    I finished installing my TacoTunes stuff.

    Couple questions for others that have this same setup.

    1) What the heck are the 4 nylon spacers and plastic rectangle that come with the wiring kit?

    2) How are you guys anchoring your setup?

    3) What all did you have to cut off from the back cabin wall? I only cut the 3 large hoops and the enclosures went in ok but not perfect.



    Final install looks pretty good (too bad my seats wont go down to show it off).

    Thanks

    Looks nice. Why can't you put your seats down?

    I think it may be because of 2 reasons or 1 or both.

    The Alpine S woofers have a rubber trim around the woofer (to hide the mounting holes) that sticks out about 3/4 of an inch. That may be the cause.

    Or.

    I need to cut off ALL the mounting points from the factory storage compartments.

    Looking for suggestions on if I need to cut those off? Or how people are mounting these bad boys.

    Can you post the outside dimensions of one enclosure? I want to build something similar but I am looking to do a shallower fit.

    I think they may be on the tacotunes site. Everything is installed in my truck and I have to take out the seat to get to it. Sorry.
