Re: 4kq sub install?

	my installer recomended building a custom enclosure
	in the trunk, designed for porting, and sending the 
	ports thru the kickpanel.  this is an urq; even less
	space to work with!  i have found though that there
	is definately little you can hope for in putting a
	sub in the trunk.  even the 350w i am sending mine 
	is barely noticable above the sexy thrum of the 
	modified exhaust i run.

	also it will help to amp up the mids and perhaps get
	mids you can xover lower to help win back some bass
	response.  huw?
