Baffled on Stereo stuff

Alright so I have a sound system I won in a contest is a rockford fosgate and I only drive station wagons last car was a 89 crown vic wagon and I just bought an 05 matrix

Problem is its got two 10 inch subs I would only want one as two is too much for me (also have all of the components but they will fit in the doors.

My problem is I use my cargo area CONSTANTLY in both cars I cannot for the life of me figure out where to mount a sub where it would make sense?

I mainly listen to rock, dont care so much about bass more about clarity but I do like it loud sometimes.

So uhhh WTF do I do having one of the subs would be nice for when I am tailgating or just need it loud but I have no where to put it.

Thanks dudes.

If you only listen to Rock ditch your sub and beef up the rest of your system.

There isn't much you can do. Get a single box that is small and put it against the seat. You can aim the driver into the cab to protect it from cargo. Make sure it has 1-2 inches between it and the seat, and secure it well.

Maybe they sell a spare well box for your car if youre willing to lose the spare.

pics of the area in the hatch?

It's not terribly hard to build a glass-backed box that will fit flush against the body panels.

it's a fairly popular car... i'd be surprised if someone doesn't make a custom enclosure that fits snugly against one side of the hatch


something like this:

In my Protege5 I mounted my amp to the sub box, then used 4ga quick disconnects for the power connections and a single disconnect for the amp relay wire. It takes two seconds to pop the connectors and pull the whole mess out, then stick it in the garage. In a pinch I have also been able to drop it in the front seat while hauling stuff.

What's the rear speaker arrangement like in the Matrix, ie. could you build a bit of an enclosure behind the rear speakers and put in midbasses?

Wouldn't be an ideal setup for blasting gangster rap in your local high school parking lot, but it'll be great for rock if you can pull it off.

+1 to small subs in place of rears... you can get long travel 6, 7 and 8 inch "subs" that will work well as a pair along with some creativity on his part for killing the backwave...
