    Re: How do you fit an 18" in a Kia???

    Well, this build consists of a DD3500E (recently reconed to an 18D2) an a MA Audio HK602SX.

    Its a removable/bolt-in port wall built outside the vehicle. One key problem w/ this build was the fuel pump. Its designed to be serviced from under the back seat, so the build had to be some-what removable so that in case the pump needs service, some one can get to the panel below the rear seat to work on it.

    Well, removing the door to get the box in and out is part of this...lol.
    Did a test fit tonite, left the bay about 1AM.

    The ports are removable/changeable.

    Here is a pic of the 'shell'
    The second layer was not yet placed on the top (pic actually shows the bottom of the box)



    5/8" threaded rod bracing and bolt-in vents.


    1.5" thick MDF all around.

    No, the seat is coming out and it will be mounted and trimmed out. Likely a pair of DD 6.5VO's and B2's in the trim above the box.

    lol, I fit an 18 in my little Hyundai and it's a hatchback not a 4 door...had to remove the rear seats and ALL the plastic panels from the hatch area to get it in, then replace them in a specific order, but it fits (tight like a good woman).
