    Point me in the right direction.. ASAP!

    Guys the truck in question is a 98 lincoln Navi. I want to either get a custom enclosure or MTX enclosure with the Sub firing DOWNWARD!

    This is the amp I have installed:

    Hifonics BX1500D:http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...Product_ID=218

    My choice of sub woofers:

    Ascendant Audio Assassins 10": http://www.ascendantaudio.com/assassin10specs.html

    TC1000 10" Look @ the bottom 10" for $175.00 (single voice coil)http://www.tcsounds.com/tc1000.htm

    Soundsplinters 10" http://www.soundsplinter.com/rli_ser...formation.html

    I PREFER 12" for real....

    If there any other recommendation on subs that will work that would be great.... My budget on subs is about 150 a piece.. I been told by local shop that my current subs will not work in either a seal or ported enclosure, because of the lack of space behind the 3rd row seat...

    Those subs are......http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=2159

    I know I'm long winded.. But my thoughts where to put them in a sealed enclosure and firing them downward... and call it a day since ported in not a option... I need to keep the third row seating (GOT PLENTY OF KIDS) LOL!

    They actually make a prefab box that can be bolted up behind your third row seats. It's available in 1 12" setup, not quite sure about 2 10", but I think they offer other combonations as well. If I recall correctly, it's 1 cube sealed, and leaves a lot of room for mounting the amp, and such.

    Ask your local shop if they deal with a company called 'dragon distribution' and then ask them to get ahold of Chris w/ dragon, if they do.

    It's worked out surprisingly well for most of our 'family minded' customers.

    We've also built a few customs to house as many as 3 12"s in small ported enclosures (usually tied in with the ARC 12" woofers...)

    Here's a pic we took of one of our 3rd row seat boxes. If I recall correctly, this is an expedition. Recommended airspace for the subs, too. Hah.







    *EDIT, just caught the downfire aspect.

    Yes, there is plenty of room to pull off one 12" downfire.

    and we have done a dual 12" setup like that, although it was VERY tight.





    Maxima is SOLD.
    New project COMING SOON!
