    How would this work with the trunk latch though? That's my only other concern because I have no way of opening the trunk without the electrical button for my trunk to open and this gives me the feeling that I'll be putting a hell of a lot of pressure on it. It's a nice idea though..... maybe if I can find a cheap honda on Craigslist to give it a shot with 😂

    Now that does look pretty wicked. How does it sound? I feel like sealing off both back and front waves would cause cancellation no?

    How would I know if my speaker would perform well in a band pass? I like the thought of that

    Which sub? I'm sure we can help you figure out if a 4th or 6th is a good option.

    You'd more than likely have to take out the torsion bars and build a small box(like with cardboard) around the actual latch as well as the bars that move when you open the trunk. The vertical movement ones. Its just more of a neat idea than anything.

    Trunk cars are already a Pos to deal with bass wise. Without seats folding down. Your basically left with a strongly deadened and reinforced IB install using the back deck.

    4th/6th is cool and all but **** difficult to get right and I doubt you (or I) have the knowledge to make one right.

    Gain on an amplifier to meant to be matched to the output voltage of your headunit. Think 3 volt, 4 volt, 5 volt pre out specs you see on headunit specs. This is how gain works for a given pre out(5 volt) theoretically. However most head units clip(start to distort) at around 80% of your volume so your 5 volt pre out wont give 5 volts Cleanly. You will most likely get 4 volts out at something like 33/40 on your volume knob and would thus set your gain to 4 volts. (these things can be measured with a GOOD Multimeter. )
    80% of your total volume is (max volume) X 0.8.
    Example is 40(is your max volume so, 40 X .8=32

    Sub up port back/ side will be your only option I think

    Re: Building in trunk?

    okay so I worked out what kinda space I have and I need opinions. I can do 35w 15h 32d. I obviously don't have enough space for the sub to fire horizontally so what should I do? this would be a hell of a lot easier if I had some 12s lol

    didn't think to hit discontinued. how would building an enclosure in trunk go, while firing up?
    Might have someone interested in buying locally so ill probably just end up with a Q Neo 15. But I'm curious if anyones ever done a trunk wall, firing up, and sealing off behind the woofer in that way?

    Sure why not. Just remember. You're limited in bass by how much air you are letting get to the cabin, sure you can fire it up and seal off the rest but you're limited by the little air that is getting through the back deck. basically you are trying to do an spl build in a trunk which is **** difficult, with seats that down fold down and its all pushing a boulder uphill. Start cutting metal or figure out how to fold your seats down. Hell, you could even rig up something to make them fold down.

    If you just want bass for your system, get subs that fit in the back deck already and be done with it.



    Gain on an amplifier to meant to be matched to the output voltage of your headunit. Think 3 volt, 4 volt, 5 volt pre out specs you see on headunit specs. This is how gain works for a given pre out(5 volt) theoretically. However most head units clip(start to distort) at around 80% of your volume so your 5 volt pre out wont give 5 volts Cleanly.

    You keep questioning the same thing over and over again. Why not sell the sub and go with a few smaller ones, keep it simple...and build a ported box, fire thru rear deck. Unless you want the frustrated headache and wasted time on trying to accomplish something that sounds like you've never done before.

    These guys here have done trunks builds....if they say it can be done but is abitch, then I'd trust them. if John Kuthe mentions anything about it, ignore him.
