    Upgrade Speaker System

    Ok, so I looked at a Dart today and it had the Alpine audio system. Does anybody know where the AMP is located at?
    Also would anybody here know how easy or hard it would be to wire a good sub and amp to the back and wiring an amp for speakers and replacing the speakers?
    I had an old Saturn and it was easy to do, but im not sure about the Dart. Im looking to wait and pick up the R/T but am deciding if I should get the Alpine system, or just save that $500 and put it towards redoing the whole system.

    The Alpine system does sound a lot nicer but nothing compared to a car with a dedicated sub amp combo.


    Thanks!

    Are you sure the alpine system was in there. You can't just trust the sticker.....did it have any holes in the trunk where extra speakers would be? The word is that it has been backordered and NO dart has it in there. Although the stock speakers sound pretty great, don't be confused.

    Ive noticed in the trunk of my dart up on top just to the right of the light there is a area stamped out in the frame for the sub. the amp would probably be close by tucked in somewhere. I dont see why it would be easy to add to the sound system.

    Yep....the first Dart I saw at my dealership (which is now sold) had the "alpine" sticker on it, yet it did not have that sub in the trunk. :-/

    That sucks.

    Nevermind....I see you have yet to receive you car. You will enjoy the sound of the Alpine system!

    I posted pictures of the empty spaces for these speakers. I figured the big hole was for the sub and the smaller holes where for two more speakers. Seems I was right. If it doesn't have the alpine speakers, they are just empty holes waiting to be filled with something rather than just being covered.
