It is actually quite new setup, but so far I have not experienced any noise.
It sounds really good :)

Do you have that problem?

Usually that annoying noise is your license plate. Just cut some kind of material and fold and insert underneath until the noise stops if infact it is the license plate. Thats what my problem was on all of my cars that I installed subs in.....

i did in my previous car i had 2 12's (dont even say it, i know haha) it would sound pretty ugly, but then i sold them because i needed some cash at the time. but no i dont have any subs yet, i might want just like 1 10' for some bass but other than that, thats about it.

What size sub is that? And how did you fit the mdf over the two sides of the rear metal and still get the rear seats to sit back flush? The pass-through design that BSW uses (and that some have a DIY version of) is flush with the back panel and the sides of the "box" are as close to the pass-through as possible but yours don't look like that. You have anymore pics of the box and/or instal? Looks pretty good man. You have a ton of cubic feet and it looks like you still have a lot of trunk space!

Hi jazzyjeff,
It is only a 10 "sub - but it plays just fine.
It is a 19mm MDF, it fits nicely behind the rear seat. The entire box is 25 liters, and there is still much space.

I do not have more pictures of installation- but I might take more pictures if there is something you will see ?

what are the measurement of the box? looks really nice.
Hi e46vert,

Thanks!
Measurement of the box:
Width: 68 cm (26.77 inch)
Height: 22 cm (8.66 inch)
Depth: 20 cm (7.87 inch)

Overall, including the box between the rear seat 25 liters.

Looks good man and I like the idea of it being a fully enclosed box. If I don't just go with a powered BassTube, I might go with something like this. I think the only thing I would do different is make the back panel go all the way across the trunk. But I definitely like it! :thumbsup:

Looks good. I think 1 10" is a perfect set up. I have 1 12" and IMO it's too much. The gain on my LOC and amp is basically turned down half way from full maybe slightly under half. Yes, the bass is nice at times but to me it's an overkill. Was thinking about downsizing to 1 10", but do I really want to spend the extra money if not needed? NO.....So I guess I'll stick to my 12".

Have the dynavin headunit. Got a self powered 8" Bazooka in mine. Opted for the metal mounting brackets.

Sound is much better than the stock setup, I am running component speakers in the doors and the rear. Sounds great, have a 4 channel 600w amp running the 2 sets of component speakers.

The sound is loud, clear and tight, even with the top down on the freeway.

What size component speakers are you running? I'm looking to do mine as well, but i'm afraid the DIY part of mounting the tweeter's and mids will be a PITA.

Running 6" mids all the way around. The mounting is simple if you are handy with some mdf and a few basic tools.

how thick of mdf did you use? I know there is minimal spaces between the door panels and mounting surface for the speakers. I guess the only way to find out is to DIY. ill eventually get to it one of these days. if and when i have time.
