I'll be installing that exact same amp here shortly.

I'll be running an Alpine CDE-143BT head unit, and Infinity REF-6522EX speakers front and rear. So, in other words the exact same setup you have spec'd.

Nothing out of this world, but nothing that's super cheap crap as well.

I was able to get the amp and speakers off eBay new for cheaper than Amazon (20% off code the other day), and managed to find the head unit new in box for $50 locally on Craigslist.

Should be pretty easy to install overall.

If you get a chance can you see if the amp guys under the passenger seat? Thanks?

Hey, so the amp does fit under the rear seat (and fronts) per a quick fit test.

The outputs/inputs are on the longer side, which creates a little more of an issue with routing. I'll be running 90į RCA adapters to help.

Speakers arrived yesterday.

I've got a few other things to wrap up (like a hidden winch mount) before I'll be able to get to installing this stuff.

Cool, thanks for checking for me. I appreciate it. Looking forward to your impressions of the whole set up when you finish.
