Yeah... There really isn't a whole lot of space under the rear seat.
Although, the Nissan GT-R has a center console instead of a middle seat in the back and there are a couple speakers mounted in there. I bet you could do something to that affect if you wanted too.
maybe a single 10 or 12 under the middle section since, if im not mistaken, theres no middle seat for our Koups

well if the mods don't mind, their site is BP Customs Autosport and their email is [email protected] they guy I usually go through is Mike, he's been my hookup there for a while, but there's like 5 or 6 other people they got there that are pretty cool, but he gets me good pricing. They use paypal so I know its secure and when I order, I have the stuff in like 1 or 2 days for just about anything. Let Mike know fast harry sent you, lol he calls me that, why...idk lol.
Thanks man! Im sure the mods wont mind seeing that we dont have a vendor of A/V equipment. Just my two cents though.

Ill be checking these guys out!

No problem.
There is pretty much the only place I actually trust with a/v stuff online and trust their prices, they have RF subs for like half of what you see them in stores from and are legit too. If I ever had a problem with them, I would say it, but honestly I have ordered everything in my car from them and never once had a hiccup and have recommended easily hundreds of people to them too from different forums and what not but have never had anyone with a problem with them.
When I started with them I was hesitent but they put everything up there that you need to know. Basically order what you want and you're set, just make sure it is what you want cause if its already shipped which like I said I get my stuff in like a day then they cant cancel the order.
If one of the mods want, try to talk to them to see if they will give a discount for members of forteforums if their mentioned on the site or something. I can try to get a hold of one of the guys too if anyone wants.

Example of their prices cause I am looking at getting a Jensen UV10 7" indash, they want $275 for it shipped brand new. For a RF Punch P2002 amp, they want $160. bestbuy wants $200 + tax and gas cause its like a 30mi one way trip for me to bestbuy. so i mean they are real good prices and whatnot. again if the mods want ill look into getting a discount for the forum. What do you guys think??
Hey im down, see what you can hook us up with, maybe get them to be a vendor for us! We need an A/V vendor

got off the phone with them a couple of minutes ago and they are interested in being a vendor for us here and offering a discount for anyone on the forum too. forteforums get a hold of them so we can get discounts!!!! I talked to the owner over there, Chris, hes a real nice guy and has sponsorships too!! with the sponsorship they offer a real ddeeeeeeeepppp discount, so now I am officially sponsored by them, just waiting on the stickers to get in and the new season to start back up to help them how they helped me! these guys are awesome!
Sick! now yall gotta hook me up hardcore, im the one that started this thread :p

livereckless010 why don't you hit them up via email and see if they will sponsor you.
I believe all it is to be sponsored is to buy a certain amount from them and attend like 4 shows a year and a sticker with their site and logo on it you're good to go, oh and pix that you have their logo on your car and some sorta proof of shows, like when you register. so its not much at all, especially for the amount off . oh and lastly obviously the car cant be a hunker, it has to look decent in which yours does already so you should see what you can get.
That would work out nicely but my only issue is i dont really have very many car SHOWS around here, plenty of meet ups but no major shows.

well, i think it depends on what music he listens to, how much room he is willing to sacrifice, how much bass/sq he wants and how much he is willing to spend. if you listen to rock you would want a sealed box, its more punchy and clear, if you listen to rap, go with ported its more bass but not as clean. if you want to conserve space, obviously go with a smaller sub, id go with a 10" sub and this way they wont need much space either way you go.
Im a rocker and a techno guy lol

Has anyone added subs in their koup? I know of a couple people but I cant remember names at this point. Would people be willing to share pictures of their setup? I think I found a way around my space issue, just pull the back seats down when i need the room! haha

I think ive decided on what to do, Im going to go ahead and cut into trunk space and go with 2 10s or 12s :D and any time i need my trunk (which isnt too often. oh, and im a guitarist with a half stack lol) I can just switch off the amps for the subs (im gonna get a switch wired in the line and installed in one of my "dead buttons") and take them out.

Now i just gotta find good door and corner speakers :) any suggestions?
