Default System Pics?

Where is all the pictures of everyones systems in their Forenzas? I'm going to put 2 12" Memphis Audio M3 subwoofers in mine. I was wondering what other people have done to theirs.

Just my opinion, but I think fiberglass the way to go. I just put a sub in my Reno and made a fiberglass enclosure; it sounds great and I still have a usable space in the hatch. I've seen similar installs in cars with regular trunks; it ends up looking really clean, and you don't need to take up your whole trunk with a big square box. In the Forenza's trunk, you could easily fit a 12 on each side of the trunk, leaving mostly open space. You can see detailed pics of my install at my CarDomain page [federic0's 2006 Suzuki Reno on CarDomain - Page 2].

Yeah that is an excellent idea but i dont know how to do it personally and i would think professionally it would be quite expensive so that just leaves me the option of boxes UNLESS fiberglassing is somewhat affordable? By the way what you did with the trunk is a job well done

Before I tried, I researched fiberglassing online for about 2 weeks. There are plenty of guides available online, and if you mix and match with different people's advice, it isn't all that hard. You also need fewer tools to do a good job with fiberglass than with an MDF box (you need a Dremel, it would help to have a power sander). I'd estimate you could do yours for between $150 and $250. You can get mostly everything you need from the paint section of Home Depot; and you can get custom-made MDF rings on eBay for about 20% of what a car audio place will charge. Best of luck with your system. Post pics once you get it installed. If you decide to go with glass, let me know if you have any questions.

OK thanks for your help. The pricing on the materials isn't too bad..that's about what I would pay for a decent box. Some day in the future I will have to start experimenting and figure it out.

I bought a Kinetic battery to help with light dimming and it doesnt seem to help too much..When i turn the volume above 20 the CD player starts to skip through the songs..like amp is draining the power out of my CD player..any suggestions? Maybe i need a bigger battery? My deck is a Clarion DXZ575USB..

yeah for now turn down the gain input and the bass boost on the amp. i would look for a hi output altenator for are car and upgrade the wires from the amp to the battery to like 4gauge wires. Even tho my amp is 1000watts rms i have the gain input at 1/3 and the bass boost on low its loud enough for me
