After hearing Randy's speakers and comparing them to the factory sound, there is NO comparison. I will be making these upgrade a high priority for my Leaf....the sound was my biggest complaint. Not any more!!! ;)

Thanks for all the pics, Randy. I'll be picking your brain in the future for my version of the install!!! I hope you're thirsty! 8-)

Good to see you again today, JimmyD....

I'm glad you liked the upgrade, and I'd be more than happy to help you...There's a lot of ways to skin the cat with audio systems, but I can sure point you in a good direction for your Leaf...We had fun today at the Hometown Buffet meet, and it was fun to do the "sound-off" with the memory sticks...

See you soon....

Randy

What songs might be good leafy-theme songs?

Everyone put it/them on a USB Flash Drive, a group of LEAFs circle around, doors open, and everybody selects the song and pushes "Play" at the same time.

Pan pipes ("El Pájaro Campana"), chants of Druid ceremonies, far away African beats, steel drums, and "the Wolf" theme from "Peter and the Wolf"?

+1 to how good this sounded compared to the stock setup - night and day. Nice job, Randy!

I'm planning to play TMBG whenever anyone asks me if they can take a ride in my electric car:

(Point to the "5" and click the "play" triangle for a preview if you've never heard it before.)

I wanted to chime in after having done this myself for a week or so now and relay how much it's growing on me. It didn't sound THAT much better at first, but the speakers are breaking in now and sound significantly better than when they were first installed. Night and day for sure, and I don't even have the subwoofers... 8-)

+1. It's a great theme tune for EV'ers. The video for it is kinda cute too.
