If the back seats are out and there is nothign between you and them, forward on both port and subs.

yup the back seat will be replaced by a 7 cf net ported box and the only other thing in the cabin will be the front seats.

Will it be a wall? Will the trunk be sealed off from the front?

no wall just a box...must be below/even with rear deck. sealed from trunk exceept the stock speaker holes in the rear deck

Ok, if it's sealed from the trunk... then fire sub/port forward.

If it's just a normal rectangular box... that will be on a false floor of sorts... chilling were the rear seat used to be... then sub/port rear into the trunk.

I know from experience.

So, I see your other thread?

Are you going to make a false floor where the rear seats were to place the box? And how are you going to seal/panel off all around the box?

floor is going to false but most likely will fill the void underneath with some fleece or poly-fil. the side panels will be deaden like hell and then have custom made beauty panels to compliment. The area which used to seperate cabin from trunk will be sealed off with 3/8" fiber board just for the sake of sealing it.

You're basically making it into something similar to a extended cab truck cabin... something I'm very familiar with... ;)

My g/f is from the Celina/Coldwater area... so I'll probably be up there many times this coming summer ;)

i'm assuming that picture represents using the trunk for the box space and the sub facing into the cabin

well if you look in the pic there is a big *** steel support running right down the middle of my trunk opening. Not to mention the openings themselves are only 13" and i will have 15"s. The baskets will BARELY if at all fit through one of the openings

thatll work too lol

Honestly you should have a problem if you cut out that center support. Its a frame car, the body just sits on there, if it was mine I would wack it out. Then if you are worried about it later if you sell it or give it to your son just swinf by a body shop and have them weld some box thubing there, it will be stronger than factory.

well if you look at the pic with the amps showing...that space up there is only 13.5 tall from floor to deck so i would have to run 12"s in there and i want 15"s for sure.

yea you are right, just sayin on the support. Do you plan on laying with the 20's on there? If so you are gonna have to modify some stuff, there is not alot of room in the fenderwells front or back. I have had 3 of those cars, to lay the back you have to notch the frame, you can take the springs completely out of the back and it wont lay
