I need tunes…..sometimes it’s not on and sometimes it’s loud
I put a complete new system in my 348 last year. Prices have dropped considerably but I still spent $1500…. But I didn’t buy or change the front speakers as they are Alpines and work great and I only needed 1 woofer. The deck was easy to install. Wiring is simple on old cars, +, -. Acc, Antenna and 3 positive and 3 negative wires for 3 speakers….it was super easy.
Biggest problem for me was passing the 2 gauge power (+) wire and hiding it properly as the car and carpet is tight. Passing wires to the front compartment was also a chore as I had to find an opening to pass the speaker wires.
I installed a 60AMP fuse Block at the rear of the car as close as possible to the + battery terminal and used a cover and secured it to the wire for when the cable went through the firewall.
I installed my 2 amps and a 1f CAP in the front with a 3 40AMP Fuse Block….all looks nice but removing the front carpet was a pain. I drive my car a lot and sometimes, a little music is nice. I can put 800 miles in a month easy…If I was going for short rides all the time….then maybe not but I almost never go out for less than an hour at a time and my average is 2+ hours at a time 2-4+ times a week.
I will post pictures later tonight…..and freak everyone out….lol
