i have new speakers everywhere else except the subs in the door. does anyone know of any subs that fit? i know the depth is kinda narrow. also thinking of replacing the head unit. i know that it utilized an amp. What have you put in your D1? looking for something with an SD slot or USB. Thanks!

Iirc I used some cheapo pyramids off amazon but had to mod something due to the magnet size also think the amp now lays in the door

Nah I can't make it, my girl is throwing a party at her place.

If I remember correctly those subs are a tight fit. They will work but everything will be tough to put back together.

Sound is ten times better though!

ah. you will be missed man! did you update the head unit on your truck? i can't handle the disc changer and shitty radio reception. Ive done car stereos before but never in a disco and i know there are restrictions because you go out to an amp. im looking for something with bluetooth or an S/D slot

I bought this one
http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-DEH-P8400BH-Receiver-Bluetooth-MIXTRAX/dp/B006YBQ6V6/ref=sr_1_17?s=car&ie=UTF8&qid=1401763606&sr=1-17&keywords=pioneer+head+unit
and used this to hook it up
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007WQ938/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I was worried about the amp and stuff too but I just wired it up like any other headunit and it sounded pretty good so I just left it.

The bluetooth sometimes doesnt work correctly but that was with my old phone which was a good 5 years old.  I havent tried it with my new phone but I like the headunit.

What speakers did you go with in the doors and rear?
