    95 Mustang GT Box help

    so ive got a 95 Mustang GT with the Mach460 sound system. ive got 2 12" L7's that im looking to put in. ive been messing around with plywood, pieceing it together to maybe get a layout but cant seem to make any decent box to house these subs. any ideas? already tried 1 box in each corner facing each other, and diagonal facing the front of the car. maybe you guys can think of something. working with limited space. dont want to have to remove the factory box for the mach system. let me know what you guys can come up with.

    Dude just pull the Mach stuff. It's crap and it severly limits your box size. That or do a rear seat delete and build the enclosure in the car with subs and port firing into the cabin, but in my experience it won't get as loud that way as if you had the box and ports firing back in the trunk. Just pull the Mach stuff. I'd have some kicks made for some comps; the doors and door panels are rattle traps. Well the whole car is. Rear deck, quarter panels, doors, headliner, back window, seats, dash you name it. Everything in these cars rattle.

    Trust me man I know the feeling. I was hit a few weeks ago and thought the car was going to be totaled, so I ripped my system out before it went to the body shop. Well it wasn't totaled and now I'm so not motivated to put everything back in, so I'm using this time to upgrade and fix everything I half assed the first time around. You can fit a decent size box for 2 12s in the trunk with the Mach stuff removed. The Mustangs have pretty good sized trunks for a small coupe; it's the openings (rear seats and trunk opening) that **** and are tiny.

    Re: 95 Mustang GT Box help

    i guess i can try taking out my mach 460 box, but the opening on the trunk is also an issue. the box i built just barely. i mean barely fit in the opening to the trunk. glad it was a plywood box that i was just piecing together before i used mdf.

    if you unbolt the rear seat "headrest pad" and unbolt the back-seat-backs and pull all of that crap out, the opening from the cabin will open up to about 13 3/4"....this was enough room to get a single 12 in a ported box in there...i still have about 14" from the face of the box to the face of the trunk (near the latch).

    the 13 3/4" is only if you have the mach 460 speaker box removed...you only have 11 1/2" height with the box in there....

    I made my box 13" tall x 26" wide x 16" deep....just for reference

    Agree ^^^^

    If you angle the ends of the box, you can also get more width.


    Yes, the picture is huge.
