My sister just turned 16 and is getting her license this week. As her b-day present im putting a whole system in her car, two 8" kicker CVR's, kenwood mono amp, pioneer HU and infinity coax's.

Anyways, i need to design/build the box now, but i have no idea what the trunk of a ford escort looks like. I believe its an 01-02, ZX2 sport model. The model right before the Ford Focus began being made.

If anyone could get me some dimensions/picture, that would be great!

the zx2 is almost a separate car from the sedan escort at least in the way the interior and trunk are laid out. the seats fold down so i would do a box firing into the cabin, but I don't happen to know the dimensions. there are several zx2 forums online that I'm sure someone has already posted dimensions on

thats some good info to know, thanks. It is in fact the ZX2 model, i know that. She probably wont want to keep her back seat down though, so it'll most likely be sub back/port back with an open rear deck.

unless sealed aff completely, his most likely best bet will be subs/port facing towars trunk

thanks for the info. Im going to go more around 2-2.5cu ft @ 32-ish hz though. I seemed to get the best results out of the CVR's with that size/tuning.

well, that would be the minimum space for 2 8"s, so a little bigger would be alright, i wouldnt go past 2.4 though

And i am Devin (sort of, middle name)

i've been disappointed with the stereos around here, but last night i was chilling with my girlfriend, and a chev pickup drove by with quite an impressive system. I hope i run into that guy sometime.
