    Due to the uneven trunk floor and tight spacing we had to do it this way. Ish made a custom box that is contoured to the floor.

    you're doing very good work and the car looks great --- i LOVE the hood.

    i do have one complaint thought - the "hallmark" of that new 'stang are the two center grille headlights --- giving it a very retro 60's look. the new fascia installed removed those two big honkin lights and put small ones in more discrete locations... it breaks my heart!!! :(

    that sub box does look VERY mean though - two big honkin 15's - its just like DOMINATING the trunk. i'm diggin it.

    by the way - the whole theme of htis thread is friggin hilarious - good job!

    I'd personally rather not, but let's not rag on him in his own thread.

    You dare to question P-Thuggy?!?

    The Polk MM2154DVC's have the potential to go deeper than any other Polk subs that are currently available from Polk. DUH!

    If Polk wants to send me some SR Sub's that go deeper, that aren't available to the public, I will gladly accept. :D

    Why do I own TWO SVS subs?!? Because I can MOTHER[BLEEPERS]!!!

    Experimenting with putting Polk tweeters in the lower pods. Boost gauge will go above it on the driver side.

    Putting the tweets in the A pillars is a good idea as it will raise and widen your soundstage. However, take care when firing them right at you. They could be a little harsh and it will drastically pull your stage to one side.

    Just a thought.

    Yeah I'll have to play with the aiming and -3db/-6db switches on the crossover.

    Tomorrow, the front struts, springs, sway bar and rear LCA's are going in. I predict smokescreen burnouts tomorrow night, followed by me cracking the front fascia while trying to pull in my driveway.

    Sounds like fun.

    And, the -3/-6 setting on the crossover may not be enough. Do you have some adjustments on your HU? What are you using for a HU?
