    Very interested to hear more about these Are they a sub-woofer or just a bass speaker?? and are you replacing both rear speaker with these??

    Nice spec list, should notice a difference in performance with just remocing your ICE

    :EDIT: Is this the baby?? Do they work well??

    no, these are the babies, the kevlar ones.
    they are classified as subwoofers in the jaycar site
    they replaced both my rear parcel shelf speakers

    thing to note with these are it does sound good, sound great if you are in the backseat however if you don't have them in small enclosure (i don't) you can't turn it up that loud at all, in this case, the stock speakers have a better sound to it.

    there is a lot of movement with the cone so you will need to mount it from underneath the shelf (as it hits the grill) rather then dropping it through the top and for some reason you need to redrill the holes in the parcel as they do not align with each other.

    the other option to this is the more expensive one, but same really are the JL audio ones, however i think they cost twice as much and are only 6" so you would need a custom baffle to fit it in

    Update again

    Okay, after so long, i can't stand having next to no bass, so what have i done...
    I've purchased a Clarion 12" 4ohm dual coil sub woofer (PXW1252) with a prefabricated enclosure, running the dual ohm sub in series, bridge the rear chanel of the amps to run at 2ohms also, bass punches hard, and jammed it between the rear power window motor and floor then drilled it in with a bracket.

    Also, my Bride Egro 2 with the gradation has arrived and is in my car
    was tite at the start, but after a month, very comfortable, and i don't think its tight enough anymore so will be moving it over soon and getting the brix 2

    Rolled the rear guards to accomodate the new alignment and wheels

    using NGK copper plugs now instead of the iridiums that were in there

    replace the q45 afm with z32 afm, to be tuned sat week

    Have order Cusco Toe Rod and is on the way from Japan.
    Did i mention i got Rays wheel nuts in blue as well :P
    Made the BOV atmo
    Found out the coilovers are 10/8kg
    stiffen the dampers up to 3 clicks from hardest

    Next up on the list is the radiator, so saving for that
    and possibly kazama castor arm

    Did i mention that i cracked my front bar and possibly damage my front LH fender hitting my friends driveway???

    its suprisingly still comfortable....
    but those last 3 clicks on the damper...its harsh....
    the ride is firm, grips well (can throw the tail out easily if i wanted to)
    can't wait til after the tune to really feel the cams come in for a kick!
    i played with the setting, running a tad rich at the moments, but cams feel great
