Where To Put My Subs?

Looking for mounting options for my subs. Many of you I see, just place the box in the very back. That is a good option, but for me, it wont really work. I do alot of stuff on the fly, and I'm usually the DD for many events. That being said, I will most likely use my back seats alot. I dont want the hassel of having to remove them all the time, or leaving them some where. My buddy has a slim box, but they just dont sound good. So I've seen it done before, but cant seem to find any info on it.

I know its custom and alot of work but w/e. I've seen people mount their subs in the back, cut into the side panels. Anyone ever done this?

Pics Please.....

I haven't checked yet but someone mentioned that the rear plastic wells might have enough space to put a sub in if you don't have one of the features, maybe the rear air system or something. You could open all those panels up and look in there. That may be where I stick a sub/amp combo.

I think your options are going to be pretty limited, especially if you want something that sounds good. Your best bet may be a bazooka tube or something with the sub/amp built into one unit. Depending on how it's wired, it should be easy to remove.

Slim or truck boxes can sound fine. You just need to buy the appropriate sub for the appropriate enclosure, or have an enclosure custom built for a specific sub. A reputable local car audio shop should be able to help you with this.

Airspace is airspace and a subwoofer doesn't care what shape the enclosure is, some subs are ment for a low volume enclosure and some are ment for huge enclosures or even no enclosure at all. If you just want a small wedge box to go in the back just make sure that the sub is ment for a low volume enclosure.

I guess I'm asking if its possible then. I can pretty much do anything with fiberglass. Is there enough room for the subs to fit. Its just been so long since we had our commander, I never really looked. The main goal is to put them where the will not interfere with the backseats at all. Most of the time the 3rd row will be down. But I do not want to have to move anything to go on a road trip.

Thats a good design, ive never been a fan of Elemental Designs speakers though. (not saying their bad, just never impressed)

If I was building to keep the third row of seats i would look at doing 2 or 4 8" subs across where the jack and tire tools are. build it to attach like the original piece does. Don't know if it would fit but I can take a look tonight.

It also depends on what kind of bass your looking for, if your looking to be heard from blocks away, that wont work for you, but neither will a single 10 in a wedge box. I like my sub bass to blend and not overpower anything, i don't want people to know I have a big sub in my car when theyre listening. So it would work for me.

I have access to another commander w/o a sub installed, let me take a look tonight and see what kind of room there is to fit some subs.

BTW: MMMM subway....tasty.

That Elemental Designs box looks nice but I bet it doesn't sound so good being that close to the tailgate. I just built a vented box for two 8's which sounds awfully good but it definitely isn't what you're looking for. Maybe you should look into some free air subs for what you're trying to accomplish.
