you kind of remind me of my co-worker named tom. he's a really good guy, just talks a lot. LOL nothing wrong with that though. yeah those 8's are a wonder. i like how you represent the RE logo on the trunk. you should paint or carpet the box though.

I concur... but I don't think 8 is enough, you need 10 8s

I don't think so. 8 8's should provide plenty of bump.

ok, let me explain a few things
1>yeah only 2, I don't want to take up the whole trunk
2>the box IS ported, port is on the side away from the camera.
3>People keep saying the right one looks out of phase, I may have to take them out and check. I didnt do the wiring.

found the problem. took the subs/box out of the car pulled the right sub. the wires from the amp were correct, but the wire from the - on one VC to the - on the other VC was loose..gonna rewire it and try again....more bass?

btw, since it was like that, what was it doing? was the sub actually moving or was it being moved by the other sub?

it was acting like a passive radiator, so it appeared slightly off.
