Default New install

With the help of my buddy Derek I got my new amps and subs hooked up. We still need to mount the sub box down and pretty up all the wires but it works and sounds good. I still need to make a bunch of little adjustments to all the controls though.

Before:


And after. Those are Memphis Mclass amps. 200X4 and 500X1. The subs are 12" Infinity Kappa Perfects. I now have matching subs and speakers!

When I had my IMPP facing up they werent as loud outside as if you had them facing torwards the rear. But I also took out my 6x9'* when I did this so they did get blown.

i have had mine facing both ways, and they are louder pointing up, but they can only get loud this way if u have them close to the rear window. In this guys install i would deffinately sugguest proping them up to where they are as close as possible to the rear window, u have really nice equipment and u deffinately want to get their max potential out of the window. by the way those memphis amps would look a thousand times prettier without all of the wires dangling in front of them and on a carpeted box
