Haven't come across any audio wiring diagrams or installation docs for our B17. Anyone have a copy or pics if you've already went through a speaker\radio upgrade? Looking to upgrade my speakers with components and add a alpine ktp-445 amp http://www.alpine-usa.com/product/view/ktp-445u/
So checked in with Crutchfield and they dont have install diagrams for our cars yet for the public, but they do internally. Just need to give them a ring and they will walk you through it (removal of radio and door trim as well).
Critical Audio - Just to be sure this is for the 2013 sentra (6 speaker non bose) right? I ask because i only see front pair and rear pair speaker connections, but no tweeters.
Also, since i'm only looking to add an amp with speakers, and keep the Nav I was thinking of using a reverse and standard (ie male and female) wiring harness, to avoid splicing the oem harness, similar to the below link. However some threads mention concerns with these harnesses not containing the steering and AUX pins\wires. Is there any particular reverse and standard wire harness you worked with to stream line the install?
Nice, I couldn't find the frequency range for those on the site. Im sure they go low though. Im going with the alpine I meamtiom in the thread earlier which is a decent 45rms, you?
things to consider per my observation of our vehicle. There are two trunk bars that site directly below the rear 6x9's which may require me to add a small spacer. Probably a 1/4 mdf cutout so it doesn't hit the bars. the oem speaker grills may be too low to the speakers. Also cause the speaker cover is an odd shape Im unable to find a direct fit, unless I find the Bose grills which look like they're taller and sturdier. Thoughts?
I could'nt either but I changed my mind. I change build more than I do underwear I swear lol. I can be fast with this car so I want an sq system.
Pro 6.5's front and back with matching tweeters Pro Series
The amp I'm gonna get for my highs and subs check out the thd. Ultimate SQ
I've always wanted to try the sa 8. Powerful little bastards with some low fs. SA Series
Do you already have that amp? I ask cuz audiopipe is great for a bang for the buck amp. They're pretty powerful and clean and come at a good price. Specially I like the 4 channel 360.
I saw the trunk bars but I think it'll fit most stock speakers. I have a set of kickers I wanna put in temporarily so ill find out then. The covers I don't really care extremely too much about. If they fit ill use them to keep the stock look but if not I'm just gonna use the covers that comes with the speakers. And I can't find anything out about the Bose system. I'm pretty sure the 2 extra speakers are tweeters in the rear but I wanna find out the location so I can put two there too. I just looked for the covera and can't fins them for sale. But thats defiantly an idea if you want the all stock look. Could even get the fronts to match.
If it's anything like my wife's 6speaker non bose then it's the receiver that's proving the wattage no separate or additional amp.
No i haven't bought the alpine amp, but the main reason is the ability to just tap into the fuse box rather than drill my firewall and tap my battery for power. Simpler install but no doubt im sure not as good as a beefier amp.
However I can say it's pretty impressive in my wife's car with the same setup FYI.
That's what I was affraid of. Yeah just about any amp is better than the head unit. Sounds like you've got a plan. I would'nt run much over a 200 rms amp on the fuse panel. Those wire are pretty small so its easy to choke to power to the amp. I'm thinking about trying to run the power wire under the car and come through an existing hole of one exists or make a tiny hole in a remote unseen location.
I just looked at that amp. That little thing is cool lol when said amp I was automatically thinking a regular amp. You'll defiantly notice a different. Only question is, is how clean is that power. The problem with stock head units is that they're a distorted power (or thats what I'm used to but I've never bought something this new either). Not sure if this would help clean it up or just boost the distorted power.
