I chose to go completely aftermarket for the sound system in the PIG.
I enjoy full, loud music and it can be acheived in a convertible.
I started with a Pioneer head unit 4 X 60 watts which I have my front 4" Pioneer TSA1057 dash speakers and a pair of JL Audio tweeters hooked up with a spliter.
The head unit also runs 2 - 6 X9 JBL speakers on the parcel shelf.
All the speakers are run with no bass.
The bass comes from a 10" Infinity subwoofer and a Crossfire VR302 amp that is mounted on the faux parcel shelf that I contructed out of MDF and carpeted.
This system kicks ass however, I could use a new head unit with some face plate aux. plugs.
The head unit I have is 7 years old now and a little outdated if you want to use , say, an Ipod.
I currently use an FM transmitter for my Ipod.
I'd also like to hear/see some input from anyone who has gone the door speaker route with their 107. I used to own a 77 450sl that had the "usual" upgrade with some Kenwood 4" in the dash and 6x9's in the back, just powered off of the head unit. Yes, its a night and day improvement over the stock setup, but still nothing that great sound-wise. Now I'm back on here as I'm currently looking for a 560sl for my next fun car and one thing I'd definitely like to do is to go with some type of door speakers. I have seen them both mounted right in the door panel as well as ones that either replace or make use of the map pockets. I'm a audio nut, so I'd like to put something good together for the 560. My preliminary thoughts would be some 6.5" components in the doors and a nice sub in the package shelf, but I'd love to see what other people havee come up with in the way of door speakers.
