|skeletor212||i am trying to figure out how to build a custom sub 12inch box for my focus hatch like one speaker on each side so i still have enough room in my trunk any ideas?|

|skeletor212||hey how did you build this box?|

yeah, i am wanting space because... this...
is TOO DAMN HEAVY!!!
but man, does it hit hard as ! (shameless plug for my friend's job.... nevermind.. got edited..)

I was thinking about doing that...... creating 1 or 2 MDF 3/4'' spacers, I gotta measure the width of the internals for the sub though and see if it will fit in an 8'' hole. It's a prety beefy sub I got... rated to 800w RMS lol!
Is that necessary? definitely not.... why am I doing it? Because I can (most likely) lol!
Anyone have any other suggestions?
Also, does anyone know how much air space the stock box has?

I just had a MDF spacer made up at a local shop, (maybe 3/4" thick if I recall) and I run a normal sized 8" sub. I think I have the shallower box also.
I think that how-to for the 10" sub used a 10" diameter MDF spacer, and they clearanced the box where needed.

|SvviftSVT||I'm about to be trying the same thing. I got a shallow mount kenwood coming. I think I have the shallower box. Not afraid to mod it. I read somewhere that you can heat up the plastic and "push" it ut some for more clearance|

|Jon_SVT||Anyone know of an easy way to fit a 10'' into the stock SVT enclosure? The stock enclosure fits an 8'' iirc..... Any manufacturers make adapters or something? Time to start googling!|

I don't know the mounting depth of the stock box, but if this will fit, it would work nicely. Mounting depth is 3 5/8''.
Dual 8 ohm voice coils mean a 4 ohm load on the amp, which is what you need if the stock sub is 4 ohms. I doubt the stock amp would be stable at 2 ohms, and it wouldn't make any power at 8 ohms, so four is what to shoot for, assuming that is what was stock.
This would work too, but it's mounting depth is a little deeper, but it also handles more power -- although if you are staying with the stock amp, you probably don't really need to worry at all.
They also make a low profile sub, but it's more money, and wouldn't really work with a stock amp, as it will end up with either a 2 or 8 ohm load, depending on how you wire it (it's a dual 4 ohm sub).
It probably sounds like I'm a Dayton Audio rep or something, but I'm not. I've just had good experiences with their products. Partsexpress offers other brands too, but for the money, I think the Dayton stuff would work nicely.

Outside of that, the Parts Express idea is a great idea.
