alright, I got done with the final touches including quieting down some alternator noise I had in the rear speakers (not eliminate unfortunately) and enclosing everything. I used sturdy cardboard and glued the carpet to it for a lightweight material. It turned out pretty great! The pictures make it not look the hottest but in person it looks a lot better.

Basslink before:


Basslink when side panel of enclosure is lifted. The side can easily be opened to make adjustments to the basslink. the back is not enclosed at all, nor the side near the back seat because the fins for the heat sink are there. it hides the wires nicely and almost looks stock in person. there are cutouts for the cargo net, and a cutout for the trunk hinge to fit into.

I also enclosed the amp rack so the amps cannot be seen, or any wiring. This is the look I was going for because I'd rather not show off what I have. To the average person it would look stock as well I believe..

I'm glad to be finally done! 3 full days of work.. whew. It was worth it I guess. What you guys think?

It sounds pretty good for how small it is. It'* not as good as a decent 12 in a box because it'* only an 10" woofer with a 10" radiator. It doesn't have punchy bass like a regular boxed sub would, but it does get pretty boomy on bass heavy songs. It has enough bass to integrate well with the rest of the music. If you're a huge bass fan though and like a lot of it, the basslink probably isn't for you. But, for how small it is, and the fact that it has a built in amp I think it performs excellent and is a great deal.

That is a BIG problem

along with the fact you have a crappy deck installed from the factory.
