Still expensive, but thinkable. It's not a very clean look that way. Very
'70's mullet IMHO. :) I want to keep the arm rests usable anyway.

What, facing backwards?? I'm sure that sounds wierd from the front seats.
Not to mention sound quality and staging. eesh.

Well even with a dual cone it sounds mono since the speakers are seperated
by what, an inch? I'm going to be running in the neighborhood of 1000 watts
in this system.

Well the car is only for my driving pleasure and a few shows. The plug will
more than likely be covered anyways since I will build a screen to cover the
space from the seat top to the rear window, making it look like it has a
regular deck but would be sonically invisible. This obviously could be
removed to show it off, but would usually remain in place for security
reasons. I'm still working on ideas as to whether the rear components will
be in their own pods and the sub alone. I've been racking my brains for
months, but I'm coming up with the good ideas, the problem is there's always
a drawback to each different idea. I'm trying to amalgamate (fifty cent word
of the day) all the ideas into one that would work the best.

I will. They'll be on my website as soon as I get to work on it.
