    since the alpines are labeled as "front, rear" i would assume the subwoofer

    I plan to stuff the bracket mounts under slits in the carpet and leave only the mounting screws showing.

    The Rf T3002 doesn't fit where i wanted it. i have a JL 500/1 in the mail to replace it. (If any of you want the t3002 i'm open to offers.)
