I've been working on getting the stereo system buttoned up lately. I'm still waiting on some more speaker wire, so I could only get 2 speakers installed today.
I got some MDF board and measured out the space where I wanted to mount the rear speakers. I glued some layers together to get the depth I needed and then cut the hole for the speaker.

After mocking up the box, and triple checking my measurements, I took a deep breath and drilled holes into the bedside for the expandable rivet nuts to hold the speaker boxes in place. It's always nerve wracking to drill holes into a highly visible spot, but at some point you just gotta go for it!

Then primer and paint, and ready to install in the front and rear.

I also installed USB charging plugs in the top of the boxes, so anyone sitting in the back seat can keep their phones charged.

The bass sub and the amp are mounted under the rear seat, so I plan on making a 1" spacer to give them a bit of room to breath. But that's down the road.
