due to the chassis bracing in my trunk, I can't put a sub box in the traditional position (at the back of the trunk, between the rear suspension towers). Front speaker install was straightforward, and my pair of amps sit vertically behind the rear seats on the back wall of the trunk, just clearing a strut brace between the two rear suspension towers. For the rear I'm considering wakeboard enclosures and then mounting those enclosures in the stock holes in the rear deck. I could also just have a sub box stuck in the trunk but that's ghetto. I also thought about putting each sub in an enclosure, one on each corner of the trunk, but then I wouln't be able to fit anything long in my trunk, like my guitars. Need my guitars!
So, I've decided to convery the spare tire well to an enclosure for the subs. Just wondering who has had experience with this, if they have any pictures of their setup, etc. Depth is a slight issue - the speakers must be top mounted and a little more than an inch above the trunk floor to give the magnets enough clearance (the tire well is 4.5 inches deep). Instead of going with a false floor however, I really would like to engineer something that would "bubble up" around the speakers, providing speaker clearance, yet retain the stock floor height everywhere else in the trunk.
Thanks for your thoughts!
