If you have 2 seats up font like me then you can make a custom box to go in between to take a 12" sub + new speakers in front doors and rear. Also makes a great table for all sorts of stuff.

Welcome to the forum………..have you any pictures of the custom box? It sounds like a great idea…………did the speakers you put in the doors/rear need adaptor rings?

Hi
Thank you. I will take some pictures and try to put them on. I made a couple of mdf rings for the front speakers and the tweaters sit ontop of door the card in front of elec window switches. I have removed the rear panels and have fitted it out for my work so rear speakers incorporated in my rear wheel arch boxes.
I also still use the comand system that came with the van.

If you haven't worked it out, to post pictures, you can post reply...Go Advanced….select the paper clip…….choose file from you machine……..upload.
You can do a maximum of three per post this way.
Or you can use the envelope for linking to say Photobucket (I think).

Hi
Pictures of my Base box. It's still on my to do list to re carpet tile the top with darker tiles. This box was in my previous vito which had a grey interior. The hooks on the back are great for hanging shopping bags etc on plus there are the folding cup holders.

Same here, chipped screen had it repaired, broken screen, new screen fitted, chipped again now, had it repaired but just waiting for the next thing.The vans only 18 months old admittedly we do 35-40k miles per year and have had so many things fall from vehicles and hit us, from stones, timber, straps, the worst was a bale of straw on the M62 near Castleford.
So fed up of this and bad driving, I will be fitting a forward facing camera to record, as if you have no proof other people aren't bothered

I'm getting my new head unit fitted next month by Exec spec but I'm happy with a pioneer 960dab comes with traffic live and is far cheaper than the alpine one and I'll do the job.:thumb:
