stereo system

i have 2 twelve inch treo subs an a 1200 watt treo amp. I havnt decided if i want to hook these up or get rid of them and get new speakers/amp to replace the ones in it. Need opinons. Also if i do decide to keep them what is the easiest way to run wire into the trunk with least as possible showing.

Depends if you value booming bass over trunk space.

Personally, I value trunk space. You can put 8-10 inch subs in either the rear deck or rear quarters. You would build a couple of boxes for the rear quarters, but there is no room to build an enclosure in the rear deck. For the deck, you would simply get free-air or infinite baffle compatible woofers.

I put two 8" subs in the rear deck.

You can easily run wires to the trunk by removing the lower door sill cover, and the rear seat.

Regards,

Gary

well, just a quick update on my system, ive been working on. it's been awhile since my last post on this topic. Anyway, I am up to a Kenwood DDX-512 stereo, (4) 6 1/2 infinity, (2) 6 1/2 infinity component (set), Kicker 650 x4 (4channel) amp... and it sounds great! My final intallation will be (2) Kicker Solo Barics 12" w/custom box, 1500watt Kicker amp,and custom lighting in the trunk to match my cars color. I will post pics of the finished product...
