Nice idea but be careful closing the boot with stuff inside. If you have a sub i guess you could use some slimline 6" coaxials instead. Nice job...

yea its the factory boot carpet i went for the 6x9s coz it filled the boot lid more i didnt really wanna go 4 6in speakers (to much work)

for the sound deading i used silicone and liquid nails :lol:

for the foam thats stuck between the boot and the carpet i used this foam i got from work its like bubble wrap but better

btw i got 2 12in subs facing the rear of the car so with the mix on subs and 6x9s the sound in nuts while driving u dont even notice them

i still aint finshed it yet i cant find the other speaker pod once its finshed sometime today i'll so some completed photos with subs and maybe gay wanky neons hahaha :lol:

Not too sure what the point of this is unless you are going to use them as a party system with the boot open......

If that's what it's for, I reckon you've done a great job..... otherwise.... why?

Chuck some black loom tube over the speaker wire, just have to neaten that part up a bit because it sticks out.
