View Full Version : I Miss My Trunk!!

I just finished and installed my first box, and got a shock when I realized that there is only like 4'' of trunk space left in my 2002 Monte Carlo. It doesn't sit flush with the very back of the trunk, so there is about 1 1/2 to 2 feet of space behind it that is un-used!!!

I just installed this bad boy and I already miss my beautiful trunk. Has anyone else been afflicted with this dilemma? If so, how do you go about curing it??

If you wanted trunk space, then why the hell would you put in a huge box? That's your own ******* fault.

what you got back there? I built a box for a 04 MC, it fit pretty nice. Maybe redesign your box? I got the box to fir all the way back leaving only the slant of the back seat. Which is where I put the amp and circuit breaker.

To tell you the truth, I really don't know why I made a big *** box, but I just got the urge. And there might not be any common sense in North Dakota, but we do have some good corn and wheat, and that is always good..............

EDIT: I used a Moe Lester plan, so it doesn't have too many corners to it that would help it fit a trunk, it is just a rectangle.

Do cows out number people...seriously...

But what I ended up doing is scooting it to one side to have a sort of pocket. Its fit's my bowling ball bag nicely...no jokes on the bag either...

What do you have in the box? What are the specs of the box. Im just curious.

I've got 2 Ma Audio 12'' MA121XQ's(the MA site said the optimum ported enclosure size is 2-something cubes). The box is 4.25 cubes, tuned to 35 hz. The subs ARE sounding a lot better however, seeing as how I had them in a sealed, pre-fab encloser that they came with

Why do you even have stuff in the trunk to begin with?

System > dirty old clothes and blankets and used condoms

Throw everything in the backseats/floor.

I am in love with the game of golf, and I usually am the driver of the whole crew when me and my friends go golfing. I guess this gives me a hell of an excuse to not be the driver-***** anymore :)

Yeah, most of my trunk is gone too. I have about a foot of usable space spaning the width of the trunk...that's about it. Looks good right now, but I'm going to change it up a bit. I uploaded a few of the pics into my gallery if you're curious.

Soon to go IB. :)

...Why'd you paint the port blue?

But nice for a first enclosure :)

I grabbed some spray paint out of my garage with a black cap on it, used a little bit, and sure enough it was blue. So I said f it and I just painted it blue. whatever

So you're going to carpet it then?

Puppet Master

yeah, I am, but I couldn't get any carpet. I live in a small town, and the nearest place around to get carpet is like 50-90 miles away. With gas prices, I'm not gonna make a trip just for carpet
