I had a friend install mine, and he built a whole new floor in the back, using mdf(sp), there are quite a few pieces, the subs sit on their own piece which locks them in so they don't move. The amps also have their own floor piece, and all of the wires and the battcap are hidden within the amp box (tight fit). Then there is one big piece in the middle that locks everything in real nice! I would say if you took a piece of mdf and cut it to the same dimensions as the rear seat and then mount everything on that plywood you could probally get away with running the wires to the back side of the mdf and then just route out a channel for all of the wires. Then you can keep the carpet long on the bottom and let it just sit on the floor which should hide some of the wire. You could also use more mdf and build a piece where the subs would sit on top of it, and route your wire paths into the underside of the wood. Once you get past that little shelf in the back in front of the spare tire you can dive into that area and it will look really clean!

Check mine out at:
My Sub Install

Hope that helps.

I had a similar set up to this in my old E30, except I used a Phoenix Gold 12". THis Rockford 10" is good but I should have gone for the 12"

I wanted a fullrange audio system, but didn't want to loose all my trunk space or a add a lot of weight. This is bolted into the driver's side corner of my trunk, out of the way.

So guys, currently I don't have my subs in my car, but in a few days I will and I will post pics, but right now I really don't totally like having subs. They get annoying to me but at the right time, they are sick, I just dont like that huge box in my trunk, are there any good ideas you guys can think of for my system?

Bring it through the armrest?

never judge a speaker by peak wattage. RMS is all that matters.
