    Just wondering what ICE setup you have in your car, even if its only a headunit and factory speakers I'm interested to see what everyones got!

    I have;

    Kenwood KDC-4031 HU :thumbsup:
    Infinity 6.5" 6500cs Components
    Infinity 9603i 6x9's
    JBL GTO 75.4 104 rms x 4 amp

    Only the headunit is installed at the moment, but the components are going to be fitted in my Yaris' front door with the tweeters mounted in the dash speaker mounts. the 6x9's are going on a custom made MDF shelf where my factory parcel shelf is at the moment, with the amp mounted on the back of the seats.

    Its my first ever install and its been done on a shoe-string budget (£300 total for the lot), so whatcha got and how much u spent?

    Don't know model numbers but have Alpine Mini-Disc Head-Unit + 6CD changer. Pioneer 3-ways in all four doors. Pair Pioneer 12" 1kw subs all running from Rockford Fosgate amps. Got Pioneer gear on a deal and for once I've avoided a bout of chronic upgraditis and just left it all as is. Sounds a bit poor though TBH. My last car had JL sub on Alpine V12 amp, same H/U and infinity components (my favorite speakers!) and sounded rockin' (but cost a fortune). Wish I never sold that sub on now...

    Anyone built a PC into their car yet??? I keep making a start with spares then getting fudged off with yet another pointless half-finished project to add to the list lol

    Yeah was thinking Mini-Mac or even laptop parts based system. I put all this stuff in my car almost two years ago with the intention of using it as a stopgap once I recovered from buying the car itself! With my other cars I would reinstall/upgrade about every four months, but its been two years now! Powercaps this, soundproofing that, amplifiers up the jacksie, all in a car worth about the same as one speaker!!!

    We should get some images in this thread though, could do with some inspiration to upgrade :devil:

    Oh what I wouldn't do for a 3.2 - a guy near me has a GTA sportwagon in black and it looks soooo much better than I thought it would. However the question raises, one of those or the 3.2 V6 GT...

    Suddenly my idea of just swapping out the OEM head unit for something a bit better doesn't seem quite up to the right standard. :blush:

    Nothing really that fancy in my Alfa

    Pioneer DEH-P77MP – Head unit
    Pioneer CDX P670 6 Disc Autochanger
    Infinity 6502i – Rear speakers
    Infinity 6500cs – Front component speakers
    Alpine MRP-M350 Mono Power Amplifier
    Alpine MRP-T130 2 Channel Power Amplifier
    JL Audio 10w2 – Subwoofer
    Pioneer SR100 steering wheel remote

    It's not a massive system but it makes journeys to and from work a whole lot more enjoyable :) It also looks pretty much factory from outside the car and with the head unit fascia removed.

    Has anyone got DVD-A in their car? If so I would be extremely interested in any recommendations or feedback, as I'm thinking of upgrading my Alpine CD gear.

    I have driven both quite a bit and they are both fun around corners...but nothing too difficult to get used to!

    The sheer weight of the engine does not help but they still handle pretty good for a front wheel drive car hauling a big ass engine around!

    Standard double-din Jap ICE

    Kenwood DPX-6000MD

    Gathers GS-6916 speakers front & rear....made by Alpine apparently.

    Thinking about the all-singing all-dancing Pioneer AVIC-HDBT double-din in the near future.
