Default Subs Inside ...

Since the nice weather is here, the subs must go back in.

Instead of the trunk, I was thinking of mounting them some where in the interior if it was physically possible.

Has anyone done this or thought of this?

I was think a custom enclosure in the middle of the rear seat on the floor or possible something in front in the same position(since i have an se with no center console on the floor)

I do not want to make kick panels because of bad luck with them in the past.

Anything that would be made could be fiberglasses and fabricated by me, I just need some ideas...

I also dont feel like butchering my rear deck.

Wow I have too many stipulations.

I ll take any ideas if you would

Thanks in advance

just leave the little rear seat to trunk pass through open, you will feel like the subs took a walk inside.

Agreed. Subs belong in the trunk for a reason. It'* just not practical to have them inside the car. Besides, put all that great trunk room to use!

yea I put subs in about a month ago and had the rear console up and one day I had some friends in the car and they pulled it down and there is a big change in the bass sound in your car. It sounds so much better in my car now, and I got 2 900 watt alpine type * subs and an orion 800 watt amp.

That song is ridiculously heavy with bass. However, there is one part of the song that goes too high, into the midbass region, so the sub won't play it.
