Back to the topic, how much better does it sound with the Polk'* in there now?

As you can see from the Speaker pics, the Polks are 3 way so I get the mids. They sound much better and carry a deeper low end. The Kickers werent mounted properly because there was a gap between the mounting ring and the speaker basket, but when I put the Polks in, they seated nicely and were able to go flush in the mounting ring which gave it a better seal against the back deck.

The Polks are currently being run by an older Alpine V12 amp which I am changing out to a Rockford Fosgate 851X Four channel amp. 110x4 @ 4ohms.

I already have all of the gear I am going to be swaping out. I pulled it out of my recently Deceased 90 Eclipse. (pics were taken two summers ago.)






If I still Lived in Derry, NH I would still be driving this car because it still ran awesome!! It just wouldnt pass Massachusetts Smog Emmissions.

In a way im glad everything worked out or else I would have never bought my AWESOME SSEi

why are the holes in your rear deck so odd shaped? Do you have speaker grilles for them?
