Car Audio System COMPLETE! What did I BUILD & INSTALL?

I’ve been working on a full car audio build and install on a 2017 VW Jetta. This build features sound treatment, a head unit upgrade, two new amplifiers, a DSP controlled signal, two 13″ Subwoofers, and a custom trunk beauty panel to top off the install. In this video I walk through the whole build and we do a sound test and reveal the build to the vehicle’s owner!

    Where are you located

    Seems like a very nice system, I watched the whole series and I knew it was going o be awesome. But here is a nice cuve ball for you Mark: Try to build a system that leaves the car 100% usable (no big subwoofer box).
    I mean… The same you did with this one, but keeping the ability to use the whole trunk (the main space of it) and still being able to fold down the seats to acomodate large objects on both spaces. It would be very nice to see how that turns out and to be able to learn hou you would solve it.

    Been thinking of replacing all my factory speakers with some aftermarket ones. I also want to install a separate amp for those speakers how do I know if my aftermarket pioneer stereo has capability for two amps?

  10. JNB on April 3, 2021 at 1:01 am

  12. John Jason Parsons on April 3, 2021 at 1:01 am

  13. Dashawn Trees on April 3, 2021 at 1:03 am

    Hello, I really like the idea of Stinger Heigh 10 unit. I have someone who is attempting to install the Heigh 10 unit in my 2012 Mercedes E63 amg. I was using one of those Chinese model android10.25 screens but it was full of errors and cliques. I can’t find a kit for my vehicle. I am having a custom install done. I was told by a professional installer that the PAC RC1 would not allow my steering wheel controls to work. I was told by the shop where I purchased the unit that the PAC RC1 would work but it had to be compatible with the Clarion systems otherwise it would not work. The Mercedes original system is a fiber optic network. I am connecting this unit to 2 JL Audio VXI 8 channel DSP amplifiers and a JL Audio HD 1200/1 amplifier to run my 13 inch W7 subwoofer. I am using Morel Virtous speakers 3 ways components in the front and 2 way Morel Nanos components in the rear. I am also using Morel Virtous Integras for my rear center stage and Morel 2 inch for my front center stage. I am hoping this will work in my vehicle. I have been unable to find any resources to help with information for this install. I am in northern California and most professional shops have not installed the Stinger Heigh 10 that I have contacted. I called the Stinger company and they were not helpful either. Any help you could give would be much appreciated. If not wish me a lot of luck. Thanks

    This is a perfect set up for a daily driver that wants to have the ability to "JAM" on it! GREAT equipment and a GREAT install CAF!

  23. Rayton White on April 3, 2021 at 1:18 am

    I wish someone could help me. I have a 2019 impala premier. Long story short I’ve already completely upgraded everything. 3 amps and a yellow top battery in the back. My troubling question is I have a PAC Audio amp pro GM 61, I believe, which ever one works for the Bose system and my question is I have to turn my front and rear amp down because I have a continuous shhhhhhhh sound like when your TV is turned all the way up and there’s nothing playing, that static sound that you get. Not a crackling sound but just that quiet sound. I have been told it’s called white noise. I know there is someone out there that can help me fix this problem. Pac audio told me to switch the little voltage button on the unit and it did drop the static sound a little bit but it is still there. I need to figure out the problem so that I can turn my amps up. There should be no sound coming out of those speakers till the music is turned on. Can someone please help me.

  24. Brad Ford on April 3, 2021 at 1:20 am

    Why do subs hit harder when the windows are down?

  25. Jeet J on April 3, 2021 at 1:20 am

  26. Wyatt on April 3, 2021 at 1:20 am

    Beautiful design!

  27. DevilCast on April 3, 2021 at 1:21 am

    So I have 2 active subs with built in amps. 1500w peak and 750watt RMS each. Total 3000w peak 1500 watt RMS. Want to run from battery to Capacitor then to a distribution block and to the amps/subs. Wire from battery to Capacitor would be around 5- 6 feet. From capacitor to distribution block around 1-2 feet. and from distribution block to anmps/subs 1 foot. The Capacitor is a 5000watt capacitor. What gauge wire do I need from the battery to the capacitor and capacitor yo distribution block, and also what gauge from block to amps/subs? The fuse sizes for both the main power cable and distribution block I’m also unsure of.

    Awesome job…..i was hoping you could do some reviews on those jl subs and find out how many watts rms they truly push out. I’m sure they are pretty close to what they advertise.

  48. Josh k on April 3, 2021 at 1:43 am

    Thats how it should be, feel the sound, not just hear the sound.

  49. Aya Maria Menhem on April 3, 2021 at 1:45 am
