Subwoofer In Boot


Recommended Posts

Hey guyz,

anyone know if it is possible to fit 2 10" subs in the boot?

i checked a few subs online that come with boxes and the measurements all look too big.

they are all about 38cm high and i dont think it will fit.

anyone managed to fit 2 subs in?

Pics?

Cheers.

i have two 12" in a shallow box from alberts, but if i did it again id go one really good 12" say a rockfords or somthing that takes heaps of power and get a side mount box so that you can use your boot still!

I haven't been in the high end car stereo scene for about 10 years. But JL Audio used to make great subs. Dual 8ohm voice coils, wired in parallel drops the unit to 4 ohms. Then wire two of them in parallel for a 2 ohm box. Run if off a big alpine V12 amp.

jaycar amps have always proved themselves...

ive had dramas with jaycar woofers tho... all have let go of voice coils... without overpowering.

VDO dayton woofers and Jaycar amps were the best combination ive heard in a sedan.

whatever you do, make sure everything is power matched, and the box is tuned. cables can never be too thick in gauge.

ive got some oldschool basic box design programs i can throw on a disc if anyone is interested

Guys what is the best Sub/Amp combo to use on a V35 coupe with stock Bose speakers. Is that possible? At the moment i like to crank my sound up to about level 20 would be nice to get Subs.

Thanx for the reply guyz, appreciate it.

i currently have a soundstream stealth 700wrms @ 2ohm amp waiting to go in the boot and that is why i am finding it difficult to get subs to match.

maybe i will check out alberts.

You can do what I've go done (only one side though), a custom side mount box for both sides if you want two subs, but the subs is best to be ten inches (you might get away with twelve inches but less space) and you will have to remove or relocate your jack.

OK maybe someone can explain this ohm thing to me.

I have the following amp which is rated 700watts RMS at 2ohms and 1200watts RMS at 1 ohm

And i found the following sub that may fit in my boot. but it is 500watts RMS at 4 ohms.

Will this do? i am not after loud music, i just want clean bass at low levels and once in a high level.

Or this sub which is a 600 Watts RMS at 1 ohm.

Wow that looks awesome 81gSKy

How much would that cost? i am not good with tools.

I'm not either, best to order it from the States cause they already have them made from moulds, instead of some guy doing it for the first time fiddling around. It pretty much slots in, plug and play, have a look on eBay or other V35 or G35 related sites and forums. Last time I saw it was about $350 each side, there's some fibreglass work as well hence the price.
