    Believe me, u won't miss the old sound AT ALL ! Most probably u'll find most of the speakers already teared apart.

    And yes, here is my setup:
    Attachment 59508
    Another one for the interior:
    Attachment 59509

    I use a laptop in the glovebox:
    Attachment 59510

    It wasn't a hot day
    Attachment 59511

    I'm still working on the GPS though .. what do u use for GPS ? any good maps for Egypt ?!

    lets say the amplifier is 4 channels

    two of them will go to the subwoofer
    how can you connect the four speakers to the two channels ?

    about the gps its the only step left i still cant find proper software

    The amplifier have 4 inputs (2 front and 2 rear) and 4 outputs plus a bridged output.
    Now, u have one line coming out of the laptop, u have to split every channel into two using this "Y" channel splitter

    Those 4 channels will go into the input of the amplifier.

    The output is divided into front and rear. Now u have two options:
    1- Connect all 4 speakers to the front and enable the HPF on the front. And connect your subwoofer bridged to the rear output and enable LPF.
    2- connect the front speakers to the front output + enable HPF, and connect the rear speakers and the subwoofer bridged to the rear. U can use a capacitor before the subwoofer to act like a LPF to avoid distorted bass.

    I am using the 1st setup and I'm happy with it. U can always control the gain of the front and the back separately from the ampl.
    btw my amplifier is a sony xplode not kenwood. I'm using this one.

    do you have any aux in sockets?
    or perhaps you know where people would get such a thing to run it from the dash into the line in?
    something like this, but just a socket :P with a pigtale of 3.5mm jack?
