Wink Perfect box for a hatch

just put this in my hatch good for over 140 DB

Sounds Awsome
the seat flips forward with the subs as the whole lot is connected to the back seat so as I can still have a boot area and spare wheel

yeh, i just finished building my sub. I made it entirely by myself, with fibreglass and mdf wood. It fits perfectly in the corner and sounds awesome, but lol, probably doesnt compare to those machines you got in the back . I calculated it to be around 40L or a little bit above, but its round so its probably a little bit inaccurate.



I took heaps of pics making it so i might post up a 'how-to' later on.

robm that looks really slick, is it removable though?

how to would be good, as i'm still tempted to build on integrated into the boot (like rup's)

cheers guys, seems like there's alot of demand so i will post up a how-to soon. The box is fully removable, its only held in there by velcro but doesn't move while driving because it sits in really tight. If needed, i could easily move it out in two minutes max and get to my spare tyre and jack.

WILL PUT UP THE DIMENSIONS shortly
the box flips forward with the seats as it is bolted to it this gives me plenty of room for getting at the spare and jack plus if I have to put the tools in to do a job I can flip the seat and box forward and load up. Also great if we want to go away plenty of room for the wifes crap and my fishing stuff.
LOL HEhe

under the floor.

There's a centre section of the floor that lifts up. About the same width as the sub box.

I also have a can of Tyre Weld in the car for a quick temporary fix

see the thread

Wink Original

I have been able to stay with the original standard set up with the way i have set the box and amps.
The spare and jack are under the boxin there Original spot.
As I have gone for some big bass and Audible sound for demo.
This sounds great.

My setup in my TX3, sub box is custom (sealed), had a false floor built and it hinges to allow access to the spare. Amps are mounted on the back
