jkram - are you looking to attach an MDF (or equivalent) ring to the quarter panel and run the sub IB (infinite baffle)? If so, that is not a very good idea. A very sturdy/stable baffle is important to a drivers performance... and MDF ring and some 1/8" plastic is hardly a capable candidate.

If you are looking for a stealth solution check out the JL enclosure. It's pricey, but it gets the job done. I also have an enclosure that doesn't take up too much space (mostly the "negative" space in the cargo area) - you could also do a half portion of the enclosure and run a 10" sub that works well in .5-.6 ft^3.

I saw the Stealth Box for the WK, and it got me thinking. Very expensive. I haven't taken the panel out so I don't know the depth in there. Matt you got a good point about a sturdy baffle and a tight enclosure.
Well I'm looking for ideas. I hate to use up the cargo area with a box.
Expensive is right. There's nothing wrong with going IB, but the requirements (minimum) are a very sturdy baffle and a lot of open airspace.

One idea I keep tossing around is cutting part of he passenger side quarter panel off an incorporating a fiberglass constructed enclosure with it. Kind of like the JL Stealthbox, but use some of the empty space behind the panel.

There is no inexpensive solution to what you are looking for. Not without giving up some cargo space.

BTW Matt you got me started on the subwoofer idea with your stereo build.
:D

i cant remember who it was but one guy on here had a nice set up where the amp was in the cargo space under the floor in the back and his sub box was completely removable in case you need the cargo area back! check out the section a bit and maybe you can find it. he had some good pics too. good luck!
