Default my cheap system...

tired of the factory cd changer eating my cd's, and not being able to use my ipod so i worked on the F250 the last couple days, ripped the interior apart to install the cheap-o amp from my f150 and expedition... mounted the amp behind the back seat, marked and cut the interior carpet panel/insulation, ran the power, the controller, and the amp turn on wire down the drivers side. only wire you can see is a 2 inch section of the positive cable. the ground i tied into the car seat bolt... all of the RCA cables are ran down the passenger side, everything is hidden and cant tell anything is there... mounted the amp controller under the cup holder on the center console with 3M double sided foam tape, cant tell its there unless you really look down there... behind the seat the only wires you see is the power cables, and amp switch wire, everything else is hidden behind the carpet... the sub is just temporary, its the one from our old expedition, will eventually get the center console sub enclosure that JL audio makes...
just had the dash resting there till the HU cam in

this is the head unit i ordered from crutchfield http://www.crutchfield.com/p_070XDV3....html?tp=20220
the invoice came with the instructions on where to cut/modify the dash to fit. very easy with a dremel and a cut off disk... it took longer to connect the 2 harnesses than it did to modify the dash,
