No not that - behave! I cannot
reccomned anything as peoples taste in car audio varies hugely! I am
very impressed with the Harman Karndon system fitted to Mrs Spunagains
ZTT190. My ZT 260 came with the base Kenwood system with Goodmans
speakers which I was not really happy with so here's the route I took!
I fitted a Pioneer DEH P70BT Bluetooth head unit in the ZT260, was pretty straight forward, the microphone fits into the interior light pod (lever off the clear light cover, unscrew the 2 fixing cross head screws and pull out) I split the pioneer microphone case to make as clear a path to the microphone as possible through the lighting pod grille and fixed it with duct tape. I pulled off the trim cover on the A pillar and routed the cable using a thicker cable as a "cable pull" which I could push through from the lighting pod to the top of the 'A' pillar without removing the headlining. The rest I routed under the dash again using a thicker cable as a "pull".
It works very will with my Motorola V3 even at motorway speeds.
Heres how it looks
And a little closer!
Here's the mess I have made of the battery
I fitted the new speakers in the existing
spaces but needed to cut some of the surrounding metal away to
accomodate the depth of the speakers. TI Rich's approach was to
make wooded speaker mounts which is what I should have done but I am
useless at wood working!
So my setup is now:
Pioneer DEH-P70BT CD/MP3 Bluetooth tuner head unit
Infinity Reference 6.5-inch woofers in front doors with infinity crossover and original OEM fit tweeters through the infinity crossover. (Infinity tweeters were too peaky at about 4kHz) (£80 from Ebay)
Infinity Kappa 520i 6.5 inch (with integral tweeters) in rear doors (£25 SH from a mate)
Harman Kardon sub under rear shelf
A Panasonic 2x30W amp (free from an old car which did not need it) in the rear wheel well.
Pioneer 12x CD auto-changer
I now have a low profile install, which gives me a better sound than the full HK setup in my other half’s ZTT! The whole system sounds fab and I am very pleased with the whole set up.
Other costs: phono leads £6 from Maplin, battery connectors £0.68 from auto factors (NOT Halfords), Sub mounts £3 or so from Kenrhams rover.
Disclaimer! I am not an expert in this field but asked a few people I respect as experts in acoustics and made something I think works well!
