    Scion xB Box question?

    I want to run a XXX 15" in the trunk of my Scion xB but I dont want to screw all my trunk space up. I wanted to know if this was possible and is there anyone here that has built a box for this car yet? Any help would be awesome. I already have a custom enclosure right next to the spare tire for me amp, I just need a space saving idea for the XXX. Thanks.

    a 15" XXX in your scion plus an amp is alot of extra weight.
    A XB is not the type of car you put a 15" XXX in.

    so you would want a sealed box to save space?

    ?

    would the suspension really not be able to handle a 15" plus a ported box?

    space is one thing, weight's another....

    Re: Scion xB Box question?

    I actually like the xB, but I have to agree that if you want a XXX in that you're going to have to kill alot of your space....

    I LOVE the tC! That thing kicks the **** outta Civics and cavis in the style department!

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

    Re: Scion xB Box question?

    Yea I really love the tc as well but my xB is just a sweet car to cruise in. How much space would I need for a box for a XXX 10"? or a 12"?

    i personally think the xb is one of the ugliest cars made (almost as ugly as the element), but the tc is a cool looking car.


    I say get one 6.5 inch pyarmid in a 14.5 cube box tuned to 12 hz

    Re: Scion xB Box question?

    im not understanding the "15xxx is not the sub you put in a xB" comment. are you talkin about space? or suspension or engine power? cause they can carry 4 full size people im sure they can carry a box and a 15xxx....
