I am planning to add an additional identical box rather than one unit having two subs. This way I will have the flexibility to run one sub (@4 ohms), two subs (@2 ohms) or none at all (in case I need boot space).

Any problems you forsee in this arrangement?

Finally, I have added one more subwoofer in parallel to the existing subwoofer. Anwar also made a custom fibreglass enclosure inside the boot. Minimal space lost in the boot inspite of having 2 subs. Performance is rocking. I need to get a grill for one of the subwoofers. There was no stock with Anwar. Here are the pics

Thanks Navin !
I would have enjoyed the job;
However, our frind is in Bangalore.

Besides, Anwar is a great installer - one of the best that there is !!!

The Isobarik may not have worked;
You see, his Amp may not have had the power to drive both the subs - the spl would have been half !!! Please do keep that in mind.

I guess, what he had done is great. Looks lovely. I do not know how he got the volume calculated, but it sure looks good;

All the Best !!

Job well done.

cheers:

Actually, the volume is not that small. The Civic has a cavernous recess at this point, which has been made use of. The volume should be easily 1 cu ft, but there is no way to measure it exactly. Yes, it does produce good tight clean bass.

There is quite a large recess at that point, so the volume is quite big, surely in the region of 1 cuft, though I cannot measure it exactly. Good question on the taillight, it is a bit difficult to replace the bulb, but this is a screwon enclosure and can be removed.

1 cu. ft. is quite small besides I would assume that the sub would take up some volume too. Yet without a listen one cannot comment on if the box is adequate.

The subwoofer manual (GT5-12) recommends 28 Lit for a sealed enclosure which is a shade below 1 cuft (including the driver displacement). Whatever it is, it sounds real clean. Best part, good punch even at low volumes, which is what I really wanted.
