Oh no. I’m just adding the 4 plastic spacers to make a small 3/4 gap allowing bass to pass. Nothing destructive

basically porting the trunk.

Don’t know what I did wrong but 60 was way too long and nothing was working

I made the holes large enough for the spacer, I used a 1 inch spacer, with a m8 1.25 40 ss bolts. Works perfect.
The carpet is snug around the spacer no movement will happen and now the carpet can lay flat against its original surface View attachment 420457 View attachment 420458

You can see the inch all way across.

I put a little superglue on all the screws and tightened the shelf speakers up, they was completely loose from vibrations and driving, tossed a drop super glue on each one. Shouldn’t get loose again

I had a rattle I couldn’t place it, it was a speaker that got lose.

so put the seat latches on top of the carpet with the spacers behind it? Any reason why didn’t put both spacer and latch behind the carpet?

Just trying to make sure doing it right when I get the bolts tomorrow

looks awful but tossed some dynamat extreme up there

Did replacing the parcel shelf speakers make much of a difference?
How hard is it to get the back off?

I like the seat latch spacer, but I'll probably get a sheet of black UHMW so it has full support under the bracket. Is 3/4" the magic number?

Add bass ports to the rear shelf. We have done it on several cars but not this one yet. It's on the to-do list. You get the bounce off of the rear window. Opening up a space for the entire seat allows for more, suspension, road, and tire noise.

Place sound deadener.

Add Polyfill to your subwoofer.

Place the center speaker on a toggle.

And there you have it, 2 cents worth.
