I wanna put some subs in the trunk of my SX. But, I need to leave room in the trunk and be able to use my folding seats to store my snowboard. i'm afraid the usual sub boxes would take up too much space and limit my use of the fold down seats. I'm considering getting custom molded fiberglass enclosures that fit behind the wheel wells. These are more expensive but I think it's worth it. What do you guys think? Has anyone done this in their car?

Also, should i put in 10's or 12's?

if you can afford it and are going for quality instead of just straight up loud i would say go for it. and if you have the time and patience you can make the enclosure yourself.
and 10's if your going behind the wheel wells

I did a custom fiberglass setup in my wrx. I used one 1500w 12" kicker cvx. All you need is one!! Its really not hard to do...just time consuming and dirty. You can get all your supplies at walmart. Then go to a fiberic store to find the carpet to cover it. Search you tube for ideas and knowledge.

I decided I'm gonna put an Infinity Kappa 120.9 in a homemade box powered by an EFX 500 watt amp. Itsjoebro-Is rattling a problem in the Forte? Even without the sub sometimes I can hear a little bit of rattle. Does this get worse with the sub?
