    I just removed all the trunk tar in preparation for the arrival of my LukeBox. I went the dry ice route and it was actually pretty damn fun. For starter I got to play with dry ice for a couple minutes and then you just hit shit with a hammer! I kinda want to do it again lol. That shit sure it heavy, though. Anyone know about how much a whole trunks worth is? If I had to guess I'd say 20-30 pounds, but I'm quite terrible at guessing weights.
    Pretty sure it's right around 50-55lbs.

        Just picked up a set of those crimpers from Home Depot. They are awesome.

          This is about the sound system installation, not how heavy the trunk tar is. :loco:

              yeah and the weight of it has nothing to do with installation.

                  Luke, you say 2 pair of RCA's are needed in the first post, but 3 later on when you are talking about routing them to the front...might want to clarify/explain what the difference will be.

                  Might be worth adding a piece about RCA outputs on the deck (2 vs 3) and how that affects things. I realize that this is intended for that specific deck, but people may already have a head unit or pick up something else.

                      Helped Cliche with the install today, first time I've seen the box. Well done Luke, that's a nice product at a great price!

                        Tismael711: Luke specifies 2 pairs of RCA cables. So, 4 in total.

                          More Lyle installed it and I helped lol. Thanks again for all the help, I would have been in way over my head. It sounds so damn good and it's so damn loud! My friend cranked some dubstep through it and it's so deep and so clean. We had it playing much louder than is enjoyable and it was still insanely clear with absolutely zero distortion.

                          Awesome product, Luke. I'm thoroughly impressed.

                            Sub'd.

                            After sitting in a couple lukebox'd cars last night, I've come to the conclusion that this is life changing bass right here ;)

                              So when do we get on yours? So far I have products for every type of E30 except 2: the power top vert and the M3. Hell, we even do a box for the E30 Touring!

                              Thanks for the kind words too, bud. That 'vert kicks ass, doesn't it? I wish more people here could hear it.

                              Closing SOON!

                                Would there be a difference in an M3 box?
