so i am having a problem i am putting in 2 12" competition subs in a bandpass box but the box hits the torsion bars that open the trunk. so if i removed them i understand the trunk door would become heavy and not stay open. so i was thinking of putting in a pair of struts or an electric actuator but need ideas how to make it all work. kinda leaning towards struts because there small and can be mounted on both sides out of my way.

So much for handling and performance with 200 pounds in the back

If you leave the bars in, they will drive you nuts rattling from the bass. I had to wrap a shop rag around mine when I had twin 10" subs.


Send a note to bob dole and see if he has a solution.

Take the junk out of that trunk! JK.

Ya, I lost a huge chunk of space with a single 10" in a sealed box. Gas tank + rear axle = small trunk. They should have just giving AAA cards with the car instead of attempting that joke of a spare tire and make the trunk bigger. Oddly enough though, I used the hand bolt for the spare tire to secure a cut 1/2" piece of MDF to secure the sub box and amp.

If you have ever rode in my car, you would know that my biggest complaint is rattles, squeaks, and groans. Any little noise gets diagnosed and fixed in some way. Just before I drove it to the storage garage it developed two new noises. My spring cleaning job will now start with removing the driver pilar trim and insulating that and pulling the dash and finding the rattle behind the glovebox.

^^^ before you dig into the dash, check the filler panel at the base of the windshield & the a/c lines if you still have it. where they pass through the firewall they can rattle against the bottom of the opening & the hard line running along the top of the firewall is also a prime source. A bit of inner tube between the fitting & the fire wall for the first & a split chunk o fuel line for the second.



How do you make a small fortune racing? Start with a very large one!!!

finally got box to fit but i think i am not getting enough air flow. so my idea is to run the ports thru the metal behind the seats between the rear speakers. need thoughts and opinions.

There ain't much metal to worry about, two 3" beams & from there it's just the trunk liner & the sound deadener between you & the back of the seat.

My 2 12 inch alpine Type R subs fits fine in my trunk along with my alpine mrv1507 along with a my other big alpine 4 channel amp. You may have to have a custom box made if you cant find one that will fit under the bars like mine does. As long as the overall volume of the box is within the recommended specs of the sub manufacturer you should be okay. Get ready for rattles with 2 12" subs though have fun.........

i was thinking of throwing one of these in the trunk after i try to get it all fiberglassed. thoughts and opinions. had them laying around for a while so trying to put them to use. i had two more but they got shaddered when my brother inlaw got rear ended and slid off road and hit a guard rail in his old ranger.


i had them set up in basement. the room they are in is probly 20' x 40' and it lit up the whole room
