This is awesome! If the PO of my zx hadn't hacked up my hatch area already, I'd probably do something similar...alas, he turned my storage compartments into amp storage and speaker boxes already.

Very impressive workmanship, and better than cutting holes in "original" interior panels. (I have no issue with cutting holes in reprodcution panels).

Normally I agree with anything Dave says, (he IS the S30 electrics demi-god), but personally, if I want good sound, I'll drive a my wife's older Lexus.

This may be a less-than-popular opinion for some, I think big sound systems are better suited to older Honda civics than a classic Z. While I'm not a purist or collector,

my perspective is that the Z is a "classic sports car", not a boom-box candidate.

Not to mention, big speak box mods will probably hurt the value of the car. If you try to sell the car with that installed, my guess is that only teenagers & college students will be impressed. Even it you remove it, the mounting holes, resulting scuff marks on the interior surfaces, panels and vinyl will lower the value of the car.

The rear speaker box sold by MSA provides reasonable sound, without all the problems mentioned, (and is well accepted by the Z community).

Personally, I won't even consider buying a car with a boom-box sound system, pimpy wheels, "racer-boy" mods, etc, no matter how nice the car looks... In my experience, this is often evidence that more time & money has been spent on those items than on proper maintenance...

For me, the stereo system / sound quality is secondary to the lovely sound of my 240Z's drivetrain.

Stepping down off my soap box now... Just one guy's opinion. Feel free to slam me.

Not something I would choose for my own Z, but very impressive work nonetheless. Nice job. Now all you need is proximity alarm, a pitbull, 357 mag, and locking car cover to keep it from disappearing. :)

Me and Kirk spoke on the phone last night for over 2 hours, and the whole alarm issue was brought up. I like his direction and the whole thing IS removable.

And I don't think he'll be selling this any time soon. Way too much to do to it first.

Well...... I have the dogs..... the 357..... a place to lock it up..... I just hate obnoxious alarms that go off every time the wind blows.
