06 audio build

Ok, so my last car is gone, new car is here. So ready to start a new build. Here is the new car, a 2006 Chrysler 300c.


Lot more trunk space then the Mustang.


So first thing I did was fina a K&N Cold Air Intake. Looks good and made a huge difference with the sound of the engine.


So the stock stereo is a Boston Acustic 6 speaker system. It leaves a lot to be desired. Since the head unit is only about a din and a half, I had to order a new dash bezel to make the opening large enough for my double din.



When the dash bezel came in, UpS was not too nice to it.

Luckily, the bezel was ok and not damaged.

This is the newest car I have owned, and the most complicated wiring.

The instructions were like a phone book in a foreign language


I was able to get the deck in, works great, looks awesome. So the new deck helps a lot with the stock speakers. The settings help the speakers get louder, and sound crisper.



Waiting for install:
Optima yellow top
Stinger batt
Lots of 1/0

I have a Memphis Mojo 4k and 4 DC 8"s that Will prolly be installed temporarily. I have to call DC about some larger subs and maybe a DC 3.5k.

Lol no. No airbags. Just condensation on the windows. First pic was from when I bought it. I definitely would not have bought it if the air bags were deployed.
