    7" sub under seat or 10" sub in trunk?

    I'm looking to add some bass to my stereo in the WRX. my last few cars have been hatchbacks so a 8" powered tube was just the right amt of thump. however, sound is completely different in a trunk so i'm trying to get some input on which way to go. here are the 2 options i'm looking at:

    1. Clarion SRV303 with 7" woofer, ported, 120W powered, will mount under passenger seat

    2. Infinity Basslink with 10" woofer, passive radiator, 200W powered, mounted in trunk

    i don't need or want tooth-rattling bass but i do want to hear and feel clear, clean lows and be able to do so at speed driving with the windows open.

    thanks for any input guys...

    Personally I would go with choice:

    2. Infinity Basslink with 10" woofer, passive radiator, 200W powered, mounted in trunk.

    I just had one installed this past weekend. It jumps up the sound of the stock stereo and gives ample bass. I looked at putting in a sub box and separate amp, but I'm 37 years old and I hate the sound of boom, boom, boom, boom, etc., etc., etc. I don't even know how you can hear the lyrics; let alone the screws falling out of the car.

    I installed the volume control under the dash. Too lazy to be creative with it.

    Its a perfect unit to boost the stock stereo output, without adding speakers and it makes a big difference in XM radio sound. Because, believe me it is not totally CD quality. But thats a different story.

    For 265.00 bucks its a good deal.

    I also agree with the 10" sub in the trunk. You could even put it in the spare tire well like lots of people have done (and posted) on this forum.

    I am partial to it , though, because I hate taking up trunk space/putting more weight in the rear.

    I understand trunk space, but adding more rear weight give you a better balanced car!

    haha. in that case he might as well have her sit on the trunk for a little bit (with a 10" sub booming).
