What are the modules under the rear deck of my '90 SC? I want to locate a thin subwoofer enclosure to be attached underneath the rear deck, and want to know if moving them will affect their function.

Antilock module, as well as the ARC module., if yours has security or keyless, thats also there.

Will relocation affect their performance?

Relocate ok as long as you don't bork wiring, introduce more heat and/or EMI, etc. :) See attached component locator for details.

Where you planning to put them...?

(Keyless is over on the left side, out against the body.)

I found a sub box that just fit under the tray...then removed the stock sub and later added a trim panel running left to right, just above the new sub.

Pretty much, just slide them to the left, and build new brackets, tucking them up higher. I'm going to build a ported fiberglass/MDF enclosure that will bolt up under the deck, firing a single Kenwood or Pioneer 12" flat sub through the rear deck. I'm also going to build a trim panel that will follow the rear deck contour and hide both the modules and the enclosure. Amps will be tucked into the sides of the trunk, in front of the taillights.

Several trunk sub/amp photos in this thread... (http://forums.tccoa.com/showthread.php?t=86754)

This is what my trim panel looks like...even clears the gas lift on the left hinge.

Like to see photos of your installs when you get done if you have time. Good luck w/the project.

Looks like the audio will be put on hold, for now. I hydro-locked my motor a few hours ago.:(
