Here are a few older installs 97 Volvo 850. It was probably one of the more easier installs I have done. Here are some picks of the install.

The loot


The wiring harnesses getting ready to be all soldered


The hole for usb port


The usb port


The sirius radio power plug lets mod it a little


Open it up


Solder it up


Heat shrink it all ready for being wired behind the dash after being wrapped in electrical tape.


Location of sat radio needs some mounting

This one was a big one I will quote his review so you can read it.
So Matt helped me install a kickass system in my 2008 Accord. It took a couple of days and a lot of driving but it was definitely worth it. Matt is a chill guy and we got along well right from the start.

I pulled into his driveway on Saturday morning a little before 8am and he had all of his tools and supplies laid out and ready to go.

We installed:
JL C5-650 components in front
JL C5-650x coaxials in rear
JL Slash 300/4v2 amp
Infinity 10" Basslink
JL CleanSweep
MTX Re-Q
Dynamat Xtreme on floor, doors, rear deck and under back seat

We started off by stripping the interior of the car:


Then we jumped right into laying down the Dynamat .. here is the passenger's-side floor:


Door before Dynamat


Door after Dynamat


Fuse holder mounted


Cleansweep wired up, not yet secured


Amp being wired up


One of the rear crossovers mounted


Finished!!



Overall it took us about 25 hours spread out over 4 days (with breaks and stuff). Matt made the two and a half hour drive up to my place twice without hesitation. He did great work and I learned a lot along the way .. if you need any car audio stuff done, contact matt (AIM reimermatt), you won't regret it.

Default Questions? This is your go to guy!

I cant recommend Matt enough. I started off having a few questions, and he answered them without hesitation. Im suprised how patient he was with me, since im a total newb. He explained everything from OHM, RMS, bridging, wiring, etc. Its obvious, he has a lot of experience under his belt and he know his stuff. He is more than willing to help. Any questions on installations, well this is your guy! Also take a look at some of his previous work at the other forums, and they look pretty solid. Thanks again Matt!

Default Revo Sys 7 double din DVD/Carputer

Install any one of these in a 350/370Z? Is this system sound good or best for a carputer?

Are 5.1 surrond systems in cars over-rated?

Install any of what?
Yes 5.1 systems are way overrated in a car there is no reason for them. Plus true Sound Quality setups are just front speakers and a sub or 2. And even putting one in a Z would completely be pointless there is no acoustic room for a surround effect in that car. Also when is someone going to sit in there car and watch a entire dvd? I mean I see no reason to have 5.1 surround sound in a car. Not telling you that it can not be done but it is not cheap and not easy to setup either.

Did this one a few years ago but the guy was getting ready to sell it so I snapped some pics.
Here is an older install I did it was about 2 years ago. The car was a 96 Vw Jetta it was my 3rd time doing head rest tvs it was very tricky and still is to me lol. But here are some picks.

Front Doors


Head units "didn't do the fiberglass but and getting ready to learn it"


Rear tv's



Rear Deck infinitys don't ask me why he wanted them in the back and the polks in the front.


Cd changer


It also had 2 hifoinic amps mounted to the rear seats and the wires tucked threw the seat itself. There was also a box with 2 kikcer l5's. It was nice to bad I did not get picks of them.

Matt, I really like how well organized you are for your installs. It shows attention to detail which any customer wants to see. Your installs prove you know your sh*T, but IMHO you really gotta work on your builds. Nothing like a CLEAN install/build to compliment the brains it takes to properly install and "calibrate" a system ya know. Aesthetically, it leaves a little to be desired. SQ is where I'm sure you make that up though.
