    Hatch lock is in the way

    Well looks like I won't be able to make my box the easy way, i.e. totally rectangular, a simple box. I wand to keep the woofer in the center, and one port of each side of it, however the hatch power lock is in the middle, and unless I can stretch ouut the box somehow sideways, the lock will prevent me from mounting the woofer in the middle.

    whatcha gona do about that?

    actually you could "stretch your box" in a sense. If you really need to do that let me know I'll tell you how. (Simple Simple)

    Yeah looks like I'll have to make the bottom of it maybe 28 inches wide, go up 10 inches or so, and then stretch out the sides some more, which means cutting into the plastic panels on one side, even though I don't mind.

    couldnt you have the sub facing toward the front of the car rather then back? In this situation, I would go fiberglassed ring top with ring and port mount rings upward towards the front of the car. Would be kind of cool.

    Re: Hatch lock is in the way

    Another problem is though, that one usually recommends the sub facing either up or back, for that car, because of the hatch preventing it from acting like a "standard" trunk located enclosure

    looks like fiberglass would be your best friend.

    i definatly wouldnt make a box out of wood in that car.

    Re: Hatch lock is in the way

    But how would I be able to tell how big to make it ? Except for making it and what ? Pumping liquid into it and measure the volume ?

    Fiberglass, hmmmm maybe, but I already got enough of a project fiberglassing a hood scoop/ram air assembly lol

    Got any pics of what exactly you mean ?

    Another thing I was wondering about was, which way to fire the sub, straight up, or angled somewhat forward ? Got duty today and this comp won't let me view the Camaro forum.

    Re: Hatch lock is in the way

    I guess I may have to build the box more close to this design:

    http://www.iroc-ss.com/subwoofer.htm

    The "standard" box for Camaro's, since I'm going with a single 10, but in a ported box.
