I plan to put two 8" subs in the back behind the seats. I will fasten plywood across the holes for the standard Bose subs and mount the 8"s in that. If you look around Google there is a detail description of the mounting of two 8"s in this manner.

However, I have got my front Focal components working so well, i don't feel the need to rush. If I can find it again I will post a link for you.

Hi,

no issue with the gas tank, since that is where the factory-option BOSE soundystem speakers are as well.

see the pics in this

to get the idea... you can purchase frames from MB, cut the upholstery up for the speakers, the holes in the chassis should be already there, under the carpet / upholstery.

OR;

1. lift up (comes out without tools) the forward corners of passenger footwell carpet...
2. there is a steel frame held together with a couple of plastic nuts.
3. disassemble that part, you don't need it
4. install this kind of active woofer into that space; no additional amplifier required!
5. you can route the signal wires veeery easily without tools, power from cigarette lighter cord, is plenty enough.

I built a fiberglass/MDF combo box that let me keep my spare and still have a nice 10" Infiniti Kappa Perfect 10.1 sub.

These cars sound more like a hatchback than a sedan - I can clearly hear the fan on my amp if the car isn't running. You can run just about any sub in the trunk and hear it just fine. An amplified Bazooka would probably be great back there and easily removable for times when you need more room.

Yep, that is true. Best place for sub is the spare tyre compartment in the back. I was actually surprised how clearly every sound comes through when I first time had something rolling loose in the trunk...

However I placed my sub in the passenger footwell only because I wanted to maximise the available trunk space - I have no 2nd car and she is my daily driver, through the winter & summer... ah how I love this car! :biglaugh:
