Hmmmmmmm.....Hmmmmmmmmm ... You are going to love 'em.

When you get the sub, you will be blown away. Since this thread came up again I have been fiddling with different settings for the sub on the head unit, and its incredible how nice and full the sound is even at low volumes.

I put some sound deadening material ( same stuff they fit between dry walling )along the bottom of the door to maximize the sound quality. It will still allow any water ingress to leak out the little holes at the bottom of the door, and is also non absorbing.

Mind sharing the name of the material you used?

I've found about 8m of audio cable lying around, so I'm planning to use it, provided I can replace the existing speaker wires in the loom.

I had a few meters of this at home....

Give them a call and ask them if they maybe have an offcut 1m piece of 1.2m (std) wide. Then cut it into 4 off 300mm wide pieces and fit into the bottom of the 4 doors. You can trim it down as per necessary to miss the window winding works etc.

My speaker wires are not in the loom from when I bought the Patrol, but are lying in the rubber sleeve that's between the door and the body.
