Hey i'd rather see a 10 year old thread that has info in currently than him start a new thread with nothing. Also to be fair he was in the thread 10 years ago too
I actually just went through the thread myself to get some ideas. I've got a few other things to do first, but stereo is on my list. I like the idea of flipping the spare upside down and making an enclosure that fits inside.
Sorry but there's almost no room under either seat. Certainly not enough for a sub enclosure. I have the amp for my front speakers mounted under the passenger seat and it's only a couple of inches tall. It doesn't fit all the way under the seat. There's even less room under the drivers seat.
Two possibilities are to mount the enclosure where the spare tire is or somewhere else behind the back seats. I built one that fits right up behind the rear seats and covered it with black carpeting including welting at the seams. It has 4 down firing 6 1/2" subs and sounds great. It has 6 1 1/4" tall carpet covered feet to raise it off the floor slightly and they're spaced to fit around the spare tire. I mounted the sub amp and rear speaker amp on the front side of the box facing the rear seat backs. If you don't look very closely, even with the hatch open, it looks totally OEM.
I did have a somewhat larger and similar shaped box with 2 10" subs but wanted a bit more space back. I made these boxes with quick disconnect power plugs and rear speaker plugs for easy removal when necessary. The signal cables just unplug as well.
Now if only someone made an easy to install speaker pod for the lower front doors.
Hey, drjim. Just wondering what your experience with that compact subwoofer was and where you ended up mounting it. I'm just looking for some bass in my car. Not an audio person but who doesn't like mediocre audio. I want a clean set up where there isn't a giant box in my trunk all the time.
I know theres going to be a fair number of questions about installing the new Northwest Auto Leather seat and panel skins, so I figured we should have a dedicated thread for it to keep the forum clean. So instead of starting a new thread with your questions or tips please ask/post them here.
