Hello, Ihave been planning this for quite sometime-even before I bought the car. The car that this box will go into is a 1998 VW Golf 4 door hatchback.
I am going to be using one 12" sub- I have a 12 inch alpine type S, but I might sell it and the amp( alpine MRD-m301) and buy a type r instead...not sure yet.
but to the box, more on the system later.
drawing I did in photoshop.

second mock up made to fit car:

and the car in question:

now about the system:
the car came with alpine type s 6.5s in the front doors, and type s 6.5 components in the rears- and a 12" type s sub powered by the mrd-301.
as I said, I might sell the amp and the sub and get the type-r, any thoughts? ( Iwould purchase either the new vpower or the v12 605)
this will all be run off of the Pioneer 5700dvd cd/dvd receiver.
any thoughts on the box, or the rest of the system?

Cool Idea man, what size do you plan on making the box. Volume f3 is a big thing to look into so try and work that into the desine. And go with the type R. Way cool idea. Keep posted on progress
I love custom audio like a fat kid loves cake!

Visually, the first one is much nicer, I would suggest tilting the sub so it faces the back more, I think it would look nicer and have more impact when viewed from behind. Practically, the second .It would give you more room for storage

First option looks sweet. Ya keeping in mind the air mass needed for that sub but would be nice looking. Post some progress pics once you begin and good ideas.

I am running 2 Type Rs off of an Audiobahn 8002T@ 1 ohm. Having problems w/amp overheating and going into protection(not 1 ohm stable, no guts no glory) They are in 2 sep. FG enclosures@ 1.66quft . Can pound them for about 20 min before overheating but hit 162.3db in Dec. at Music in Motion "Pounders" here in Illinois. Nice subs, have taken hell from me.
Mazda 323 GTX +
330 lbs. glass +
4, 5 gallon buckets resin +
1600w RMS @ 1ohm = 162.3db

this, as you can see is going to go behnd the front seats, molded right off the center console.

anyone attempted one liek this?
Idont think this one will be too hard, just take the housing off the monitor, suspend it out, and sstretch fleece or somethign over it, maybe bake a mdf frame first.
