    RePost of Pictures

    Alright, so i have finished my install (kind of...) and I am just waiting for the screen to come in. (thursday )

    until then. Here are some pictures to entertain.

    First, My Trunk, i have not shown much this because... I'm Lazy, but here it is... The (Almost) complete trunk

    ***Lost this picture*** ill try and look for it

    Almost everything is done (maybe a changing of the wire configuration) and i just need to bolt in that black box thing... which is duck taped. Its a massive resister according to my research (comprising of typing in the model number online and looking at japanese sites... which i cant read) And its used to kill of a lightening bolt so it does not affect the sound system and electronics in the car (its 3,000,000,000,000 Ohms)


    i havent found a suitable spot to bolt it in yet (where it is may be its final location, but with bolts... not tape) when i do, ill update this thread once again.

    Next, The Speakers:

    If anyone knows anything about the sound system in an impreza, they know its terrible. So, i upgraded.

    *** Lost Picture *** will get a new one soon

    those are the mtx audio tx4001 composite speakers, connected to crossovers and the amp. the tweeters are seperated from the main sub, and although they are only 4 inch Woofers, they produce sound which i would have expected from a 6+ inch Woofers. They are composite and were a great deal at only $140

    * only is relative term


    Next... The Installed computer:



    1/2 lexan covers to computer... basically unbreakable, sits a little farther back than i wanted it to, due to its height it cant get under the seat completely without the seat hitting it, although a couple mods to the seat have mostly fixed the problem.

    It doesnt kill too much legroom... does it?


    P.s. The only wires visible are used to plug into my ipod (rca cables) so that i have something to listen to... i get bored easily.


    Wiring In the Dash:

    I prewired the rear door speakers on the the inside of the dash so i can wire it in 30 seconds incase my rear deck dies... you know... to be safe..

    heres the picture...




    Next: Wiring Inside the Engine Bay

    I wish i had taken pictures when wiring this, there is so much people can learn from it when everything is opened up, but now it is hard to get any pictures of much siginificance....

    anyway, heres a picture of the battery connection and the wire to the fuse

    *** LOST PICTURE ***

    and heres the fuse and the wire going into the tunnel in the chasis (the tunnel enterance is surrounded in green plastic you can see, not really anything else showing.

    *** LOST PICTURE ***


    Next... GPS:

    My gps reciever is in the front windsheild, and its wiring is almost invisible (besides the 2 inches that goto the hub)

    the hub:

    *** LOST PICTURE *** will repost soon

    The Wire on the side:

    *** LOST PICTURE *** will repost soon

    when the door is closed you cant see it

    and to show you how... sneaky it is, heres a closeup... there is no slack ^^

    *** LOST PICTURE *** will repost soon





    so yeha, i had alot more writing before... stupid computer... but alright... ill update this post later
