I'm assuming 06 P is short for 06 Precedent. Since nobody made a dash kit for the Precedent, that I could find at the time, and since I didn't want my business mounted under the cart roof for all to see and grab, I mounted my unit under the dash and my speakers under the seat. All marine components and they have held up well. For the head unit, I purchased a universal under dash mounting kit and screwed it in from the bottom using screws big enough to be secure, but short enough they wouldn't protrude into the outer cowl cover. Here is a pic of what it looks like:



I ran the speaker wires down and under the floor mat to the battery bay and the power wires to the 12v source and ground behind the dash. For an antenna, I purchased one made to go inside the cowl of big cruiser motorcycles. The antenna has sticky tape on one side of it so I mounted it inside the cowl so it's completely hidden. Here is a pic of the antenna:



The speakers I had to be careful with. There is not a lot of room between the front wall and the battery bay bucket. So, I bought the shallowest mount, marine, Polk Audio speakers I could find. I had to do just a little cutting in the battery bay to get the magnets to fit but it doesn't affect the integrity of the battery bay. I have a post floating around here somewhere with pix but I can repost if you want. Below is a pic of what the speakers look like installed:



The Kenwood unit with these speakers sounds awesome and my friends can't believe I can get the sound and bass I get with just 2 6.5" speakers. I'm very happy with it.

I'd have to take my dash apart to help you with the power. It's back there though. Do you have a light kit installed? If not, you may not have the 12v power going to the dash yet. There is a blue wire on the positive post of the 4th battery (the front one on the passenger side). Is it hooked to anything?

By the way, if your deck doesn't have its own fuse, make sure you use an inline fuse in your wiring.

12V feed for the light kit via your factory harness.

If you get the OEM style light kit, it will include a blue wire with spade connectors on it with an in-line fuse. It will have instructions on where to hook that up. One end goes to the blue wire on battery 4 and that's your 12v power source. I believe the ground is already hooked up. That connection will put power to the harness connector behind the dash that the light kit hooks into. Once you have all that hooked up, you have 12v source within the wiring behind the dash. I tapped into that same wiring to power my stereo. But my head unit has a little fuse built into it, plugged into the back next to where the power wire goes in. If yours doesn't have that, I'd advise putting a fuse between wherever you tap into the 12v and the head unit power.

All that said, I ran mine that way for a while and was not happy with the performance of running lights and radio off of one of my batteries. My lights would get dim and go out soon after and the radio would usually bite the dust before the lights did. I also had issues where, when we hit the accelerator, the lights would dim and/or the radio power would cut off and we'd have to turn it back on. So, I left the wiring behind the dash and to the controller area in place and then ran a separate 12v battery to that wiring. That consisted of removing the blue wire from the 4th battery and wiring it to the + post on my new battery instead and finding the ground wire in the controller area and wiring that to the - post on my new battery. I just can't remember some of the wires without looking. I do remember the ground wire at the controller area was a yellow wire with a bullet connector on it.
