    i have a w7 and am here to tell you there is not a box on the planet that will hold it without losing your t top storage.....lose the t top rack or get a box with not enough airspace from subthump. the speaker calls for 1.25 cubes sealed and 1.5 cube ported. subthump only offers a sealed box and is only 1 cube after mounting the sub n the box. i built a box to spec and this thing is crazy for 1 sub

    I have no pics but me and a friend of mine put a 12" MTX in his 2001 camaro.
    were making a special box for him. its will angle down from the back of the seat to the t-top storage area. he can still have the t-top storage bay and the separator in there too. For two 12"s i would recommend making a custom box that takes up the entire shelf....have it angled parallel with the back glass (shouldnt take up too much rearview) cut holes as far as possible to the sides...leaving room in the middle for the amp and compasitor.
    Right now im looking at 2 10"s for mine. im thinking memphis tho because thats what i have for door speakers...ill get some pics up here when (and if) i get them done.

    yeah i woul suggest MTX, Memphis, or Alpine for subs.
    as for door speakers...i looked at all kinds...Alpine and Memphis were the only kinds i liked...others didnt have the pure good sound. yes memphis door speakers dont have the bass that most have...but they are louder and better quality IMO

    Have you looked at the ID-IDQ 10v.3, ID-IDMAX 10v.3, or the Fi-Q 10 ?

    I would suggest not putting it in the cubby. Its a good spot for space conserving reasons but it made my friend's camaros tail lights raddle a whole lot worse down there. Not to mention that i felt that IMO is didnt sound as good and i didn feel the bass as much either. But it is a small car so a 12 tucked away down there would get the job done. Bu as for that quality great sound...your going to have to say good bye to the truck shelf or the t-top storage compartment

    I was worried having the speaker facing to the passenger side of the trunk wouldnt be good for quality.

    The W6 would be the better choice for a stealth box(still over-priced though), and IMO the W7 is a good sub, but it's way over-priced for what it offers!

    What is it you're really want from you sub system?

    Overall just really good quality. I dont care how loud i bump just want crisp clear sound n to bump a little. It looks like i have to give up my ttop storage for optimum sound.I wanted it to look clean thats why i wanted to put a sub in the cubby.JL is overpriced but isnt the quality one of the best right now.I talk to a guy n he told me the kicker vr shallow mount

    Do not go with shallows. They do not hit hard at all. Your door speakers would hit harder than shallows would. Yeah they save space but i would think that you would be disappointed. I know you dont care about bumping loud but their sound sucks just as bad.

    You'll still get good bass from a (DR.Side) stealth enclosure, the 10-W6, ID-IDQ10v.3, and Fi-Q10(best) will all sound great in one since their designed to work good in really small enclosure, and so will many other subs. Another option if you're willing to give up the spare-tire area and go with a custom fiberglass enclosure you can get 1.5-2 cu.ft. of air space for a 10" or 12" sub and optimize you bass all without giving up the storage well. IMO, Kicker subs are far from a accurate sounding sub, and a large enclosure in the rear well will only make the biggest difference if you run your sub/s in a low tuned ported enclosure. the only real gain from a large seal well enclosure is from adding a 2nd sub, you'll gain little low bass from the increase air space the subs are in.

    My spare tire is removed already but i cant imagine. i would have to cut the plastic and put the enclosure there is that right? i meant to ask u before what brand are ID-IDQ10v.3, and Fi-Q10.Yah i know kicker vr probably suck. i dont want a shallow mount at all. The box at hifisound connection read drivers side enclosure for $79.99 w/ .75 sq ft.if thats right will i be able to fit a 10w6 it didnt say anything about the depth.

    I run two JL 10w3 in the hatch one on the drivers side in the cubby and one in the passenger side were the spare tire went I made my own fiber glass boxes with mdf fronts (wont do that again the box took forever to make and cost about 70$ each in material). I mounted one amps on a rack under the passenger side sub (in the space were the tire would sit into) and one were the factory amp went. I didnít have to cut the plastic on the pass side yet... sounds great with out cutting you just canít see the speaker. Which is what I wanted everything is hidden looks factory except for the head unit and JL sub flush in the drivers side. The system doesnít rattle the windows on houses ĺ of a mile out but itís CLEAR enough to make your ears feel like they might bleed and drums rupture from the change in cabin pressure when the subs fire
    Its alittle work to mount the amps but worth it for the clean look.... just my 2 cents
