    Fitting an AQ 18" in a trunk properly

    Is this doable in a 2003 Pontiac Bonneville? All i know right know is that my trunk height is about 18" for the box.

    My goal is to fit the AQ+box into $500 all properly specced.

    HDC3 18" copper coil

    at a guess I would say it probably won't fit.. an 18 takes a lot of airspace, and I know that in my car with quite a large trunk I can only just do a proper ported 15" or pair of 12s.

    Re: Fitting an AQ 18" in a trunk properly

    I have an 18 in my civic and only have about 15.5" of height for my box. I use 3 or 4" of my spare tire well to fit the extra height needed.

    18"H (top to bottom)
    55"W (left to right)
    56"D (front to back)

    My trunk isnt a square though, its wider at the back but only about 20 inches in, for example.

    either upfire or do angle front face.

    I run a single HDC4 18 in the trunk of my altima, had to cut out some metal to make it fit...

    If you fire the sub up and port to the side it will work.
