My neighbor got a new Pontiac Firebird and had a Complete Pioneer system installed in his car ...

Wanting to say he had a pair of 10s in that back deck like shown earlier in this thread.

It wasn't necessarily the bass that drew my attention, but those T Tops out cruzin to "Money for nothing" is still stuck in my mind today !!!

This was back in 85 when I first got my license. Been hooked ever since.

1990. Rockford Fosgate of course. 18" Punch Pro Series in a 4th order bandpass, PVC ports, walled Suzuki Samuri. Pushed by a Power 650. Later he added 4 Punch Pro 12"s and a Power 1000. I believe he was hitting 138 db or something like that with just the 1 18" back in the day.

Orion XTR 15's walled. My buddy had a pair in his Honda CRX. It was loud.

Someone in the next neighborhood had a white 80's Trans Am with the 6.6. He had 2 18's. He was the loudest that I ever heard rolling down the road. Concert loud! He had a HUGE "Auto Audio" banner on it. Auto Audio built the system out of Clearwater,FL.

Thanks for the memories Steve!

Oh, Steve, back in the day, Tampa Bay Auto Sound was building enclosures with hinged doors. I know of 2.

1. My neighbor's friend had a black Escort GT (remember them?) with 4 RF Pro Series 12's. 2 firing forward and 2 upwards, sealed. The 2 were mounted on the board that had a handle so you could lift it up and open it. Why? I assume it was double baffled. Anyway, I remember him stuffing *fiberglass insulation* into the box. lol.

It's the first time I hear the term "it makes the woofers think they're in a bigger box".

2. An old school mate had a 1990 RS Camaro with 2 RF Pro Series 15's. Again, TampaBay Auto Sound used they a hinge. They used the trunk as an enclosure, you could see the brass hinge spine running along from side to side. Flush install, sealed. Looked really nice. The subs were mounted to a double baffle, it was a bitch for him lift the handle too. Lift up the lid and a Power 650 laid on the floor of the trunk.

Anyway, RF & Tampa Bay Auto Sound was the shit back then!
