    Wink allante audio

    well because this allante system is tricky and fails all the time.
    i am seperating the whole audio system from the car and making it aftermarket.
    to start i bought component XL 5.25 powerbass speakers that JUST shoe horn into the stock BOSE box in the front. you can see the modifications i made the the box and where i put the tweeter.. the tweeter is still "open" to the cabin air even tho they are placed in the corner
    i placed the crossover where the stock mini amp goes (.. cut off the tabs and screwed it into the original mounting holes)
    the wire that is recomended for this audio was thiner then the stock BOSE wire. so i am re using it for the fronts.. this way i do not have to run new wires once i de-solder them from the main unit int he glove box.
    I plan to run powerbass 6/9s in the back and a single 12 inch sub in the back. also a centre mid that will be fassioned into the dashboard.
    right now i am just doing the fronts.. soon i will show you the back 6/9's in a box.
    what do you think?

    Re: allante audio

    thank you!. i will be doing the other side tomorow evening and then installing it in the car..
    Yes my headunit stills works. the only thing that went out was the back speakers.
    currently i am not sure if i want to part with it.. becuase i may not find a deck that looks factory enough and will fit. but once i do i will take it out..
    if you have any suggestions let me know.. it has to be double din and have puch buttons and they must be square/rectangular to match the car some what.

    I dont think I have ever seen a hu which will fit the stock configuration, some major custom fabbing would have to be done...
