    ooo 8 inch subs in front door card

    As the title says, i was lookin on caraudiocentre.com and seen some 8 inch woofers, im in the process of saving for some door speakers and just thought theese would be awesome. Do you think it would be possible? and i dont want to mod the door cards too much.

    Yep it would be possible, probably have to put them in the opposite corner to where the original speaker is, then run a wire from an amp into the door to power it. it takes time but not rocket science, i have managed to fit some extra components in that space.

    you will have to cut your door card and remove the foam from the inside.

    I'm going to be attempting this task shortly, with a set of JL 8" subs...

    Like Pete said, it is possible, but there's a fair amount of butchering needed!

    However, I'm planning to mount mine in the original location, but in a custom pod/doorcard... I may have to sacrifice a bit of leg room though! LOL

    No pics until its all completed! (if I ever get round to it! ha ha)

    you can get it looking smart, just take care when you are cutting, i will try and get some pics of my extra speakers up so you can have an idea of what it is like.

    Maybe not quite the same as what you want but here's my 8" sub and comps in my mk2. Very happy with the sound produced a I've now freed up a load of boot space
