    Default Estate Subwoofer - Any stealth options?

    I have a JVC headunit with Kicker components in the front and I am really pleased with the mid and treble in the car - great clarity!

    But I'd love a bit more base - has anyone managed to build / fit / find a discreet subwoofer option for the Vectra C Estate?

    Thanks Chris

    I took this out because it sounded poor, it really needs a free air sub or a fibreglass box making and a sub for that sort of air space fitting in there, I just took apart an old active Vibe Sub.

    I have got some old long mill free air subs knocking about. They never give that full bass effect as free air but good tone. Could just about fit a port in there to help get the air moving. Nice idea there buddy, might give it a go. To the laptop...

    I have a couple of 12" Pheonix Gold subs in my shed but to be honest I think a pair of 8" would fit better in the side trims, sadly.........

    Or just do what I did and fit sub boxes in the boot with quick release connectors so you can remove them in 10 seconds and fit the amps etc in behind the panels so it's all fully "stealth" when the subs are removed.

    Thread here, subs and amps fitting from page 5 onwards. http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...RY-IMAGE-HEAVY)
