Did a few things over the last couple days -

Put in the Skunk2 Short Shifter Adapter that I picked up off a member. After driving with it in shifts feel a little stiffer and more precise and the throw is perfect for me


And I also got to put in my Alpine "Power Pack" Amp. Not alot of room behind our head units which I was suprised about but I got it to fit right behind it and the new speakers sound great with the extra power

The mess during install:


The finished wiring before I put it back in and cleaned up.. Used heat shrink butt connectors for the wiring since I didn't have solder available and then used electrical tape to keep everything organized

Alright so someone over on another forum was selling the exact amp and subwoofer combo I have in my amazon wishlist since i've been doing some audio upgrades so I decided to go for it since my girlfriend said she'd pay for half as an xmas present

Amp is a 500W RMS Alpine and the sub is an Alpine 12" 500W RMS

In my Legacy I had basically the same setup with same amp and same model sub but in the 10" size - It pushed pretty hard in the ported box I had but might go for a more punchy sealed enclosure this time around with the 12"

Have everything gathered for the sub install and just installed the sub into the box tonight (will post a picture of the box later). I was going to install today after work but we're supposed to be getting big rain storm all day and garage is full of stuff so can't pull car into it so that probably won't happen but might do it friday. Will hopefully post pictures of that soon!

Finally snapped some pics of subwoofer installed with the wiring cleaned up a bit

Ended up mounting the amp to the sub box because it's the simplest way I could come up with
