Default Subwoofer size for free air mount in Baleno

Hi all,
What is the maximum size of subwoofer that can be mounted in baleno on rear tray. i have a 12'' woofer in box now. need to move it on top to make boot space. there are two rods of boot door passing midway that area, hence the doubt. Also i find the width looking less.
Will the car need a rear strut bar after cutting off all the metal?
i am not getting much exchange value for this 12'' rockford, so want to keep it.

the 12" rockford that you are talking about, which model is it?
is it meant for free air use? is yes, and if mounted on the shelf, then be prepared to listen to a much boomier sound than what you have right now. bass notes will be 'held' for longer and it will translate to a fatiguing experience while you drive.
if not a free air sub, then your output will reduce considerably, compared to the output that you get with the enclosure.
my 2 cents, do not mount your subwoofer on the parcel shelf. theres too may modifications to make. its not even worth making a large cutout in the body.look for a small enclosure, a sealed one perhaps, or else get it made according to the specs of the subwoofer model. place in the corner of the boot and forget it.
mounting anything other than a free air sub on the parcel shelf will result in a less satisfying experience.

Is Noise kill even a brand?? The main supplier told us there is no brand called "noise kill" its called audio damp. Since there is no marking on the product any body calls it what ever they like and claim to represent it at times

I'm sorry, I thought they did. Maybe B&T can clear this.

Panky Ji it is there....from Audison.


Subwoofer size for free air mount in Baleno-fonomat.jpg

But it is black in colour and costs around Rs 1200 when I bought it for 5 sheets of 9 inches x 9 inches. Which comes close to 315 for per sq feet.

I am missing my subwoofer in car but decided not to cut the tray and put it in free air mount. want to fix it in a fiberglass mount on a side but i was quoted anywhere between 5 to 7k for it. i dont have a powerful subwoofer to spend so much on it so want to diy it. can anyone tell me where i can source fiberglass in Mumbai and what glue to use with it?

i had tried that kind of setup but it didnt sound good. had to increase volume substantially to hear bass, else had to remove the spare wheel. decided on first danping the boot fully and then fix it on one side after i source fiberglass.
