stereo setups?

I'm an audio buff too and all my rides have a nice stereo in them. was wondering what or how you have done subs in your rides. I've seen the one through the back seats on crusty's car, and I like that, but I'm looking to see who else has done something audio with their car. mild to wild show some pictures.

I just have a set of enclosed 3 way speakers sitting on the package tray running off a AM/FM tape player I bought from KMart years ago. It has the adjustable knobs so I didn't need to mod the dash at all to install it. Not the best system, but I usually don't even have it on, would rather listen to the engine!

well, it's really not my daily or anything, so I'm thinking big. I was going to build an angle wall close to the trunk opening with a flat surface with my 2 rockford 12"s with my rockford amp set in between the two below the face of the box and cut the piece that covers the amp with the pontiac emblem, fill that with plexiglass in the opening and pleximirrors all around the amp itself and run some red Neon's or LEDs to allow the amp/pontiac emblem to glow when the amps remote is powered on. I need to do a lot of measurement of my trunk though as I need 2 cubic feet of air space for each sub and port room which can be adjusted based on the surface area of the port itself.

here is a quick mock up of the wall. wall dimensions are not exact, guessing 60 inches wide and 40 inches deep, those can change without problem. thinking of this to start, will likely add a second amp to power 2-4 6x9 speakers for external music at car shows. probably have to put another battery in it.

setup will be 2 rockford HE subwoofers 12" and a 750s amp running each sub right in their RMS range.

thinking I will likely leave the pontiac symbol open and either have chrome diamond plate or mirrors under the amp with the red glow through.

thoughts? carpet or vinyl covered? car will be black

I have an 8" True Bass sub in a t-line enclosure with the port and sub facing towards the cab. Its mounted on the rear deck. Amp is a OS Xtant 3150x running the sub and a set of Kicker KS comps in my kicks. I had the original radio modified to have am/fm/aux but look original. Got a PAC adapter to get the speaker signal to RCAs.

Virginavenom- You already have the RFs?

I have quite an assortment of RFs. this system will consist of 2 RF 12" HEs and 1 RF Punch 750s.

in addition to that I have 2 HE2 12" subs and 2 power 501bd amps a 450s and a 501s. I also have an MTX 10" cheapo.

I have pioneer speakers for the lemans and I run infinity kappa's and RF rears in my 03 cobra.

are you planing on eliminating the rear seat or is that box rear facing in the trunk? either way thats PLENTY of base- I would match the interior madrid grain vinyl to wrap the box with. I think the lit Pontiac logo will look sick
