    Heres an idea. Get one of the 04 XXX's when they come out w/ the chrome on the back, make a box with a plexiglass window and stick a baby blue neon in it. Get a hifonics bx1500 with the baby blue hifonics and mount it with a baffle over it to hide the wires. theres lots of setups that look cool if you look around you can find them.

    Re: mits eclipse

    i think the best way to get jaws to drop is with a fiberglassed trunk, if done properly and carefully it will look very good. Can build your amps into it as well. Porting it can be extremely tricky, so if you were to go that route sealed would probably be better. if you search through cars on www.sounddomian.com or www.cardomain.com you will see many different examples, it really does look awesome if you can afford to give up your trunk. You could also build a spare tire enclosure, well im not sure if the eclipse has this, but if the spare tire is in the trunkunderneath a board, you remove the tire (hope you don't get a flat) build a frame out of wood, fiberglass the whole thing, then build a new board that has a hole for the sub in it, granted its a bit more complicated than that,but does loook good, and can normally get about 2^3 ft out of it. that probably got confusing haha, but if you want some realtime help feel free to contact me on aim: nosaj070

    Re: mits eclipse

    ok thanks for the info it has helped a lot, thinking about the fiberglass box sealed, and that taking out the wheel thing, no thanks. seems a little to complicated for my liking. And what would you think a green light instead of a blue one. i like green and its what i want for color. but what exactly is this 04 XXX's is it an amp or a sub or box, or what, like I said i am pretty new to all this stuff. And any ways i can build this box myself or would it be easier to just buy one. thanks a bunch you are helping a lot.

    Re: mits eclipse

    heres the 2004 xxx http://forums.caraudio.com/vb/showthread.php?t=45281 its a ****** sub. i say if you have the room do a 15 and if you want to do the fiberglass thing, its a lot of work but if you have the time then do it. if you dont have any wood cutting tools it is worth it, just pay for somebody to make you a speaker ring when you do it all. read up on the fiberglassing tutorials on the top of this forum. the reason i said go w/ light blue is because if you get a hifonics 1500 (amp) it has a baby blue light up that says hifonics and it looks pimp. if you are set on the green, you can get an xtant amp, those look really cool. just keep reading about different setups heres some things to read about - false floors, false walls, plexiglass, fiberglass, motorization, baffle boards, if anybody else has some other things to search about then just leave a msg on here.
    also, it wouldnt be that complicated to do a ported box if you have the room out of fiberglass. just make a ring for 2 port tubes and make sure it can be long enough and measure the volume w/ packing peanuts then get somebody to figure out your port length with the volume and size of the ports you will be using.
