2005 ZX3 sub enclosure

Any recommendations between the MTX Thunderform or the Q-Logic sub enclosure for an '05 ZX3 SES? I need to keep the cargo space maximized as much as possible.

I'd definitely recommend the MTX Thunderform. Here's a picture of my old setup, still plenty of room for cargo.

i don't know how deep the woofer is but you can make the enclosure as wide as the car but not to deep, just enough room for the woofer to fit!

like mine:



2 pioneers: 400watt rms and 800 peak and still enought space for 2 crates of beer! :D
you don't need more ;) :D

Dude, subthump.com all the way. Its the best of every world. Custom fitting, saves you space, and all wood enclosure. Everyone one here that has one, loves it.

And while you're at it, get the amp rack for the passenger side. Lets you mount your amp cleanly on the passenger side, and only takes about 2" of width out of the cargo area (plus the thinkness of the amp).

These pictures are old, so you don't see the amp rack. I'll see if I can find some pictures of mine with the rack in there.

Thanks for the responses. I need the ability to put the seat down, so a set up like Focuskn has - although it look great - will not work. FocusontheZX - that setup might work.

Here are some more pictures with the amp rack. Sorry they are blurry, crappy cell pictures, but it gives you the idea. I'm a mobile DJ, so I need to be able to fold the seats down to. I can get a sound system, mixer, stands, and lights all in the back of the car. Enough gear to do a wedding. And I've got a hitch for a trailer when need be, so if you need space, this is a great solution.




And now I have the end caps to the kicker amp, so NO WIRES :)

you can always snag an audiophile box.. they can only fit a 10" sub max, but they are definitely the smallest boxes.

Sorry currently subthump doesn't make an enclosure or rack for a sedan, and unless you had 5+ people who wanted to pre-order them, and one of you would be willing to donate your car for a few days, they probably won't be coming out with one.

Do you know where I can find this besides a junkyard?
