    Default Under seat coMpact subs, bass tubes and boot subs, what to get???????

    Hi guys as the title says compact under seat subs, bass tubes or big box boot subs. What is the best or preferred out of these as I am wanting to fit aftermarket speakers and tweeters and I'm looking for something for the bass and have no idea. I need space in my boot and like things to be hidden out the way and that's why was looking at under seat subs, on the other hand I like the look of bass tubes and there not to bulky but what quality will I receive from the above items? Hope that made sense lol.

    What would you guys do??

    Cheers
    Stu

    Sorry for the bad lighting in the pic. Plenty of boot space and the amp is tidied out of the way incase the box needs to come out.

    Tubes tend to be awkward to place in a boot, especially if the amp is integrated and you need to remove it quick.

    Did take a few pics of how i installed it if it's any help to you http://vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=152876

    With the under seat ones bear in mine the Vectra has a big seat connector under there so check the space first. I tried a pioneer one in which just did not fit! Remember the bass will not be massive from these small ones under the seats. They add to the standard setup but are nothing compared to a 10" or 12" one in the boot.

    In mine I have the amps under the seats and a JBL 12" sub in the boot which still leaves quite a lot of room. That way if I need more room and want to remove it, it is simply a matter of two wires to the speaker the amp stays in which takes seconds....

    I think I'm going for two 8 inch under seat speakers and a ten inch sub in boot mounted to driver side of boot in custom box?
    Do you need to wire to an amp before under seat speakers?

    I made a custom sub box with a shallow MDF front and fiberglassed rear (which is all measured to allow for the correct sub volumes etc) ... Dead easy to do actualy... And I have little is any clue when it comes to this sort of thing... all in it took me 3 days to make from design to install...

    Heres mine in the boot...

    That's the exact thing I'm on about mate! That's what I am planning on doing where did you find out the correct box volume for the size sub you got?

    Cheers
