Kenwood KFC-1654. Actually 4-incher of the same came bundled with the HU, swapped with 6 incher of the same. Had to pay extra. Wasn't much into car audio then, else would have opted for something better. Still this sounds good, with great mid range clarity.

LED turn indicator/side marker. Amber and white work independently when operated independently. White will alternate with amber when both are on. Simple relay technique. Clear lens side indicator from Last generation old Zen.

ICE upgrade

Old Kenwood 5-1/4 inch speaker. Was a good midrange speaker. Jars at mid volumes.

2013-09-30 11-59-51.jpg


JBL GT6-S266 removed from Grey Skid

2013-09-30 13-17-32.jpg


Grille was 2 piece. Used the frame alone so that screw won't screw up the speaker [evil]. Grille couldn't be fixed inside door pad. So let it go.

2013-09-30 13-16-56.jpg


55W RMS. No signs of jarring even at full volume.

2013-09-30 13-18-23.jpg


Wrong spacer. 6-inch spacer, 6-1/2-inch speaker.

2013-09-30 11-55-37.jpg


L'il bit mod and it fits.

2013-09-30 11-55-55.jpg


Something everyone will hate. Removing the tarry thing sticking the plastic sheet inside door pad. On right side door, used blade. More than 50% remain. Idea came late, used turpentine and fully removed in 5 min in left door pad.

2013-09-30 10-38-48.jpg


Stock location. Car came with that frame, fits only 5-1/4 speaker. and comes with 3 hole mount.

2013-09-30 10-38-58.jpg


After all cleanup.

2013-09-30 11-10-01.jpg


Damped and installed. Hole in door and spacer was of almost same size, so couldn't drill the door and fix the spacer. Instead made custom clamps out of some metal strips.

2013-09-30 13-21-13.jpg


Final.

Your DIY's and perfection can't be matched at all ! Great work done..

Do post more details of the side indicators.
It's basically old Zen, last type's side indicator. Same as Estilo's with clear cover.
One set of amber for indicator and one set of white for side marker. Side marker is connected via a relay such that relay cuts the signal when indicator is on. Amber fed directly to indicator. Simple [evil]


Here is the quick demo video.
