    Shallow mount subs

    I've got about 7 inches to play with. Because of this I'm looking for some really shollow mount subs (probably 8's because of room). The 8 inches includes the box. I'm looking for some suggestions for what type of subs sound good and have a very small mounting depth.

    Re: Shallow mount subs

    What kind of install are you doing? Car wise and what not? RE8's perhaps.

    Re: Shallow mount subs

    The install is behind the seats of a fiero. I don't want to cut into the firewall. What kind of sub is the pioneer? RE8? Is that by Rockford?

    Re: Shallow mount subs

    I found the earthquake subs earlier today and was trying to find another place other than earthquakesound.com that offers them but came up empty. Anybody know of any other place that they're offered. Illusion Audio went out of buisness. An old dealer of them told me about earthquake, but he didn't know any authorized dealers of them. I don't care if they're authorized or not, I'd like to find a couple of other places that sell them.......suggestions?

    Are these something that are just beginning to appear on the market and worth waiting a couple of months on to see where the markets heading?
