This. I had a 1,000 watt rms MTX amp in my ES with no cap and there was barely any voltage drop at high volumes. If you want more peace of mind without the cap, you could do the "Big 3 upgrade".

What are the steps to run the wires from the battery to the rear? Do I have to remove seats to get it to the trunk?

I am sure it sounds so much better. I have been thinking of doing the same with a little different set up. I really do not want all that junk in trunk. I would like to build a custom box and attach it to the area where the shat sub woofer is now tucked out of the way. Any way congrads on your install and enjoy!

A pair of high powered 8" in a small box should do the trick.

Nice equipment. Is the sub firing through the ski hole?
