After various unsuccessful attempts to hide a woofer under the backseat or in the backseat backrest
I ended up with a "semi stealth" solution under the passenger seat.

how about a few pic's of those kick panels under the back seat. thinking of making some for mine so i can ditch the boxes under the front seats. thinking it would help with sound. as it is iv got 6" rounds in home made boxes that are to small, subsequently the sound very "hollow" and it's somewhat muffled by the seat. im thinking putting them in custom kick panels would solve those problems.

Secondly that it's valuable due to keywords in it. They don't care how many people used the domain in question because they grab them practically for free, hold on to them for years then drop them if there's no interest in buying them for huge sums of money. The majority of the webs domains are currently held by them and they're a blight on the web.

I love picking them up for $10 hours after they were for sale for thousands. It gives me a semi.
only a semi huh? :lol:

To be honest, I knew some rain is coming but until you posted, I didn't know that we were directly in the projected path of the eye. What a way to welcome us back to the coast, huh? :) We won't get any hurricane force winds but we're looking at flood risk in the area. I'll keep you up to date on what we actually see.

no idea. the place makes pressurized cylinders (fire extinguishers, oxygen tanks, nitrous tanks, SCUBA tanks, etc.). as loud as the boom was and as crazy as the shockwave was, i wouldn't be surprised if people weren't dead over there. fire department still had the street blocked off when i left work 2 hours later.

this video was filmed there

Since it's brand specific what are your plans for it?
Hassle with moving the VW content on here to the ACVWA domain may be?
