Perhaps this could be moved to the audio section since its not SVT specific?

Anyone have info/input on this?

08-11 were sedans not hatches, the carpet will be different, but may be cut to work. Turn the Amp arround. Install an Audiophile HU or aftermarket HU with sub out or use an LOC from the rear channel of the stock HU and your golden.

You may have to install the fuse to supply power to the amp. If your wired for the amp, the power supply box should be ready for the fuse.

Yes. No worries. I made one for the last Audiophile box I installed from a socket holder rail bent to the propper shape.

Ok.. I picked up a Mach 500 Radio and plugged everything in and it works! I was afraid it wouldn't work since the connections on the Mach radio look massively different.

Next problem is that I don't have all the captured nuts for securing the box. and it also looks like some of the trim panels are different.
