Just got my scion tC on last saturday and it is awesome. I want to change the speakers and get an amp for it though. Any thoughts to what speakers and/or amp I should get with a price range from about 400-600?
Yeah, they can put the stuff in there for you. I don’t think they carry Fosgate stuff, but the carry MTX and the like. If you want fosgate, go to Best Buy or a local shop that carries that brand and does installs. If it were me, I'd go to a local shop to get anything other than a head unit swap.
I put my amp underneath the passenger seat. I had to take the end caps off, but it fits great and doesn't interfere with the movement of the seat.
It's actually inside the rear side panels, not the door panels. If you use any of the 2005 Alpine V-12 amps w/ select Alpine head units, all settings are accessible from the head unit via AmpLink controls. There would be no need to ever access the amps behind the panel. If your not using Alpine stuff, make sure all settings are set up properly before you replace the panels.
