Glacier silver FTMFW!!!

I'm wanting to make a custom box which fits snug between the wheel wells so it doesn't slide around during spirited driving on curvy roads :D
All I can say is: Industrial strength velcro tape from Home Depot and that baby won't slide around if you're drifting (trust me, I used to in my crappy corolla lol) - I ripped the rug out of it's bolts before the box moved an inch.

Please elaborate Riki, keeping in mind that removing the subs is not an option :D
Did you look at my system build thread? I've mentioned it in other threads too, but I have a 15" sub in an infinite baffle behind the back seats. The trunk is the "box", or if you open the trunk then the cabin would be the box...

But basically there's just a baffle holding the sub(s) and the trunk and cabin are sealed from each other so theoretically, the front wave and back wave will never meet (same concept as a sealed box, without the spring/compression action).

I have not seen your system build thread no. I am quite interested to see it now though. This may be something worth considering.

Riki your set-up looks totally killer!! When the time finally arrives to revamp the current set-up the infinite baffle is something that will get serious consideration.

chris thanks a lot dude I'm looking forward to checking out your custom exhaust you made up :D

Just start a thread in the electronics section whenever you're ready and I'll try to help you out with whatever you try to do.

^^ 'Cuz he's awesome like that.

You know me, I'll probably throw my 1.5 cents in there as well. I'm nowhere near Riki but I've installed plenty of stereo systems in my time :)
