Re: NEW STEREO QUE:
In highschool somebody stole a broken tape deck and 2 POS 6x9's out of my sami. Insurance gave me 900 bucks, i had maybe 2 bucks in the whole stereo and that was jus for wire.
Anways, before i made it a trail rig i reinstalled a stereo and here is what i did.
For subs i used 1 8" kenwood powered sub. Hit as hard as 2 fosgate 10's. I used 1/2 cable and padlocked it to the rollbar.
The tailgate is hollow and divided into 3 sections. I used 3/4" birch plywood as the front of the box and used the tailgate sections for the back and sides. I put 2 pioneer 6x9 4way unbreakables in it.
In the front i ran 2 6 1/2" pioneer unbreakable 2 ways.
For a deck i used a JVC tape deck (detachable faces, are awesome) with a JVC cd changer that i mounted under the drivers side seat. The deck was bolted to the dash and took me a 30 minutes to get it out and i knew how it was put in.
I did 3 barrel rolls and an endo and it NEVER SKIPPED.
I ran no amps, and it hurt to sit inside even tho it has a soft top. Remember, you will lose sound quality with a softop.
As far as thieves. All locks do is keep an honest person honest. If they want it, theyre gonna get it. But, they never got mine.
Hope this helps,
