DO you have any pictures of where you put the amp? You said in the hatch floor, so did you take your spare tire out or cut a section out of the styrofoam subfloor?
Oh jeez -- that guy cut up the old speaker to stick the new one inside the plastic housing. The stock connector plug isn't worth the effort -- just solder or crimp connect the stock wires to the new speaker wires and use mounting adapters!

I didn't take any pics of the amp in the back just because it was so generically installed. I cut the styrofoam in the front / driver corner and used velcro tape strips to hold the styrofoam in place. I cut it pretty snug to the amp. I did NOT want to loose the spare tire, so that wasn't an option.

I'll take a pic when I get a chance.
