I haven't seen too many (if any) good installs for subs/amps in the TSX, so I figured I'd post pictures of my install that I finished over the weekend.

I'd like to know what everyone thinks...

Nice I like it alot... personally I was thinking the the other way around... Amps in the corners, subs behind the seat....but that looks really good... I like it alot...


Not to overshadow urs....but take a look at this one, forget whos car it is...but i cant help :drool1: over it


Then again, yours manages to retain trunk fuction, which I very much appreciate..

...not only do i retain trunk functionality, but spare tire as well (both of which were objectives when planning the system).

Really nice work. Good idea about keeping the trunk/folding seats fuctionally. I just bought a TSX, and i;m sure i'll be doing some changes to the strereo system. I really dont want to get another head unit. What i would like to do is keep the head unit, new speakers all around, get 1 amp for the speaker, 1 for a sub, and a 6 disc mp3 changer, or hook up an ipod like player to it. does anyone have any suggestions? Also is there already a seperate amp in the TSX? Thanks.

I feel you on that. I got crap in the truck from the g/f that I found the trunk very useful. But if I were to get a system, I would go with your set-up. Well done! Are you using an after market HU or the Stock? And how's the trunk holding up when you cranking up the volume?

Yes, this is using the stock HU. The trunk is actually holding up very well - I dynamatted the whole car. That process was a bit involved, but well worth the time and money. Virtually no rattles, the ride quieted down quite a bit, and the music is much more accurate/clear.

excellent. it woulda been cool if you woulda dropped the amps down more, like into the amp rack, that way you could cover them with a plexiglass cover or something. it would look really awesome and protect your amps from getting scratched as much too. but your setup looks siiick! im a huuge fan of custom work

The box is made of 3/4" MDF and fiberglass. It just took a lot of careful measuring and cutting of the factory trunk liner panels. Each box has 0.75 cubic ft of air space (sealed, not ported).
