^ That's a really good price on the 1675's. I think they were $50 when I was planning on buying them new. The 1685 isn't really an upgraded version. It's the exact same speaker but 4-way instead...

How do you envision a single 10" mid driver handling L/R stereo output? Subs can be mono because they're primarily producing non-directional frequencies.

Well, if only '95+ that uses that relay and replacing that relay solved an apparently identical problem, I would begin by looking at the corresponding "little 2 wire box" on '92-94s to see if it's...

Is this (the brackets) something that might be produced for purchase, and could the same be done for the fronts?

A free air sub will never hit as hard as a box unless you do a lot of sealing of the rear deck and behind the seat. Not worth it (weight and cost), IMO. I put an Earthquake sub into the stock sub's...

Mike1JZ, that's the VSV (vacuum switching valve), not the heater control valve with the pivot that tends to develop a leak. The VSV controls the HCV's operation.

Did you weigh the CD changer to see if it really is the reported 10 lbs? I don't have mine to confirm. I replaced the sub with a better aftermarket one, so no weight savings there for me.

Mine was in there pretty tight. The bolts tend to be pinched into their holes, so it takes some twisting and tugging. Although, mine was pretty obvious how to get it free -- putting it back in took...
