edit: these are 4ohm svc, so the 1500 might be just the right ticket, since they are underrated and more efficient at 2 ohms anyway.
so just to double check, these alpine SWR-T12 or T-10's will sound good even though they won't really be in an enclosure? since they will be in the side paneling? will that be fine? I guess since they are thin / shallow they are made for small spaces?
I mean the footprint is the problem, if I can get a .6 cube enclousure to work and fit in the side paneling that would be great if it works, does anybody have a pic of a .6 cube size box can it fit in the side paneling or how does it work?

Subwoofer install pics - Page 10
this is kinda what I was talking about. I think your side panels may be different, but you get the idea..
ok i just went and took some pics of the side panels, do you think a sub can go in each of these compartments on the side? in the middle where the jack stuff is i could put an amp for sure right? it's a pretty big space. also i think that entire plastic area can come off so it could provide more area? i dont know if a 12" would work though, maybe a 10" ?
what do you think? any chance?
oh yeah...I think you can work with that. Maybe someone like pro-rabbit can offer experienced info on this...but it looks like you might get some serious output...maybe at least a 8" or 10" would get down, if you could do ports..

Awesome! I'm getting a lot of good info, so you think those 8" would work even with those big magnets? Those would go in the side panels in that compartment right? I already sent pro rabbit an email but, he's always so busy I don't know when I'll be able to actually speak to him, hope soon.
Well I ended up getting the Alpine's found a deal for $530 for 2 - 10's brand new shipped. I'm going to stick with the 1500w sundown amp as I measured the area where it could go and there's more than enough room. Found some local installers to install the subs into the rear side panels. Now, my question is, will this system take up too much power where it will drain the car battery? Or dim the lights or something? Should I run it off it's own separate battery?
so how did the alpine sound im thinking of getting some alpine swr t12 but dont know how they sound
i was going to update this thread but, forgot. they sound awesome but, i did install 4 of them! it sounded really good with 2 but, for me i wanted to see if i get even more bass out of it, so i had 2 installed in the rear panels intially then i had 2 more installed in the floor (cargo area where the jack and other things go, there was enough room) the only thing is that I have to upgrade my amp, that sundown amp does 3000 watts rms on one ohm i think. we have it on one ohm but, the amp has been blown the fuse a few times. so i'm starting to look for another amp. there's a lot of bass like i can feel it all over, it's really crazy i have keep it down at times because of my ears lol i think i might get hearing damage haha i also just had the door speakers upgraded to hybrid audio imagines in the front and the basic mirus in the rear.
Do you have pictures of how you did your setup? I also have a cx-9 thanks
