I mailed those guys with no response. I decided to go full kicker and get everything myself. Compared to sound shops takealot seem to have the best deals

you must call bro, that mense is busy there, no time to sit on emails and what not lol,

kicker is good, they also a dealer as well, including Rockford and all your other high end audio,

call Riaz 021 557 4155 and speak to him about the installing and he will also advise accordingly...

Thanks man. Im planning on replacing the back styrofoam compartment underneath the boot carpet with a box of the same size. Maybe slightly raised for more volume and to protect the equipment. And then just cut a shorter carpet

Yeah BB very similar to that but my wmi is on that side of my boot which is why I want to use the back compartment. Thanks for the pic!

If you use the left hand side then I'm sure you will have enough volume for a 10 inch. Mine was a 8 inch Rockford sub
