I am pretty new to the car modification scene, and had a question that might be really stupid, but then again I don't know much about car audio. I own a 2008 WK and noticed that in the trunk on the ceiling there is a fairly deep groove from about halfway back in the trunk to above the rear seat head-pieces. I am fairly interested in adding a subwoofer to the vehicle, and noticed that an Earthquake SWS 8" or 10" in its smallest possible box (11"x11"x3" for the 8" sub) would fit well in this groove (i dont even think it would even block vision out of the rearview mirror at all).
Is it possible to mount a subwoofer the ceiling of a vehicle and get good sound? Would it be possible to mount this subwoofer in such a way? I wouldnt be worried about such a tricky mounting option if I didnt routinely use up just about all my trunk space.
I really appreciate any response. Again, my knowledge of audio electronics is limited, but I do know when I'd like to get a little deeper and better sound out of my system. Thanks for your time.
Ya, in a fully enclosed vehicle this is possible. You'll probably want it to point toward the rear glass still though (unless this spot is WAY back in the rear). Firing direction can greatly change the results. But I doubt you'll really get a 3" deep box (don't forget material and face depth...) up there without blocking your view... but...
If you can't take a nano-second to press shift/period/etc. and make proper sentences and paragraphs, I don't know if I can take a few minutes to respond to your topics... It doesn't have to be perfect by any means, but a little effort goes a long way.
pnarkiew, did you already install your sub? I'm trying to add a sub as well, but like you, routinely use the entire cargo space, rear seats folded down and everything. Just trying to find out what some other solutions are.
I'm looking at using two 6.5" Kickers (10CVT654) in a 4" x 15" x 24" box on the left side of the cargo space. This would only take up 96 sq inches of floor space in the cargo area and the box would only protrude 4" toward the center of the cargo area from the left quarter paneling.
I ended up not putting the sub in, but put some Vision X LED Xmitter bars on my yakima roof basket instead =D I just wasnt willing to give up any space, so i guess adding a sub wasnt for me. If i woulda done anything though i probably woulda gone with the stealthbox.
