    2001 Mazda Tribute

    So, this is my 2001 Mazda Tribute, and the evolution of her.

    It started with one head unit.

    And then a 10 W1, Amp, Box, and Wiring kit for 100 bucks from a friend.

    Then some mods to get the amp working again.

    And finally 2 6x9's were added to the cargo area.

    Stock 6.5's all the way around
    Soon to add an 8" in custom center console

    The 6x9's make it look tacky. Do they serve a purpose facing that direction?

    Nice otherwise.

    Then a new box was put together, and the JL was upgraded to a W3.

    That's where Im at now, still need to carpet, put a door over the tool box, and mount my amps.

    When I would open the hatch to listen to it, too much bass and not enough mids/highs so I just added some 6x9's

    above the tool box area is that wasted space?
    If so I would recess the amp in there so it is flush with the top.

    Ya it is, so you are saying you would mount the amp up on that space? I originally wanted to put them on the back, but im definitely open to suggestions.

    Def recess the amp(s) in the top, it will look really good like that.

    cut a hole in the box on the back wall that faces the rear seat in the space above the toolbox area.
    That will bring all your wires into the area that the amps will be sitting in.
    It is pretty simple.
