2005 WK audio upgrade - have you done this??
I am in the middle of upgrading my audio system (factory Boston Acoustics w/amp) and am looking for experiences from anyone who has upgraded to a system with component speakers and amps/subs.
I've got the rear speakers mounted. Since the harnesses have connectors where they route through the sheet metal, I drilled holes in the door-side connectors that attach to the b-pillar sheet metal to run the speaker wire along with the factory wires.
Just got to the front door wire routing though and need to figure out those connectors - inside the cabin has a round grommet that I've never seen before. Anybody run speaker wire to their WK front speakers? Any tips on getting into the boot between front doors and body?
Also struggling with where to mount the passenger side crossovers. The driver side ones I put on the topside of the knee bolster, under the steering column. Plenty of room and easy access! However on the passenger side, only opportunities I see available are behind the cowl trim, where some of the mounting screws might be forced to screw into body sealant. Big deal, I dunno? Other option is in the door on the backside of the trim panel. Not-so-easy access. I am not expecting to need to get to the crossovers all the time, but would like to have the access if possible. Anyone found any good spots?
The subs and amp mounting locations I haven't figured out either - I don't want to give up too much cargo space. I know I can't really have it both ways though. Anybody have any pictures of sub/amp installations that keep cargo space in mind? I am putting two 10" subs, plus two amps in.
Would appreciate any past experiences you have had!
