My car was the cheap model which didnt have the Bose, amp, or subwoofer. I think this made the job a lot easier for me as the speaker wires were directly there. I wired a cheapy amp for the time being to the speakers under the drivers seat.Can you use stock Bose speaker and sub setup?
Currently have a 400 watt 2 channel crapstastic amp. It's hiding under the driving seat right now. Planning to hide it under the carpet eventually. How big is that amp and will a normal sized amp fit there?Sweetness!
Some pics from my install might give you an idea about running/hiding the amp wires.
Consider a mini amp like the Rockford fosgate mini (4 channels x 75w RMS)...also in the picture. Tug it up high above the brake pedal where the Bose amp would be if you had Bose system. This little guy kicks butt!
Or take a turn REALLY hard haha.And the best part is if you ever flip the ML the iPad will rotate with it. So even waiting for emergency crews you could still check Benzworld.
Did you make a thread about that? If so yours was the inspiration for this project after I saw what was possible using the stick wiring to charge and play audio out of the speaker system.I was pretty exited about my iPhone charge and play through the CD player, you guys are on another level.
Did you get any of the above (besides hiding the wires) or any other additions?Things left to do
-Add a USB port for extra charging for other devices (the iPad has a dedicated power line from the ACC of the power harness for the radio).
- Bluetooth remote to control volume without touching the iPad
- hide the wires for the amp under drivers side carpet (any instructions for that?)
Here are some pictures for your enjoyment.
