      It’s so weird to me that I’m just finding your DE-news channel! I remember being a young teenager watching the howcast videos learning how to tinker with car stereos. Today I found it based from a howcast video I found from searching up an alpine amplifier I bought for my car. I watched it for the nostalgia, and this happened to be in the recommended! Thank you so much for the knowledge you gave though those videos! It’s over a decade later and I’m still tinkering like a kid, just hopefully doing a better job of it! Definitely going to sub now!

    40. Rocky B.

      Man I would like to meet you one day. Subscribed!

      6:14 i fucking hate those radio tools i love the radio in my 95 toyota vienta just unclip a panels and just 4 screws to remove the radio

      LEDs on headlights without projectors is a safety risk for anyone driving in the opposite direction. You see better by blinding everyone else :(

      1. ItsAlive111

        Nathan Lynch I hope they did the high beams, but the video doesn’t clarify and from what I saw, it seems they just put LEDs on the low beams. It may attract LEO’s attention driving at night, blinding everyone

      2. Nathan Lynch

        But the high beams won’t be used unless the road ahead is empty or they are off-roading.

      So... Since you're somewhat of an expert on the subject... I have a question. I own an 03 Mitsubishi eclipse Spyder gts with the "upgraded" infiniti sound system with the 6 disk in dash cd changer and the factory amp. I wanna put a head unit similar to the one you just installed while retaining my steering wheel controls as well as my factory amp... Is that possible and if so... How would I go about doing it. I've found very little on DE-news actually explaining what to do with the amp. Most of what I've found either completely unhooks and bypasses it or just says nothing about it... I want to retain my factory speakers too which there are 7 of I believe... A tweeter and speaker in each door. A speaker on each side in the rear seat. As well as I believe either an EXTREMELY small sub or just another speaker in the center of the dash... So is there a special head unit I need for all those speakers..? I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this stuff... I can drop a trans and pull a motor in a day and a half. But when it comes to speakers. I'm basically brain dead... Lol.

    52. Gokul Chandrasekaran

      Seth your camera man badly needs to learn how to use manual focus and not rely on auto focus!! :P

    53. James Dankworth

      Very fun video! I just did a similar install on a buddy's truck too. I use to do mobile electronics a decade ago too when I was in high-school! Being in Alaska it was about 90% autostarts and then maybe a month or two during the summer we would get a couple full stereo builds. But got a lot of experience trying to get early versions of aftermarket modules to program with the vehicle and almost never wanting to do it first try. Anyways always cool to see what people use to do before you met them.

    54. callmex

      I used to love these videos when I use to bike and BMX a lot i started skating and stopped watching/riding bikes but I have never stopped watching your vids keep it up.
