smart place for sub in the trunk?
 
hey guys, first off, i love my focus, just got it a couple months back. anyway i miss my sub and i am wondering if theres a way to get a sub in there without using too much space? i have a 10 inch rockfod P3. i was thinking of making a box and putting in on the side right behind the taillights because there is a little gap and some space there, though im not sure itd be enough space to have enough air for the sub to hit right. i also remembered that some focus's have a sub in the sidewall of the trunk beneath the carpet from the factory. i have an 09 SE, is it possible for me to put my sub directly on the metal (mine didnt have a sub from the factory) or is that just going to sound atrocious?

any ideas? i like my trunk space but want a sub back. or am i going to have to pick one or another?

You can fiberglass an enclosure on either side of the trunk.

wouldnt a fiberglass enclosure be expensive to make? im only a poor college kid haha.

would it sound as good as a normal ported box?

Here is what i'm doing in my mk1.

it's going to sit behind the passenger taillight and run right up against the wheel well using a kappa 100.9w. Will be .75 cu ft (recommended size) I wanted to keep the driver side clear cause i fit snowboards in there and that's the side the big section of seats folds down. there was even more room over there. I can't imagine it's much different in a mk2. Only cost me about 50$ in materials. though you will need access to:
A saw, drill, and tape measure. I had plenty of scrap left over from 2 2x4 sheets of this so you could make it bigger as well.

Are you after SPL or, SQ?

fonzogt25 04-21-2013 02:57 PM

is it possible for you to post a pic in here after your box is made or to send it to me?

and i dont know what you mean by SPL or SQ

freemind 04-21-2013 05:01 PM

SPL(sound pressure level)=LOUD boomy bass.

SQ(sound quality)=detailed smooth bass.

fonzogt25 04-22-2013 11:18 PM

oh ok i gotcha. well i have only a 250 RMS amp. id like the bass to hit clean but give a nice bump. and i dont want a loud drone like a bass guitar but have it hit cleanerr like a bass drum. so im assuming that would be SQ
