    Crazy Idea?

    I was looking at getting subs for my car. I was looking at a custom enclosure to fit between the wheel wells with a couple JL 10's. Then I thought what about putting a box where the pass through (Ski opening) is. I was looking and I think a JL 8 will fit. The plan is to make a box to fit there and mount the amp to the back so I could remove it for drag racing Let me know know what you think. Would it be worth it? I don't need car shaking bass just enough to feel it inside the cabin and hopefully not hear it outside.

    Sounds like a good idea. A small sealed enclosure gives nice tight, accurate bass. Make sure you get s sub designed for a small enclosure. Not sure about the JBL.

    JLs are versatile subs. I had a couple in a huge box and they put out a deep rumbling tone in my old car with a big box. I put them in a MUCH smaller box for the WRX. I mounted my amp under the passenger seat so I didn't have to deal with it. The box is Very easy to remove. Detach the speaker wire and pull out the box...thats it the cars minus probably 40 lbs.

    The only issue I have with my setup is that I need to keep the box from sliding around in the trunk on drastic turns! Any suggestions?

    Do you have hooks in your trunk? In my Wagon I just drilled screw eyes into the box and attach it with hooks to the cargo hooks in the back. If no....Velcro? You wouldn't need much - just a dot at each corner or something. It doesn't need to be much to keep it from sliding.

    Pass through sub

    I had the same Idea about putting an 8 incher in the pass though. I looked at it quite a bit and I don't think that there is enough room. If you are able to do it please post some pics because I would be right behind you.
