Lightbulb ideas for a new speaker box

so this weekend i'm going to be building a speaker box for my 95 Imp ss. I want to keep the spare tire in the trunk but also have a sub woofer enclosure on the side. I was wondering if anyone has ever built a speaker box on the either side of the trunk for one sub woofer. I'm imagining a 92-96 trunk kit but with the sub woofer cut out on the side rather than the center. All info is appreciated !! P.S. I plan on putting only one 12 inch speaker in the enclosure

That's awesome that's exactly what I'm trying to do with my trunk! How did you come up with the dimensions for the boxes ? You have a blue print by boy chance ?

Nope! sorry but all it is are pickup truck style boxes i had a shop make em for me they said it wouldnt sound right, but i proved them wrong, all you need is the measurements for the height, length, and depth, and i put a cover over the box so it looks complete. you can go with a deeper box for more bass,because there is alot of room in the quarter panel, you can even go fiberglass for max air space.

I'm currently building a set up for two 10s while keeping the spare. Battery is also in the trunk and wanted to keep the other side for storing my cleaning products. So here is what I have come up with so far.

96 Impala SS BBB, Gen II Tri-Ys, 20" Irocs, Proforged 1" DD springs, Monroe SS shocks, ZQ8 bunpstops, PCM For Less tune, Taylor wires, 2" Glass Tek cowl hood, Oldenburger Concepts extended spoiler, Custom CAI, My trunk kit, My Interior Sound Deadner
