History
About 18 months ago the vehicle went through a full rebuild. I stripped out the interior, sent it to the paint shop for a full colour change and new door rubbers, window rubbers etc, and then when I got it back, I put new carpets, installed a huge stereo, custom made draw slide etc.

Total RMS 2160 Watts

Speakers Front - Sound stream RF60C Reference Splits X2 in custom door trims
Rear - Sound stream Tarantula SST6.5
Sub – Sound stream RW12 Reference Sub X2 in Custom box

Apart from the 2 extra batteries to power the stereo, which are on a isolating switch so I can separate them from the front 2 batteries there is also a Sound stream 40 Farad capacitor to regulate the voltage to the amps

The entire floor from the firewall to the back door has been sound deadened along with the doors

The entire stereo and draw slide were built around the two restraining bolts as I have two young children (Craig 5 & Yvette 3) who are still in car seats

Entertainment for the kids,

There is a JVC DVD player installed in the dash and a drop down screen from the roof, I made panels into the backs of the seats and installed JVC 4” 2 way speakers.
