Excellent work! I wish I had seen this post yesterday--I ended up ohming out the rear tweeters to finish my install.

How is your system sounding? I'm very pleased with my results--it's the best sounding system I've had in a car and I'm happy with the stock HU now that everything else is upgraded.

It's all sounding great except im having trouble getting the left front woofer to play sometimes. Every other speaker in the car is working though and the sound is full and clear. The subs don't overpower the inside of the car, so the full range is even and .. yea. I love it. <3

I still need to have the HU mounted in right. I have the cover and trim back on the car, but the HU still sticks out a little too far and it's not clean looking. I'll run it by a shop sometime next week and have them fix it. I've done enough.
