Hello all. Just registered after me and my wife got our first Metro. I am a scooter enthusiest so we decided to get a 4 wheeled scooter that can carry passengers in the rain. I almost became a Metro owner like 8 years ago but my dad had to talk me out of it for some reason......

Anyhoo, I have been doing car audio installs for a little over 7 years. I havent done any stereo work to this metro yet but Ive done dozens of other peoples.

Do we have any other installers in the house? Any cool custom work floating around here?

5 cu ft in a Metro? Im guessing you arent taking any back seat passengers.

I'm sure you can get 5 cubes in the hatch of a metro if you build it right. You likely won't have a spare tire back there but leaving the back seats should be doable.

I had four fifteens in my metro, all cleanly installed. That was with no rear seat. Prior to that I had two fifteens in a Plexi top and bottom enclosure. The two fifteen style was pretty nice. I still had the back seat. You could look through the box and I had the amp rack in the spare tire well backlit with neon. The woofers downfired at 45 degree angles at the corners of the box creating a horn loading effect off of the outer quarter floor panels and side walls. Bass extension was extraordinary especially below 50hz... If you want photos of the enclosure I can give you a link, just send me an email. The car was way ahead of its time back in 1995, but still has soundoff fans in my hometown area. Its always nice to have people remember my Geo over all the numerous cars I've owned. And the reason was the sound system;)

Used to install. Thank GOD I got out! I let my M.E.C.P. lapse out. It wasnt worth it to renew it where I am at. :?

yep im an installer, wiring is what im best at, especially finding constant +12v feeds for Mk1 swift owners like myself, who dont have a radio harness that contains a constant 12v, cos the factory radio never had a clock or memory to maintain.

I glue a fuseholder to the top of the fuseblock, tap that into the 12 v feed from the battery to the ignition switch (white/green) using a wire tap that terminates to a female blade, fit a male blade to the fuseholder wire , fit a 15a fuse (or 20 for the big head unit and LCD ones) into the holder, run a red #17 wire to the hu constant +12v from the other fuseholder wire, no lack of power, all nice and sturdy and safe.

ive done this on plenty of Mk1's no one has complained at all

Hi there! I recently bought an 86 Firefly for $250. Good deal since the inside was clean. Paint is for houses......and cars worth more than the paint. :lol: So anyways.... i did my time as an installer. Worked with some really creative and smart people. But now it's onto something else for me. Off topic: Did 86 require a Catalytic converter?
