sub box positioning ?

hey guys,

before i go out and build my box, i wanna know your opinions, between the seats, behind a seat ? only using a single ten, atm im gonna build the box for betweent he seats, i know a few guys have both so i was looking for comments on either, if i wanna change it i can always build another box, ill see how it goes, but yeh just a few suggestions, this is for an AU but if you have somethign else u can always comment.

also if you have a sub ox in the ute, how did you mount it so it wouldnt move ?

cheers guys

Re: sub box positioning ?

Are you building a sealed or ported enclosure ?.
Do you have the specs for internal box volume and tuning ?
If there was enough room , I'd like to try a 10 inch behind the seat ,
but firing sideways .
I think placing it in in the centre would limit access to storage behind the seats .
I recently fitted 7 x 10 kenwoods to replace the rears in my BA , but they still lack good bottom end . Probably the volume is too small for them to work
efficiently

cheers

Re: sub box positioning ?

i just put one in my AUII ute about a week ago.
the box was built to fit in between the seats which looks awesome but yeah it can be a pain in the ass where storage behind the seats is concerned! ...it's just fat enough to stop me from being able to reach behind the seats at all!
i actually haven't bolted my box down yet at all. it's heavy enough to stay there by itself - i s'pose it depends on how fast u wanna go around corners lol

there shud be a couple of pics of mine here: http://photobucket.com/albums/v321/marlin_girl/

Re: sub box positioning ?

I am currently building a 20litre box to suit the new flatish pioneer 12'' subs. it will fit easily behind the driver's seat. Be carpeted same colour as interior, possibly go a bit ricey and make the sides out of perspex and put a sound flashing neon inside, just because...

You've probably thought of it , but why not just slide the passenger seat forward a little and slip it in behind . You won't notice any difference in the bass level as long as you have a few inches gap between the seat and speaker .... but maybe the passenger's kidney's will get a pounding !!
But you probably want the WOW factor of having it visible

Cheers

Re: sub box positioning ?

I have a 12 inch ported sub between the seats and a 10 inch behind the drivers seat. It works a treat, no storage though as I have the amps mounted on the rear wall behind the passengers seat.
