    Vs ute
    very nice looking ute, love the rims and i am wanting to lower my back springs to sl's like that. With the sub the way it is do you get many vibrations? The way i got mine setup is like its fully sealed and i put like rubber tape all over the box so i can pump it at full volume and i got no vibrations at all other then various items in the car but not loud bad ones haha
