    Finally replaced my deck. As in my post above, had good amps, speakers, etc. but old in dash. Wanted touch screen with blue tooth and Apple Car Play. Installed a Kenwood in my Hummer and was going to go with similar, then found this Atoto S8 Gen2 on Amazon with amazing reviews.
    Single Din with floating 8” touchscreen. Runs as a Google device so can run apps, videos, gps, etc. Has 2 Bluetooth capacity plus wired and wireless Apple Car Play and Android Audio. Ample access still to HVAC controls and vents. Also added covered USB port left of red button.

    For those who installed component speakers in the doors, where did you mount the crossovers?

    I installed mine in the trunk... but you could also put them into the doors. But I would only do this if your crossovers do not allow for any setting changes. On the other hand, you need to run additional wires to the trunk...

    Following the advice of those that are wiser then I am Ive decided to just do everything at the same time.

    Head and speakers pictured above. Still trying to decide what to do for the “subwoofer.” Same thing for the amp. The shop im working with is VERY knowledgeable. My dad used them for many years for all his car audio needs. This is gonna be fun.

    If you end up running new speaker wires, I'd highly recommend covering them with something like this (PET braided sleeve):

    It's more work up front, but it makes pulling the wires so much easier, especially if you are trying to fish them from the cabin into the doors.

    Will definitely be running new cables. Thanks for the tip!

    If you do end up going with that sleeve, either use a hot knife to cut it, or hit the cut end briefly with a lighter to keep it from unraveling on you while you slide it in place. There are some other tricks to using it, but I'm sure most would figure it out pretty quickly.

    I hear you, but there's no free lunch, right?!

    There are also these flat under-the-seat subs, but I have never heard one and I am not sure, if they really fit under the Viper seat(s)... maybe they fit behind a seat rather than under!?
