Never said I did, just saying it could.

Not to mention it depends on the amp(*) he chooses as well, and how he mounts them.

Although, if he used 2 amps and a small sub, he could maybe build an amp rack that double-stacks the amps (leaving breathing room of course) and then has the enclosure on the top, then it would take up less room. Maybe, just a thought.

I mounted mine to the underside of the rear deck. You don't notice the amps at all when mounted there.

I was going to remove the stock amp and then mount the 2 amps there but with a good distance apart from one another.

A small 10" would be enough I don't really want to take up to much trunk space.. Appearance is a big thing for me I am not going to just throw this and that everywhere. I know a nice setup is going to cost money but I am also looking to spend a 1k. My range is between 400-700

you should be able to get a decent setup for that. i saw in the crutchfield ad rockford has these full power amps that are very small. i dont know anything other than that but the guy was holding it in is hand and it was small enough you could fit it behind or under the radio in the center console cavity, or under the deck with alot more room left over.

Not looking to spend a grand? Wow. I spent that on just HU, speakers, 4-channel amp, wiring, and install. Then I had to buy a new HU, another amp, sub, and a box. Hope you find some good deals.

he said he had the hu and speakers already so all he needs is the amps and sub. and the wiring can be a significant chunk too. as far as the box though, the people on here convinced me to build my own box to the sub specs and kind of music you listen to. 100 percent difference from the qlogic band pass i was using. its less money to build but it is alot of work, but to me its worth it.

I had my box custom built, since I and no friends at the time had tools to make a box. I've never had a pre-fabbed box. That'* just dumb.

I wouldn't say I was "educated" it'* just that the guy who built my systems for me doesn't do pre-fabbed. He builds everything from scratch everytime.

If you shop around online you should be able to get a great setup for 1k.

I have always been impressed with sonicelectronix.com '* service. I have also heard good things about Audio Savings, although I haven't personally dealt with them before.

Be careful with mounting amps to the rear deck though, some amps don't like being upside down.

My opinion? I think it would be cool as heck to make a false floor hiding the amps, and flush the sub in a spare tire well enclosure. That would, of course, mean you would lose your spare though. I'm not familiar with Bonne'*, but maybe you could make an enclosure using some of the dead space around the wheel wells, if there is any? That could be cool as well, almost look like stock if done right.
