Looking for good bass with little space...

So I have the spare mounted where the back seat was and some day it could be a 35 inch spare so theres very little space to work with. This is my first choice for subs I was thinking of getting two of these badboys - Pyleaudio.com ::: Your source for Car Audio, Mobile Video, Neon Lighting Audio&cat2=Woofers&model=PLBASS10 Tell me what you think.

^bad link, if its the plbass10 don't get it its over priced and they sound like crap. pyle audio is a low end over priced product.

for the price of two of those you can get a much much much better setup

Alright thanks and it is the plbass10. I guess I'll get to work on making that centerconsole and get that sub you suggested in the first place. Just thought that might be an easier solution.

yea pyle is badddd. never go with it. you can probably run some 8s or evens a 10 somewhere. I dont know what your workin with or how good you are at fabing stuff yourself. center console sounds fun, I might make myself one someday... time to go dream.

Well I took carpentry for 2 years at school so building a sub box or centerconsole shouldnt be to hard. I have no experience working with metal though but I'll give this a whirl.

Here's an idea I came up with...sorry for the piss poor design, but it was right before bed and I didn't have my contacts in. The slope on the box is off...but basically what you'd be doing is making a box that is dual purpose. Spare tire mount and sub box...and with the right design, it would also make your audio equipment very difficult to steal.



Basically what you would have is a slanted sub box with 2 subs in it (your choice of size) and in between you'd mount the hub for your spare tire. Set the height right so the tire doesn't contact the subs but keep it close enough that if a thief gets into your vehicle, they can't remove the subs without breaking the box apart. To secure everything, use a wheel lock on the spare tire so they can't remove it to get to the subs. The amp location can be anywhere...I chose on the back of the box for a clean install, but for some folks, they may want to raise the box up and mount it on the underside (for weatherproofing AND security). It's all a rough design, but I think it could work great for folks who want bigger subs AND a larger spare tire in the back.

Also check into shallow mount subs... Elemental Designs has a 10" sub designed to run in small boxes and it only needs something like a 3" mounting depth. http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_...roducts_id=106

Thats actually an awsome design. Personally I'd like to have two tens firing downwards and have the spare mounted just like in your picture. The amp could go on the backside of the enclosure. The tricky part for me would be getting the right support built into the enclosure for a 35 inch tire.

or you could put a nice 15" sub in there, it will hit the deeper frequency and all you need is one high end sub on a jeep. you can get a nice amp and sub for the price of 2 subs and an amp and still push out more sound. i like the sound of the 15" death row from incriminator audio.

That 15 would be nuts. I might start making up some plans for a revised version of s3nt3nc3d box to hold a 15 an amp for it and the my crunch ground pounder that I have now for my speakers.

if you listen to rock more than rap go with a 10" or 12", but if you try to play rap at some point the 10" sub is gonna be worthless, if it is a mix get a 12", those incriminator audio subs are tight so the 12's have a good punch too it when playing rock and heavy metal, if you get a song with a drum set with a double bass pedal going ape**** the 12" hits like a 10". i have a death penalty from incriminator audio its a 12", of i had room for a 15" i would get one.

SPL is pretty low IMO, the pioneers would prolly smoke um...but!!! Those are made for trucks with really small space, I wouldn't even try one in a jeep.

Alot of the music I listen to have some insane drums and double bass pedals going crazy so it sounds like a good idea to go with the 12's then. Do you know a good amp to power those subs?

I have the pioneer 5-way 6X9 speakers in the back. And they are perfect for me with the amp I've got them to hook up to. The speakers are rated to 460 max watts I dont know the rms wattage i know thats what really counts but the amp is a 1000 max watt 4 channel again dont know the rms wattage on that either but with those pioneers and the jvc 4x6 in the dash its loud and clear i want some bass to match them. So pioneers are in the book for me but what about massive? I was in one gjuys car that had 2 12 inch massive subs and it was nuts.

Well I already know its got to be 35 inches wide and to get a 35 inch spare to mount on it the spare the center of the wheel has to be atleast 17.5 inches up so the box would be a total of 20 inches in height. I just need to figure out the mounting depth

Nah, if your using the same amp it won't make a difference honestly.
