I suspect the C pillars won't have enough volume (cubic feet) to house a sub.

Bazooka actually makes a box specific for our cars that tucks into the right rear corner, some folks on this forum have them and are very happy:

You can get it from eBay for less than $200. Search on eBay for "scion xb bazooka".

An alternative to a box in the rear is a 8" sub in a box under the passenger front seat, that's what I did.:

At least one person managed to cram a 10" under there but blocked his floor heater vent.

Another alternative is to invert your spare tire and use the volume between your trunk floor and the spare, you will lose some storage space in the process.

Do a search for "subwoofer" on this forum, you'll see a few solutions and options.

Have fun!

I don't have time to find a link, but do a google search for Ruckus speakers. They have a factory option for some really cool looking speakers in the c-pillars. I think they are in a thread somewhere on here too. I asked one of our Aussie members if they sounded good, but apparently not. If you can fiberglass you could just make something similar with better speakers. I don't remember what size speakers were in them.

IIRC the Ruckus subwoofer is very expensive, does not sound very good, and is relatively small (I think about 6"). Most folks like the subs to be at least 8". Even then, some folks call an 8" sub a "mid-bass" and so they put in 10" or larger, or even dual subs.

I'm not sure there is enough room on the C-pillar to mount an 8" sub. You also need to ensure the C-pillar is deep enough to clear the sub. Most 8" subs need at least 4 1/2" of mounting depth (unless you go with shallow mount subs).

I agree it wouldn't make a good place for a sub. I just like the look of the ruckus speakers. They look more like a set of components than a sub. Just trying to give toyota89 some ideas for inspiration.

Here is a link to a photo by the way.

I have 4 cdt audio ms 80 "micro subs". They are 8" and require about .2-.4 cubic ft. if you could find something similar im sure you could figure out a way to get them in the c pillars
