SPeaking about Bose.. my Avant came with an OEM built in Bose amp and subwoofer assembly in the left hind corner. Awesome sound. The previous owner put in a JVC headunit as well but never wired it up correctly... imagine my surprise when I hooked it up as it should be :D

Something like this.

Speedster:
Ipod set up................JBL 5 1/4 GTO's up front, soon to be moved to the kick panels, Clarion amp, GTO 8" sub, very wicked for a drop top.

Same set up, just with a pioneer ipod HU, almost done..........100% of the boot still useable and I still have my spare. Just waiting on new carpets.

In the DarkSide I listen to the Sounds of Silence as all the audio equipment is GONE! It allows me to better appreciate the harmonious sounds coming from the Force which sounds like this

A finely tuned air cooled flat for with a non-standard silencer (oxymoron) is by far more superior than any sound sytem

I dunno, stock exhaust whistle going under a bridge or through a tunnel rates higher for me.

When my bug is licensed and on the road one day, I will install my sound, that has been patiently waiting, and post pics, stealth install is planned. 2 x 6x9 pioneers, 1 x 10"pioneer sub (10" give better base over a larger range imho than say a 12"or a 15").
4 x 100watt rms amp, sony headunit and a pair of 100watt tweeters.

Anyone know where I can get the bracket to fit the radio in the glovebox ?
