Why not put an 8 or 10 in the side of the trunk? like over on the drivers' side behind the wheel...

I found some 6" subwoofers that are used for home audio. It would be possible to use those and build a box for them.. Or just use some 6x9'* and set them on the subwoofer output on my headunit. Either way would work probably. I am thinking that I could possibly install some 4x6" plate speakers (since I already own them from my old car) in my C pillar since they are huge on my car for some rear fill. I think that kicker makes some 6x9" components so the woofer from those components would probably be the best for setting on "subwoofer" output from my h/u. I have Jensen'* that I ran in my LeSabre for over a year playing only 50HZ tones and below and they were really impressive. They put out awesome bass for only 6x9'*.

This is something that I had in mind:

Quote:
Amazing bass in a compact package! This one-of-a-kind 6-1/2" subwoofer has an impressive 11.5 mm of Xmax. A wide roll surround, raised flat spider, and large 1-1/2" 4-layer voice coil ensure impressive bass performance and high power handling. The vented pole and vented spider allow good airflow around the coil to improve heat dissipation and reduce compression. The compact neodymium motor structure saves valuable enclosure space while also allowing closer-than-normal placement to CRT'*. The ultimate multimedia subwoofer driver!

Specifications: Power Handling: 60 watts RMS/120 watts max *VCdia: 1-1/2" *Znom: 4 ohms *Re: 3.6 ohms *Frequency range: 35-800 Hz *Fs: 35 Hz *SPL: 83 dB 1W/1m *Vas: .52 cu.ft. *Qms: 2.46 *Qes: .43 *Qts: .37 *Xmax 11.5 mm *Dimensions: A: 7", B: 5-1/2", C: 3-5/8"

That would probably sound good. I dont know how it would respond in a car environment though. I am betting that they would go lower than a 6x9, and if you build the right box they could be fairly loud. You will need a seperate amp to run them of course. Try building a sealed box for one and see how it sounds. A 1 cu.ft. box lined with insulation should work. The smaller the box the tighter the midbass but it wont go as low. vice versa for a larger box, smoother response and lower, but not as much midbass. Definately give it a shot.
