Hello all, I have most of my system done, I still need to get a JL 450.4 to run the top end - if anyone has one to sell please PM me!

I had Soundwerks on Bell Rd build a new sub encosure (not free air) with one JL Audio 8W7 woofer under the rear deck. From the back the box hangs down (sub is huge and takes 1 cubic foot box) under the place where the factory sub once was. I have a 500.1 JL amp running it and the thing pounds (for an 8" I mean). There is no rattling which was a must for me, and the box was make of 3/4" MDF. I will be adding a amp rack as soon as I replace the ADS amp I have with a new JL amp.

The rear deck had to be cut out larger for the sub and also the rear deck cover was cut to accomodate the throw of the subwoofer. This thing really moves (the surround is huge and the excursion is rediculous) and when the first istalled the enclosure it was moving the rear deck cover. They need to finish it up by adding some grille cloth back there, but I was thinking of glassing it in. and painting it to match.

Here are a few pics.

Wish I would have done a 10" but the box would have been large, the 8 sounds crisp and clean, not booming...

I like that as well. My two tens are a bit much. Can you get a better pic of the trunk so we have an idea of how much that sub hangs down? Thanks - Joshua

Im sure ill get in trouble for critisizing, but that looks a little out of place hanging down there, why didnt you just run a sealed box in the trunk behind the seats?

The box will not be seen at all... There is a 500.1 in there now, and a 450.4 that I just ordered today both by JL audio. There will be a nice amp rack, I am not sure if the amps will be seen from the truck, or in the rear seats when folded down or in the spare tire well. I want to do them floating on some steel, but that will depend on how crazy the install will be priced... The box will DEFINITLEY NOT be seen when the install is completed.

Here are some pics, the box takes up very little room, I'd say there is at least 12 inches from the floor to the bottom of the box. If anyone has suggestions, or pics of a cool way to display the amps, let me know!

Thank you

Paul

PS, disregard the ADS amp laying on the trunk floor, this amp is gone, and sold on Ebay!!!

Thank you
