    Last break i cleaned up the stereo install and ran the Amp off high-level inputs instead of straight off the ipod so now my subs have proper volume control and radio and cd's play through subs as well.
    Installed JL Audio 6.5 speakers in adaptors all round and put some sound-deadening along the rear firewall and a little behind the rear speakers.

    Pulled apart


    Sound deadening in and wiring modded


    Finished product in the rear. Fire extinguisher is a safety thing. Not only for my car but anyone elses. Last car i had an extinguisher in i ended up using it on a friends car at the drags before a major under-bonnet fire took hold.




    Stock compared to new. Factory were 5x7 so adaptors were needed.


    New speakers in doors. Sound awesome compared to the factory garbage. Was going to get Alpine TypeS but when i heard these straight after my mind was made up.

    So now the setup is.
    2x 12inch Sony Subs in square boxes
    4x 6.5 JL Audio C2-650x speakers
    1x Pioneer 2 channel 200wrms amp

          Oh lawdy, Lovin' it.

          Out of curiosity how does it drive? The stock xr6/xr6t utes drive so nicely but how does your monster go? No match for my rodeo of course (joke) *goes and cries in corner*
          Drove a BF6sp auto for work the other day and boy is it leaps and bounds ahead of the BA 4sp, these cars are probably the only car I've driven that still have that 'something more' you usually only get in a manual, then again I've only been on the roads legally for 2 years.

            You can drive it around like normal and apart from the slightly louder exhaust and the loud induction sound you wouldnt pick it as having over 400hp at the wheels.
            I definitely wanted a 6spd auto over the BA 4speed. The 4spd usually dont last long with over 300kw and even when rebuilt they are a bit iffy.
            With the coilovers and swaybar its more stiff then standard but i prefer that. I recently raised it up a little so its more friendly to drive around town with speed bumps etc.





            And the latest addition, aftermarket FPR mounted to standard rail.

                People ask why i bought a ute, do you use it as a ute.
                Yes.
                Friday it had the 323's new motor in it and this weekend had the back full of tyres and tools and a car on the back.

                    Was really good on the flat, hovering in the 10s. But where i was going was up and down and 2 steep ranges so it jumped up for the hills. Didnt bother the car at all.
