    Subwoofer fitted :D

    I connected an amp and a 12" subwoofer to my cd70 today. It sounds amazing!

    The only problem is that the box is pretty big and i cant fold the seats up in the back which is the whole point of a 7 seater in the first place.

    Is it possible to get a box that could fit behind the seats at the back when they are folded up? or is the gap too small?

    I could make a box myself, but i dont really have the time now. I would rather go and buy and just simply put it in.

    Thanks

    I used to have a single 12" sub in the boot that fitted behind the rear seats like so:



    Now I've put a 12" into each side of the boot:




    Seats go up and down as designed in both cases.

    The 1st one came like that, it's sloped at the back which fits the slant on the rear seats really well.
    The 2nd one I did myself, took the sides out, attached a mdf frame for the speakers to screw into and covered the sides in acoustic carpet.
    Unfortunatley I didn't seal them and the speakers you see didn't go to well at high volume.
    I've now got a couple of Pioneer free air speakers which will hopefully respond a lot better when I get them in.

    manchester.. but i dont mind traveling down to you?

    How many watts isit? and also i have a zaf B and i think the space behind the back seats is slightly slightly smaller than the zaf A. Is it a really tight fit or is there a little bit of space left over when its in?

    Here's the info from the box it was in:


    It's a snug fit but it's not touching the rear door.
