    Icon32 Rear deck removal

    I own a 92 Caddy Deville. My back seat in the vehicle does not let down. Right now it sounds like most of the bass is trapped in the trunk so I trying to find a way to get more bass into the vehicle.

    My installer suggests that I should remove the rear deck. He says that he can cut out the hole rear deck and fab some kind of mesh grill to cover the area up to make it look like the deck is still there but that it will let more bass into the vehicle.

    Has anyone ever has this done?

    Is it worth it or a waste of time?

    Worth it if you vent the box through the rear deck. It would make a little difference just simply cutting a hole and fabricating a grill cloth cover.

    Well caddys have very very tightly sealed trunks. I think it would help quite a bit, assuming it doesn't cost too much.

    Re: Rear deck removal

    Looks like I just sold my car so it doesn't manner now.

    Right now I'm have a hard time figuring out what I want.

    I usually stick to GM so I looking a a Monte Carlo SS, Grand Prix GTP, or a Yukon.

    I would love to own a 96 Impala SS but the price on them right now is not cutting the mustard.

    Definately the GTP. The new SS looks like poo, imo.

    Re: Rear deck removal

    Well I bought an Acura Legend.

    The trunk in this vehicle is also sealed air tight like my caddy, so I'm goinig to look into the rear deck removal idea again.

    GTP's are solid and are great for bass. My friend has one. Easy bass transfer from the trunk into the cabin.

    Re: Rear deck removal

    Well it looks like my wife wants the Acura Legend we bought so I might be driving the 02 Mountaineer we own that she has been driving.

    If this is the case then of course the back deck is not an issue anymore.

    Re: Rear deck removal

    You are so lucky for that. I took my car into a reputable car audio shop. They couldn't even get my rear deck out lol. I gave up.
