I just wanted to say thanks for writing up this DIY! I had a little different setup as usual, but using your post as a reference helped me out significantly.

Thanks guys! I'm glad I could be of some help.

Mods: Is there any way we can move this to the DIY section so it doesn't get lost? I would like other people to be able to find it easily.

This one should be a sticky. (Great DIY for the Newbies)

I'm an audiophile myself and this DIY is the same way I plan to add some Bass to my system. (Once my 2006 Athens Blue 6MT comes in.) Only difference is that I'm planning on matching the same system output as the stock system. I will run a woofer in the 200-250 RMS power range and an Amp that matches or sligthly over powers the woofer. (Note: For the purest Bass its always best to run at 4ohms and stay in RMS power or slightly over power the woofer. Subs tend to distort and blow faster when under powered.) After installing the Sub all that's needed to get the perfect balance is to buy yourself a sound meter cheap at RadioShack and center stage it to the front of the vehicle. (Between Driver and Passenger for overall uniformity or slightly ahead of both for proper front staging.) Then chose a decent volume level and leave it there. Now only run the stock portion of your system. After this make a note of the db that your system was at on that specific volume setting follow by running the sub alone. (Unplug the stock Amp but leave Sub.) Match the sub to the overall system db at same volume. Your done. Now your Sub is perfectly matched to your stock system. For the Hip Hoper in yah I recommend using a 12" and for the rest of you stick to the 10". One woofer of either size will be more than sufficient. Now if you really want to be a picky bastard as I am then youll adjust all your speakers to match the sound meter and then setup the Sub.

Oh yeah I also recommend all of you to get at least a Farad Cap. (1 Farad would be best though.)

Damnit, almost forgot... To run the sound test use a Sound Testing CD. You can get these at most music stores.

Once again, great job DR6

Awesome writeup. I want to do the same to my '03 sedan, but I'm missing a few of the wires that you mention.

Specifically, I don't have a purple or teal wire.

Where can I find information on what wires I need to splice into on an '03 model sedan?

Thanks!

Thanks for the compliments guys.

As for the sedan wiring, I remember that someone had a previous post that outlined what the colors were on the sedan. It's also in the service manual but I can't seem to find a link to it (could only find the coupe manual). Try a search for either on this message board and via google and it should come up pretty easy. Good luck with the install!

my 500/5 with stock speakers sounded horrible. the stock speakers really depend on the equalization contributed by the bose amp to sound anywhere near acceptable.
