alright here are pictures of the build step by step.



Starting from the front, I used an Stinger anl fuse holder to protect the sound system.

Moving on to the door panels, I used blackhole tiles on the inside of the doors sheet metal to control the back waves and vibrations. Then focal BAM deadening was used for door panels and seal the door.

Hey Junebug79,

Great job on the 2014 SHO but was wondering if you replaced the center speaker in the front dash? If so with what, how and any photos would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
