    Progression...the Mark Levinson speakers blew; upgraded to kicker components all the way around with 4 ch. amp. Sub sounded terrible as well so I replaced it temporarily with an 8" kicker on a 2 ch.
    USA-Spec is a hard wire iphone/ipod connector...upfront also nefty when i-level goes in keeps the phone charged.

    Amps mounted
    All dynamated...

    How is the sound compared to factory, pm me your parts list i mostly want what ohms you went with. I take it everything is running on aftermarket amps , r u still using the factory head unit? Thanks

    Sound quality from what I can tell is a lot better...considering mine were pretty much blown. All my model numbers are in the first pictures of the audio swap. Yes I kept my factory's nav and with a hard wire USA-Spec for my iphone where I run all my audio through.
    Oh and if you swap speakers to aftermarket you will NEED an amp considering the ohm differences...
    4 channel amp dx400.4 on the components and the dx200.2 for my 8" sub (which I'm going to cut loose or get something custom done concealed like 2 10's or 12's)
