Insta-trunk, Anybody got one?

I was looking at the instatrunk in acme truck parts. They really do not give you much information. I want to see if I can fit a sub and an amp in there.

Does it go to the top of the wheel well, or higher? Is it sloped to the contour of the back seat, or does it go straight down.

I know some of you folks will say I don't need a sub. The thing is I can't hear the radio at all(zero - zip) when I'm driving with the top off on the highway. Those 4x6 speakers just can't cut it. I'm not looking to go crazy, just a little more volume.

I have the Mopar one and it goes to the top of the wheel wells and just goes straight down to the floor.

I have a set of speakers wedged between my rollbar and the fender .. and a second set of speaker on the rear fenders, and a set in the dash.

Most of the time I get decent amount of sound outta the 6.

i had the same problem with hearing my tunes, solved it for 20 bucks. Roadmaster 300w box with 2 6" woofers and 2 1" tweeters, at Walmart for 20 bucks. Its nice and small, fits behind the back seat with room to spare for shovels, lug wrenches, etc. And the best part is, if its stolen, who cares?! it was only 20 bucks! but dont get me wrong, it puts out alotta noise with little distortion and a reasonable amount of bass.
