As I posted in Customizing, I am putting a nice system in the `02 Maxima (not that the stock radio is a bad thing) but I miss my Eclipse.

To reiterate, this is what`s going in the Max:

Eclipse 4441 AM/FM/Cass/CD Changer Controller

Eclipse CH5061 In-Dash CD Changer

JL Audio 500/5 Amp

JL Audio XR-653-CS Component Speakers

JL Audio XR-650-CX Coaxial Speakers

JL Audio 12w3 Subwoofer

Audio Control EQS Equalizer

Pics will be forthcoming. :D

You have three of my favorite names going into your M. I also am a big Kicker fan. I have a ZR240 and ZR120 powering my setup. I can`t wait to see your pics! Enjoy!! :xyxthumbs

looks like a good set up:xyxthumbs

Mine is>

Clarion CD, ALPINE EQ, Boston Acoustics Fronts & JL rear highs, 2JL 12W1 subs, PPI amps

Ooohhhh, PPI. I used to have a 4200. That was a sweet amp. I still kick myself for selling it. Are yours newer models or older? We used to like the older ones because you could bypass the harness they sent you and solder direct to the board. Awesome sound quality.

That setup "sounds" sweet to me!! I love JL and PPI, their gear is top notch! Unfortunately at the time I installed my stuff, JL wasn`t even thinking about making amps. :( Oh well, my PPI is one of the best amps on the planet for the $$ IMHO.

Here`s my stuff: Kenwood eXcelon HU w/ MASK, (that will soon be replaced with something, still undecided, likely an Alpine CD), Kenwood Pearl Blue fronts, Pioneer 4-way rear 6x9", 3 JL 10W0s, 400W PPI amp. I love the sound of PPI and JL, did I say that already?? :D Perfect punchy bass for SQ or earth shaking boomy bass when you want. Barely there or over the top! So many ways to EQ a PPI amp!

Anyhow, sweet system, should sound amazing!! Post pix if you can, please!

The shop that will be doing the work is going to take pics of the whole thing. The only drag is that I will be without my Maxima for 2-3 days while they install the stuff. :(

Most definitely. All cabling will be by Kimber for this system. :D

<< waiting to see if Eclipse changes their lineup in regards to in-dash CD Changers. Also waiting until he gets his Maxima out of the shop (y`all know the story on that one. :mad: )

Good choice with the JL Audio`s, one of my favorite speakers...I`m running 2 12"w6`s.

Head unit is an Alpine cda-7949 with DDA converter to run fiber optic cables!!!!

While Daria Heals, I am doing hresearch on Eclipse`s 2002 lineup. :D

Aurora gave me a good suggestion for the sub but I want to hear what the 13W6v2 sounds like. BTW, this is going in the `03. I had to say goodbye to my `02 due to my circumstances. :(
