    Not to long ago I put 2 MTX 10's in my truck, they sound great but I have a problem with my rear view mirror facing down after the bass hits. Anyone else have this problem and come up with a solution for it?

    I would do as some of the above suggested, try making the 'ball' of the knuckle a little bigger with some thin glue.... otherwise, thats the price you pay when you get heavy bass, shit will fall apart... LoL

    I would love to see pics of this. I've been messing with my system this week. Added an amp for the main speakers, and have been tweaking and tuning the sub amp. I've actually found the best "bang for the buck" tuning I did was remove a bunch of stuffing from my sub box. Smoothed out the sound, made it less peaky.

    Two tens rattling the truck is awesome, I'd love to see your setup.

    IMO, that's pretty cool. They look like MTX Thunder 9000 subs, can't tell what the amp is. Best suggestion is, as said, make the pivot ball bigger by putting some superglue or epoxy on it, should prevent the slipping. I would say though, enjoy, you've got a pretty sweet setup.:D
