In this second part, I go over a brief summary of the installation before diving into the system, and how it integrates with the Golf system. Check out the various timestamps below to be taken to any specific point of this install that you may be interested in learning about.

You can catch my main review video here → where I go over most of the stereo’s functions in my demo pod.

At the end of the installation, I am very happy with how it turned out, its speed, how it sounds and how it functions overall. There have been a few compromises that I mention in this video, but the overall positives outweigh these negative points.
