thinking between the seats, and a little up on to the rear deck.

he has a rollbar and a glass rear window (converable), the trunk is not connected to the pass compartment so it cant go there (unless you ride in the trunk).

he dosnt want it over powering, just a little thump, he will be running door speakers (jl audio 2 ways) and tweets that I will surpise him with . and granted its a small car so not much is needed. he was looking at bass tubes but I think I talked him out of that. the tube would take up a lot of room compared to a small box (glassed in). Imho

is like 1 cuft to small for an 8 "

dont have a sub picked out yet so its all up to what I tell him to get. wants to keep it on the cheaper side, he is scared cause its a convet and dont want high dollar sittin in the open.

was throwing around the : kicker 19cvt654 compvt shollow mount 6.5

Default I know it's not a Viper but...

I would suggest 6.5" kicker subs and try to mimic the sub enclosure of a Dodge Viper.

Also I installed bass shakers in a Viper once. They did very well.

thinkin sealed but its not in stone. budget ? um .... prob less the $200 for sub and small amp. i will do the install for him pretty cheap. he knows a lot of people and i can get some other work from this. he is a member of a miata club so i might be asked to redo it in other cars . i have all the materials and it wont take much any way.

so i think we are going with a kicker 6.5" sub, between the seats transfering on to the rear deck and blending into the roll bar. working on a trade for a small amp for him right now.

HERE IS WHAT I AM WORKING WITH

SUB WILL GO BETWEEN SEATS ON AN ANGLE NO HIGHER THEM ROLLBAR



VIEW DOWN FROM REAR OF CAR ROLL BAR IS JUST AT BOTTOM OF PIC, CANT GO OUT TO FAR CAUSE THE KEY LOCK FOR THE CONSOLE IS THERE (TRYING TO KEEP THAT)
