That reflective racing stripe is badass. Where did you get the material for that? that'* giving me a lot of ideas.

Nice sound system, though I can't say I'm too horribly fond of Kicker square subs.

Be careful with the exhaust. Its very, very difficult to make a 3800 sound good. Loud is one thing. Good is another thing.

What model MTX'*? They make some great subs, but you can only go so far.

Square subs by design are less efficient than round subs. I can dig up the science behind it if you're interested. They're great for SPL though. I had a Kicker L5 a long time ago. It got stolen, and I can't say it was any louder than the Alpine R12 that replaced it, but it wasn't bad either. Any mods as far as the stereo speakers go?

I'm running Polk Audio DB5250'* up front, DB690'* in the rear (100W RMS each for all 4), powered by two Kenwood two-channel amps at 170W RMS x2 @ 4ohms *each* (really freakin loud), and a Hifonics 1600W @ 1 ohm mono amp pushing a Hifonics 15" 1600W @ 1 ohm sub in a custom built 3.25 cubic foot box tuned to 31hz. It will put a 17" L7 in its place, but needs a really big box. So big in fact that I doubt I could build one to fit my trunk for two of them.

Probably should upgrade my alternator at some point...

Welcome to the site btw.

my hole system was Mtx until last week I got it all free!! I was sponsored by them back in 1995 to 2000
my fronts MTX Audio TXC6.16-1/2" 2-way Thunder Axe High End Component System in the doors
and 1 extra set MTX Audio TXC.11" (25mm) Thunder Axe High End Teteron Dome Tweeters

I deleted the 6 x 9 '* out of the rear deck so we could use the locations as ports for the subs
