I plan on doing a sealed box per the instructions for these particular subs.

I am keeping the 6x9'* for some fuller rear sound in the car. I will build the sub box so it doesn't interfear with them.

I like plexi and I will be using it no matter what formation I use for the installation.

I need to figure out how to "personalize" the installation. Stuff like makeing a light up pontiac symbol, neon light looking "SSEi" lettering, or something along that lines.

TaylorD'* setup is nice. The only thing is I want to keep the amps by the rear seats more and leave the main width of the trunk open.

Do you want to showcase the amps, or get them out of the way? How much CuFt do your sub(*) need?

I want to showcase them. Spent enough on them might as well show 'em off!

Not sure on the exact Cuft needed yet but I am estimating approximetly 1 - 1.5 Cuft. Once I get the subs I will now for sure.

Well knowing how much air (cuft) your subs are going to consume will help to get an idea of options for showcasing both the amp(*) and subs.

something like that...so;rry bad picture...lol...anyways youd need to make custom boxes...but i think if youpulled that off that would look sweet...!!!
I like this one the most but make sure you have the subs facing the back of the car and then you can have a amp rack in between the two mounted to the boxes and just below the hole for your passage.

Do you know what amps they are? Also are you gonna sealoff the 6x9'*, so they dont pop cause of the bass.

Um, I just picked up the amp and subs and OMFG those subs have HUGE magnets! and at a rated 1000 watts a piece, I'm gonna be pissing off a few people!

I need to go lookup the remote control piece for the amp now so I can get it really decked out. I think I might start the installation process this weekend!

I am running a pcx440 series amp for the fronts and rears and a pcx2200 for the subs. Both are PPI amps (along wiht the subs, dcx125 series)
