Ok, so avalons suck

theres no wiring kit to work on 95/96 since its some fudged up harmon-motive amp with 4 inch bass reflex speaker pods in a skeleton door

so everything has to be hard wired to the passenger kick, and youre stuck using 4 inch drivers in all the doors, maybe squeezing in a small 5.25 if you're lucky

well, since it came with hardon kardon crap in it, might as well do it right, eh?

2 sets p660 (front components)

1 set p662 (rear coax)

2 gto1004 (i know, spare channel, got it, more 6.5's coming sometime)

1 gto14001 (1500rms of sub)

2 p1222 subs

figure thats enough harmon junk to make it good, as for the other stuff going in:

pioneer deh-p690ub (becoming avic-f90 when i can get my hands on it)

irragi 200a alt

hella monster 0 guage

hella monster 4 guage

viper 5900 so I know when someone is trying to steal all this junk

kintek hc600 in trunk

kintek hc1800 underhood when it arrives

rockford power 4inch 2 ways friom the old set up, i guess it could be funny to just turn the amps on while its sounding like shit through 4 inchers

and I know the trunk is horrendous, any ideas are nice, because I'm not too creative, but this is mainly focusing on the interior.

now for pictures....

other tweeters go in the center vents, figure it gives somewhat of a center channel feeling, plus its not so conspicuous and was retardedly simple, took all of an hour start to finish to pull apart, build, wire, and have working

they're in there, cant see em tho, vents still work, still move and turn and have air, just much louder now. i know its missing a louvre, i had a gps there, hit a pothole in harlem, and it snapped right off

figured i should test fit, the fronts are kinda tight for the grills, so either one side is getting bondoed out or the grill is getting shaved a bit on the inside, considering how lazy i am, some plastic is gonna meet the angle grinder, speakers sit suprisingly flush all around though, cept for one rear one where the resin didnt soak through and a huge chunk of fleece and glass came off while grinding the holes open
