EA Sub - best way to fit

Hi guys,

I want to put a 10" or 12" sub into my EA Ghia Sedan, no cutting the parcel shelf, and not much loss of boot space, and have split fold rear seat still functional, at least the larger side still able to fold down and clear.

So any bright ideas people, or am I just dreaming, and will be going alone in this idea.

While that is a very nice setup, I dont want to have the subs facing back into the boot or behind the seat, I fail to see how you would get the true sub sound, and not just hear doof doof from the boot, I want my system for me, not for everyone to go oh wow he has a sub, or have to have the seats down to hear them properly.

I also want to be able to use the split fold seat at the drop of a hat, and not have to plan to remove my subs before hand.

I will work on some designs and ideas, and post them when I get a chance.

If anyone else has any ideas or opinions please do post them, the more info I have the better the decision I hope :0)

mabey designg a fiberglass enclosure on the RHS of the boot behind the tail light. Fire it accross the otherside of the boot. Should load quite well, and not be intrusive upon boot space.

Right where I have my 10 disc stacker, well guess I can always move that.

This is how mine was UNTIL a month ago when i ripped it all out in preparation for the drag meet on sunday
The subs were facing the cabin, inwards.

Now i've just loosely thrown my sub box in again with wires everywhere and have noticed that the BEST bass is when you put the box towards the rear of the boot (subs facing inwards) and a port hole is close to a surrounding panel!

Don't think i can be stuff fitting it all back how the pic was.. I'm thikning of maybe a nice custom job.. we'll see

Honestly though i heard no real difference whether facing out or in.

I thought they actually sounded louder facing out.

I dunno, it seems noone can conclusively come up with a straight answer
