Hi folks,

I installed an Avic-f90bt head unit for my 08 EXL and now want to get some bass in the van and looking to install a sub which is non-intrusive in the back. I've got to retain as much room in the trunk as possible, so was looking for suggestions on what others have used and what you would suggest for a sub/amp combo???

Thanks

The first thing that popped in my head is putting one 10" in a fiberglass enclosure in place of the spare tire in the back. If you ever go on a road trip, just throw that spare in the trunk so you have something to use.

where does the touring place the sub?

I thought about the spare tire, but to be honest that is a safety concern which I'm not willing to live without, so that would not work for my situation.

Is there another discrette option people have used effectively? Or perhaps how does the Tourning hide it's sub?

Put the subwoofer in that compartment right behind the front seats. No one ever uses that.

great idea!

The space behind the front seats would seem to work real well...anyone have recommendations on what to place there? 10", 12", duals? Any prebuilts (sub and amp combo)?

Thanks

I just checked mine and there's TONS of space. You can stick at least two 12's in there. I would put one 12" sub in there. The bass should hit pretty hard since it's enclosed. You might even stick a 10" bass tube in there with a built in amp :)

I've been looking to use that space, but have no idea/reference point as to how it would sound enclosed under there (would it be muffled?)

*EDIT* ... just came across this thread.

Too bad it stopped short of pics; would've been helpful.

Greg !! Awesome work !! I don't think the bass would sound muffled since bass is non-directional. It's like sticking 4 ten's in the truck of a car ( something we did back in the day ). It sounded really good.

The bass is very clean and tight with no muffling. Helps that I'm only running it from 55 Hz. down, it got boomy above 70 Hz. otherwise. I've since changed the headunit to an after market one and put three 5 1/4" mids in each door and a 1" soft dome tweeter in each sail panel. Improved the sound a little bit.:D
