Default BE amp/sub question

Hi,

I'm trying to figure out an easy way to mount a sub-box in the trunk of a 2002 Legacy Sedan. I pulled the box out of my old corolla wagon, but I can't seem to find a good place to put it in the Legacy (angled box, slammed right up against the rear seats under the removable shelf).

Has anyone run into this problem? any advice? looking into the trunk I can't really see an obvious out-of-the-way place to put it.

Thanks in advance!

what shape is the box? self tappers and l-brackets usually do the trick in a pinch

Its mostly a cube, but the face with the hole cut out it at about a 20 degree angle. Kinda trapezoidal from the side.

I have no reservations about drilling into his trunk. (he might not like the glint in my eyes when I pick up a Makita, however ) The issue we're trying to figure out is where, since there's not very many good mounting positions.

We may have to go with a new box, but do any of you BE guys have trunk setups you can describe or post pics of? (preferably economical ones, not full on FG boot builds)

im doing some fiberglass enclosures for my 4 10's so i guess i dont qualify, but when i had a box i just stuck in the middle up against the seat back, and it was heavy enough to stay put.

I was thinking for a 2000 BE the same design but put the sub on the flat side and push the angled side against the seat back. I was gonna do that with two sepparate boxes on either side of the ski pass-through. Hope this idea helps.

just build a new box!!!! chances are that if you got the box pre made its just made out of 5/8 particle or even 1/2 inch! Go pay the 15 bucks or so, get a sheet of 5/8 MDF (medium density fiber board) And design the box the way you want it!!!.... to build your box, you have to know relatively litttle.... can you calculate the volume of a cube, or a triangel??? if you can then you can quite easily build a great box that will more than likely out preform the one you currently have!.... PLUS you can set it up for YOUR speakers! All different speakers have different air space requirements (most often in ft. cubed) So if if build a box to fit your speakers, it will not only be better quality with better wood, but it will preform better becasue it is tailored to your subs!!... If youd like some help send me a PM with the type of speakers you have, how many and hwat you are looking to get out of them... always glad to help

Thanks for the ideas guys.

TGycageL0002: Well, we were trying to be lazy about it. We knew what we needed to do, but we were just looking for an easier way to do it

Default an idea to consider

One option you might consider ... give up your spare and build a box for the sub that fits where the spare goes ....

My son did this on his M3 ... and I think one of our legacy members has done this as well ...
