I know I know I really really want it but the budget is closed for this year (unless i get another promotion lol). I wish i had some sponsors !!!!!. I still have to finish sound deadening on ceiling and floor, get a good alternator, get the bit 10, I also want to add another set of milles somewhere (+ another amp of course), and finally a nice light kit for the amp rack. But nooo all that has to cost money lol. How much you think the rest of what I want will run me?

Ohh and yes the SR4 is bridged into 2 channels.

You should add a Bit 10 and take it even another level!

c'mon...you KNOW you want to...you deserve it...and so do the Milles...

Lucky you.. are you installing the sound system yourself? My installer gave me the 9980 demo from his store till the 9990 gets here. He was nice enought to do that because of 2 things.
  1. I really needed to get the install done fast after i got my scosche kit to ensure it was working properly.
  2. I was going for alpine instead. It was his way of convincing me to Kenwood
    • I loved the kenwood features but it was too slow.
Once i gave him those 2 reasons he offered it up. Hopefully by end of this month i have the 9990

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I appreciate you posting your build here. I have decided to do an active 3 way front stage. I want to reinforce the mid bass as much as possible.

I am actually going on Tuesday to listen to the Hertz Mille, Audison Voce, and German Maestro Status line(original MB Quart Designer from the 90s). Supposedly there is a shop in San Diego that has them all installed in vehicles that I can listen to.

When we exchanged pm's, you answered some questions for me about sound deadening. I kept researching and spoke with multiple shops. You were right about the amount of material. I ordered 4 bulk packs of Stinger Roadkill for the first layer.

The dynapad that they used on your vehicle is an absolute must if you want to quiet the road noise. For those that aren't familiar, dynapad has a layer of foam, a layer of 1 lb/per sq ft vinyl, and a second layer of foam. The foam serves as a decoupling layer and the vinyl is a mass loaded barrier.

I found a company that specializes in sound deadening for commercial and marine applications. They sell many versions of dynapad. They carry a 1/2, 1, and 2lb version. They sell in bulk. I was able to get 4'x8' sheets of the 2 lb vinyl layer for $90. I am going for 100% coverage. I will also be applying the 1" accoustic batting to the back of my panels. Here is the link:
http://www.soundprooffoam.com/

I'll post a thread when I get a chance to install it. I'm still deployed, so I'll let you know when I get started. I just wanted to thank you for your help. Sorry for the confusion, but I'd been celebrating prior to typing, never good.

It's hard to tell online. How well does the color and texture of the Scosche kit match the stock trim?

Does the 9990HD allow you to use the steering wheel controls?

Did you get the XMSirius add on also?

The firmware update for the scoshe kit did not fix the steering control issue. My guess is because this is a brand new radio and it may be different from the previous 9980 model. My installer is communicating with scosche R&D to try to find a fix. If that doesn't pan out my installer would make it work but I don't really care for it so haven't got him to do it.

I did not get satellite radio. It does come with hd radio and it sounds clean to me. I stick with iPod though

Styphon. I never updated this thread to post the workaround for the steering wheel control to work on the scosche/kenwood 9990. See the attached PDF. Had it done like 2 months ago and no problems with sterring wheel controls

Love your install!!!

Camarograna2,
Absolutely love everything you've done to your car, it rocks!!
As I have a rally Yellow 2011 SS myself, I am planning on doing several of the same things youve done, to mine. I purchased the same dash kit, i am in the process of dynamating the car as we speak.
I'd like to know several things from you, if you would be so kind,
1, how are you liking that Kenwood head unit? I have been struggling with the decision to purchase it, or the pioneer single DIN 99rs. However, i'm starting to lean towards the Kenwood. I'm not that interested in the navigation part of it, but looks like it has quite a few other interesting things going for it.
2. Would you be interested in building and selling some of the tweeter pods you have built? I am as well interested in the Hertz brand of speakers, and i'm taking for granted they are serving you well?? I don't know where to obtain them as of yet, but several brands of tweeters will not fit in the stock pods.
3. can u tell me more about the Kenwood/Scosche pair up, and how well the work together, or are there anything (shortcomings) i should be aware of, I do understand there is some hard wiring to do to keep the steering wheel controls working? That is about all ive heard so far.
Any help is much appreciated

thanks again

1. I like my kenwood headunit. I contemplated allot of NAV DD and the 9980/9990 was the winner. My major priority was getting a good Nav system. I didn’t want to rely on an App for navigation. I wanted one that had good navigation and good sound. I read reviews comparing it to others and this was the winner. Only complaint I saw from people was that the 9980 was slow. So when I went to my installer I told him I wanted the scosche with the alpine unit and that’s when he told me that in a few months the 9990 was coming out and it had a faster processor. Since I needed to install something quick (to ensure scosche was properly working) he offered me the 9980 demo from his store while the 9990 came in.
2. I didn’t build them, my installer did. Phone is 817 265 1282. Here is the link http://www.mobilesoundtx.com . Just tell him you want some tweeter pods like Cesar’s Camaro. If he needs me to come in during the weekend to replicate it I’ll do it for you. As far as the speakers… You need to find yourself an authorized dealer for hertz so that you can get that warranty that you wouldn’t get online. I know of another one up in Arkansas but it would be same distance for you to go to either or. The one in Arkansas is called TC Audio. I love the sound for these speakers. So loud, deep, and clear. I was actually going for the level under this one which is more loud but not as clear but when my installer played this setup for my wife.. she said get that one!
3. Well they don’t really interact with each other except for the Steering wheel control. As I posted earlier you just need to solder some wires and it works fine. You don’t need to buy another SWC kit.. just do the workaround. As far as why I picked the scosche kit it was because I really did not like the Metra Kit. Personal opinion only so don’t jump me Metra guys. It looks like a calculator watch if you ask me.LOL. I love the touch screen control for the scosche kit as well. I get allot of wows for that one.

Where did you get the 300 amp alt? Been looking for one and can't find any higher than 250. Also, anyone know the output of the stock alt?
