    Subs in the trunk

    Hey guys i got a couple question to ask and absolutly no time to search for the answers myself well i just got 2 free subs and am going to make a sealed enclosure for them so my First question is...

    What kind of wood would i need to buy to construct it?

    If the subs have to go in the trunk would it make more sense to aim them at the back seat instead of the bumper?

    And last but not least what kinda info about my subs should i find out to post on here so i can get some tips on making my box sound the best i can make it and yeah sorry ppl but i gotta go to work sorry all if im bein a pain the *** THANKS ALOT!!!

    3/4" MDF, does your rear seat fold down?, and there are plenty of people here who can design you an enclosure for a small fee... $5-$10 usually...

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    just start with some dimensions that you can accomodate in your trunk and go to like the the12volt.com and use their volume calculator and then go to the specs for your subs and get some measurements for an enclosure that matches the recommendations for the subs.

    Re: Subs in the trunk

    no, there should be a section near all those numbers you dont understand that say like rec. sealed or rec. ported or rec. enclosure, something along those lines. if it says 1 cubic ft, then you try to make a box with an internal volume of 1 cubic foot. i searched for your subs and couldn't find them so i can't really help you there.
