I think Alex did this. I'm actually planning on doing the same. I've got 4 10's in the back, but I don't really have any midbass so I was thinking an 8 on each side would do nicely.

sorry I can't help more.. I'm sure someone else will chime in soon enough.

I think a good set of 6.5" midbass drivers up front would be more satisfying. You could have midbass in the factory door locations and then a mid/tweet component package in kick pods.

No, don't listen to him. That's a great idea. I like my bass coming from the rear. Music was made with that in mind. I also will be looking into running sealed enclosures in the sides of the back seats. I think that I will do that first because I want a clean bass, not a boomy bass. I installed many different setups and from my experience you will want to build a sealed enclosure, preferably done by a pro, made out of fiberglass. Fill about half with pillow filler or fiberglass to cancel out the waves created from when the speaker moves back. Use a bandpass crossover set to something like 100Hz to 250Hz or even lower. All depends on what your mids and subs can do. Good Luck

Dan E did this install and write-up. I also did a similar procedure, but used a little more volume and kept the stock fabric interior pieces for a pure stealth look. I put a JL 8W6 in each side and I am quite pleased with the way it turned out. I need to dynamat the interior panels some more, but it sounds quite good, and I have my entire trunk back.

That is an awsome idea. How big of a woofer do tou think cold be squeezed in there. I was looking at getting a set of 10" B.A.s. do you think I could fit those in there.

Hey AaronB, I dropped you an e-mail to the one listed in your profile. I had a few questions about your install.

Thanks

Thats a really cool idea; I can't believe I never noticed that on Dan's site. I guess I have a new project to start. I've gotta see what kind of air volume is in there and see if I can get some tens to go in there =).
