Sound installed over the weekend went with a Sony WX-GT90BT head unit - at first I did not want to change my stock head but glad I did - I now have proper USB / iPod support and knew the sound processing on the stock unit would not be as good vs aftermarket unit.

Rockford Fosgate P1675-S are in the front, did not install rear speakers with it being a 3 door. In the boot is a Lightning Audio L1-S410 10" 4-Ohm Single Voice Coil Sub-woofer and all is powered by a Lightning Audio LA-4100MINI 800 Watt 4-Channel Amplifier which is small enough to fit under the drivers seat next to the vent ensuring it gets enough cool air. Front doors are also deaden and I still want to do the boot.

All my steering controls are also working 100%, thanks Tremor Audio.

System is loud and the sound quality is great:

Manage to colour code the settings on the radio to match rest of the car:

Well done. Very neat. The head unit fit is clean.
Magic happens.

Luckily I kept most of the speakers from my prev ride and just installed it in the ST which made the setup a bit cheaper. The HU + install which included the harness, trim, RCA cables, sub box worked out to 4.5k

Looks Nice :D
Think car will even launch harder because the new springs will handle the weight transfer better

Car looks very nice, I actually love the look of the gun metal mags on the Frozen ST, didn't think it would suit the car but looks amazing
