Ok before I show some pictures I am gonna say this would be the first thing I have built for my car.

False Floor Still needs to be capped on the end as you can see and I will be getting (2) Alpine Type R's later on and building a box. For now I am satisfied.

How Would You Cap The End Of The Floor? I need to be able to access it if wires should come loose but I don't think they will. All my amp controlls are under the silver pieces on the amps.

Considering this is my first build I think its ok. There is somethings I would have done diffrently but again im a noob with wood building.

If you notice the amps are not exactly flush so I am gonna have to somehow change that but for a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am Trunk it looks good....Suprised me its actually kinda loud for a sealed eclosure..

you gotta cover up that front area where those wood standoffs are. but it looks good however ;)

i would turn the box around. usually it is a little louder in trunk cars that way.

I have been told rear firing is better but I get more rattles and the sound diffrence is not noticable enought....Trunk is already jumping and hoping around.

I would just wrap another panel in carpet and put it in the gap to cover it up.

Thats what I was thinking...I could glue a piece of would in to the bottom board let it dry and wrap it in carpet so the floor can still raise up..

you could install a small hinge or 2 and allow a slat of wood to swing up in the front there.

whats the view from the trunk opening look like?

When trunk is open all you see is the box and the redtop on the left side...I did it cause I like the way it looks but it also seemed like a really good way to hide my wires. Im not done I want to cap the front and mount some blue l.e.d.s in the trunk to light it up..

I don't like rear firing...Personal preferance I know yall say its louder but then the rattles get louder..

who said it had to be rear firing? you could seal it from the back of the trunk and itll probably sound better, just a thought

So your suggesting sliding the box to the front and amps in the back??...Didn't think about that one..

I like the setup. especially the amps (and not just cause they have active cooling)

are the amps facing backwards?
