I took the cheap way out by simply folding my bags in half. All 4 loops are on the upper knobs. :biggrin

There was no cheap way out; only the way out...LOL

Initially I pondered doing the same thing however after reflecting back on those darn bungee style net arrangements that I have received in other gals I knew that I would never use it and furthermore even with the lack of use they dry out and become a saggy rope bag over time.

Regardless; I am happy that your conversion is being enjoyed

All the best

I was pretty disappointed with the Mac system until I finished the subwoofer relocation project. I have now flipped 180 degrees and really like it. Thanks to all for the idea. I posted pictures in the photo album to show how I did it. I used the inside dimensions of the wood box but substituted one quarter inch aluminum diamond plate. My speaker mounts with spacers and the child restraint bolt holes so the pockets are un-touched and useable. My AMP bracket mounts with the holes that had the pocket posts behind the driver’s seat and I made spacers to hold the pocket straps. The Amp tabs did not get bent out and the pockets still functions as stock. The sound is terrific. The bass is now much stronger and is not blasting in my ear. This is a great fix for the MAC. If you have a Mac, you should definitely move the subwoofer.:biggrin

You did a great job; as stated before I enjoy seeing what folks do when it comes to wonderful well thought out tweaks with their gals.

As you shared and I agree; once the subwoofer is relocated the overall sound quality of the system is enhanced and the looks of the interior become very pleasing.

All the best

Nice work Don. What are you going to do for the center console? Perhaps some carbon fiber???

I just used the stock Ford engine cover. Both the amp and speaker are spaced out over the net compartments so they were not modified and can be used to store thin things.....like the emergency number when the half shafts fall out.:lol

The Mac sounds so good I went out to the garage and just played the radio for about a half hour. Great entertainment at midnight when I get all my work done.:biggrin

This is how I finnished mine. The bags get picked up tonight (resized) and attach to the original posts on the driver side and to the speaker box itself on the passenger side. I love the speaker box and the way the Mac/sub sounds.
Thanks again to ALL who helped with this Mod!

Note: No GT parts were hurt, killed or permanetly scarred in the modifing of this car.
