Oh and the box doesnt actually stick as far into the trunk as it looks like its even with where the larger part of the seat folds down on the side of the trunk and it sits up off the floor a little bit so i can still get to my spare tire anytime i need to. I would say i retained about 85% of my trunks functionality. What does everyone think?
Nice use of space and I think it looks great. Good job, nothin like doing something yourself from scratch

How much did you spend on your trunk setup, Ken?

(If you don't mind me asking that is )

All the MDF was about $15. Suede was $7 a yard, and I used about 3 yards. Sub was $99. Amp was $50. Box cost me about $10 to build.

About $195.

Actually, here's a good question. Have you ever bought a mod at MSRP? or actually have you ever bought a mod at more than 90% of MSRP?
