We finally installed a system, and best of all as you can see by the pics, you can't see it. We left the 3.5" Alpine dash speakers alone, added 2 4" Memphis speakers in the center of the dash where the original single speaker went, on a bracket that angles them towards the sides, added 5.25 Memphis speakers in the kick panels, two 6x9's behind the seats and a 200W Memphis amp to run the 5.25's and the 6x9's. It sound so good, you can actually hear it over the Swampers and the exhaust, that I doubt we will add a sub. The amp is sitting over the passenger side wheel well behind the side panel.

The Kick panels are Memphis PR series:

The 6x9 are Memphis M Class Kevlar cones:

The amp is a Memphis M Class 50x4 amp. We were going to go with a JL e4300 (something like that...) but do to the fact that JL runs a little hotter, despite the slight increase for preformance we opted of the Memphis /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

Oh, and Z3PR, I didn't see the purpose if running a sub when in a matter of weeks I am going to lose the hardtop for a long time, and run a softop. I just figured the money spent on making a sub work in a open space would better go towards a Klune Underdrive or clocking my transfer case /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

What kinda carpet did you use for the rear trim? It looks sweet, I am thinking of dumping my vinyl for something a little more plush and that carpet looks nice! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I replaced the carpet about two years ago. When I did went to a local auto upholstery shop and ordered new carpet and at the same time I ordered a couple of extra yds of matching carpet.

I like the way it looks, but it is hell to keep clean and when you throw muddy tow straps, tools etc in the back it is a problem and I have been thinking about getting rid of it, building new side panels and having them Rhino lined to match the rest of the interior. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

With the top on, I have the subs firing rearward, with the box right behind the back seat. Popping the top in this configuration pratically makes all of the bass go away. With the top off, the subs need to point at you. You will not get as much low end as with the top off, but it is still useable. Probably better than half.
