Ive decided i want to make my subs and amp my gf bought me look cleaner tonight and hide the wires, but first i have a couple questions.

1.Which way produces the best tone; having my subs facing my bumper, or having them face my backseat?

2.I have 2 amps, one is F*[email protected] huge and the other is a smaller amp capable of being placed in my drivers side wheel well. Where would you mount the amps?

Yes your subs should face back towards the bumper. It makes the sound spread and you will actually gain a few DB because of it. What kind of amps do you have and what kind and size subs. If you go to my thread on subwoofer boxes, i posted a link of my amp install, if you want to build an amp rack

i custom made that mount to attach to the bracket that runs behind the carpet. and the subs should face the rear bumper. You get the best sound there because of the way the sound waves travel.

I ran everything underneath the carpet for a stealth look, and am very happy with the way it turned out.
