    First, let me say I am not a big sony fan for car audio...

    A better component option:

    http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-TS-D1720C-6-75-Inch-280-Watt-Speaker/dp/B0015NRQ5S

    A better amp, similar price (refurb)

    http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-GM-D9...1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1300905988&sr=1-1


    It is smaller, and puts out more power.

    Great sub choice!

    Personally, I would make those changes, but otherwise, looks fine, nice little setup.

    use silicone for the sealant, or collect your sawdust from the MDF, and mix it with wood glue to create a paste, then use that. Works great.

    was it the amps that failed?

    To be honest i was a bit skeptical of the amps.

    But being a dad on a budget, the budget is boss...lol :)
