So the install list goes like this...
Alpine CDA-118M 1.8Din Marine head unit
Alpine KTP-445 4x45 RMS Amp (not marine)
Alpine SPR-M700 7" Marine Speakers x4
Alpine MC-20 (replaces MC-10) Onboard Remote
Alpine RUE-M1RF Wireless Remote
Head unit install was a PITA due to the size hole the stock splashguard makes
I had to modify the guard to fit the CDA-118M into it but it worked out ok I think.
The speakers were too big to fit so I sanded the stock holes about 1/2" bigger
with a sanding wheel on my cordless drill (worked well but lots of fiberglass dust)
The KTP-445 was a treat, inline plug & play, no wiring, nice power boost, mounted in glove box.
Mounted the MC-20 in the drivers side cup holder cause "I" want to control the tunes
and didn't want to cut any more holes for now at least.
The sound is considerably better then stock, I am very happy with the sound quality and volume.
Alpine needs to include a mounting adapter for the head unit to fit easier, The display is a bit blocky / low rez but sound quality is top notch and has every audio device support known to man!
The RUE-M1RF might be my favorite toy, waterproof, floats, 100ft range, full control inc. power.
I considered adding a Sub earlier but now don't think I will bother, the 7" mids give descent lows.
Highly recommend them if not wanting to add a Sub & Sub Amp.
I'll be adding Sirius in about a week, Yes, I'll post pics shortly
