So, 11 and a half hours of labor and work later, my 04 SR has two subwoofers installed in the trunk, EXTREMELY clean install in my opinion. The shop that did it really put a lot of effort into this and I was there half the day hanging out and watching them. I have two 10 inch JL Audio W3V3 subs powered by a JL audio 500 watt mono block amp 500/1V2. This system f-ing pounds! Really does sound fantastic, everyone seems to agree too. Here are some pics, enjoy!

I saw the JL's and couldn't resist posting. I love JL's. I've had the JL w7 12", and am currently using a JLw6v2 12" powered by a PPI A600.2. Fantastic sound. Looks superb.

http://********************/smile/emthup.gif Totally clean install man, nice! It's definitely nice to see this in a S60...classy install job for a classy car.

Not to hate on anyone, but giant sub boxes make this car look totally ghetto and add too much unneeded weight to the car.

Fantastic install! I absolutely love the matching carpet as well as near flush mounting. Can you still easily access the fuse panel/tail lamps?

I had two 12W6v2s in my MkIV 337 GTi -- I hearted those speakers.

That looks great! Congrats on the upgrade. Have you run into any problems with the trunk lid buzzing when the bass kicks in? When I installed a 12" sub in the trunk, I would hear an annoying buzz from the trunk (maybe the license plate?) when outside the car. System sounded great when inside the car, but was a little annoying to hear it when I had popped out to grab the mail.

At this point in time there is buzzing from the trunk, quite noticable actually, but I am taking it back for more dynomatting. The entire Sidewell is the custom made box and surprisingly doesnt need more. I would have had it done yesterday but as I said they were working from 9 - 845 as it was, and they usually close at 8. The owner was doing me a favor, so Ill go back and have it done.

The install is completely flush with the side of the trunk, there is a 1/4 inch tear drop shaped raised design element which is the shops trademark that they asked to do and I said yes, which breaks up the flatness and can be seen in the third pic the best.

Best thing about this install, I lost 0 trunk space.

very classy install!

Yes it most certainly is, a very ADULT install http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
When you Dynamat that ENTIRE trunk it will be great.
You have to do under the carpet, (trunk floor) inside the spare tire area, everywhere!

Re: (JRL)

Can you fold down the walls and post a pic of the backside? I've been thinking about relocating my subs and your set up is what I want to do. Please post pics or email them to [email protected] Thanks!

Clean installation, looks good. Not for me though, bad enough I have tinnitus in one ear, more boom boom might make me deaf.

I must say it looks great very clean and classy. Also can you post pics of the backside if possible? On a side note do you have pics of your car from the outside with the CF spoilers on it?
