Heres my pics of my new subwoofers and amplifier and the custom install, the guys did a great job and it sounds amazing, the subs are kicker comp vr's and the amp is a JBL 1201.1. THyre in a sealed box. It is very loud but im 17 so i like it and since thyre in sealed boxes classic rock and such sounds amazing.

Umm actually its not bad at all.. the whole trunk is dynomatted except for the underside of the trunk lid which i am going to do soon, the only thing that rattles is the license plate and the bumper which i am going to fix. O ther than that it dosent rattle at alll, i was suprised.

... but im 17 so i like it...
Nice car!

Man. When I was 17 (in 1985), I had a 73 International Scout II that had more rust than metal. None of the tires were the same model or size. I had to reach down through the floor to shift the transmission using a pair of vice-grips connected to the tranny. It really sucked when it rained.

If I had your car when I was 17 ... :horror: :horror: :horror: :horror:

Enjoy it, but be careful .

Hey, a sealed box! Finally someone with a big stereo and an IQ above 5 :: Ported boxes are useless!:chainsaw: (oh and while I'm stirring up poo, I'll add in that caps are a ripoff) ::


Now for a proper test of that beast, get a copy of the Eagles Hell Freezes Over and crank up Hotel California :: Or, get a remastered copy of the Who's Babba O'Riley ::

How did you come to that conclusion? ::
They boom, not reproduce sound. Perfectly fine if you want to blow the hubcaps off your Honda :: For now, I'll stick with my sealed boxes, so I can hear it every time John Enwhistle hits a string ::

Ok , ill lend my opinion on that subject, it all depends on which subs yuou have , what you have the box tuned to, ands soo on. Also which kind of music you like, and all that, my first setup was a single 12 inch MTX with 800 watts in a 2 cubic foot ported enclosure and it was loud as hell, but yet very boomy and sloppy which is why i went ported, I like rap which ported is good for but i also like rock and all types of music so sealed was a better option for me, this gets WAY louder than before yet sounds absolutely amazing doing it. I like sealed but everybody has their preference

For a proper test I'd suggest Entwistle's "Heaven and Hell" from Live at Leeds -- heck, just throw the whole album on!

Point 1: A sealed box will have a "cleaner" bass sound than a ported box, but a ported box will give you more SPL. The best option is the one that sounds best to the owner.

Point 2: Play "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC on that setup, and laugh about how jealous I am! :)
