As I said, I just installed a Bazooka VSE-SCI-145L-07 subwoofer that's designed specifically for our cars. It form fits deep into the right rear corner with an aprox .5 cu-ft bass reflex cabinet with an internal 50/50W dual channel amp and dual VC 8" driver. Frequency response is 35 to 85Hz.

As is usual for me, I made some wiring mods :p, but it worked pretty darned good as is and includes a completely factory compatible wiring harness. The harness uses the front door speaker outputs from the head unit to detect the bass.

I find it provides easily more than enough bass to meld cleanly with my door speakers at normal listening levels. (However, if your intent is to attract the attention of passersby or vibrate the fasteners out of your car, look elsewhere.)

I dont like these at all. They look just kinda throw in. The bottom isnt flush with anything, seems out of place IMO.
My only disappointment is they sit just a tad too low to permit my cargo liner flap to slide underneath -- 'course, that's an accessory, so one can't expect too much. The especially nice thing about these is they keep the cargo area completely clear while providing very good sonic integration with the door speakers (IMO). Course, cool, everyone has their own likes and dislikes :p!
yeah definitely. I wish my cargo area was clear haha.

The bottom is basically flush w/ the floor level. BUT, it also sits over the cavity there, so it looks like it is just hanging there. In person, it looks better and more "inconspicuous" than in most shots of it.
yeah, thats what I don't like, it blocks the cubby hole, but doesnt cover it completely, kinda weird.

In many places, you need a HUGE custom fiberglass box to even be looked at for a trophy. Even hidden units that sound better get overlooked (excuse the pun).
(-A bit jaded over most car show judging by people w/ certain expectations that get every "custom" car looking alike and many pretty impractical as a regular transport car. But, that's just one soda box . . .
-modern soapboxes won't hold up anyone anymore.)
this is so true. My setup sounds like garbage, but wins trophies cause it looks awesome. It would be nice if a judge would actually take the time to understand what goes into a great custom sub enclosure thats both functional and looks great, but they dont for the most part.
