I actaully have my amp under the driver's seat. All speakers are hooked up. Of course I don't have a sub, or a 5 channel amp so that worked best for me.

Should I add a sub the mono amp would be in the trunk with the sub.

Anyway, the deck is nice. I had thoughts of replacing my deck but didn't like any of the adapters I've seen. Sucks though should I get a deck now, I aready spent 40 bucks on the RCA adapters.

Just an FYI if you have an Iphone or Droid there are some real good EQs... unless you already have an EQ on your deck.

I currently just have a Kenwood amp and 2 10" rockford fosgate P2 punch (4ohm dual voice) subs in my trunk on the stock radio. I just tapped into the rear speakers in the deck for the inputs. Really almost too much... since I almost always have it turned down on the amp. I really want to upgrade my speakers to get some better balance of sound, but I haven't decided whether or not an amp or a aftermarket radio is the way to go. I am worried about losing the functionality of my steering wheel buttons. No I don't have SYNC, but I changed out for a GT500 steering wheel and uploaded the Boss As-Built Data to make the buttons functional (Volume and Preset Change buttons). Anyone know of an aftermarket radio that will utilize these controls?

As far as subs go, I was going to go with a square solobaric or MTX square, but I have to be able to put my dog bed in the trunk, so hence the shallow mount speakers.

Honestly, to me the shallow mount is good enough for me. But i really only listen to 90 percent Rock and some House/Trance with some R&B as well as some country. My sub is set to 2 on my deck, with the high pass filter for the speakers cut off at 100 Hz. The max volume goes to 62 on the head unit, and I have had it up to 50 as that is all my ears can take. Needless to say it really thumps. The square sub would have been too much for me IMO. YMMV

Hope this helps ya

Did you go back to stock? Or is there another kit out there that you like better?

Thanks

Hey Caddy, I was looking on Amazon, and the guy who reviewed it said you need to get an adapter as well as an antenna adapter. What does he mean by that? Did you have to do that too?

Yes, i bought the adapter's on amazon, it says they are for ford/chrysler vehicles with nav. I dont have Nav but if i recall correctly there is a harness, and also it came with all the wires; i.e. speaker, power, antenna...etc
