Mike2500 Hey Chief if you want to keep the space as I do try to do as I did, I cut a some 3/4 plywood the exact dimension of the storage & battery locker frame, carpeted with extra carpet that came with new replacement carpert kit and it is a good presire fit! I replaced rear 6x9's and mounted a shollow depth Kenwood 8" sub powered with a bridged 350 watt Kenwood amp. with the lowpass filter it will sound good and you can keep your space just mount it with a sub grill and nothing will hurt the sub and the amp is small enough you can place in the storage area also! I will take a pic tonight and post later! God Knows we as much room for a seabag as possiable If you would like just refer to me as EO1(SCW) Howard. Im with NMCB22.

Okie81 I put an amp inside the box. The front speakers were already replaced before I got it, and they sound fairly good.

Amp and dash speakers

Okie, did you replace the dash speakers and how about an amp?

Okie81 Well I measured across the top for the top measurement since it is straight across. I then cut the first piece that will be the front piece with no curves(rectangular). Then I took cardboard and marked it an trimmed until I had the pattern, I then transfererred that pattern to each end of the front piece and cut it with a jigsaw. I boxed the top and the bottom, the sides and back are open, except where the sub speaker is. I mounted the speakers and it worked fine. As you can see if you go no further down then the level where the strap attaches the tops will slide right in under the box, I do that all of the time. I covered it with marine grade vinyl after I cut the holes for the speakers. It actually slides in and out and is not permenantly mounted, it has to go in at an angle on one side first then the other so it holds intself in the car perfectly and can not move unless I want it too. I measured the inside of the box and hunted around on line and found an amp that would fit and mounted it longetudinally inside the box as well for a sub amp. The 6 inch sub speaker is a marginal performer, but does exactly what I wanted it to do. It only took me about an afternoon to build it in my garage. I hope that helps.

If I did yours, then you would miss the joy of doing something on your own! I hate to deprive a man of that satisfaction. But thanks for the compliments. It was actually the first thing I did after I bought the car. I am a tunes guy, I gotta have my music in the car, usually I plug my MP3 player into the head unit. I have straight dual 2.5 inch pipes with chambers and headers, no cats, I can still hear the music even with the tops off, it is nice!
