    although im not a fan of the capacitor usage or the sealed box, that is definately a clean install. The amp rack looks darn good!

    its a ported box man.. things got like a 6 inch port right on the left side where the terminals are.. you cant see it because of the angle on the pics, i wanted to get the rack and not the left side of the sub.. thanks tho the amp rack took a lil while because its like a 6 peice assembly to get it to wrap around and flush out like that, but i banged it out in about a day with the help of some kids at work

    We have the same car

    Very clean setup, did the shop do most of the fabrication?

    ah okay. I've never used a kicker prefab ported box before, and im not usually a fan of any prefab boxes, but from what you say its doing you just fine. And that amp rack is definately worth the work!

    well i work at circuit city so all the work was done with the help of my buddies, as well as the install.. all the work was done in the shop but the fabbing was just with spare mdf and carpet we had laying around, my boss and i did the install, roughly with fabrication and such it took about 2 days

    thanks man.. the box seems to be doing its job, thing beats pretty hard, especially since i kind of have it underpowered using a simple 5 channel, but all in all for my budget the system sounds awesome, wouldnt replace anything with the money i spent

    Clean, but would ditch the prefab and I betcha it will sound even better with a custom enclosure off the same amp.

    I'd build another enclosure, but A+ on the amp rack

    If you aimed to get visual attention you certainly got that! The pieces of the system display nicely and the install looks uberclean, especially with what appears to be a flush-mounted amp. You got the carpet coloring going so well that if you had chosen to hide the amp and cap, then turned the sub to face forward, it would have been a stealth install to a casual passerby. Gray combined with the shape of the enclosure you built for the driver's side of the trunk make this install's look sweet!
