We had someon on here make a fiberglass enclosure for some 8's in the rear speaker location in a fox. I am currently puttin a slim 9" in my door of my 94 gt but its not a beginners project and if I were charging someone for all the work I did it would not be cheap.

So yes it can be done question is how much you want to pay or how much work you want to do.

Did you use the factory speaker wires for the doors or were able to fish them through the tube that connects between the door and the car?

to get wires through the boot all you need is a coat hanger and some tape. There really isn't a need to run extra wiring unless there will be multiple speakers in the door, stock wiring is fine unless you are competing.

I confirmed that my MS-8 is currently getting a factory-amplified, speaker level signal from the LF/RF/RL/RR speaker wires in the trunk, and I'm certain that I hear bass roll-off at high volumes with the current setup. No matter how many times I tweak the settings on the MS-8, it sounds like the mid-bass drivers and the subwoofer are being compromised by the signal.

I brought my car back into the shop today and explained the "J4" Sub-output harness to my installer. I also reiterated that I want to cut the factory amps completely out of the equation and to instead splice into pre-factory amp high/mid signals. Here's hoping this solves it! Question for you: did you run your factory-spliced signals as Speaker Level inputs into the MS-8, or did you have to wire them up with RCA ends at the MS-8's Low-Level inputs?

I had another question regarding your "REM IN" setup on the MS-8. Do the MS-8 and your amp continue to play when you turn off the ignition/accy *AND* remove the key? With the way my equipment is wired right now, the audio cuts out as soon as I remove the key from the ignition but the Nav/Radio screen is still on (as it should be). Do you have this problem? If not, how did you overcome it? You had described that you used the "accessory switched voltage rail for REM IN". Where is this located in the vehicle?
Did you ever get your issues fixed with the MS-8? Looking at a similar setup for my 2013 and came across your post.
