i've made a fake wall screwed to the back or the rear seat to mount the amps too and hide the wiring behind. the parcel shelf is MDF with black sub box carpet, 2 x 6 1/2" in the original holes and 2 x 6x9s in thew centre on the plastic mounts with holes cut in the MDF to clear the magnets. it pumps that much my stacker is useless from the bass the 6x9s put out cos they are mounted so firmly. the parcel shelf is secures at the front by the seat and at the rear by child capsule bolts in the original corner holes, so its practical as well cos i have 2 kids. i'm about to put 2 lots of splits in the fronts doors and get rid of my 4" in the dash. once i don't have to carry a stroller in the boot i will box it and put either 2 kenwood 12" subs or 2 clarion 15"s with the spare tyre under a fake floor if it will fit and a sub on each side of the boot.

hey bangers that sounds pretty good well atm i got the car in sanddown mode so i will be doin the boot install soon i bought a stereo and all that just before i started so its not to bad atm all i got is 4" pioneer in the dash 6 1/2 sony explode's in the parcel (which is completely rooted im gonna make a mdf replacement) and a neat little kenwood stereo retails for $300 mp3/ipod compatible

im hoping to do something similar to the pic below with 2 12" kenwood or alpine subs , and make the boot in a box shape,a wall in front of the spare to keep it hidden (left side ) and with the amp on the right side wall the subs behind the seat and the floor of the boot in polished checkerplate the pic is dodgy i just did it on paint but i am hopeing to do a lot more as soon as the boot is painted it should look really good ... and cause its compatible with ipod im gonna make a custom thing coming out of the ash tray to hold and charge the ipod so i have like 4000 songs on hand :D no cd's hehe lol

anyway tell me wat u think of my idea and people keep the posts coming ..pics would be good also :D

thanks dan

yeah the kenwood is KDC-MP4033. with remote. was $329 now $239 at autobarn. i must advise you though that the cable to run the iPod is $200. there is a good one KDC-MP5033U for $429 that has a cable that you feed through to your glovebox or centre console that you put a USB memory stick into. you even get a 256mb stick free with the stereo. looks better than the 4033 and comes with remote too. plus its stacker and iPod capable too. and has a flip down face.

yeah i cant memba the model off the top of my head ... i paid $260 for the sony xplode speakers and the head unit works out to be about $219 i payed at wow and the dude said the cable is $150 which is ok ...also came with a remote and the cable plugs into the stacker port i think should still be a sweet little setup and yeah fold down face with the cd behind the face looks awsome

dan ps it pumps lol :yeah:

if its the model i'm thinking of then it will look sweet in the VL dash. if you are going to get the cable then do it before you install the HU otherwise you'll have to pull it back out again to plug the cable in.

yeah its already in haha :p we put it in the day we bought it like just under a week ago but its all good we go key's to remove it anyway should be easy enough i reckon ipod over cd's is still a better option wat u reckon of my boot idea it should be reletivly easy to do the .... checkerplate will be costly but will do the trick and yeah well it will all happen after the car is painted and the boot is all sorted ....

can u post pics of yorus sometime ?

thanks dan

1st Step: the boot before i started, just got my new marine carpet down
http://f10.putfile.com/main/7/20507091747.jpg

2nd Step: this is the mdf wood when i cut it out, i used a piece of cardboard to get the shape of the wheelarch, and then traced it onto the mdf. i used a jigsaw to cut it out and the mdf is 16mm if i recall correct.
http://f10.putfile.com/main/7/20507102265.jpg

3rd Step: i then glued some of the marine carpet on to the mdf with carpet glue, it worked fine and is on firm, when i bought the carpet i made sure i had extra for the side wall.
it was then i also desided to make the wiring neat and disapear into the carpet, so i drilled holes though as u can see for the cables
http://f10.putfile.com/main/7/20507124567.jpg

4th Step: when the carpet had dryed i trimed the excess carpet off to the shape of the wood
http://f10.putfile.com/main/7/20507160644.jpg

check if it looks alright and if the carpet is trimed enough when mounted in.

5th Step: mount the amp and make sure it lines up with the holes drilled before for the cables.
http://f10.putfile.com/main/7/20507213931.jpg

6th Step: mount it into place and run the cables for the amp thought the holes,
if you have made it well and exact you wont need to screw it down or anything as it will hold in by the lip in the 1/4 panel and the light bulb holder in the tail light section, but screwing it down might b smart to stop thieves

and now with my sub in its complete:w00t:
