Did you add any sound insulation like dynamat? Or are you planning to?

Also, did you notice any rattles coming from the trunk? Typically the license plate is known to need some reinforcement with audio applications like this.

the rear deck is isolated with dynamat and so is the trunk lid, no rattles whatsoever. stuck some foam in back the license plate to prevent it from rattling.

Was the installation hard? Things like this are beyond me but interesting to hear about others doing it.
actually I had it done by a local shop, took them about 3 hours totall which is pretty good in my book. was worth it cause it looks good and the sub box can be taken out with ease if i need the trunk, i have accesss to me spare tire also as it come flush with the pre-cut bend in the spare tire cover.

I've done this before and it's not that hard, just time consuming especially when it comes to running wires from the front to back of the car, that's if you try to make it run as neat and sleek as possible.

How much did you end up paying for the install?

No, the install is not difficult. The most time consuming part is running the power cable from the battery to the trunk. Used to have a neighbor who was a product manager at Rockford Fosgate.....I used to participate in R&D testing for the company. My work commute was 80 miles every day which was perfect for testing car audio. Once the power cable was run front to back, I got to the point where I could switch subs, speakers and amps in about 30 minutes. My SI simply rocked! Making the install, a clean install is the key. Was pretty cool neighbor. We had a lot of fun and I got to know most of the speaker and amp designers as they liked to hang out at my neighbors house on the weekend. Needless to say my neighbor had an off the hook system in his car.

Anyone here thinking about adding a small 8 inch shallow mount sub in the rear deck? Some really good audio systems are setup like that form the factory and it does help to get more quality sound in the cabin, since at that point it's IN the cabin, the cabin acts as its enclosure.

was my oriinal plan but ws missing the "thump" of a wooden box so decided to add what i had laying around. its doable but it wont sound uch better then stock, unless yuo add an extra amp to it. when it ws to the adding an amp i decided to go with a small box cause cost wise vs performance it wasnt worth it.
