    Subs in Cars..Woofer Placement

    I have a 96 Honda Accord. I had the subs in the trunk and they were not getting near the power they needed. They still sounded amazing though. Now, I am pushing the subs over full power, but they are in the back seat in the same box they were in when they were in the trunk. Trunk is full of amps and batteries now. Question is, would it be better to put the subs back in the trunk, with and amps and batteries in the back seat? Or build a new box for the subs? Which would give me better response? I DONT want to wall it yet, I will do that when I get new subs. Just trying to make the most of these now.

    Sub - 2 Earthquake DBXi-12 (new coming)
    Amps - 2 Sundown SAZ-3000s, Kenwood KAC-4802
    Acc - 4 Batcap 2000, DC AD250SP alt, 4 runs of Knu 1/0 Kolossus Flecks wire, Stinger fuses and ends

    Re: Subs in Cars..Woofer Placement

    Are we referring to this build?

    My opinion (we all know about opinions): If you're happy with your trunk setup now and don't mind loosing your back seat... Remove the back seat and build an angled wall from the top of the rear deck to the floor.

    Personally though, it looks like you've got enough trunk space to get everything in there if you re-arrange it again. Plus you still have a back seat..

    stack the amps vertically, perhaps over the batts if you can to get some room.

    Put everything back into the trunk until you wall it. You are going to have cancellation problems with them being on the back seat without the rear being complety sealed off from the front. Trunk cars will get loud, you just have to know what you are doing.
