Just for the floor of the hatch. But then I realized it would be pointless to do just the floor of the hatch when I want to do a rear seat delete one day. So I will just wait to do all of it at once, once that day comes.

What are you up to?
No comment. lol Nothin much. Well actually now I need to fix this oil leak that started yesterday. I havent had ac in the car since I bought it, so I should fix that too. So basically just maintenance stuff.

wood you guys lol
Uhhh idk. lol Yea well the first system I had (in the probe) was these 2 baja subs from the 80s or 90s. lol They were oldd. I bought a pyle amp and it always worked great. I gave that system to my gf at christmas. Then I got these subs at FF for free and bought the boss amp. I think they blew because the amp is too high powered for those subs. the subs were visoniks and they were cheap looking. But I wont complain cuz they were freeeeee. lol

so that's what i imagine what happened. if you had matching ohms, i have no idea. lol
Yea I did some googling and if I found the right subs, they were 4 ohms and my amp is for sure a 4 ohm.

Sometimes it can depend on the speaker itself too...most can't handle low bass blah blah blah....but I've had shit speakers and I've had nice ones sooo....I dunno lol shitty wires can lead to a blown speaker to...
Systems are confusing. lol But I was thinking maybe the wires I had werent big enough. I cant remember what size they are.
