not to jack the thread here, but i just did some factory intergration on my wifes 07 nox. hers has the factory amp/sub wich is pretty lame. i removed the sub, and put the fronts on a pair of channles of a 4ch amp. the rear channles will be for a sub. i wanted to keep the factory head unit, casue it has factory sat radio and steeringwheel controls.

Well I finished building the box, besides Lowes not very good job at cutting wood (the very end up the left side of the port is probably 1/2 inch short), I think it came out pretty nice considering it is my first box. It is 7.75 cufeet tuned to 30 hz. Well here it is-

Yea and I also need to sand the sides because some of the glue dried before I could get to it.
