I seriously doubt that it will give the desired SPL + SQ as compared to a sealed box. I will take a SWWS setup as a juggar.

The SWWS is a great solution for a poineer sub in a Maruti 800 or an Alto;
Not so sure if I would try it else where.

A Spare Wheel is seldom used, but it must be there in the car. In case of travel [out of town] or an emergency.

I believe it was discussed during EVO6's ICE setup in his TT where he has used this kind of sub arrangement

Sir, while I honestly didn't get the above comment... Let me explain what exactly I meant:

The spare wheel stays in its place. A fiberglass enclosure is made using the inside cavity of the inverted spare wheel & the sub is installed in the sealed enclosure. Ultimate space saver, nearly entire boot remains available.

Also, I don't do juggars.

Thought about that too, but the spare wheel is a real eyesore sitting in the trunk, and does not translate into a huge space saving either.

Add to that the fact that the fiberglassing + labour works out to almost the cost of the second driver causing isobarik to be more feasible.

Guys, the spare wheel sits in its original location... Well anyways, seems like you guys wanted to do an isobarik.

Right, but with the wheel still sitting inside it would be very little volume for the Im subwoofer.

In Isobaric, the enclosure volume is about 0.8 cu. ft. Plus Bhagwan had the additional sub lying spare anyway.

Btw, aapka to 10" hai, hamara 12" hai.

I think the (above) setup was a free-air install.

Gunbir probably meant a similar install, with the difference that a small (sealed) enclosure could be made with fiberglass (moulded to the shape of the inside of the inverted spare-wheel) and fixed in the cavity made out of inverting the spare-wheel. I think such an enclosure could be made to the equivalent of at least 0.75 sq.ft volume.

EDIT: OOPS, just saw your post, B&T

Red face IM 12 needs 1.5 cft [I think]

If the IM 12 is used in a sealed enclosure, it need 1.5 to 1.6 cft of space - sealed enclosure.
I was using it in that manner in 2 seperate enclosures for the Skoda. However, when I put the GZ's in the Skoda these IM 12's got available. So instead of using 1 of them in a 1.5 to 1.6 cft enclosure, I decided to use 2 of them in an isobarik so as to save on space. My enclosure would drop down to .8 cft. The extra amplifier power was not an issue. I think the Steg on Bridged 2 ohm load pumps some 1K watts [I think. B & T will know the exact rating @ 12V. Sir, please do add the details.

The long and short of it, I did not want to make a 'isobarik' but made one because :-
Space Saving.
Extra Woofer was there.
Amplifier power was on tap.
Nice experiment - learning curve for me.

May not work, but I am ready to try another kind of a loading if this fails.

arey, baba, this is a sealed iso aint it. how can it fail? sealed boxes are really tolerant. just ensure you wire the 2 drivers correctly. besides according to google-man you get 110W more than you want (1KW)! :-) LOL that too at 11V. At 12V you'll be very happy. If you need more power you can always add a BOSS capacitor.

abhi, photo kab ayenge?

Yes, the enclosure is sealed.

The Baffle between the 2 woofers is 3" thinch.
The side walls of the enclosure are between 3" & 1 " Thick.
Concrete & Ceramic + Butamine Linned.
Non Parrellell sides etc.

I will post fresh pictures of the box with the carpet etc. on Wednesday.
The Install should be complete by Tuesday evening.

I still need that 9887 HU. No one seems to be having it;
How is the Elipse 7100 HU ? Any one Used it ? Recommended ?
