Headunit:Top of the line Kenwood (Mask) Cassette and mobile CD player
Dash and Rear Speakers: Pioneer 2-way 4x6 & 4-way 6x9
Subs: 3 JL 10" W0's in sealed box
Amp: 1 PPI (Precision Power) 400w x 1

Nice and Loud! To bad I'm gonna sell the car in about 6 months. I'll probably take the audio out and resell it.

So ur replace factory amp, aren't dose PG expensive? that 15 will give u a good thuump of bass. I'd jus do the L logo on the custom box. Neon color is relative to ur car color, i've PearlWhite then i'd get blue/violet. jus my $0.02.

The cheapest way is to get a 1 farad capacitor, it help ur battery & alternator alot. plus ur lite won't dimmed when a deeplow bass hit.

Check out the car stereo section of www.Crutchfield.com
Here's the link... www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/S-DjzCfrWK8EX/ProdGroup.asp?c=2&g=725&s=0

I believe they carry the Lightening Caps Capacitors. Otherwise check with a local pro stereo shop, they should carry them.

Your selections are great. the head unit has no RCA out, you need a line output converter heres the link fr crutchfield http://r2.us.rmi.yahoo.com/rmi/http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/S-jGVryAWl0h4/ProdView.asp/rmivars%3ftarget=_top?s=0&c=2&g=721&I=101PL2&o=M&a=0
hope dis help.

CIS300..yeah those PG amps are expensive but i got them for less than half the retail price.. they retail for about 8-9 hundred US a piece.... a the custom plexi glass cut piece..is not part of a box..it'll be put into a vinyl wall that covers the whole trunk...... I drive a SILVER IS.. i was thinking BLUE lights..but doesn't that clash with the interior lights? i dono..


also.. BLUEBYU....

no stock decks have RCA outputs.. if you want to use the stock deck you gotta use a line out converter.. or a amp that has high level inputs.. just get the best converter possible..

ANYONE have opinions on colour of neon i would have in my trunk?

Unfortunately PG doens't make LOC (line outpit converters)....your best bet will probably being buy an audio control in dash EQ that has high level inputs or buy a LOC from PIE or Crystal Line..that's what i hear is the best...
any opinion on colour for the neon?

Hey Damon, I actually have purple and blue neons all over my truck. There all in the box and in the amp rack. It depends what type of interior color you have for your truck. If its black, you could try red neons. its just a suggestion. thanks and good luck.
