Well I went down to the stereo store to see what was up while i was getting my cell phone fixed. I know a few guys that work there so i was checking on a dash kit for the si. They should be out in March from the METRA corp and are $65 for the dash kit and not sure on the price for the harness and $20 for radio am/fm adaptor plug. Then we got talking about bass and how i missing it and they talked me into a Alpine Type X 12" for a hell of a deal. VERY VERY impressed with the sound from only using a LOC and a POS sony amp i had lying around the house. I'll get some pics tomorrow and will be building a new ported box and a new amp in about couple of weeks.
:wavey: <I love that little guy he looks so cool.

Now you need to fill that trunk with dynamat to keep the sound in and from shaking the trunk off it's hinges. I bet that thing rocks.

Line out converter so you can have RCA jacks to run an amp off of the factory speaker wiring.

To use a loc, do you have to cut any wires? I'd like to get a sub without paying a ton of cash. I know someone who could install if for me if I get lost but I don't want to cut any wires if I dont need to.
