I actually started with a half din (Clarion now Pyle) in the dash. Worked and I could tell that it was holding the system back. Had a custom install done last week moving the radio up high, the A/C system just below and an Infinity beta mid bass driver and tweeter installed where the ashtray had been (2002 Lincoln LSE).

Maintained factory speakers for now, but put the Pyle (which by the way is the Clarion via China manufacturer) 1/2 din in the Lincoln kit pocket to assist the two factory 2 inchers. Facts: Plays DVD-A in PCM, Dolby 5.1 and DTS Has Two SACD modes - HQ is au naturale and is ... more
