This was NOT a fun install for my significant other. Her demand. Keep it low low low low profile. Nothing visible. No "junk" inside. This is a basic install for low profile 360 per momma's request.


Side warning rear doors. They clear the door and you don't wack your head on it.

I put a strobe in the back window because honestly I couldn't get anything to work with the back deck. I have an LED upgrade kit that I haven't gotten around to yet.

Speaker Placement (below passenger headlight- I honestly need to move this b/c the styrofoam in the bumper- IMO- absorbs alot of the sound output).

Like I said- this totally sucked b/c we had to cmpletely dissassemble the dashboard!

Did you ever end up moving the speaker? I have a friend with a Stratus and he's gonna need to mount a speaker somewhere and we haven't quite figured out where yet.
 
Likes good for low low profile, i would put a led light on the back deck, that strobe just seems to big for a low pro install.
 
Actually- the strobe in the back window looks like a third hand brake light under normal conditions. I've actually had people tell me that my "brake light" was out. :lol:

HAHA :lol: I was thinking it may look like a third brake light.
 
I have a O5 Stratus and i made some costom brakets and mounted two gen 3 led's behind the honey comb grill and the work great. you cant see them hardly intell you turn them on and then its a OMG effect.I also mounted my siren in the same location and it works good.
 
I had a 1997 way back in the day. It was basically my first install, and I learned a lot. Like the importance of lock washers on the bolts holding the speaker-or the bolts that were holding a speaker! Never did figure out where I dropped that little bugger!
 
Your side mounted LIN3's are mounted in the exact same way on my 2009 Corolla with, coincidentally the same exact flash pattern and split loom bent around. For a moment, I thought I was looking at a picture of my own car. Weird!

I would add a HLF asap. It will make a big diffrence.
Yup, even I think you could use some additional forward warning - my typical response is "Less is more!" but that's not always the case. Even just adding a rotating dash light should be enough; the dual LEDs are bright, but that's all there is in front. (Maybe a pair of LED grill lights would be better?)
 
Could you take a picture of the rear light from the inside. I would like to see how it it mounted.


We have to do an install pretty soon on an 06 and we need to mount a phantom in the rear window.
 
Hey Mike, how hard was it to mount those TIR3 behind the b-pillar? And did you find a better place to mount the speaker? I'm doing an install on an 04 Stratus next week...

Under the front bumper there is foam, just cut it back and mount it under the front bumper. I installed a FS Dynamax there once.
