I did not do much in my car.
What I have in my car:

1. Boschmann 1800W 2chn amp for the sub
2. Boschmann 600W 12" subwoofer
3. Boschmann 2-way speaker 280W
4. Boschmann amp kit 4 gauge power, ground wire.
5. Boschmann extra - amp kit 5 metre
6. Boschmann 6*9" 3-way speaker
7. Boschmann 1000W 4Chn amp

Tinted windows, stickers on the windshield, and stickers by the two front doors.

It looks not as great comparing to the full modification import / domestic cars. But it looks very nice already. Good enough for normal driving. The audio system is very good. First time using Boschmann as in full system.

The only thing it is not Boschmann audio.. is the deck itself.

Can I ask do you guys have a solution with the spare tire. I mean by that keeping the spare tire but having a nice system more like one of the few shots that were take in the beggining of the post, with the amp on the floor, and the subs in the back. I am having a delema trying to figure out some way to keep the spare tire intact but having a sick set up.

That depends on your definition of the word "nice" and how it relates to the trunk install.

I personally do not consider the artful, sometimes distasteful displays of metals, lexan, neon and painted junk as "nice"

More often then not these such setups are designed to impress at car shows, not to sound good, or be useful in a daily driver.

That said here is my nice, purposeful, excellent sounding, fairly lightweight, and clean install.




I still have a full size matching spare. I still have loads of trunk room to haul junk.

Gee, thats kinda funny. Mine has all that lexan, neon and metals and I can hit 162 Db and quite an amazing SQ. Testing was done with my LinearX PCRTA Jr so that is not bullshit by ear. Did you ever have your car on a RTA?

You can be creative as you want, there is no limitations with creativity when you build your system. Some people are just more creative then others. Do the research, don't base your system on only one opinion (to me, the "clean look" looks weak) and decide on the parameters such as what kind of music you listen to, how much you are willing to designate to enclosure volume, and most importantly, how much do you want to spend. When you are ready, make a mock up of the system so you will be happy with the finished product.

I didn't say all show type systems sounds like shit. I simply said that MOST are not designed with SQ as a #1 concern.

I've never liked bling bling setups. They look like shit, they more often then not do not sound good, they made the cars back seat/trunk/sometimes front seats completely useless for day to day use etc.

If you are all about bling bling showing it up, then more power to you. Any car with neon on it (anywhere) is crap IMO. Yours has alot of neon, blue at that...

$400 for materials and two months of your life for planning and construction. $800 and four months if you don't plan it.
