    subwoofer placement

    I've been experimenting with subwoofer placement inside my 03 WRX. the dang trunk is so airtight, and has so much metal/support structure that hardly any bass reaches the cabin ... unless you fold down the middle armrest in the backseat. any ideas on getting better sound with a sub in the trunk? I've thought about putting 4 inch ports in my rear deck, but not sure if that would help, and I'm not ready to cut it up until I have some idea of the result. right now I'm using two bass tubes w 8" JL audio subs on the floor behind the front seats, and so far this has sounded best. not so good as far as looks tho. anyone have any ideas here?

    Not sure how much room you have, but maybe custom fab a box to go under the the front seats... You would probably have to go with something smaller then JL... From what I remember they are pretty deep running subs...

    not against leaving the armrest down, but one thing ... I'm in a manual sports wheelchair that comes apart, collapses, and fits in the back seats. it's just that leaving it down makes it more of a pain in the butt to put the wheels/frame into the back. I was hoping someone had tried porting their rear deck, as I am thinking about trying. getting bass to come thru that heavy-duty back seat is near impossible unless you give it a way out heh. I could make a custom enclosure to fit right behind the front seats, and face the subs up. back-seat passengers wouldn't like it much, but then again I rarely have more than one passenger anyways.
