    got the pm- sent one back

    The way the speakers are set up right now- I have 6x9's in the front- they are sitting under the seats....and a big tube thingy- behind the back seat. The dash speakers are sh*t, the ones in the back in the side panels are sh*t...which is why we put these in.

    I can't wait for Greg72 to move over here, from what I've read in the audio forum- he's an audio man! YEAH!

    What are the boxes you have? Would they fit under my seats????

    Funny! I was just about to post on your orignal thread.....when I scrolled down and saw your comment! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You bet. Once I'm "in the area" I'd be happy to set you up with something nice box-wise. I'll just need to buy a house with a 220V outlet in the garage so that my tablesaw will still work.....

    Oh, and I should also probably find a job too!!!

    I just cleaned out a spot in the barn and moved my truck into there today. All I have to do is pull the tranny back out and fix a bunch of leaks that I've got. I've also got to take care of some leaky gas tanks, put the interior back together, and find a set of tires and I'm ready to rock.

    That one house kinda stalled....it's an "estate sale" and the kids apparently have a problem making any decisions collectively. No biggie, I still need to get an offer on my house here anyway....then maybe I'll go back at them with an updated offer.
