    I don't have radio speakers in the instrument panel so I mounted the ballasts with heavy duty velcro to the "shelf" area where the speakers would have been installed. I have an 09 RT.

    Mark,

    It's an 09 RT. I don't live too far from the Cal-Sci folks, so I may drop down for a test ride with their shield.
