    All i can say is wow..this thing really hits. The stealthbox isn't sluggish at all and hits every beat. Without looking behind the seat, you would never guess that there are only 2 10's back there. It sounds incredible. The install went smooth and i am very pleased with how clean everything looks. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good setup. I used to have an f150 with two 10w3v3's and this new setup surpass it greatly. I used 2 layers of dynamat xtreme and bolted down the stealthbox and it really made a difference. There are no rattles..just a good clean hit. The alpine amp is really strong at 600rms. I know that its overpowering the 10w1's somewhat but i got a really good deal on the amp and i figured that i would rather have more power and i could just turn down the gain. Here are the finished pics

    yeah thats why i bought that amp. I knew that it was small enough to fit in the compartment but it still had alot of power. I got a $200 dollar discount too

    Also, I love your amp mounting place. I currently have a little wonder under my passenger seat, but I had to remove the floor vent under the seat for it to fit.

    I got the amp at best buy..it was normally 500 but they had it marked down to 300 because they were try to get rid of all of the pdx series amps because i dont think that they were going to carry them anymore where i live. It was a really good deal and it fits perfect under the seat. It has plenty of breathing room and it hasn't heated up one bit

    Great deal. I'm going to go measure to see if my amp will fit in there. :)

    Yeah i was going to buy a pdx5 but i already had a new alpine 4 channel that came out of my old truck and i didn't want to just let it la y around. 300rms from the pdx5 is plenty to run the stealthbox. I have my 4 channel under my driver seat out of sight. Everything came together very well
