We all know Bose in our application pretty much sucks. I needed more when I jam Iron Maiden so I begged ssmith100 to help me out the day before our Houston meet.
We said hi and within 5 minutes were working.
Removing the doors is SIMPLE. Small screwdriver pry up the oval plate behing the grab handle, remove 2 screws, small screwdriver unlock and release the square tab on the lock, pull the bottom of the door out hard and take off panels. The knob things want to fall out.
Buy some GOOD deadener, pry the plastic off, remove the stock speakers and deaden the heck out of your doors. WEAR GLOVES. I am shredded in part from dynamat, in part on metal edges. At the meet the guys wondered if I had leprosy.
Shane did this for a living, his install was impeccable. My dynamat job...well it is mediocre at best.

Our ingredients came from http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm
Let me tell you about this place...they called me twice to say the Sub wouldn't work. Shane knows the details. Let's just say they talked me into a more expensive sub i didn't need.
SCK4 - Lightning Audio 4awg AmpKit W/RCA's+Spkr 1 $44.99
73443 05C10-4 - Kicker 10" 4-ohm voice coil subwoofer 1 $45.99
10435 - Dynamat Xtreme Door Kit 1 $66.99
e1200 - JL Audio Mono 200 Watt Amplifier $169.99
RBC-1 JL Audio Remote Bass Control



The A-pillars needed serious Dynamat love:

Sound deaden that rear deck or your nice free air sub will rattle. Sound deaden everything you have exposed. I must be up to $200+ on deadener, planning to throw some more in the trunk.



Not pictured: Running the controller up thru the center console for a nice hidden install in the cig lighter.

Impressions: DO IT NOW. Yeah i say this about every mod, lol. But the car has bass now, and the Infinity rock. No plans nor reason to add another amp or headunit.

urbanski scale hardness: 7
Beers: 18 (10 me, 8 Shane)
Hours: 7, no lunch break
Do it again?: hell yeah. She bangs now, but doesn't rattle :p
