Pmmeke: I'll keep my fingers crossed! I've dynamated everything from the doors to the rear deck to reduce rattle but we'll see.

Fonzer: The subs are 12 inch JL Audio W7.

Also something that's not a bad idea would be some sort of threadlocker glue for the bolts. They made heat-loosening threadlocker now that goes on wet but will then dry hard and keep bolts tightened. If the bolts need to come out you can use a heat gun to heat the bolt and the stuff will loosen and allow you to remove the bolt/screw. I've used it successfully on some audio-related loosening bolts, and it's good stuff. Make sure it's heat-removeable though!

Done! That was one of the first things the installer and I talked about regarding these subs...it'll be another 4 days until they are all done. Thanks for the advice!

How do the W7's sound without an enclosure? I'd think that wouldn't sound near as good since they're not really designed to be used like that. Just curious.

Pmmeke: The rattling that can seen/heard is on the license plate frame. Otherwise, everything is intact and I'm very happy with the outcome.

Ron: They did an overlay over the cutouts of the W7, I'll get a picture for you later on in the evening.

Sterling: Surprisingly, it hits VERY hard without an enclosure.

The more I'm looking at this, I'm wondering....how much airspace does that enclosure contain????

P!mp factor is huge...

And I'm with ron on the airspace issue...box looks a little on the small side for those w7s.

Did you use the threadlocker???

edit: the more I look at the box the more it looks to extend over to the sides and back as much as possible, and there might be some decent airspace in there.

The subs can function like that. Having a cone within an enclosure works the same way as enclosing the basket of the sub. I know it's odd, but a lot of setups use that to showcase the basket. The cones are enclosed; therefore, the subs are in a free-air setup.
