    Overcoming sealed off trunk

    My Cadillac eldorado trunk is sealed off from the cabin. The back seats do not fold down and the trunk lid is motorized. I've already cut a roughly 3x3 inch square hole in the deck. Helped a lot. But the output from my last system still lacked. I need some opinions on anyway I can fix this problem. Take the 6x9s out of the deck perhaps? Anything else? I plan on making the hole that I already made a lil bigger.

    I would go with taking out the 6x9s. Seems like an easy option.

    Get a new car

    And yeah.. removing rear deck speakers in these types of cars is a must

    It was my only option after the pressure coming from my trunk literally destroyed the suspension of the speakers (they froze up)

    Front Stage - Pyle 8 inch subs (1000 watt peak!!) - Polk DB6.5 (about to be CDT 6.5s)
    Rear stage - Deleted (stolen) - Deleted
    Sub stage - custom built 15 inch sony xplod (5k watt peak!!!) (huge box) - Two SA12's built by Corey
    Sub amp - Pyle 8000w peak!! (spl edition) - AQ2200
    Electircal - 35 amp alt from ford festiva upgrade, stolen battery, 28 gauge solder coil for my cable - Dual D34 Yellows, 1/0 trystar OFC, 135amp alt

    6x9s will come out bigger hole will be cut. Trunk deadened n all that good stuff. I had a pair of Hcca 12s on 4k in the caddy before, and my single w7 13 in my eclipse was twice as loud. If not more.
