I've recently taken to ' un-rice-ing ' Shawnas truck. She had friends that tried to help her in good faith that somewhat.. well.. lets say the results of their work were less then stellar ( Damn civic owners! ).
Shes aquired a Fosgate Amp ( 415s ), a pair of 10's ( FOsgate Punch series ), and a set of 5x7's.
She has a FACTORY head unit as of present. Hers was robbed.
I've completely repaired the damage from the robbery and where her friends CUT OFF the factory radio pigtail ( damn cricers! ), rewired her GEM module.. The brass plate under the steeringwheel now has all the bolts holding everything together ( those copper ones that you need to ground it correctly.. ).
Welp.. ' Tis the season ' and I'm feeling like Santa-******. Fat and lazy and thinking about that amp and setting it all up. I'm going to strip out her interrior completly and run her amp wires UNDER the vinal floor instead of leaving them lay between her seats as they presently are ( damn ricers! ).
I already ran a feed of 4ga and a relay for power inside the cab ( was wiring up pillar gauges last week.. why not plan ahead?
). Already has a 130amp altenator as well.
I had a thought and need opinions from some of you audio wierdos. Instead of using LOC's before the amp and having to split the rear feed and add an aditional amp, would it be better to just replicate that fat lazy guy that says ' ho ho ho ' and buy a basic MP3 Sony type headunit? I figure they have 4 speakers out ( for 4 5x7 factory speakers ) and an RCA for her sub box. This will also provied a trigger for turning her amp on..
Something basic like that.
This is coming out of MY pocket ( I figured 100$ for a new sony isn't bad ) and I cant get to my motor till her truck is done ( Hence, I need to get this straightened out! ).
