i like them a lot. great power, small and very efficient. these are probably one of those only amps i can use for the install. i have no problems with sound quality. these amps are very underrated. the 4.150 is rated at 150 x 4, but birthsheet came with 171 x 4. the 4.100 is rated at 100 x 4, and was benched at 128 x 4.

looks awesome!!! the only negative i see is that you lined the door panel with sound material rather then the outer shell of the door (skin)
actually the door skin is also deadened :D. the inner door skin is deadened probably with one layer, as it is definitely hard to reach. the outer door skin has about 3-4 layers of raammat. One top of that the foam you see is ensolite, which helps eliminate road noise.

trunk i have about 4 layers of the second skin spectrum (liquid based deadener) and one layer of ensolite. not sure what 4 layers of liquid deadener equates to in mat based deadening though. i have about one layer on the rear deck from inside the cabin. one layer under the rear deck (from the trunk side). the roof i was thinking of doing, but i got lazy, lol.

Nice to see a high end audio system tastefully done, that's a lot of sound deadening material to use, but I imagine the sound quality is pretty sweet in the car. Nice trunk setup, was there a reason you reverse mounted the sub, or was that just for style?

Inverting subs in general are for aestetic reasons.

Im not sure why it was reverse mounted also.. If the back of the driver looked awesome i could understand why someone would do that, or if you have like 3 of them or something and you had the one in the middle backwards i get that, but on a single driver like that that dosent even really look that nice backwards it bogges me besides you somehow missed the fact that the woofer is deeper than the enclosure... Or you wanted extra volume inside the cabinet?

well main reason for invert mount was due to time constraints. we had a meet to get to and it was late and we wanted some sleep. in order to mount the sub normally, probably would have taken another half hour to an hour. i got 3 hours of sleep that night!

i mounted the sub back to normal in the end.
