Looking into building a custom fiberglass sub enclosure to put on the driver side rear of the hatch. It will require trimming or replacing the folding floor, but should make use of the space.

Anyone else done this?
Anyone running a single 10" in a sealed enclosure? How does it sound?

Thanks!

Hope you find some answers, i've tried looking it up before with no luck

Custom Sub Box


so i searched the forum alot, and searched the internet, but couldn't find any Custom sub boxes. Anyone here made or bought a Custom Subwoofer box/enclosure for the Koup. I was thinking of something to save space. Especially if its fiberglass and goes in the right part of the trunk? I am thinking of something like the ones below? So any one with them in a KOUP


On a Lexus IS with a 12" woofer




and
Honda Accord with a 10" woofer



and in a Jetta

Thanks Kiaforte2010, but I intend to build one.

I was wondering if anyone else has done one and also if anyone had run a single 10".

Best Buy screwed up a vehicle belonging to a friend of mine. I don't even buy wire from there.

Thanks. I was an installer A LONG time ago...the size of amps today blows my mind. LOL

Have you seen the spare tire well? That's begging for a 12" sub. It's DEEP. I am going to rethink this enclosure thing.

you could easily put 2 10's or 8's in there. 8's are getting a lot better in quality.
but good luck. wheel well box would be cool. better than mine(battery in there)

Thanks Noodile.

Justin, I am thinking that I will be able to keep the spare tire, move the tools and jack to the storage pocket, etc...or go the Hyundai route and put fix a flat with a 12V pump...

if you're gonna go that route, watch out cause i heard fix-a-flat destroys TPMS, so you're gonna need to get a new sensor after every flat

Yeah, I had wondered the same thing. The fix a flat folks claim to be sensor safe and will work with customers if the stuff kills a sensor.

The one time we used it on a focus, it didn't harm the sensor. Or it did and we don't know yet. Yikes...

That's what roadside is for... :)

since most flats are straight on the thread (best case scenario) buy a tire plug kit, keep a knife or scissors handy back there, and a pump... then you have nothing to worry about.
