First... Congratulations, looks great.

Second... ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME?!
How did you get that box in? I have the same one... I tore it apart to get the p1s out and bought another box today! I'm so mad now that I know I went through all that trouble and spending almost another $100 on my system for NO reason!!!! I could have gotten a cap. CRAP CRAP CRAP!

Again, good job getting that in -- HOWEVER you managed it?!

EDIT:
Guess: You took out the floor to have access to the spare tire well and went down at an angle?? :\ I didn't even think about that back 4 or 5 months ago when I tried. Ugh. :(

lol a buddy and i just took out the bottom of the rear seats and the driver side rear seat, slid the fron driver seat up and there was like a centimeter of clearance. put the amp on the back, against the back of the rear seat and your set.

Tried it... didn't work.
Subwoofer install fail. :)
At any rate, I got something in the trunk now that pretty much slams, P1s just like you..
How do you like the sound in your ride?

I was blasting some Boom Boom Pow as soon as I got them in. Walked into my office a 25-minute-drive-later with a headache. lmao

Will I do it again when I get back in my car? You bet your ass I will! :)

the amp? yea fersher.i just gotta find like a 1200w amp at a decent price first lol
17... sweet. you're starting out with quality equipment and not crap like I did. I started on audiobahns from ebay and a crap-rated 2000w not a typo, TWO THOUSAND WATT amp... yeah... 2000 watt minus like 1900 watts

Anyway, it's cool you are starting out with good stuff. I'll never have anything but Rockford in my cars.

Looks good, however i had 2 12"s in a box in my car and i thought it ws too much,weighed down the car for sure and too much bass even with the speakers an amp properly tuned, Iam going with 1 10" JL Audio sub for quality and plus it frees up a lot of space in the trunk

I haven't noticed the weight, although I just put them in this morning. Going to get gas here in a while and reset my mileage and make sure I'm staying right around 31 mpg like I was pre-install.

As for TOO much bass... if it's too loud you're too old. jk. You do have a good point. I'm kinda wondering if I shouldn't have went with ported in the little car. A sealed box probably would have given it better "punch". Oh well. Now I just need to get some tweeters installed to equalize the bass a little bit because right now, as you said, it is a lot and it's kind of overbearing to the point you have to put the subs on low and turn the head unit clear up.

Might look at a 4 channel amp to clear up that problem with a kit. I don't know - I'm talking a lot of money here that I don't have at this point. lol

open your trunk and look down at the latch. Unscrew the 2 hex heads, move the latch down a bit and screw it back in. Trunk should close real tight. No shaking hardly compared to when it's factory loose lol.
