I don't know if I ever posted this here. But, here is the audio system I installed in my old 9c1. Did this in a day in my back yard.

The car



The goods



In the trunk all day



Before hacking it up











The huge whip antenna that was on the trunk lid used to wiggle like crazy.

9c1 with leather seats and carpet





Figured I'd share.. I sold the car shortly after doing these mods to buy my Fleetwood.

Looks like pimp my ride....... All kinds of stuff in the trunk, no spare tire
LMAO! Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz

I used to have 2 12" Rockford fosgates mono bridged in ported boxes.
2 power acoustik 1000w RMS amps

I never buy enclosures though, they are never set up right.
It's better to build a box for the subs according to the specs given from the manufacturer.
Otherwise you get bumping bass, but you'll never get the full potential of sound quality.
Unless you run f-type or "free air" subs in which case you don't need a box at all.
I got a few tickets for "impeding an emergency vehicle" because I couldn't hear them behind me. Lol

Tell me how you did the custom rear deck lid.
What did you use for material/supplies?
Steps taken?
I need to make a clean flat one like that for my new brake light but with stock speaker grills.

Looks like a damn good setup right there!!!
I was diggin that car from the day you got it.

Looks like a piece of medium density fiberboard? You'd have to "knock down" a few areas of metal in the rear deck.
If you wanted the original grilles you'll have to raise them up and cut slots into the MDF to place the tabs and them cut holes fro the speakers to play through.

For the big Electrovoice speaker baskets I had to sawzall out the rear shelf completely.

Here's a video of the system. My camera could not pick it up clearly.. The Sub was not hooked up in the video either.

Here's another setup I did. This one with 15" Electrovoice speakers.
