Hi guys, I've a hatchback, I have a pair of swr 1042d subs and hifonics 1500d amp. i want place the custom enclosure behind the rear passenger seat and not in the trunk. Any suggestions? i know that more louder will be in trunk, but still want to place it behind rear seats.
Hello Lee and mike, The box will not basically in trunk. IT will facing up behind the rear seat, like the position of stock speakers. I have a hatchback lee, like a Accord or benz. Its a Skoda OCtavia,
http://skoda-auto.co.in/ritdi.html Actually, I can not buy sound deadning materials, like dynamat. Because, here in India, they are not avilable. And buying on eBay will cost me as same as buying a new amp. Without dynamat the trunk will be continously rattling. I havent installed my system yet, I've heared my friend's system. He has a cheap and crap in his car LOL, that also make the the trunk to rattle which looks like sh-it when someone is standing outside the car. Thats why I am asking, that how much will be difference in the bass if I place behind rear seat and not in trunk.
i'm still lost if you have a trunk or not? if it's like an accord than it's a trunk. i'd put them facing towards the rear, maybe putting the rear seats down if you don't use them to open it up more. or not using the rear seats at all and face them inside the cabin.
mike, i'm not planning to place the box on rear seat and cannot put down the rear seats. You knowthe place where the stock speakers are placed? on a plastic, or what it is, tray? which can be seen through rear windshield. I'm posting the link fo the car's pics as i cant upload here because posting msg from my cell phone. http://autoimage.cz/skoda/octaviaiirs.htm
kindly go to that page and browse for SKODA, on that, go on the lunk which labelled as something octavia IIrs, here is a car with red color. thats same as mine. the trunk opening is from back to the place near the antenna. Now suggest me, facing box up, how much loudness
I know lee that it will sound great in trunk. Buy If you have looked at the4 image, I dont have a lot of space. I have to travell around alot and cant afford to block the trunk. I just want to know that how much differene will be there if I place the box facing up behin rear seat after removing the deck rather palcing the box in trunk facing backward.
Thans juliob, If I install dynamat, what will be effect on bass? Please clearly mention. Will it stop rattling of trunk? Also, where to install the dynamat? I mean floor of trunk, lid, sides, what?? Thankyou
