subs in trunk. you can go small box on it and it will still sound good. but if you want loud you have to go big. i went so big that i had to remove my spare tire

You could always have a fiberglass box made to fit just behind your wheel well in the trunk. That would give you great sound qualities, slick look, and leave you with most of your trunk space intact. Anywhere that does custom audio should be able to work something out for you!

maybe. but i'm thinkin youd need to cut the foam out of the bottom the seat and build a box into it. cause other wise the foam is jam up against the metal of the car.

Yeah... There really isn't a whole lot of space under the rear seat.
Although, the Nissan GT-R has a center console instead of a middle seat in the back and there are a couple speakers mounted in there. I bet you could do something to that affect if you wanted too.

maybe a single 10 or 12 under the middle section since, if im not mistaken, theres no middle seat for our Koups

Honestly a sub that is cheap, and doesnt require much space at all, 1.25cu.ft. and hits real damn good, I have 2 of them and am hitting a 139db via TL, would be a 12" Lanzar MAX12D or MAX212D I forget which name they use but that sub pounds hard and doesnt require much space at all. There is this site I use, they have the best prices I have ever seen and carry seriously like every different brands of amps and subs and what not they have low end stuff and high end stuff and everything in between. I have dealt with them for about 5 years now and never once had a problem and recommend them to everyone because they have helped me a ton and everyone that has used them has never had a problem. PM me if you want their site, or email is usually how I do it cause their site they have been working on lately. and they carry everything too underglow, subs, amps, motor stuff.

No problem.
There is pretty much the only place I actually trust with a/v stuff online and trust their prices, they have RF subs for like half of what you see them in stores from and are legit too. If I ever had a problem with them, I would say it, but honestly I have ordered everything in my car from them and never once had a hiccup and have recommended easily hundreds of people to them too from different forums and what not but have never had anyone with a problem with them.
When I started with them I was hesitent but they put everything up there that you need to know. Basically order what you want and you're set, just make sure it is what you want cause if its already shipped which like I said I get my stuff in like a day then they cant cancel the order.
If one of the mods want, try to talk to them to see if they will give a discount for members of forteforums if their mentioned on the site or something. I can try to get a hold of one of the guys too if anyone wants.

Example of their prices cause I am looking at getting a Jensen UV10 7" indash, they want $275 for it shipped brand new. For a RF Punch P2002 amp, they want $160. bestbuy wants $200 + tax and gas cause its like a 30mi one way trip for me to bestbuy. so i mean they are real good prices and whatnot. again if the mods want ill look into getting a discount for the forum. What do you guys think??

I was always tinkering with the idea of making a custom box that would fit in the spare wheel well. It would be flush with the trunk and take the least amount of space. A amp could be put anywhere along the wheel well area. Only con to this would be the loss of a spare tire.

I also though about putting two 8" subs in the back where a traditional 6x9 speaker would go. Since our speakers are located in the rear passenger side doors this would work. I have seen it done on cardomain.com but not sure what type of car had it done. It looked really good. I am sure any custom shop could do this.

I attached pics of both of my ideas so you can see what I am talking about. I just pulled these off Google image search.

ordersup - I also used Lanzar back in the day and I have to agree. They pounded really hard. Never had a problem with them. Had two 15's with a Lanzar opti-drive amp. Good quality equipment and they didn't get enough credit. After that I went with HiFonics. Of course that was back in the day (early-late 90's). Not sure how popular they are now.

ecko yeah back in the day Lanzar was amazing, now they are still the same quality but with others coming out that are made specifically for SPL, you're right they don't get enough credit. Personally I have been using these 12s for over a year now and daily too, i hit daily probably 135 because I don't keep it all the way up, which would be 139 again all on a termlab so i mean a year of full abuse and not a single problem, no overheating, no distortion, nothing but great with these subs. especially for the deal bp customs autosport gave me on them there's no way anyone would complain.

got off the phone with them a couple of minutes ago and they are interested in being a vendor for us here and offering a discount for anyone on the forum too. forteforums get a hold of them so we can get discounts!!!! I talked to the owner over there, Chris, hes a real nice guy and has sponsorships too!! with the sponsorship they offer a real ddeeeeeeeepppp discount, so now I am officially sponsored by them, just waiting on the stickers to get in and the new season to start back up to help them how they helped me! these guys are awesome!
