Are those 8's or 10's?

How do you get enought airspace for those subs to play properly in that small enclosure? Are the subs separated, or are they sharing the same space?

e46fanatic,

Could you post a step by step on your sanding process: which grits you used and how high a grit did you use. Also you said you painted yourself did you use spraypaint or a spraygun/air compressor.

I have heard that companies like BMW and Mercedes try and keep the sound that is outside the cabin, where it is. Do the subs still sound good even though they are in the trunk?

my car doesn't have the sky passage between the trunk and the rear seat. Anyone knows how it will sound?
