Very nice job.

I love that HiFonics amp too! I'm getting an amp from them also. A Brutus 1500 D pumping 2 Infinity Kappa Perfects 10.1'*.
I got Infinity 5 1/4 comps in the doors, and Infinity 6x9'* in the back.

I can't wait to get my system going.

Nice job, i like the sub box too! Never saw that setup before. What kind of deck are you using?

I am using a Kenwood MP522....plays mp3s and I have Sirius on it too. Really nice unit, but hard to set up the SQ adjustments (like the Q, preamp levels, etc...too much to do when the battery is disconnected)

The downward firing subs provide plenty of response for rock, and its ok for "booty"...plus I never thought ENYA would have alot of bass to her music until I heard it for the first time on this system. Overall, I think its not bad at all.

Its not as "boomy" I think, when compared to a box that fires either front or rear. The bass seems a little on the "tight" side (like I said, it will do rock music really well, with the bass drum being pretty clear and tight). That might also be due to the box being a sealed design. My crossover setup has the 6x9s crossed at 300Hz+ (A little high I know, but still alot of usable sound), with the box handling 200-40Hz and at 125 watts RMS, stereo mode. Later I am going to set it up for bridged mono to see how that sounds, and like I said before, I am also going to upgrade to another Hifonics to power the rest at a later time. I hope to be ready for the Spring Break Nationals here in Daytona Beach this comming spring, but I still have a ways to go yet...plan on rhino-lining the inside of the box and the trunk, seam-seal everywhere, and a few more neons and LEDs.
