Acura TSX Install with amp, sub, indash screen
This project has been complete for a while, but I just got around to posting the pics. A big "Thanks" to all of you on this forum, there is no way I could have done it without you.
The car is a 2004 Acura TSX without the Nav option. Part of my goal was to install this in a non-destructive way, and I pretty much suceeded with that. I had to drill a few holes in the trunk liner, but otherwise I could remove everything and put the stock parts back. Pics are posted below, but if you are interested in more detail I have more pics with descriptions Here: http://www.vanderwoude.net/gallery/TSX
