I finally found a place that I will let touch my car! Great feeling! Well,a while back I sat down with Clay @ KKA and we talked about Hi end systems and what he and his shop could do for me. All I can say is wow!! Very Knowledgable and full of great ideas! For me..its super nice to walk into a shop and see nothing but ...Porsches, GT-40's, Bentleys, and Tons of Audis...Helps set my mind at ease knowing these are the types of cars they work on all the time and the care thats given to them.Anyway, I am super happy with the progress that has been made thus far and here are a few pics of the start of the project.Can't wait until its finished! Check back on this thread as I will update with more pics and the finished product.

Couple stats of whats going in the ride. This is for sure going to be the highest end Audio system I have ever had in any of my cars.I'am Sooo Stoked!
We decided for the Amp and the mids and highs to go with Zapco gear.
Amp = Zapco DC650.6
Fronts(seperates) = Zapco RH-13.2
Rear (seperates also) = Zapco RB-16.2
Subs = 2 Alumapro Alchemy MX 10's
Head unit = No sure yet. but it will be a Nav unit. Alpine 205or possibly the Kenwood 7100
Couple links of the products and the shop

Just got my audio system install in my car a few days ago. Never would think that a place like best buy would be good. I had a friend with a audi install my system, but for some reason the amp blew (due to the fact i blasted the bass levels) but anyway I had best buy check it out and they gutted all the old wires out of my car and reinstalled my new amp, subs & radio for just 60$
I'll post some pics of the neon's i put up in my box tonight.

I'am glad you happy with your set up..but there is no way I would EVER let Best Buy touch my ride! What your looking for and what I am looking for are 2 totally different things.When I say "custom" I really mean it. No offence but,I am not trying to just throw a box in it.

Does anybody know if someone sells replicas of those Porsche wheels? I saw them on a Targa 4 at the dealer and I think they would look killer on a dropped B6. I did notice that they were a $3700 option, though... [eek]

By the way, nice ride! Let us know how it sounds.

nice wires just running from out under the box....you could try and hide those for a cleaner look..

but maybe thats just me, i hate having any wires showing....your headunit with the wire connected to the ipod completely visible would piss me off.

Ya I know exactly what you mean... having wires showing, Can't stand it myself. I like things to be clean and hidden. Just don't understand, you guys aren't content with the stock bose system... I love it!

i hid the two wires by my sub box now, but since the radio i got has a front aux input, i might as well use it.... lol

I think I've seen your car sitting outside their shop, they always have really nice stuff there. I've never been inside though, just drive by it all the time because I work at the VW dealer down the street. The install is looking good[up].

What are they going to do with all that wasted space on the sides of the enclosure? Looks like they could have made it half the depth and twice as wide and still had more internal volume.
