Btw you don't need new cables. Tap signal pre amp, drive the post amp wires with your aftermkt amp and drop in your components up front. No new wire is really needed

I wish there were build pics. Most commercial options only give you space for a 10" so this is a sweet setup. Winning bro.

A pair of Focal Access 6.5" 2-way comps for front (no rears - pull them out to maximize bass in the cabin).

A JL Audio XD 4 or 5 ch amp.

Find out if the signal from the HU is balance differential. If so you'll need to set the jumper in the LC6. Then you can just tap the outputs before the amp.

It'll be fine. I run 205s in winter, handling is obviously sloppy on winter tires but the skinnier tire affects it too. Just relax your driving style should be ok.

Reach
I'm actually thinking of an XD amp, but have heard of guys blowing the input due to voltage being too high. That's reassuring that the amp I'm likely going to get can take it.
Sounds good?
