To this.

I think it looks pretty good. And it glows blue out the sub grate.

Is that amp mounted on carpet?
You removed the OEM sub and amp? Did you add another sub? What about putting the amp on the other side? I think its empty behind that panel.
I've seen a few different amps, one like yours, an aluminum one with the built in heat sinks and another steel one similar to yours. I dont know if theres differing quality or any differences other than the look.

Yeah It's on carpet. It helps with vibration noise. Plus I'm a little ocd, so i finished it out with carpet. As far as the other side i didn't know if it would interfere with the filler neck , so i just used the passenger side. As it had all the holes predrilled already. And yeah I have a single non ported JL box in the cargo area. I have a quick connect on the cargo side panel, so I can remove the sub and not have any open connections. Just used a sub enclosure connection and mounted it in the side trim, just in front of the sub grate. Ill get pics up later.

Here's My connection so I can take it out easier, and still have use of my cargo area.

What did you tap into for the remote on on the amp?

the amp remote wire. Since this came with a factory sub. Here's a link to the thread here http://escape-city.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=11512 hope it helps.

Very good idea putting a speaker terminal into the panel! I wish I had thought of that before I did my install. Makes removing the sub a breeze.
