Went to my Dads this morning after project: new stereo and speakers had a cock up a few weeks back with the 6.5s not fitting in the front doors without seriously modifying the door trims ruining the stock look I’m working on.
Alas that portion of the build is complete.
Kenwood KDC-BT720DAB head unit. If you are skeptical on digital radio wait til you hear the signal quality. No good if you live rural as well but the stations available so far is a bit average but that will change no doubt.
In the doors had to settle for some much smaller KFC-S1056 4 inch 2 ways. Much smaller than the 6.5s I originally snapped up and much different sound quality but a major improvement over the crappy paper comes fitted by our friends at Daihatsu some 25 years ago.
Up the back on the parcel shelf a pair of KENWOOD KFC-X694 6x9 3 ways. The metal strength brackets along the rear panel shelf proved fun as the gap is about 5.75 inches and took a few goes with the jigsaw to fit. It’s a bit ordinary but happy enough to keep it going. Even with the rear speakers going for a few weeks, the sound was heaps better again.
Pics will be around at some point I guess shrugs
Next up (eventually / broken record ) will be shocks and struts to fix the body roll and replace the well worn rears that sag worse than an old mans nutsack
The 6.5s I bought are up for grabs. They are KENWOOD KFC-X174 6.5 inch 3 ways. Paid $140 for them retail for something around the $200 mark. They are unfitted and new condition. Will come with the head unit I pulled out of the car unless unwanted.
Apart from that not much to report on, just over 229Kkms on clock now
