Hey e.pie, thanks a lot for the update and pics. Obviously I'd prefer not to cut up the back wall but your sound review is reassuring of the required results (I was considering the small powered amp you've had before the upgrade and it didn't sound the best).Installed.......
I'm using an aftermarket head unit. My amp is a PPi PCx250.Thanks for doing this.
I was thinking about this while changing the fuel pump.
All that air in between the speakers, why not put a mini sub there and install some rear speakers for what they are worth? The mid cargo net just holds debris.
The mounting depth on your Earthquake is 1 3/4". I cannot seem to find a 6.5" 4 ohm subwoofer with shallower specs.
Did you use the factory radio and if so, which amp?
I was a bit leery about cutting it up too, but I am glad I decided to take the plunge. I've had them in for two weeks now, just finished up a 1200mile road trip and still couldn't be happier with them.Hey e.pie, thanks a lot for the update and pics.

I'm doing my research for a good amp for this setup and will report back
Same speakers I have in the front. A 4ch amp is also on my list of wants for the near future.Cool man, I'm actively shopping for a 4ch amp to power the Polk Audio DB651s in the front and the SWSs that will be in the back.
The chopping tools are at the ready :weapons74: LOL...
That's the drivers side, it's the passenger side with the IMA battery vent that needs the shallow mount. And even with these shallow subs it's a super super tight fit to get the passenger side mounted, it's so tight that if the vent weren't made of a somewhat flexible plastic the sub would have no chance of fitting.Looking at the picture where you've cut the alu, why do you need a shallow sub. It looks like there is plenty of room behind the speaker.
It would be, but it doesn't add much bass.So, putting in one normal sized 6.5in sub in the passenger side would be quite simple then.
I'll see if I can find one, I'd rather not have to dig back in to the battery, there are way too many bolts to get to something so simple.Hey e.pie,
I've looked online. Any chance you've taken a pic of the power hookup to the DC/DC converter? Or can you run it by me please?
I've got an amp coming in about a week's time
