Another "hey look at my upgraded stereo" thread
Got it all in and tuned today. Sounds pretty darn good and I'm happy with the output from the bullets.

Didn't think the little blocks of Trex would be so easy to see on the EQ:
And a demo of how far away the bluetooth will work:

Very nice. Bluetooth is awesome
Nice set up! I like the idea of the bluetooth, that's sweet.
Are your batteries up front behind the spotter's seat? If so, was that the stock location or did you move them?
Mine are in the passenger side rear compartment and I was thinking of moving them up front to make room for my Fatsac. I'm just trying to figure out if it's worth it and what gauge wire.
Wow, just love the bluetooth. How is it setup? It's only the HU and your Ipod??
Yes, that's the "stock" location for the batteries. I did add a blue seas add-a-battery in the observers compartment too. I'd definitely be wary of batteries and ballast sacks in the same compartment. look at genuinedealz.com for marine battery wire. Prolly need 2ga. Buy the more expensive stuff. The special budget wire is really inflexible and hard to work with (ask me how I know....)
esprit -- yeah, once you pair the iphone / touch to the HU, the HU will play whatever the phone tells it to. So in addition to playing stuff off of my ipod, I can also stream pandora, slacker, etc. Actually took a call on it yesterday while I was working on it too. This headunit has bluetooth built in, so there aren't any other components. I have noticed that streaming BT is a huge battery drain on my iphone (doubly so if streaming pandora), though, so I've made arrangements for plugging the phone into a charger too.
