@muneem, I don't think the free-air install will be a good idea. Two reasons:

1) Getting a free-air install to work properly in hatch is very very difficult. And pulling it off will involve quite a bit of expense in making the sealing-off of the two zones is perfect. For perfect sealing you will need to give up dropping down the seats. And, over time, the expensively sealed partition is sure to leak air.

2) A 8" sub will not do thaaaaat much to support the current 6x9s. Considering what the sub and a well-done free-air install will cost, I think the better idea will be to go for a 10" sub in a removable box. Or at the very least, the same 8" sub in a removable box. Just remove the box when you need to, and carry those extra coconuts. You'll get maximum bang for the buck this way (as against free-air).

[BTW, I have coconut-carrying-issues whenever we visit my Dad's and Mom's native place (also in N.Paravur, BTW). I just flat refuse to carry any coconuts in the boot (with the additional dirt and ants that come with them). All coconuts carried in the car accompany my Mom in the back seat (securely tied in a sack).]

Another idea will be to get a fiberglass enclosure made in the hollow in the Swift's boot (just behind the tail-light area) for the 8" sub. Even a 10" sub (with low-enclosure specs) will fit there. You'll need a grille also to protect the sub when luggage is carried in the boot, though.

Why is everybody mom's place at N.Paravoor now i know 2 other bhpians with their mom's place at Paravoor.

considered the Fiberglass install first but ruled against it because,we won't be keeping the car for long ,upgrade coming up.So would be a tough job to bring the car back into stock condition,when we sell off the car, But the measurements that I had mentioned earlier is correct right ?12" X 13" X 9..." ?

These are common problems faced by every mallu I guess the coconut Syndrome.

Oh the sub that i have planned is either the Db series or MOMO series 8" because those are the only 8" easily avialable, Does anybody know of any other 8 inchers ?

Man I have never seen any 8 inch sub install before. I guess this one will be ideal for my alto as well.

Get it done Muneem.
