    Cool New JVC Head unit installed

    Well I decided to go ahead and up grade my head unit and got a JVC R860 installed I went with this model primarily because I don't want to get big touch screen and have it stolen .. I got to keep my dash controls with an extra wire harness and since i know that a new head unit is not going to make my cars stereo be any louder I also had them install an RF punch 300x amp..My stock speakers wont last much longer with this amp running to them although it is set real low but still as of now my sound system is 50% louder then it used to be. Next month or so ill have them go ahead and install new speakers just have to wait till next payday. Oh and I like the color blue

    Looks good! You have the correct floor console I see. I have the "right hand drive" floor console in my Mirage. Pass key and heated switch location on the right hand side and the storage bin on the left !

    We got 2 pairs of Pioneer TSA1685r ($45/pr+tax+free ship @walmart) and even with Mitsu head they sound awesome, much louder and clearer then OEMs! no surprise they are top pic at toptenreviews.
