Slick,

I noticed a *lot * when i pulled rear seats, spare, and jack. Went from understeer to the fun/easy lift off oversteer on stock suspension. That weight was right over the rear wheels. Another body in the center of the car, don't notice it very much. This car is kind of my trainer car, so I'm learning a lot about modding and driving, at a low cost and high reliability comparatively.

I'm happy with what i have now, though I'm really jealous of your systems lol. Just wait till i get around to taking pictures you'll die laughing. For the money, it did what i needed (relieved the stock speakers of some bass responsibility so they sound better mids and highs), and i ran cabling that was way too heavy and have a LOC without cutting the stock harness, so i can upgrade later.

There it is, they also had two L7 10's in a box for 90$ tempting not to buy them, but just wanted a little 10 for a little sound and good about of trunk room.

And you have to go to the pawn shop to get ammo there?

It did have the grill but it was beat up. Did it sound good? I don't need loud just a good thump. And yes for 9mm we do. I stood in line at WalMart for an hour to get the last box of 9mm they had.
