Syazwan’s Proton Persona full on Pioneer Stereo Upgrade

Proton Persona Rear View

Syazwan came to us looking for speakers to match his newly bought Pioneer AVH-4100NEX head unit which he bought overseas. To be honest, he already had what wanted in mind. All we did was confirm his choice.

Here is a list of item’s we used for this install:

  1. Proton Persona Double DIN Dash Kit
  2. Proton Stereo Harness Adapter
  3. Pioneer TS-D1730C 6.5″ Component Speakers
  4. Pioneer TS-G1645R 6.5″ 2 Way Speakers
  5. DOOP-1661HD Camera
  6. Proton Speaker Adapter for door

So, as usual, first step was removal of the stock standard stereo. Then we proceeded to wire up the stereo leads to the harness adapter.

Syazwan was particular about wiring and wanted to avoid any cutting of the wires. So we spend a little more time preparing the wires to enable plugging in to the speakers without having to cut it.

This was a lengthy job that took a whole day. Many thanks to Syazwan who is an all around nice guy and very patient throughout the process.
