Yes, there are 3 plugs. If you have the NON-JBL radio, only 2 of those plugs will be hooked up. And only those 2 will be needed for ANY after-market deck. Here's your need-to-know info for the wiring harness:Omega Man said:The picture you show in this thread only shows 2 plastic electrical plugs coming out of your dash. Mine has three! I have a pioneer premier model 680 receiver. Can you tell me where you got your wiring kit? I need one that is hopefully plug and play.
That's odd. My plastic trim pieces matched up with the brackets, mounting holes-wise.Omega Man said:I stayed up until 1:30 a.m. this morning installing my stereo. It was an absolute nightmare. I used the Japanese version of the installation kit. The two narrow plastic trim pieces that fit on either side of the DIN assemblies did not match up with the brackets. I had to use a hot knife to carve out a piece of the plastic and then I had to use a drill to cut one of the holes bigger.
Yes, there is a plastic "stock speaker rest" that protrudes from the door panels. It encompasses the stock speaker grille on the inside. It is there to allow the stock speakers to form a "sound tunnel" bridge from the stock speaker to the speaker grille.andrewcj said:This thread may be old to resurrect, but I've been chatting with Crutchfield and it seems like their information is incorrect. They are saying the limitation is the mounting height because speakers will hit the grill. However, with a 1" spacer working, this obviously isn't the case. The real problem is the mounting depth, where deeper than stock speakers will interfere with window operation. Is this correct?

Another question, is it mostly airtight behind the speakers? Are they basically in a metal enclosure?
Sure. The thickness of the MDF that you'll need will depend on the MAX mounting height of your tweeters. Being that I wanted my tweets to aim towards the windshield, I used the angle mounts that came with my Boston tweets. You may not want your tweets to aim towards the windshield. It's all personal preference. However, I'm very pleased with the results vs. aiming them directly outward.farnorthdriver said:Hi rscotta831,
You mentioned you using MDF for mounting your tweeters.
If you get around to it, could you write up a few guidelines for what you did using the MDF for the tweeter install?
