Installation Description

My brother had the system in his truck, so since he's going to college, I decided to modify my future car. First I built the box myself out of MDF. After the completion of that, I upholstered the box with a black fleece-like fabric. Then I screwed everything in and fed all the wires up to the stereo and battery under the carpet.This system rocks and sounds great.
