    running a NON free air 8" free air in rear deck.

    hey i am wanting to buy a pair of kicker comp 8" subs and runn them in the rear deck for some bass, i would like to leave the car kinda stock so...im trying not to ruin the metal of the rear deck. i will be able to give the subs 150w each for bass but will they sound like **** without a box?! i mean if they wont produce bass to atleast move the rearview, its not worth it too me. any opinoins? ideas, i dont really wanna run a system i was planning on it but once the car is restored its gone, so not worth it to me. thanks yall. P.S. would 6x9s possibly produce more bass in a free air application? thanks again

    this one has a very low, space requirement but still wondering if, running a sub free air would be useless. http://www.etronics.com/product.asp?...ore=&catid=374

    The Comps are made to handle free-air applications,it says it on their site(PDF File/Owner's Manual).The Comp 8's should be louder than a 6x9 but I've read Tang Band make a 6x9 sub-woofer(8 ohms/paper cone) that pounds pretty good.I'm also thinking of a IB setup as well ,except I wanna put them facing the back seats, just cant decide on what to get

    you could build a box for the back side of the deck.

    thanks man, im finding the 10s are cheaper and might run a couple 10s in the rear deck but that will kill the whole "stock" idea.
