPS, rear view camera, additional video/audio inputs including satellite radio, and USB input for additional devices. From there it's attached to a Pioneer DEQ-7600 DSP.
The amps i'm using are two Kenwoods, one KAC-8402 4 channel 780 watts and one KAC - 7202 2 channel 920 watts
Crossovers for the Polk components. I got lucky because the car originally had a factory infinity system with amp so all the wiring for all the speakers could be found in one location, and the crossovers can be tucked away where the factory amp was.
Subs used are Kenwoods KFC - W3011 component subwoofers in a sealed box i built to fit in the confined space underneath the rear deck.
