    Default New Car

    Got myself a new car this weekend and I am trying to decide whether its worth it to install my subs and amp in the new car.

    Car:

    2006 Infiniti G35x


    System:

    Kicker 1200.1
    Kicker 10" Solobaric L7(2)

    I want to keep it super simple, do you guys think I should just buy a premade box and stick the subs in or go through the effort of having a custom setup done again. If so, ported or sealed? How big?

    If youre wanting to keep it "plug and play", just get a good premade box that has the proper interior volume for your subs.

    Sealed would be the best way to go if youre wanting a premade. Ported can work well but they usually have to be built specifically for the sub in order to make em work best.

    For a car that nice, I'd rather have a custom box that fits in some small little corner, barely visible only if you know where it is. I also second sealed, as I'm more SQ than SPL.

    I'd have a custom box built for a single 10" sub. Do you really want to hoopty ride a G35?

    two L7's aren't going to fit "barely visible" in any car...

    Decided to cut it down to 1 10" and a smaller amp. Going to be selling the rest of the stuff.
