nice. Just curious, how did you exactly mount the amps so they're secure? They're not just screwed into that plastic panel are they?

Nice install regardless though. Looks nice when everything matches. I have 4 amps I no longer use from the Riviera and my 1st car, a LeSabre.. I'm going to go with a good 4 channel amp this time around to save the space.

nope that amps are mounted to the plastic and then wedged between the rear strut towers and then secured I got the best deal ever on these amps.....I got both of them new for less than a price of a used one. lets just say that you cant find more power for less money. yes the 4 channel will take up less space but the sub box will fit up against thoes amps

I been thinking about the same din and 1/2 setup with a HU and a parametric EQ.
How much room is left over and will it fit in a '99??

Looks Great!!!!!!!!!!!!

yes it will fit in there, i had just a little modification to the opening, but that was it. It will fill the whole opening and looks better than a single DIN
