Matt.. I think I need some help
 
Any other ideas for a nice Sub set up in the back? Looking for something like the JL steathbox, without the pain of writing the check for it.

Let me know

Thanks

Hey Mac.

I assume you like the Stealthbox for it's space saving feature...?

I really only have two solutions that I have come up with.

1) Make an enclosure similar to the link in my sig - "WK 10" Enclosure". Using those angles/dimensions, you can utilize an enclosure that occupies all of the negative space that the rear seat angles create and really not lose too much cargo space. As you can see you still are able to have full access to the storage tray and the enclosure can be removed or replaced in seconds.

2) Basically copy the Stealthbox idea, but make it a larger and able to fit a 12" woofer; This is what I am in the process of doing now. The Stealthbox has very little airspace and can only house a 10" driver - this means not a whole lot of low-end extension/volume. If you're willing to get your hands a little dirty and spend a weekend making your own, then this would really be the way to go. I'm looking at spending ~100-150 for all materials requiired to make the enclosure from the glass/resin to the hardware, carpet, everything! Quite a difference compared to the Stealthbox, and you get so much more out of it.

If this interests you then I suggest you keep an eye out on my build log page (part II). I'll provide plenty of progress pics and literature for others to make their own.

Other ideas I have thought about, but scrapped.

*Build an enclosure in the passenger side footwell.
*Put monster 6.5" sub woofers in the rear doors.

yea, love the idea of the steathbox, as I don't want it to take up any cargo room. I leave the rear seats down a lot, as I fit tools and ladders in there sometime. I am just looking for some more bass. If you make a steathbox "knockoff" would love to see some pics and specs.

Yeah, I'm going forward with it very soon. I'm ordering the materials this weekend. November is a busy month for me, but I should get some adequate time during the beginning of next month to knock it out. I'll take plenty of pics and document as much as I can.
