crazypete said:I went that route before. I tried to sink 2 jl audio 12/10 inch woofer 's into the back panel plastic and there was little to no bass. Tried the same sort of thing using the doors. No good. I tried all of the "natural spaces" on the car and none of them woofed.
What's wrong with the wheel well anyways?
Here's what I did: I got a jl audio powerwedge. It's a sort of rectangular box with a slope on the backside and it was covered in grey fuzz like the trunk and almost exactly the same color. I flipped it facing the back of the seat so it looked like the back of the seats sloped down. The woofer speaker was directly up against the back of the seat. I took that seat backing plate off and used the woofer as the seatback support. Hooked this bridged to a kenwood kac646 and it would shake your fillings out. People would tell me they were getting a back massage while we cruised. Thats about the best you can do. Trust me, tried it all in the name of stealth. Anything smaller will suck. Pancake woofers suck. free air woofers suck (bigtime). Suck=not good bass....more like heavy midrange. You dont really get the yeah homie g effect with them.
BUT....you could get 2 "sucky" pancake woofers from a tuarus SHO and plant one under each seat with a lot of trimming and such. Then power them up with a 2 channel mono amp. Not good bass but you will feel it directly. Might need to move the fuel pump relay though....mad stealth and decent bass. No space loss and junkyard parts to boot.
Oh, btw....need woofers? I still have the jl audio 10 and 12 inch woofers as well from the project mentioned above. Perfect shape. Gimme a holler if you do

So last week I made a box out of 1/2 inch MDF that was 36.5" wide, 6.5" tall and 12" deep, added 1 10" pyramid 300watt sub. I put 1.5 inch feet on the box and have the sub pointing at the floor. It fits snug between the wheelwells right up against the seat back. You can feel it in the seat and it fills the car with bass. If you want ghetto bass, port the box with two 2" ports and set the crossover to 30Hz. It sounds way better than the angled 2x10 box that I had before AND it makes a nice shelf in the back to set things on.
And to correct something I read earlier in the thread. If you run two speakers from one amp output you subs will sound like dookey. You need to bridge the speakers by running the pos. to one speaker (+) and the neg. to the other speaker (-), then run a wire from the (-) on the first speaker to the (+) on the other speaker.

Crappy diagram but I hope it gives you an idea.
never mind, the diagram gets screwed when I post it.
