if you had this trunk, where would you place a single sub? i'm going to fiberglass it, sealed, somewhere but i cant decide where. it cant be in the floor, because im doing a false floor there for the amps. any suggestions?

What size sub?

it'll be a 12. i hate suv trunks. they are so awkward to do small installs in.

either side of the truck, firing straight across.

make a fiberglass enclosure that would make it look like one wheel well comes up and extends towards the back...i dunno

Fiberglass it on the left wheel well.

I found the most bass responce when my subs fire stright back at the back doors.
Not much from them firing towards me.
For a long time I drove around with my subs firing up. (as you see in my sig.)
I got a real good responce from them but...
when I turned them babies away from me (towards the back doors) ,
Oh my, it was amazing!
My friends swore I had a new amp.
Set-up is everything!!!
With one sub, it'll be different... But, I think you'll find the above will steer you in the right direction.
Slap together a cheap mdf box, and play with different placements.
Then go build that fiberglass box formed off the wheel hump.
You'll always know it's in the best place, for that sub, for that suv.
Just my 2 cents worth,

I'd make a MDF skeleton with an angled back wall, and fiberglass the front baffle.
