Keith R's 1999 Mitsubishi 3000gt

I've been with Crutchfield since 1999, where I began as one our advisors, helping our customers choose new gear. After a couple of years, I moved to the writing team where I spent a decade researching new products and getting hands on with car stereos, amplifiers, speakers, and subs. Yeah, I've been doing this for a while.

For the past few years, I've been the managing editor of Crutchfield's Car A/V web article content. I couldn't ask for a better job — we get to play with car audio gear every day! I'm a Virginia native from the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Outside of work, I love listening to music, playing board games, and installing new audio systems for my friends.

Installation Description


I started by removing all the trunks plastic and carpet parts. I used parts of the plastic inserts and cardboard to make templates for cutting the wood. I made the sub box out of $15 worth of ¾ MDF. I spent about $60 on marine grade black vinyl and foam purchased at a local fabric store. I wanted to maintain accessibility of my spare tire so I built around it.

    Very nice man. Sweet job! I have a 95 3000 GT I'm working on. Building the custom box is the challenging part.
