decided i needed a new stereo so went out and bought a pioneer DEH-4150UB
and the pocket to go under it



the reason i got the rear mount USB is for my 4gig Iriver MP3 player that will be stashed away out of sight as this unit controls everything on it and keeps it charged at alll times also turns it on
to turn it off when no power supplied for 5 min turns off automatic

wont be putting it in for a while untill i get the steering wheel control module and the RCA leads for the rear sub, that will be going in (i know it has factory subs but i want more ) should be all good when everything arrives will keep you posted

well finally have a sub box
specs for this box are as follows

10" venom 200w rms subwoofer
in custom box to suit speaker
out side dimensions are
400mm across
300mm high
220mm deep


all up cost $130 for all materials to build it

took approximately 6 hours to build box seal it and carpet it
just need to make edges a bit neater as this was the first time making one of these.
will just get some brushed stainless steel and make a border around front edge.

anyway heres the pics so far







and yes i need to dust the dvd player lol

Nice Dave Cool some alloy or stainless angle around the edges of the box will finish that set up off nicely (glue it on, dont want to see screws)

just an update on stuff ive been doing



first of all put sub box in boot went for drive and it kept falling over so to
stop this i went to work and made a bracket



this is fixed to the rear of the seat and the sub box



now the box wont move and will be hard to steal if someone decides to try



and the other thing that was done is the new boot light 24x5mm white LED's
in the rear garnish of boot



this serves two purposes sheds light across the floor of boot
and when you raise the spare wheel floor it lights up the tyre well so you can see what your doing at night as the normal boot light is blocked when you raise the floor panel





still have one more lot of these LED's to put in the boot but this time they go in the lid so when you raise the boot they shine down on the boot floor alot brighter than the standard boot light.

just an update on stereo
head deck installed
steering wheel module installed
RCA cable and remote wire all run into boot
only thing left to do is run power cable
find a good spot for the amp and wire it all up
so far all good sounds nice and looks good
had to put the pocket at top or huge gap was noticeable


here are some pics
