nice job.

on the back of the rear seats would be fine, but under the front seats would be good b/c its more secure. you could also make a fiberglass amp rack to match the other side.

Thanks guys!! Umm regarding the seats...I cant mount them under the front..not enought room and the back seats are split fold down...Plus that 600.2 amp is 25 inches long...dont really have room to put it under any seat or back of seats...also the battery is in that back right location under the black plastic cover thing..

Do you mean put them on the floor...kinda like the pic i have? Should i angle them so they face out or just flat?

whatever you think is best. personally, i think it would look cool to have it opposite of your sub at an angle.

Yah, that would look nice.

ya i think i want them kinda opposite so it has kind of a balanced effect....maybe just twist them sideways kinda and keep them to the rightside...

i would put it just like you have the sub. glass an amp rack on the opposite side just like the others said.

and thats one hell of an install, looks great.

quick question.

how hard was carpeting the fiberglass. i would think the carpet would fold and wrinkle since its not a flat surface.

it was a little hard, i only had one seem in the whole thing and you can even notice it, but i used this stuff by 3m call Super77 adhesive spray. That shiat really holds!! otherwise it was cake!

lol wow i cant even see my pictures??? lol hmm well on the carpet part, actually the carpet on my enclosure looks lighter in the pictures than it does in persona, it was as close to the factory color as it gets...**** BMWs but i got it at Menards...its a home improvement place...like home depot or lowes..lowes had something similiar but menards stuff was just so much more of quality and color!! BTW i live in Omaha,ne so i dont know if there are any other menards??
