Default Trunk Blue prints

okie dokie, so later in the year i hope to install the two twelves and one fifteen subwoofer collection i have, i want to build a custom box, which i will desighn in my autocad program, unfortunately, i dont have a proper layout of the trunk, the curves and such would be troublesome in calculating so i was wandering if ne one could send me a diagram of the trunk that has been dimensioned, also, is ther a way that i could take out my rear dash in order to assemble a fiited box in the trunk?

A little off-topic but just my .02, with that set-up I would make boxes on the sides for the 12'*(one behind each wheel well) and put the 15 in the spare tire well and just build a nice rack for the amps in the rear part of the trunk. Sorry its not what you were looking for but I think that would be my preferred route. Anyway good luck can't wait to see some pics!

I haven't seen anyone with a dimensionalized drawing of the trunk .. who knows..it might be in the library. Dimensions and measuring points do exist for body shops to use when fixing cars.

As for the back deck..you can take the top off it which is only a thick cardboards and you are still left with a welded in structural shelf. I'd doubt there is any way to remove it or much past the back seat to fit things in.

I am just shooting this out there why are you going with different size drivers(subs), the will more then likely cancel each other out, if you have checked on it some and have a idea love to hear it.

Well 2 12 and a 15 will not soudn great together either one or the other, The 2 12 has more con space and should be able to more then rock inside the car. But a box for 1 15 is going to be easier to build, that is a close call on that, so pic one and rock out.

I agree, chose one or the other. MDF is cheap, you could easily build boxes for both and see which sounds better to you.

The 12"* will have more cone area but also will have more motor force per cone area vs the 15 which has less motor for the amount of cone area.

If you want a 3D drawing of the trunk break out the tape measure and a pad of paper and start measuring. Shouldn't be that hard to make in any cad program
