Default Sub install @ Milton Meet...Hey Jim can you hear me!? Jim!!?

So Saturday I, along with Jim and PeterG headed to Brad'* to get my 2 subs hooked up. The total install took only a bit over 3 hours. With 4 guys helping out things go a lot quicker. And considering Brad has done this several times, I didn't think we'd have any problems. And we really didn't have any problems.

In the driveway, representing my fictitious homeland:


My traditional meet pose:


Spare switch used to turn the subs off when I'm driving by a church or something. PeterG was happy to install this.

I will DEFINITELY get a night pic of the amp (courtesy of corvettecrazy) asap.

Thanks again Brad! I am pretty confident I could do this on my own in the future.

The box is not complete as evident from the pics. I may cover it in carpet to match the trunk, or I may do something even more creative with it. I haven't decided yet. The important part is done, and it pounds extremely well, and with less rattling than I thought!

Well, now that we're buddies. I'll teach you horribly filthy signs and tell you the wrong meaning of it (on purpose) And introduce you to deaf people and tell you to use the newly accquired signs and I'll tape it then send it in to America'* Funniest Home Videos.

And to keep this on subject, I like the box, I would suggest doing something creative instead of covering it with carpet

I suggested factory trunk carpet to wrap it and look like a factor install of some sort, another idea that came to mind was getting some counter top vinner in a marble finish or something and covering it with that


but finnished or not Its still a killer box, and pumps like crazy!
