It really shouldn't make much of a difference in components, just the techniques to take the speakers out.

You could do it on the floor of the trunk and make it liftable, mount it on either side, or hang it from the roof of the trunk. (The last one might have some critics.) It's up to you.

I'm installing the stealthboxes in my rear deck and have only removed the rear speakers. (No subs installed yet) I already think the car sounds better. There are many true audiophiles out there who never put in "rear fill" as they feel it confuses the sound stage. I'm now agreeing as I only have sound coming from the front and I think it sound s great. Can't wait for the subs and replacement speakers!
