A little tip: get a wire coat hanger and tape the hose to it and then put that through the grommet mentioned in the directions.

Trust me.

Trust me.

thanks, i'm mentally war gaming this now. it can't be worse than when i did my line out converter / amp install.

i looked at couple youtube videos and it looks to be pretty involved. more than i was expecting. Subaru instructions suck.

Trust me.

highly recommend this as well. it was even tough to fish this through the firewall with a coat hanger/electricians fish tape. be patient and dont be scared ripping your dash out. i was nervous too gutting out my dash on both sides to complete, but take your time and do a nice job while following the instructions and you shouldnt have any issues.

I would suggest not installing the rubber part on the pod face. Mine was installed from the factory and that peeled off when the car was parked in the sun. The glue is a real PITA to remove, looks better without it as well. Just my two cents!

not to derail but which one is easier to install?


Oil Pressure would be fine with me

i just want to fill the vacant hole and not have to splice / hack back into the wiring.

mechanical is fine if i can just tap the dimmer.

I installed the kicker trunk sub myself, that took some time but was fun. I figured for the boost gauge I'd let them deal with it!
Hey im looking into buying that kicker, can you control the bass with your stock head unit?
