Subwoofer advice.

Hi. So my HK parcel subs are rattling and I believe it's from aging but I was considering into putting underseat subs in. It looks like I have enough clearance to buy one and install it, but wanted to know if someone here did it. I need the trunk space, so out of question.

We noticed it was the subs when I actually unbolted the two 6x9 subs off the rear deck. Ugly annoying sound I would say. If I wanted to bump music, I usually turn the bass down

But since I'm handling this situation soon, I'd rather have an oem or stealth look and vibrate the h0es I drive by.....if possible

We offer a subwoofer system that hangs off the rear deck in the trunk of your car and will sound far better than any underseat subwoofer setup, and still leave you with quite a bit of trunk room if that is something you would be interested in. You can find more info at the link below, or feel free to contact me directly with any specific questions!

Subwoofer advice.

It's a wicked CAS box. Google the name and you will find it. Come at the cost of about 450 shipped though.

For those that want almost all of their trunk space it creates an issue. Anything long, like golf clubs, become an issue with fitting.

Or what if I just get one sub mounted on the rear deck between the two mid/bass speakers? Like a 8" driver?

Subwoofer advice.

Get a sub box that goes all the way back make sure it doesn't move around. Put in dynomat all round to prevent any vibrations. This way you will still have room in your trunk for stuff
