    How good would subs installed in the sidepanels without a box sound? Will I need to build a box in the side panel for it to sound good?

    it isn't as much about sound as it is about having the correct enclosure size... there are programs that can help with this, and I am sure that a box could be built into the sides that would accomplish this.

    however, I wouldn't just do it without finding out / purchasing subs for your specific application. I think you can get subs that don't require a box. I'd get a crutchfield catalog, and although I don't buy from them (prices WAY to high) they have great info in thier catalogs that would basically teach you all this / give you the various option.

    Cool, I have 1 more question (i think) How hard is it to install amps? Do you ground it to the body (where), then hook up the positive to the fuse box, battery? Thanks for the help.

    amps really aren't that hard as long as you can follow instructions... LOL

    you will run a lead from the battery (make sure you have a fuse block), and make sure you do not run it together with your audio cables. run the power on one side of the vehicle, and the audio cables on the other side.
