Pioneer deh-p3500 into a 1987 Mercedes with 180,000 miles, tweeters and rear decxk speakers were double sided taped in place(there when i started). All i did was dissamble a damn European car into a million peices to run those wires to the trunk, i installed a Fosgate he2 15" sub with an 800watt mono Xplod amp. Sounded nice,especially considering the gas tank was between the back seat and the trunk.

my first install was almost as embarrising as my spelling ....

     I was 15 and my grand father left me his turd of an old work truck for my first rig it was a smurf blue 81 ford curier and the would be system was just as ugly, i bought a second hand underdash am fm tape deck i think it was a sparcomatic and i got it out of a wrecked car in the junk yard for 5 bucks and for speakers i went all out i stole the subs out of my dads old radio shack towers ran em right off the deck and i stuck em right to the back wall of the cab( thats what a magnet is for isnt it? lol)  no need for mids or tweets i almost had bass....

                      yes i have improved a little now i but my decs straight from radioshack.....hahahhahahahahaha yeah i suck.

1984 toyota corolla. alpine pull out underneath the factory radio.(normally where you'd find the factory pocket.) when i'd take out the alpine, i put the factory pocket back in place so the car looked stock. mtx terminator 12" subs powered by a Legacy 4 channel amp. 6x9's in the doors,( can't remember how i got those in there, not to mention that they fired right into the front seats of the passenger and driver!)  pioneer 6.5's in the rear. power wire was 12 guage and had about 10 strands of wire in it. the box was wired as a "steal all install", simply unplugged the box and took it in for the night.( the days before i knew alarm installs) 

     1981 cutlass supreme 4-door.  sony face off, 25x4 watts, alpine 3.5, pioneer 6x9's w/adaptors, custom built box that was the home of two pioneer 12" subs, 4channel Jensen amp(the one that was blue and yellow) and three 1/2 farad caps from the nearest electronics outlet. also had a Hornet 720t alarm w/ keyless, power trunk, column lock, and "the club"!
