The only thing you do need to do is create a vent to the cabin or the trunk just shakes... open the hatch in the middle of the seats is one way... for me not an option anymore because that's where all my amps are. Plus I have two of those Sound Ordnance subs under each front seat too.
Hey Simafour, do the Sound Ordnance fit perfectly under the legacy seat, in other words are they hidden or do they stick out? I had one of these in my 09 Forester and it fit like a glove, loved the bass output.
