Here's the inside with the lid off. The open end where the amp is at, is cover by the back of the seat.

The box has some very special qualities:
You can't get it out
The seat is padlocked so there's no gettin' to the amps
The lid allows me a larger floor space
None of the equipment or sound is affected by a full load of cr@p
And yes, the lid dampens the volume levels, but the vibes are all there, you can feel it in your chest and still be able to carry on a conversation.
Since the ported chambers meet at the back, but the port tubes aren't at the end of the runway, I have multiple frequencies that it opens up to.

Another bump to the system is the 4v preout signal to the amps. The average deck has a preout signal of 1.8v.
0awg power cable, Stinger expert series RCA's ($150).

The weight of the box serves as my sand bags for the winter. Where I live, in the mountains, winter encompasses 9 months of the year.
3" lift in the front, full coils
3.5" lift rear, full leaf packs
1" JKS dogleg shackles, for the sag

Ya, I had the box design from my previous XJ. I wanted to build it again as soon as I got this XJ. All I had laying around were the Memphis, btw they're cr@p.
Amps, here's what's there now. There's a piece of rocker panel behind the cap, that's why there appears to be 4 amps.

The skulls are attached to a plate that stops that vents from flapping, and the i-pod fits nicely too.

I'm a freak about symmetry, and it has always driven me crazy that you can only see 1 shock from the rear. So I painted them flat black w/ black boots.

I noticed that even the iPhone app has issues with showing pictures sometimes so maybe it's something with the website.

Oh yea .... I do that some times it is .... I post them with the app and I do everything else in the browser. And after you post you can edit your post from the browser and get rid of the stupid attachment thing

Haha I can relate to this, my wife always gives me s*** about my symmetry woes. I even center up the salt shakers and whatnot when we eat out haha.
