    Ok i just got a sound system, Infinity Kappa 6X9's, Kappa 5 1/4 components for the front, and two Infinity Perfect Component 10 subs for the trunk... now here is my idea (if yall have one better let me know... when you open the trunk the side where the frame is... i'm thinkign about having light weight custom boxes built for both sides of the trunk... or would it be better if they were in a standard box torward the back seat?..... input much appricated.. thanks...

    You can do any kind of box but make sure they are facing towards the back because you get better sound that way.

    Not necessarily... orientation AND position of the speakers both matter.

    For the infinity subs, I would recommend doing a dual sub slot ported box, NOT BANDPASS.... You can get away doing this box and keeping tight bass response because the suspension on those subs is fairly decent. And definately fire the subs off of the back of the vehicle, the dB Rollover you get from the reflective soundwaves makes the sound incredibly louder 95% of the time...... I've seen this methodhurt sound in some situations, but very rarely.

    Kove Audio is awesome stuff if you can get your hands on it.... There are exceptions like this where you use large coned subs and high power.... For example, my G/F's 96 Eclipse has 2 Diamond TDX 15" subs w/ a spec built ported box.... I fired the subs toward the rear to begin w/ and Metered a 154, faced them forward and they quit cancelling out off the back of the car, and metered a 157.6. Imaging is everything....

    yea, they're prices are high and they only sell high end stuff, which is good for bentonville, its a 99% rich population, but you still need to sell some stuff that isn't as high end, like that other place does over by 504 (i think that is the huge highway from ft smith to bella vista) and the road is... fuck, i can't think.. i think walton blvd and it turns into something.. they sell alpine and kicker.. where as marconi you have cadence, ID, and i think Infinity for speakers and zapco and cadence for amps.. or so it did back then.


    And i'm from okla originally, tulsa? hmm, i wonder if Gary Biggs had anythign to do with that install..

    To answer the question... I would face the subs towards the back if possible. And Perfect subs are designed for sealed enclosures. If you put them in a slotted box it might ruin the suspension. If you wanted to do the two box setup here is a link of a system like that:

    It takes some fiberglassing to get it right though.
