Opinions on possible sub install


Hi all, i was just after afew opinions on a sub install (basshead maybe). i have a spare spare wheel cover/boot liner thing and was wondering if i used some mdf and fibreglass and made it into a moulded sub box and maybe cut a hole in the bottom for the sub to breathe above the spare or something. not sure if it would sound any good or even work but was just after some other peoples input

Re: Opinions on possible sub install


sounds possible you would need to ensure the enclosure is secured and wont move at all (would make getting the spare out quite tricky), but would be an excellent stealth set up of course at the expense of some sound quality.

I am currently refining a set up for removable subs with the mono block amp mounted under the flap on the left back side of the boot. Not sure if this would be the path that you want to go down but i should have some pics up tomorrow when i get hold of my mates camera.

You could possibly make the box to fit spare wheel well with a hole for the locating bolt and install the sub after the box is mounted, just ensure that you keep the black foam for the surrounds as this provides structural integrity to the boot floor.

Its great to see some more people thinking outside of the box

Re: Opinions on possible sub install


if you are getting serious (very serious) about sound..mount the spare wheel externally on one of the (various threads...lpg or spare wheel) mounts and use the whole boot, either with a false floor or utilising the under floor space and the original floor. A load of room to play with, provided you can give up the space emoticon

 If you just want to run a few amps and subbies....under the seats and sub boxes in the boot,,, if you arent carrying gear all the time that will save a heap of time and effort.

If you really wanted you could whack a Sub INTO the spare wheel foam through the floor...depends how keen you are. Bass through your accelerator pedal..

Re: Opinions on possible sub install


Taylor, that was another method I considered when looking at various designs for a sub box. The only problem that prevented me from doing it was the fact I'd need to cut holes in the boot floor to allow the sound out. I didn't want to destroy the floor panel, but then I guess they are probably commonly available from wreckers if you wanted to try cutting one up and/or keep one as a spare.

I didn't measure the volume of the dish in the top of the foam, but at a guess it would be suitable for any sub recommended for a small sealed enclosure. My old Earthquake Magma12's were optimally designed to work in a 1cu.ft. sealed enclosure. I think the 15inch version was 1.2cu.ft, which is damn small, but I don't know if the dish in the foam is 15inch diameter, nor if it's 1.2cu.ft either emoticon The easiest way to measure it's volume would be to fill it with water. 1cu.ft = 29L from memory... I don't remember if the figures stated were net or gross volumes (ie: whether they factored-in the speaker frame/magnet/cone displacement).
