Default Single sub installs

Noise levels at work have caused a OSHA recordable hearing loss and I don't need something that will blow out the windows 2 blocks over.

Looking to do a reasonable power single sub install.
10" or 12" in a small box as not to take up all of the trunk.

Need pics and box specs.

you could just get a 10 and build a sealed box in one corner of the trunk, and still keep the pass thru,

or get a 10" in a ported

I wanted to keep some of my trunk available. Also spare tire access is nice too.




As I mentioned spare tire access earlier, Also somewhat of a ghetto install.


.9 ft





I assume 900 watts RMS is still in reasonable power area.

my trunk is currently a construction zone but I run a Resonant Engineering SE12 in a 1.8 cu ft sealed box.. It can get downright silly but the SQ is simply amazing.

haha this is what my trunk looks like now.. Im working on some fiberglass for new door pods so the trunk is going to be on the back burner for a bit. But it will be full on install in the next weeks or so.

while on topic of boxes and fiberglass pods.... has anyone fiberglassed kicks? I saw Jachin'* pics of the wooden ones and those take up wayyy too much room.. just curious.

On topic - If you are looking for something simple that will get the job done circuit city has their alpine type E'* on clearance for very cheap... sure it'* type E... but on the other hand they are 25 bucks a pop for 12"* here right now...

ugh alpine type e'* are not worth it. they do not hit very well and distort like none other. i replaced on of my infinity perfects with an e while i sent one in for repair and yah the e was not even anywhere close to sounding clean. just thought i would let u know.

any decent ways to mount one or 2 ,8"-10" subs without resricting the rear seat armrest'* opening? I use that sometimes, and would like to still have access to it. Of course, I want decent sound too, otherwise, it'* not worth installing. I'm not interested in pissing off my neighbors, but i want it to sound like the cd intended. I'm not a bass *****, and I don't need to overcompensate for anything, by way of woofers.... lol

any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks, Sam

I've heard 2 12" E'* in a camry and it sounded decent for what they were.

Just thought I'd make a suggestion since they are 25 bucks.... atleast they will hold up and I'M COMPLETELY SURE they would do the job he is looking for.

now if he were looking to shake the block... i wouldn't rec. the type e'*. and another thing.... Type E and Perfects are in a totally different league... it'* like putting a Polk db against a 12" XXX... it doesn't compare.


I say check out the E'* worse that can happen is you get there and you demo them and are unsatisfied.

I have 2 Infinity 10s, and I was running only one for a while which was plenty powerful with 150WRMS running to it in a sealed 1cft enclosure. Something like this can be built in a relatively small space, and produce good sound quality without being rediculously loud.

This was my setup with my last subs...I haven't modified it for my new subs yet but I need to. Other than my poor method of mounting the boxes to the platform I personally loved how functional it was. 2 .75 cubic foot boxes, spare tire access without removing anything, and the pass through is still usable.





excuse the way the amp is held in, there are 4 screws that hold the board up but that wasn't enough and the trunk leaked into the amp and blew the subs before I got the L brackets mounted up.





just some ideas
