Within a few months i got a new HU, the JVC KD-s100. I'm happy with it, it has all the features i needed at the time, but i plan to upgrade that in the future with more crossover settings, if possible. With this i was able to hook my sub amp up and put the 15 in, luckily enough it fit in the back. It was built for a trunk, so it's not the best box for a trunk... oh well.
Solid 4 channel amp: The summer before i even bought the CRX i came across several deals to do with this. First was a guy on here that sold me a 75.4 kicker amp, brand new. Then Jacob started a trade in program, so i turned in the kicker and gave some cash up for the 100.4 that's in my car now. Sundown FTW!
Mids: My first plan was to get some MLi-65s from Mach 5 audio. But they were out of stock for do damn long (are they even stocked yet?) i started shopping for new mids. I wanted to do as little fab. work as possible, so i was stuck on 6.5s. After weeks of scrounging the internet for info on these i hit up a dealer on SSA and asked a few questions about them. The only thing holding me back was the price; there were nothing but positive reviews on these drivers, i figured they have to be worth the price.
Tweets: after seeing what everyone else was running their carbons at (~2500hz) i figured i needed a tweet that could play pretty low, while being able to perform on 4 ohms, to keep things simple. I kept coming back to the Seas Prestige 27TFFNC/G (H1396) 1" Textile Dome Tweeter. https://www.madisoun...roducts_id=1466 These can go all the way down to 2500khz! perfect!
Misc: You can't upgrade your front stage without a little deadening, so i sent Don at http://www.sounddead...i-bin/index.cgi to see what needs to be done. I couldn't really do the "whole meal deal" because of funds, so i did what was really bare minimum. I ordered 14 CLD tiles and a roll of extruded butyl rope. Doors will stripped and stuck.
On with some pics!
Car and a stock door.

ohjay - We're definitely not calorie counters, 'cause we can't count that high.
onebadmonte: Did you feel it?
denim: Yes, both monitors were shaking bad. I work at a mid-size engineering firm. Funny story, the structural department all stood up and none of us said a word and we all hustled out of the building, the entire electrical, process, mechanical and piping departments were staring at us.

I'll def. check that out. just seems like it's going to be too high. but what do i know, they're the pros!
you can get 4-12s to fire forward in there, just depends on what your willing to do. You know the humps (wheel wells) in the back area, the box has to be above that, its kind of hard to explain, but if you search around more even check out the usaci forum you will get a ton of ideas. Nice rex though!
