Default 4 door trunk car - cant use trunk ...

yeah - I got a 4 door 1972 plymouth valiant.
the trunk is full of hydraulic pumps / group 31 batterys - solenoids / wiring / hydraulic hoses / ext...

I had made this little box here to hold a pair of re x8"s
and was dissapointed with them after having a re sx 18" in my vette
rear hatch it was brutal to say the least.

please advise

trunk looks like this:



old box looked like this with the 8s in it



rear deck is only about 8.5" across - I cut out the center to fit a selenium 8w4p on midbass duty.. I actually like it. kicker ds 6930 on rear fill.



so the pair of 8s that I had in there sucked.
im putting the re sx 18" back in and running it off about 1300w
my last box I had it in the vette was in the rear cargo / hatch area sub was in 5.0 cubes net ported @ 35 and it slammed... but I always wondered how it would sound in 6 or 7 cubes ported @ 34

fast foward to now...
the rear seats are taken out of my lowrider. - the carpet is ripped up
and ive taken measurments after measurments back there trying to figure out if I can build a box out of fiberglass and mdf to mold to where the seats were - and hold the 18 in the center - but still allow some smaller frame human beings to be able to sit on the box back there
because
it would be stupid to take the back seats out of a 4 door car
right ?

so now my delema is
do I keep the 18 in the center of the seats ? or do I off set it to one side so there can be seating for 1 in the back comftorbly
and
do I put the port facing up to the roof coming up by the back deck
or
do I put the port coming out the bottom firing twards the backs of the front seats - so if some one sitting back there the port would breathe on to the backs of their leg down by the shoes.

im a take a pix real quick of the car now stripped down back there.

I used the rf box site to get a rough idea of the sq ft I can build back there - and came up with 6.89 cubes but then take away for port and disp. and some wood rod bracing....

Well you have a choice to make, reminds me back in the day, Buick Regal, or a Cutlass Supreme had plenty of space for a nice setup with (4) 12s or (2) 15s sealed, but put 2 or 4 pumps back there, and (8) batteries across the trunk and all that space is gone, just highs in those cars lol.

Getting back on subject, if you were happy with the 18 in the back without the seat, I say do that, maybe even run a pair since you got the room. It would sound best to seal off the area behind the rear seat and under the deck so you can get the pressure inside the car, not leaking back into the trunk.

Regardless, cool car man, love lowriders, and good luck.

Maybe you should try different 8"s in a better box. Are you god at fabricating? If so try doing a pair of buckets and a box between them.

trunk is muraled skeleton dj scratching on pair of turn tables - I realley like how he is reaching across the pattern with his arm to the other pattern. never seen any other low low with paint like this...


but back to the topic of stereo in this car -
I just took some pix of the car in the garage with ( oops ! ) I threw in a ghetto ass box - first box I ever built - with a pa speaker in it - just to see how a 18" would sound in the car. even tho its a pa speaker ( jbl 2043g ) it plays low and loud off little power. 350w rms getts insanely loud with this speakers crazy high spl rating.

so after I drove aorund a fiew days with that ghetto ass thing in the back I realized how sorry that little pair of re8" were and that there is no substute for big cone woofers making deep low bass.

pix in a minute - my computer is downloading decaf's zip 15 file lol
gota get that music ya know !!
