nice..... But I don't think anything smaller then a 12 would give the sound in the trunk of the bonne it'* sealed up fairly well... going by experience 8'* and 10'* are meant for hatch backs and pick ups.

yeah i wouldnt touch the rears, i just replaced my doors and rears about a month ago and i had great highs but no lows. Got me a 12" kicker sub last week and i cant even tell i have rear speakers. It wasnt a waste of money for me though, I got the rears for cheap but the fronts i would do for sure. Having clear highs coming from the front really makes a great balance for the highs and lows throughout the car.

Unplug the rear speakers. You'll hear the difference.

Well the UPS man was good to me today although it would have been nice to receive my HU today but thats tomorrow.

Due to some unforeseen circumstances the shop where i purchased the set-up will not be installing. (it'* being dealt with) But they do Stand behind me 100% (from the owner) I was also asked if I would be interested in joining Massive Audio and the Canadian Car Show tour.. (paper work being written up should be here soon) As they are looking for a North American Vehicle (not a ricer) to display some of there equipment. We'll see...

Might mean Turbo and Flames sooner.... The shop where I purchased is basically the only Massive retailer between here and Alberta ?? I'm going to look in to that. But going for the All stock appearance idea for now. Anyways Install should start tomorrow As the HU should be in sometime around 2:30 and the boys at BenDav should be ok without it.

Well it'* all in except the Head Unit (hasn't arrived yet)

SO All new wiring front to rear yucky 6 holes 4 new ones and 2 made bigger for the tweeters, Returned and exchanged a set of the 6" components for 5.25 for the rear doors, Dropped the 6x9'* in place routed the cross overs hid the front ones inside the dash and the back seat ones under the seat, the rears are nicely installed in the trunk.

Removed Monsoon AMP and zip tied all wires hid them, Removed Onstar box did the same with the wire'*. Used a piece of MDF to mount the amp on the black trunk thing pre drilled holes for the wiring. (nice and clean) Oh did I mention every inch of wire has been taped so it looks factory and is clean. Might go pick up some blue LED'* for the trunk tomorrow and install when we wire up the amp. Heres some pictures of todays field trip to Ben Dav.

Thats insane. If any one of my installers did that crappy of work, I would personally hurt them.

Anyways, I *should* be getting a pair of Massive 10'* my way pretty soon as well!

BTW, why did you cut out the stock tweeter location? I used the factory mount with no problem.

they didn't fit they are a 1. 5/8 tweeter and to use the Massive mount it needed to be made bigger I wanted them to sit like factory and not stick out. Plus it gives a more uniform appearance. If only my HU would get here as of right now im driving around with my Ihome pluged into a power inverter for tunes lmao
