it was more for look. I figured 2 10" sealed would hit nice and clean. I wanted to put 6.5 separates in the C pillar (moulded facing you)6.5 in the door and mirror corner. If I can't put subs in the deck I will put a window in it into the trunk. I can reinforce the rear deck with some tubing. I think you could only get away with 8" subs in the arm rest side seat area. Not sure though. Oh ya I don't have a ski hole. the car is a 84 remember?

sounds pretty crazy! cant you just use a newer seat and cut out the hole? pass through can sound really good if it's ported perfectly. and no trunk rattles cause all the sound is going into the cab

I just redid the seats in 2 tone leather. I don't want to do it again. I am sure i can port the subs from the trunk. Thing is i dont want the entire trunk used. I have some plans for the trunk.

so there is no pleasing you...


ok.. here is what you do..

-glass the rear deck (use a large port in the middle and vent your bandpass dual 10's or 12's through there. keep it very clean and smooth, that way you don't have to cut the deck that much and you can do a plexy rear window on sub box)
-build pods in the side of the rear seats for some nice 6.5 component
-build pods for either the front kick.. or door for an additional set of 6.5 component.
-finish off with super bright blue LED accent lighting..

and come to bimmercruize and try and beat what i'm going to do

btw.. do you have MSN? i'm ryanswim@hotmail.com

No Fiberglass, please ! Depending on the color of the interior, stitched leather dash looks awesome, I'd love to get that done, but that's just me.

i'm against it unless for show purposes. I am pretty sure fiberglass dashes are really unsafe in an accident.

now that the lecture is over, how many speakers, video screens, and neon lights will be in the dash??

Ryan, think of how easy it would be to clean the fibreglass dash.

I vote for stitched fabric.. black suede.

see i have been thinkin about the glass dash as well due to the fact mine is cracked sooo bad and its hard to find a replacement around here. i think if you did a glass dash them some how covered it in something just so it wasn't so damned shiny you would have a nice dash that wouldn't crack. as for sub inclosures i was going to drop my back seat and do four tens and then have the 6.5s in the rear deck still with another set of 6.5s in the rear seat pannels.

I not so sure if it would look that hot at all! kinda ricey maybe?
but who knows, so maybe just do it, if its affordable enough to be able to throw it away after lol
It may look different infront of our eyes!
Its allllll about experimenting
