Someone installed Subs. Sadly, they took them out and left me with a mess of big Blue wires. Also an Aftermarket Stereo (iDA-X100) with USB, BlueTooth(not included -_-), Aux, and Fm/Am Radio. I plan to get something not so scratched up and maybe takes up a little more room with a touch screen.

Touchscreen Radio which show gauges for like boost/RMP/Speed/Temp.
