What did y'all do about the pressure vents in the rear wall? My box would fit perfectly if they were not there.

I remember seeing one guy take them out and cover them with sound deadening. He said it didn't effect things too much (that he noticed), but I'm not sure I'd want to try it or even recommend it personnaly.

Most boxes that I've seen either stop just under the vents, or they build it up in front of the vent so that it's behind the box (but with a slight gap so that it doesn't rub or restrict all airflow). If you build up the box to cover the vent, then you might want to add spacers to the rear seat brackets so that it moves it forward to provide more clearance.

I have a 2nd Gen but took out the vents, covered them with sheet metal and caulk. Then sound deadened over everything. I don't see any reason to have cab vents if you are going to put in subs. I want to build pressure in the cab with my subs. SPL is fun.

The only thing I've ever noticed is the doors are a bit harder to close than it was before the vents were gone. Outside of that, every car/truck I've owned was fully sealed/sound deadened and I've never had issues.
