Thanks for the feedback on the Alpine upgrade! I've contacted some dealers here in Qld to try and do the same thing but the prices I've been quoted range from a crazy $1500 to $1750 or the cheapest at $720 for labour if I provide the kit.
Two of them were adamant I wouldn't need recoding either (I contacted about 5). Now going by your experience I shouldn't let them get away with NOT recoding should I?
Still $1500 is pretty steep for what this is
Also can you post pics of how you "napped" off the Alpine SPS-410 speaker mounting prong for your rear speakers? Also maybe a pic of the finished installation if you have a chance?? Thinking of also doing the same
Thanks in advance!
