Alright, I'm looking to install a sub in my trunk by the driver side wheel well. does anyone have any pictures of this done, how much it cost, if you made the box yourself, and if so what you did. Help much appreciated.

Cramer did mine, he is local to you, and did an amaizing job. He and Jamie both worked like dogs on it and it turned out wonderful!

Re: Custom sound systems. (zedcorrado)

no i don't i carry a spare, and know why its there, i was just wondering how often do peoples tires actualy blow or leak. I did 45-50K miles per year for 3 years and never had a blowout. just depends on where you live and drive i guess.
why is NY worse? pot holes or just running over stuff? I have never been there.

Re: Custom sound systems. (kevwithoutacorrado)

i haven't had a flat on the C in 5 yrs, but plenty on my other cars. basically a combo of pot holes and crap like nails, screws etc. coming back from waterfest my bro had a flat on the turnpike on fairly new tires on his C. Sucked.

Re: Custom sound systems. (LithiumProphet)

Breathes better? How's that? The only problem with fiberglass is that it tends to resonate easier, where MDF has a much lower resonance frequency. But nothing a good amount of dynomat from within and light coating outside couldn't fix. When choosing material for aqustical property, the most important is its resonance frequency, and ease of handling. MDF is just cut and paste, while Fiber, is paste, wiat, paste, wait......
