    Well one of my dealers goofed. They drove somewhere far to go get a dealer trade vehicle and had previously told the customer that it was equipped with the Sony system. When they came back with it they discovered that it does not. They contacted me to come up with something that would sound like the Sony so I created five different system designs and sent them to the customer. His choices were systems by Rockford Fosgate, Kenwood, Pioneer, Sony and JBL. I originally was going to have everything by JBL but my distributor was out of stock on some pieces and after talking with the customer we decided on switching to Infinity for the speakers and keeping the JBL amp due to the size. The Infinity Reference 5-channel amp is a couple inches larger than the JBL and with placement behind the seat I wanted to keep as small as I could.

    The layout starts with the factory six disk radio with SYNC. It will go into the Cashe COE6 six channel line output convertor. This unit will allow us to drive the 5-channel JBL GTO-5EZ amp with the factory radio. It also is a live driver with a 9 volt output to really boost the signal to the amp. The amp will be driving a single Infinity Reference Series 1062W dual voice coil 10 inch sub. Up front it will be driving a set of the Infinity Reference Series 6030cs 6-1/2 components and a set of the 6832cf Reference Series 6x8 coaxials.

    I'll try to post pictures along the way for you all. Hopefully some of my photos and tricks can help you do-it-yourselfers.

    Ding, Ding, Ding....Winner

    I have to make adapters for the 6-1/2 to fit in the 6x8 and these work great. At only 2 bucks each they work great to cut with my Dremel while I hold onto them with the handle. Beats using wood or masonite like I used before.

    I've been so busy with work and family stuff the past few days I haven't had any time to post anything so finally I got a break.

    I started on the truck at about 10:30 am and got done with it at about 8:30pm. It was soooo hot and muggy in the middle of the dealership parking lot. The temperature topped out at 101. We had a rain the night before and then it kept lightly sprinkling on me for the first half of the day. When the sun come out the humidity shot through the roof. I drank almost three gallons of water due to sweating it all out.

    The system - I had to change the sub out for a Realm 12" shallow sub due to the box not being deep enough for the Infinity Sub.
