    best way : subwoofer

    ok so ive finally compiled all the pieces for my sound system, now im looking for the best way to mount my alpine type r 10" sub. Ive seen 2 solutions, both include facing the sub toward the inside of the car. Audio Intergrations perfect fit or putting the sub right up against the back seat centered in line with the center of the backseat, so i have 2 questions.

    will the type r fit in the "perfect fit" and in your opinion should i dish out the 300 bucks for that or have a custom box made to put upto the back seat..

    recomended cubic volume for this sub is no more than 1.3ft^3, im going for overall sound quality, dynomating the whole trunk in a 05 WRX

    Your sub should fit in the AI box. I have a 12" Kenwood in an AI box mounted on the right side (best location for maximizing trunk space on an 07)

    I have a pic of it here in post #7 of this thread link:

    Subaru audio problems

    Okay i have a 2008 Subaru impreza outback sport. My parents want me to keep the car stock...not happening. IM going to start off with a sound system. What i want is to buy subs for under the front two seats with a switch that i ca n turn the subs on and off with. I need to buy a converter kit so i can connect it to a stock radio (any one know how to remove this head unit?) So i bought a 10 inch shallow series sub from pioneer and im going to box it as soon as it comes in. Now i need help with what amp i should buy,(something that i can hide so my parents cant see it) and what converter i need.

    You think it will sound uneven if i dont have a subwoofer under each seat?

    Also i am looking for a cold air intake for the car. Thing is that it has that stupid sensor thing so i would need to screw it into the new cold air intake. Hope you can help, thanks Erik.
