Ok guys sorry it has taken awhile for me to post more photos. I have been really busy. We have started on the floor and started building the rack for the Morel crossovers. As soon as I get a chance I will post the build picks for that process.

Here are some pictures of the trunk floor being built.





So these were pretty much the steps taken to build my floor. The spare tire has been retained and the floor was raised about 2.5 inches. Another thing to note is that the seats will still fold down so I have not lost any utility space if I need it. As you can see in the last picture we are test fitting the cover panel. The cover panel will sit flush with the subwoofer enclosure and the crossover enclosure. The plexiglass covers for the amplifiers have not been built yet to cover the amps, also there will be lighting in the amp case as well. The crossover enclosure is going to be molded to the passenger side of the car just like the subwoofer enclosure. The system should be completed soon!!

In case anyone is wondering the amplifier configuration being used are two Mosconi AS100.4 four channel amps. One amplifier is wired to my front speakers (bi-amped configuration). 100watts is powering the tweeter and mid-range in the pillars and 100watts is powering the mid-bass speakers in the doors (per side). That is a total of 400watts to my front stage. The second amp is the same as the first, I have 100watts powering each rear fill speakers and the back channels of the amp are powering my 12" subwoofer. 500watts is going to the subwoofer.

Wow! I absolutely love this build, very great attention to detail. I love the fact that you have not lost functionality or space and I bet it sounds awesome! The light ring around the sub is badass

Thanks man!! The light ring around the sub came out pretty cool, we hope to light up the amp rack and crossover rack in a similar fashion. As far as the sound quality, it is hands down the best stereo I've ever had. The staging is crazy good. All of the sound is imaged perfectly. The music sounds as if there is a concert playing on the front bumper of the car. Hopefully when its done there will be some shows that I could take it to. I was thinking about possibly going to Focus Rising to show it. Thanks again compliment.
