2006 V6 Convertible Stereo build

Hi guys

Going to be installing my stereo into my Convertible. Figured I'd let you all in on the fun.

Equipment:
Pioneer AV-3200BT, Double Din head unit, replacing Shaker 500
JL Audio 250.1 sub amp
ads Power Plate 80 amp

Speakers
Polk Momo 6.5 Components
Image Dynamics IDQ 12" sub

I'm hoping the Polks go in the doors without too much issue. For now leaving the stock Shaker subs in the doors with their amps.

It is looking like I will have to fiberglass in the sub. As noone seems to make a corner box for the convertible.

Head Unit

Installed the headunit first. I picked up a wiring harness and install kit from Crutchfield. It went in super easy. No pics of steps but I'll add one of finished product later.

As you can imagine the Shaker setup sounds much better with a real head unit.

Amp Rack

I build an amp rack today. Pretty simple build. 1x6 pine board, cut to size and then covered with grey carpet I picked up from Best Buy.

I mounted it to the roof of the trunk below the top bay. You have to completely remove the rear seat to get under the canvas to have access to the sheetmetal. I drilled holes through the sheet metal and then mounted the board.
