Default what have you done to compensate for the weight?

what have you done to compensate for all the weight in the trunk of your CARS??...the plan to be in the trunk is gonna be

1) big as sub box
2) 2 50lb woofers
3) 4 d1200 batts OR 2 d3100 (weight/space depending)

im estimating its gonna be about 300lbs...im gonna try and get some of the batts in the cabin as well, behind the seats to try and balance the weight a little better...the amps will be in the cabin as well, attached to the back seat, folded down

If the weight is lowering your car significantly, buy some lowering springs and put them in the front only Or buy some air shocks and install them in the rear to give yourself a little bit of lift. Not really much you can do.

My car doesn't know the difference of having the stereo installed or not. I hauled a semi flywheel and clutch in the back of my car (before I had the sub) and that didn't even make my car squat.

Probably because my car has solid suspension.
