You did exactly as I was suggesting. Since your Amp has built in DSP, no need to add an external dsp source. Those JL Audio VX amps are getting hard to find after the factory fire in Japan. Great install you have.
Yup, had one backordered through sonic electronics. Checked crutchfield and they had 1 left so I grabbed it back in March. I didn't trust backorders and it was the only thing holding up my install. They weren't expecting any more till May.

I noticed they raised the prices by $150 too.

I recognize that signal wire harness. :wink:
How's your system sounding now? Have you had a chance to do any tuning with the EQ?

Sounds amazing. Worked with JL on some small tuning adjustments. Did the laser measuring to my head position. Adjusted the sub DB and input gains. Overall it is just amazing.

Most JL Audio products are getting hard to find due to a factory fire last summer. I hope you can find one. There is a store local to me that I think still has some. I bought a few JL products last summer right after the fire in anticipation of me using them in the future.

As I said early on. The cost begins to add up quickly when upgrading these vehicles. I listened to a $8K install in one when I was back home....labor alone was over $2K. Yep, I know they charge whatever the market will bear.

Yeah, my C7 was 5K. This has already reached 2k.

lol, I keep forgetting we both have owned some of the same cars. I still have my C7 :)This one is even more expensive to upgrade when it comes to audio. We used to talk about the Corvette tax every time we bought something, I think I may have to add the Mustang tax. :sunglasses:
