Current Honda Ridgeline System

Bought this one on EBay of all places.  The car was actually right down the road from me though.  It is a 2006 Ridgeline.  Currently the system is the premium factory system with Navigation.  I plan on adding a single 10", amps and new speakers all around but all I have is the equipment so far.  

Cam's Pontiac GTO - Sold!

This is my second new car.  It is a 2004 Pontiac GTO and I love it. Nothing says Cameron like a Corvette engine in a super comfortable car.  Listed below is the sound setup. If you have any car stereo questions just ask. I am not an expert, but I have been doing it long enough to know a thing or two.

Final GTO System

Here is the the system that I installed.  I have been trying to distill my installs to fewer components.  Getting closer each time..  

  1. Two JL Audio 10W6s 10" subs in two enclosures.  The enclosures are custom fiberglass.
  2. Adire Audio Koda components mounted in the front stock locations
  3. Image Dynamics CXS62 2ohm components mounted in the rear stock location
  4. Alpine CDA-9835 head unit.  Another great head unit.
  5. Alpine HDA-5460 16GB MP3 player.  This connects directly to the head unit and is super sweet.

  7. Directed DEI 1200/5 5 channel amp with a Class D sub channel
