    i think i have a decent idea:



    that area to the right is what is available for the amps and sub right?

    Yup that it. I actually got the cabling tighter, so it will sit farther to the left. Here is what i want to do.

    it might be best to nail down the amp series your going to use, and get some exact measurements of what is available for a sub, and then go from there.

    Hello HijackZX1, If you are using a small sub in a large car you will need to load is so that it is facing rear aprox 6 to 8 inches from the rear hatch. Otherwise you will have a problem hearing it. If you face it side ways I would face it toward the Pass side from the drivers side panel and as close to the hatch as possible. You will not be able to calculate phasing so go with efficiency.

    Thanks whip..... Soundman98, i remember you mentioning shallow mount subs. Are they any good? If I use one of those I can rearrange everything and have a perfect fit. Do they need a large sub box like a standard sub?

    'good' is personal preference. i have not heard one that i was happy with, though some brands really only talked about on diymobile audio have had some good reviews from people that are always looking for devices with good sound quality.

    I mean it would be awesome, That would open up the size of the amps greatly! I could go with even medium or large size amps, all though Im going to look for meduim. It also means I could get a bigger sub speaker. A shallow mount 10 inch would fit perfect.

    I like the P3-shallow mount Rockford Fosgate Subs. I use the 10" in a .5 cu ft box and they sound assume. You also have to remember to give the sub at least a 1.5 Inch opening at the opening so the bass doesn't get muffled. If the Sub is down firing I usually use a piece of wood under the carpet at the support part of the box for a little extra space, It works wonders. On the top firing woofers Audioenhancers sells a sturdy chrome bar grill that stops the woofer from getting muffled. One more thing is that if you use the P3 shallow subs you need to give them around a week of break in time because they are tight.

    I notice on most installs the speaker is facing towards the left or the right. Would it affect sound to have it point up? The way my setup is, up is the only option. Also, with a sub box, is there any other area that has to be open, like to let air in and out?

    Any help would be appreciated.
    bass is omnidirectional so in theory you can face it in any direction, as long as the sub can load off a surface

    dschmittler is correct, as far as surround goes the sub is not included in any kind of delay so just load it so it can be heard dynamically, which will give you the most excitement from a movie. You can always turn bass down put you have a limit on how far you can turn it up. Meaning it's better to have over kill the straining the heck out of your equipment.
