    hey guys, i was just thinking, i wanted to get an 8'' sub from jl and wanted to know if jl will just fit into the stock position , i know there is going to be some modification to make it fit, but i was thinking of dropping 2 8'' jl w3's in the position and mount the amp somewhere, could this be done? i want to have everything concealed as my last system was clearly visible and got jacked , also will these little 8'' produce noticable bass? i know there not going to be hardcore bass just looking for a little more thump then the bose

    theres a lot of members who have their sub enclosure where the spare used to be but dont still utilize the spare tire. it would save you some weight too.

    its a risk you take for not having the spare tire but i guess thats what free roadside assistance is for.

    I have a pioneer slimline 10" in a custom enclosure in the spare. A normal sub wont fit in the tire, but if you take it out, an enclosure can be made in the recess to fit 2 10s or probably 12s.

    I thought about doing that when i first bought my car but there's i found it hard to make the JLs fit into the factory sub box. I know if you want it bad enough anything can be done but i don't think its worth the trouble. The factory box was specially designed to get maximum performance out of what little space it has. Its a very tight fit and is ported to more easily move air. It looked really simple when i first took it out but when i took it apart it actually surprised me with how much thought that they put into it.

    If you want to go with a stealth look, I've seen a lot of people build custom boxes in there spare tire wells. They did a cut-out on the floor and put in a speaker grille for the bass to get out. Another way to do it would be building a box off to the side and try your best to blend it in with the rest of the trunk. You can get a lot of Stealthy speaker box ideas from JL.

    I've had a lot of cars get broken into in the past so i know how it feels. My car never parks outside anywhere over night now and i don't take it to any risky places. It sucks but better safe then sorry.

    imotion , thats a crazy set up you have there, i wanted to maybe put an enclosure on the side but again its visible and i dont want anybody knowing i have a system back there, i was thinking of doing it in side the rear wheel well as well , how much would something like that cost around, i know depending on what sub just a ball park price, to get something custom done, 2 10''s with an amp , is it hard? and is it diy?
