Very nice. How does it sound at higher volumes? Do you think they need more power or not really?

It sounds really nice, I honestly wish I could make a video where you can see the difference, might have a friend with stock hifi come by and I will make a video if it can be captured. You can hear the rears distort a bit, but the new front mids and tweeters sound amazing, you can tell the HUGE difference.

Last night started on the wiring harness, not a good idea to work on a car when its freezing out ha.. But found what each pin does, will start wiring up the 360.3 this weekend, so close to being done!

Yes sir and I spoke to the guy and the price is awesome. I'm going to be ordering once my stock speakers die probably. Tomorrow i'm going to be wiring in the amp I ordered. I got the technic hifi harness so everything should be easy and plug and play though

so I have been running it with the stock amp and the sound is very nice. I am very impressed with how these speaker perform. The sound is so clean compared to what it was stock. I am in the process of making my harness and wow working out in a cold garage is no fun. Just bought one of those garage heater things and going to wire up the 360.3, and then run some test with that and then run the amp.. I think im pretty dumb for doing all these changes and testing, but hey the car is in storage so why not ha

Did you get a chance to finish wiring up the amp yet? How are the underseat woofers compared to the stock?

working on finishing it up this weekend, been really busy with work. Pretty close though. The subwoofer has a nice punch to it, currently driving around I can only go 1/2 way up, more than that my ears start to hurt from how loud they are.

Ok just wanted to check in since I might be grabbing the MBquarts. Curious as to how much of a real difference you notice over the oem speakers. Also would love a video whenever you have it all done if possible, if not I understand

I thought I posted something, I will have something for you tonight

UPDATE

Its been sometime since I updated this thread, here is what I have been doing. I have been messing around with my friends 3D scanner and 3D printer to come up with a PNP solution. I know there is the Technic solution but I want to build my own and also I plan on running wires to the center channel.

Here is the headache


Won't show off the plug until I get it 100 percent.

Wiring up the 360.3 this weekend, and will update with data from testing stock amp and 360.3

Great looking install.

I'm also in Chicago, and just had the MusicarNW Level 3 installed...would love to compare the SQ of the two setups, as well as meet your installer. I've been trying to find someone locally for the last 6yrs that does SQ tuning.
