    Looking for ideas as to what can be done.

    I need to keep the functionality of the spare tire in the wheel well.

    Thanks

    oh your welcome. it's just sometimes people take offense when someone else tells them there's already a link for it. i've asked question on here before and i know there is a link but can't find it as you mention because of the parameteres. i hope that link is helpful, mine is on there which i plan to update as soon as i throw in my other hi's amp plus another battery and another 15" if i can make the custom enclosure to fit them in there. and i want to put another layer of phat-mat on there as well.

    I removed the trunk matting from the floor of the trunk. Slid my sub box in. Made the beauty boards for the wall and sides. Then cut and wrapped a false floor. If I need to, I can remove the floor and side walls in a matter of seconds. It makes for EASY access to the spare tire and anything else. Battery, power inverter, spare tire, spare trunk mat, etc.

    Here's a quick shot of my trunk set up. Check my photo gallery to see more. I still have access to my spare but I keep a 9-iron in the well to prop up the trunk floor.:cool:

    Thanks Everyone for the help. Rollin LS, do you have any pics that were taken mid setup or with more detail. I think something like this is how I am going to go. Access to spare is important to me.

    Right now I have an amp mount where the spare would go. When I take long trips, I move my amp for the trip and put a spare tire there. The amp will be permanantly moved soon, since I have etched glass above it and you cannot see the amp anymore.

    All the lower pieces are cut exact and are pressure fitted. Go in easy and come out easy. Back piece has two hidden screws that are easy to take out. It is also pressure fitted.

    is it hard installing subs and amps on these cars. It should be pretty easy since the battery is at the bac. What should i get too make it less harder on my battery, good guage wiring? Power converter? Should i run 2 12's or one big 15? Does it rattle in these trunks? Whats a good way to prevent rattling? Can the stock deck run subs and amps? Or im i better of getting a dvd unit?

    Thanks

    Stock deck will run anything as long as you wire it in correctly. First question you have to answer is how loud do you want it. Stock system with subs then you need a rca converter for the amp, amp, subs, box, and amp kit. If you want it louder then you need aftermarket head unit, new mids and highs, good subs, good amp, and good amp kit. I would replace the Head unit, unless you have Nav. Yes they do rattle alot. Before installing your system, pull everything out of the trunk, including carpet. This goes for the decklid too. Use dynamat or whichever affordable knockoff you want to get and coat the whole trunk, then cover it back up with the carpet. Dont forget to cut out a piece of thin foam to go behind your license plate. I think alot of rattle makes your luxury car look and sound like @ss.

    Hmmm i yeah im not looking for anything to loud. Just some thump. Hmm so they rattle alot seems like you have to do alot of work to make it sound nice. i also agree with the rattling it makes your car sound and look ugly.

    Thanks man. That is exactly what I wanted. Basic, clean, access to the spare, and retain at least half of the trunk space. I wasn't wanting anything too loud so I kept my other 12" type R for a spare when I blow this one (had the two running in my previous vehicle). I'm glad someone noticed the Kicker grill... I saw it and had to have it. I didn't feel too bad about mixing brands since it doesn't say "kicker" on it. :rolleyes:

    There's not a piece of equipment in your trunk that I haven't installed, wouldn't mind having in my own car, and would stand behind em.. good stuff.. I'm not sure I could forget the kicker grille... If the garage was slow for a day we would polish em or paint em (high gloss colors) they were always big sellers...

    what kind of an amp are you running it with? my friend just bought two of them and he only had one amp to the both and it sounded drowned out. but when he had them individually they hit hard. so he got another amp. maybe your problem is that you don't have the ohm's matched up properly. go through all the settings on your amp and make sure you have the sub hooked up properly.
    also, sometimes the settings on your deck are messed up sometimes. are you running it with the stock radio? if it's aftermarket there should be settings to adjust.
