Installation Description

I bought this car new in March of 2004. As soon as I took it off the lot I took it to AMS in Madison, WI to get the sounds bumping! After about $4k I think I've done that. I wanted to keep the weight down, and keep as much of it hidden as possible. I had custom kick panels installed to fit the larger 6.5" speakers replacing the factory 5.25" stock speakers. We decided on going with a sealed box for the 12w7 and sealed it into the cab of the car which rocked. By doing this gave a real nice crisp sound. Overall very satisfied - with one 12w7 was able to hit 133 db in sound test.
