I don't know where you live, but... wouldn't you be worried about theft with everything just sitting there???? Maybe I've been in the city too long... lol... but that's just my thoughts!
hell no dude im with you! i am even having my mom sew me a little cover to throw over my SAFC so that some one walking by wouldnt know what it is glancing in my window. faceplate it always off, amps are hidden so that even if you open the trunk you won't find em. sub is bolted in! only way to get my shit is to steal the whole car. and i live in the suburbs
i just dont trust people anymore
back on topic. what we are all saying here is that your idea is only a good one if you do not plan on daily driving this car. if you want to build a show car then pull out everything and make a custom set up. practical and functional are the two keys for a daily driver. this setup is showing practicality as of now. the weight you are adding at this point will hurt gas milage. also, it kind of sounds like you are not sure what you are doing. not being a dick or anything, but maybe you should do some more research before you attempt something like this.
ok so say i built a box attached in the trunk compartment what would the dimensions be that my subs would put out a good sound sumthing like a sub bought from canadian tire or sumthing..... thats then with the subs facing out but say i pointed the sub into the car.... What ya think...
every sub is different in the dimensions that it would want to sound proper. you need to rearch your subs before you try to build them a house. if you dont and guess, odd are your shit will sound like ass. do you know if your subs need a ported box? are they reccommended to only go into a sealed enclosure? there is a whole lot more to doing this the right way then stuffing a huge box into your car and thinking everything is going to sound fantastic.
