Can you guys post some pics of your sub enclosures? I think I may not go with the free air subs and I would like to get some ideas. I dont want to kill alot of trunk space though... so please no pics of sub boxes sitting in the middle of the trunk...

thanx

Lorna

Lorna,
When you get a chance check out my sounddomain page

http://www.sounddomain.com/id/ssimpalass95

Im running 3 12's in a sealed enclousure w/ the amps/caps to the sides. Everything is very flush and i have LOTS of trunk space (not that I use it for anything) I was considering a 1 pc billet grill to cover all 3 but im sure it would cost a good 400-600.

Yeah baby that's what I'm talking about...but where did you put the spare? [img]graemlins/3.gif[/img]

I want something just like that in whatever style or configuration that will help me keep as much space as possible. I am even willing to get a one of those skinny spare tires to conserve space.

Thanks guys

Lorna

sorry lorna i dont mean to steal the post but just wanna ask wildss about the trunk.
wildss, how hard do you think it would be able to modify that sub enclosure to have only two 10's on each side of the spare (which would be good to keep full use of for me). also, do you have any designs for that setup, like how the panels were cut, cuz thats what i was thinking of doing with the subs around the spare and on amp on each side.

Hey Lorna-
Just FYI, I tried the small donut spare on my car's right rear when the tire blew to get off the fwy. The posi rear end did not like it and made noise above 35mph. So you may have to check for a mini with clse to the same diameter as the full size.
Also, I am building a box next to the spare for one 12" on my car just don't have a camera to shoot pics - sorry. Regards- Scott

Oh yikes.... NEVER run different sized tires on a posi differential... 50 miles later you won't have a posi anymore.

If a rear tire blows and you don't have a full-sized spare swap a front one on and run the spare in the front.

The sides dont take any space really away from the trunk if you have OEM carpet installed. When the carpet is removed then you will notice the huge amount of space you have to work w/ - With that in mind if you put your amps and everything to the sides out of the way you have all the space in the world to fit 2 10's and the spare. I could fit a donut in the trunk but dont because it would look out of place just sitting there in the middle. It wasnt a concern then and still isnt 2 years later and this is my daily driver (cross fingers) - I dont have any designs on paper but it would be very easy to duplicate in the future. If a spare was a issue i could see 2 subs being very simple to do when your dealing w/ 3+ you almost have to take up the middle portion of the trunk. I need to get some shots of the trunk w/ the front cover off so you can see how much room there actually is because we have a huge rear deck and that whole area is the sealed enclouser. Like I said i could fit a spare in the middle of the trunk as it is but i wouldnt because it wasnt put together w/ that in mind and would look totally ghetto.
