I just got done upgrading the monsoon system in my Jetta. Later this year I hope to get the kenwood 7015 double din LCD / DVD player and the Nav unit.





















The amp rack is behind the rear seats. Lay them down and you see this:










The music listed in the pictures was from the Sirius connection displaying the song name and artist name. The Keg does a similar thing with displaying ID3 tags on the head unit. (the Keg is kenwoods version of the phatbox. It is licensed from phatnoise.)
The install ran about four full days, maybe a little more. I did the dynamat myself but had a custom car stereo install done by a guy I have worked with in the past. They did a freaking amazing job.
I ended up getting way more than I bargained for with the install due to some schedule mixups at the install shop causing the car to be there for almost two weeks. They built a much nicer sub box and amp rack that I'd initially asked for. The neon I was very skeptical of when they told me they'd thrown that in, but once I saw it I liked it.
If anyone is interested in the specs of the system:
==============================================

Re: (Sawdust)

Nope, this is a VR6. I'll take pictures under the hood if you wish!
Also, if you have any ideas on car alarms, please check my other thread cause I need some help with that.
Thanks!
Edit: I am having to buy an upgraded alt to power the system. I need 208 amps or there abouts. I have tried contacting Dominick Iraggi (i think thats how you spell it) as suggested in the termpro audio forum and here as well but he has not replied to my repeated emails. I think I will go with an Ohio Generator Alt. They have a 180 amp at idle 225 at 2200 rpm alt that fits in the factory alt housing.
Anyone have other Alternator suggestions?

That looks very nice..... I love my set-up, but I think I may have to do a rebuild! BTW: Let me know if you want kenwood items, I may be able to get them cheaper!!! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
