Audiocontrol LC2i, this is my LOC and how i'm getting the highs for the comps and the lows for the subs. Best way to integrate to a factory system in my opinion. Also how I tapped the rear B pillar speaker wires for the signal.



Metra Harness


Foxbox and 12" Type R's dual 4 ohm, wired to 2 ohms. I'm going to swap out the alpines for sundown this summer.

Finally finished the build. Put the PHD's in the door above the 6.5 and the staging sounds great.

Great pics of your gear and install. Only thing missing is where you stashed the crossovers for the PHD speakers in your front door.

Speaking of which, are you happy with the PHD component system?

I love the PHD's. Very good speakers. I've had JL, Pioneer, Hertz, Massive Audio, Alpine Type R and I've listened the Hybrid Audio Technologies. The PHD's are my favorite that I've owned, but I would still put the HAT's ahead of them. I've never listened to Morel, Rainbow, or other high end brands, but at the price point for PHD, they are much better than Hertz, Massive, Alpine, Pionner, Kenwood, and JL. I highly recommend them. I'm trying to get a youtube video of the sound quality of just the PHD's but I keep getting copyright notices. But I'm going to do a distance video, once I get a chance. As for the Amps and the PHD's crossovers, I did a temporary install of each. The crossovers are under the driver and passenger seats, not ideal, but I didn't want to put them in the doors. So I had to run two sets of speaker wires to the doors. It works for now and I'm not an audiophile, so I don't mind. Although, I think it's temporary because I want to dynamat the doors and interior. I have 3 amps, a mono to each sub and a 2 channel for the PHD's. They are all behind the back seat. I used the seat risers that came with the fox box, so I can lower my back seats when I want and everything is in the back along the floor. I didn't want to take a picture, truthfully, because I'm embarrassed of the install. It's not clean and I didn't build an amp rack. I did it in a rush and used double sided tape to attach everything to the wall. I'm going to fix it this summer, when I get some time and a better idea of how I want the amp rack to look. But in terms of function it's all there. I can post some pics, but like I said, it's pretty bad.

Great response and thanks.

One question I forgot to ask, were the PHD's 6.5" size a problem to put in? Did you have trim out any of the factory panel or did you buy an adapter to go from the 6x9 over to 6.5?

Also PHD's are actually difficult to buy. There are a few sets on Ebay from a seller in Slovakia. Just wondering if they are genuine given the price point of $300.00. Where did you get your set and associated wiring, adapters etc?

I used adapter plates for the 6.5's into the 6x9 hole. Scosche SA69. I had to trim the hole of the adapter to fit the 6.5 but that wasn't too bad with a dremel. Just go slow and take your time. I bought mine from a vendor on a car audio forum, I'm a member of one. It's a DIY car audio forum. there is another vendor on a different car audio forum too. You could try ebay, I've had success buying gear on ebay. I bought all wiring from KnuKonceptz on ebay. They also have an amazon store. They have great wires and excellent prices.
