    What are these speakers and do they have matching tweeters for the a-pillars ?

    They look so much better than the standard fit ones.

    Headunit: Pioneer 2Din AVH 3300BT
    Front Speakers: Focal K2 Power 165KR
    Sub: 1x Focal 27V1 10"
    Amp: 1x Focal FPS4.160


    For tweeters I have no idea if you can find some. This is not my car, its a friend from Portugal.

    I have got an amp with a high level input. Basically all I did was run a +/- from both rear speakers to the amp. Then got the power from the battery (dead easy with it being in the boot) then run the earth to the cars body. Then I got the remote lead run from the cigarette lighter feed. And bobs your uncle!! All from the standard unit. Sounds good, and only have my bass set at 2 so pressure is taken off the door speakers.

    Hello friends
    just wanted to know how to stretch wires from the battery to the passenger compartment, to feed the AMP?

    The way i did it was if you lift up the bonnet there is a mesh plastic just below the windscreen on the right hand side. If you lift that up the is a gromit there that you can feed it through and it comes out behind the glove box. Took a while to get it through but its worth it!

    The Pioneer headunit looks great in that facia surround - looks spot on where did you get it from? Is it carbon wrapped or something?

    Morning All,

    I have been reading through this post, and that setup looks amazing! I am also looking at having something similar so that i do not loose my boot space!

    I am curious, I have searched literally EVERYWHERE and ebay clearly doesnt sell everything as i cannot seem to find the fascia that you have installed in the UK :( . Is this the Fascia you have here > I cant post URL's yet so i cannot include the first bit but its the krossover website :( /product_info.php?cPath=61&products_id=127 I can't see any images to confirm :s

    Loving the craftsmanship that must have been involved in making the boot layout. How did you secure every down in the boot? Where you able to keep the spare wheel?
