    Well with 10" speakers (2 of them) and my 2000W amplifier I am quiet capable of making the thump being felt all the way to the front seats, both in the Firebird and also was able to do it in the old car which was a Camaro, nothing beats the true sound of Bass

    I have a 10" in a '02 camaro (in the side part of the back well) and when I turn the bass up and put in my subwoofer mix mp3 disc it shakes pretty good.

    I've suprised a lot of people when I tell them it's only 1 10", although part of it is because it's a small car and there isn't a barrier between the front and the back (ie: trunk or rear seats).

    Anyway, the one sub shakes pretty good on its own. Enough to relax me when coming home from work

    Someday I plan to replace it with 2 10" soloberics.

    Yeah thats the beuty of 4th Gen Firebirds and is it 5th gen Camaros? They don't have any obstructions at all there, running 2 MDS 10" Audiophile basses, rebuild the entire area round the back, still keeping the stock mounting for the targa roof, so everything will still look stock when taken out, planning on putting an extra battery in the opposite side of sparewheel, proberly there where you have your bass.

    These work nice if you don't have a beefy system. Most of the time you don't hear bass as much as you feel it (ie 35-40Hz). Of course this is different if you have a huge ported box "tuned" to 150Hz

    I would rather use the money and buy some better speakers. A few high quality components will a lot better than twice as many low quality components.

    Didn't even know you could still get bass shakers, they were a fad in the early 90's never seen a set that gave the same punch as 1 12" sub in the correct enclosure.
