    60kg Subwoofer help

    Im looking to buy a nice subwoofer. The one i am looking at is 48kg, with the box probably around 60kg. If i put this in the boot of my 04 STI will it weigh it down or have any effect on the way it drives?

    weight-wise, you'll be fine - it's less than stowing another person in the trunk, and the car can handle that for sure.

    With more mass, your acceleration won't be as good.

    It won't break anything, but it does screw up the handling. When I installed my box (65-75 lbs) in the trunk, I noticed the front end got a little bit more loose. And the rear is now a little saggy. Need to make some spacers.

    I'm planning on trying to build an ultra-light structural box for the subs.

    With all that weight behind the rear axle (I'm guessing) it will be more likely to throw your balance/steering off than an extra passenger in the back
