Placed 1 15" MMATS P2.5 400wrms sub in trunk 4" ported around 33 Hz approx , sub & port on slanted front of box which is about 2.8cuft
Both sub/box & amp was both bought used in very good condition from 1st owner - HU & DLS r brand new

Powering whole system is a Crossfire VR705 5 channel amp 50Wx4 RMS @ 4ohms with 300Wx1 on the sub

well there it is folks - no need 4 me 2 show u wires cause all have been neatly hidden under trim/carpet & u will never know/ see that its there

Sounds quite loud with a slight trunk rattle & front windscreen vibrating a bit noticeably but clean & the difference over stock 'system' & new real system is like night & day ...

......owner was pleased......

You making the boxes yourself, too?

I've been thinking of doing the same... but most people dont trust a 16 year old with this kind of stuff, unless he works at a shop... which i soon might be :P

You just doing them for friends, or are you advertising?

i do all install incl boxes by myself

used 2 do it 4 friends/family but when its done i'm still itching 2 do more hook ups so i decided 2 do this now
well i dont really advertise since i dont want alot of ppl wanting me 2 do installs when i already have my reg job but i kinda advertise in a way by putting in my sig on a local forum that i do installs ,gotten quite a few PMs so far but this is actually the 1st job from it . Another guy has been asking me 2 redo his stuff so maybe i will get that small job too .....

Nice install Rovin, but it looks to me like you ran the power wire right beside the hot engine without any splitloom. Isn't that a bad spot? Seems like the heat would endanger the integrity of the wires insulation, but thats just me. Nice job though.

^^^thats a good point - its supposed to have some loom over that wire but we didnt have any around since it was wk end & shops here were closed & we just forgot all about it -lol
