The Mitsubishi Evolution VIII we dubbed Crazy 8 back in our July 2006 issue features plenty of custom work and we’re bringing you all these tech pieces to prove it. This marks the sixth installment and we’ve still got more to come. Here, the Installer Institute guys tackle custom subwoofer enclosures in the trunk. We’ll let them guide you through what they know best. The sub enclosures are the most important part of the install because they will determine the location of everything else being installed into the trunk. For this part of the install we had some pretty big obstacles to overcome, including the Cusco strut bar that stretches across the back of the seat.
We scratched our heads, wondering what we could do with the install to make it cosmetically look good and still perform its function. After going over all the equipment we were going to install into the trunk, the next challenge became to make the trunk look open and not cluttered. We also didn’t want to cover the strut bar because it matched the exterior of the car and looked great.
