I need some help. I am going rebuild my box and I need ideas.
The problem is getting the box to fit in the trunk. Open for suggestions. The box I have now is
15x21x33 tuned to 28hz I think. <-- this because I had to cut down the original box cuz it wouldnt fit.

Ported Box T5-12
Min. Vented (ft.3) 2.00
Port (dia. x length) 4x10
Fb (Hz) 36.16
F3 (Hz) 31.76
Opt. Vented (ft.3) 2.50
Port (dia. x length) 4x8 (2)
Fb (Hz) 36.16
F3 (Hz) 30.11
Max. Vented (ft.3) 3.00
Port (dia. x length) (2)4x20
Fb (Hz) 34.09
F3 (Hz) 28.62

Fold rear seat down and slide it in through the cabin?

Im guessing that your width is 33, your height is 15, and your depth is 21..

I know that on my Sunfire all I had to do was remove the small plastic pieces behind the actual seat and then i could slide it right in..

Edit: Nvm, read that post wrong I think..

I had to put my sons ported box in his cavy through the rear seat.. No chance of it fitting into the trunk opening.

My sons box is bigger then the one you have and it fits in his 99 RS. I will measure it for sure and find out.. Did it fit easy hell no but with some muscle and twisting and **** I got it in.

Yea, I also thought about cutting the wings off the rear deck..... PROBLY NOT. but it was a 6cft with 120 sq in port tuned to 33, but too big, had to chop it down.

I thought about taking it off and maybe try to find different hinges for it. So if anyone knows where I can find some cheap reliable hinges for trunks let me know.

I know what you mean, I ****ered up some of my interior trying to get this chit in there.

I posted these spec to show a single subs parameters. But I will be using two subs. How does subs up port back sound? Or subs up port passenger?
