    Never even thought of that, where do you do it, I feel like it wouldnt stick to the plastic on the tire side
    Lol! It's a work in progress. Anyway I just deadened the hump on the inside of the trunk underneath the carpet for the tire.

    @SourDeez ; that's the wheel well we're talking about here. If you have a newer car, taking out the carpeted areas is a bish (definitely is in my VW), but it definitely has an impact. I'm probably not going to get into doing it in the trunk area of the VW for a while since I need to fix the rear suspension first. Definitely needs it though. Have some wicked buzzing from the quarterpanels just rear of my wheels. The trunk lid, surprisingly, doesn't make a peep.

    Re: Cadillac Eldorado build

    just an FYI... I had an '00 ETC and it was loudest with the sub facing the rear over on the passenger side and the port firing out the side on the drivers side. sub/port back did a high 146, same everything except with the port to the drivers side, did a 148.9

    15"/2Kw . Those things are not easy to get loud! Funny though, that car had virtually zero flex pushing 150dB. I also didn't have any rear deck porting but I did open up that pass through behind the armrest.

    This post helps me out very much. Thank you good sir!!! Did yours have the motorized trunk.? How did you remove the trunk motor in order to port the armrest? Any pointers would be much appreciated.

    Not sure what you mean by that...? The trunk motor is on the latch, nowhere near the rear seat/armrest area... All I did was remove the leather cover (you can see when the armrest is down) and then cut a big hole out of the plastic that held all the computers and **** back there.

    here's what I did with the piece of leather.

    Nice! That's some creativity right there! I mean I never took a close look at it but mine looks like the motor is pretty much up against the back seats (from the trunk). I've been thinking of porting the arm rest I think you just made my decision to do so.

    Re: Cadillac Eldorado build

    might wanna look at that again, not sure how that would work if the motor was against your seat. They look basically like a window motor and are just under the cover... heres one: http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d1...Picture201.jpg

    didn't see what year yours is but I would imagine they're the same. My ETC had a bunch of computers and relays and fuses and crap on a big plastic tray that attached to the back of the rear seat.

    Also, the fact like you apparently like BOSE makes me hate you. LOL I am a firm believer in "no highs, no lows... must be BOSE". I had factory BOSE in mine, when I bought it from the dealership, I told them I would only buy it if they removed that **** and put something, ANYTHING else in it. I ended up just getting some cheap Eclipse coaxials for a while before I did my subs and the rest of it. those TRC.6N's were monsters!

    Try a BMW that has the Logic 7 system. Much better than Bose. And, yeah, I've never seen a Bose system that didn't make me think it was overdone on the midrange.

    Yeah it does focus on mids a little much. The highs aren't harsh tho. Can't wait to get this cdt equipment in there.

    Yeah, it's a significant improvement. Just remember Bose overemphasizes their lower midrange so it will feel lacking at first on the CDTs. Just give it time and you'll warm up to it. It's miles ahead of the Bose in overall clarity.

    Just got done cutting into the backseat armrest, there's a bunch of factory wires/fuses and nonsense that's blocking off a good majority of the hole. Hopefully it helps. Will post pics tomorrow too dark right meow
