    good move on going ahead and doing the entire trunk.

    it's worth it, for sure.

    Thanks Red... ...i'll be sure to take pics of the entire process so that maybe you and some of the others can critique my setup and give some obvious pointers that won't be so obvious to myself.

    If you buy from a long-time seller with thousands of sales and mostly positive feedback, you won't have a problem with stale goods. 99% of them don't have warehouses full of stock which would tie up their limited funds. They order as little as possible at a time to keep a minimal inventory, and have high turnover if they specialize in certain items.

    Tires may be different, however, since they can dry rot. But I have bike tires in my garage that I bought in 1997 which are still perfect. You only run into problems when you expose them to extreme temps. Chances are, the tires you buy online are much newer than what you would get locally. Not to mention, it's almost impossible to find a lot of the good brands and models locally.

    I would cover the spare tirewell, and not remove any previously applied deadening material, as long as it is solidly adhered. It will only help.

    Have you guys seen this sound deadener comparison. It's a bit long, but informative.

    hehe, page one or 2 by yours truly.

    So wait, how does the monster/streetwires twisted high end stuff compare to THX wire?? I'm just starting to get into the positive in my account, so that huge bulk purchase of goods is going to hppen right after my engine is fixed up.

    so far from the truth. all of this is so far from the truth.

    I could get good brands even when I was living in podunk college station, they just had to be ordered, but then, most every place has to order them.

    and unless you're running some 80k mile touring tire, I can guarondamntee you that that tire from 1997 is NOT in the shape I would trust to ride on. No flippin way. To believe otherwise would just be naive.

    what do you ride btw?

    I think they are pretty much the same as well....the wires that i got are for home theaters, but they look very similar to the monster car audio speaker wires. (70 ft. for 50 bucks...good deal?). It should be enough speaker wire for 5 or 6 installs....definitely enough for one.

    As for my install...i think this guy who is building my box is d!ck!ng me over. I sent em a paypal payment March 3rd and he keeps comming up with excuses on why it's been taking so long. He's also been out of contact for over a week and hasn't replied to my pm's. I was supposed to have it last weekend, but i would assume that either this guy died mysteriously or is going to...lol.

    I went ahead yesterday and bought a temportary box off of ebay because i can't let something like this hold me back...i found one that fit the exact specifications of my subs space wise, but i'm not sure if they're tuned ports. I'll measure them when i get the box and see if i can modify it. If not, i'll just throw my subs in there and see how it sounds after my install.

    Here's a link to it...let me know what y'all think: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMEWN%3AIT

    My subs need 2 - 2.5 cu. ft. each in a ported box.

    hehe - you'd be surprised how much you actually use

    currently, I've got about 100' of speaker wire in my car, and it's a small car
