I noticed Charles has done this to his Skodas too. the face of the woofer fires directly at the metal ody.

Not having done this sort of sub mount I cant say but I would like to try. It sure saves space in the trunk which ,for me, is very valueable.

I would imagine some spacer would be required. can someone ask Charles? Tell him an old man wants to know :-)

Navin, how do you think a setup like this would sound? Please check the link below.

BT, the setup you are referring would be something like this I guess.

http://www.lalena.com/audio/projects...rPicOldSub.gif

Does anyone know guys in Chennai who does really cool installations. A website link or photos of their work would also be great.

Thanks

No bro, that looks like a bandpass enclosure to me, and it could be a terror if not implemented correctly. Bandpass is one in which, simply put, the subwoofers are entirely inside the enclosure without either the front or rear of the sub directly firing into the listening area. The sub fires inside the enclosure and the bass is escorted out only by ports. If you want to try your hand at something exotic like that maybe you should pester Navin into giving you the blueprints for a transmission line ..what say Navin?

What I am suggesting is something like this..

You could make it look better by either mounting the subs inverted, i.e. with the magnets showing instead of the cones and/ or do the front baffle with some plexiglass so that you can light up the insides of the box. Useful during Diwali!

I have heard a lot of controversies about where a sub should be placed in the trunk and the direction in which they must fire to produce the best response, but have never encountered a fool-proof theory in this regard....which means, that should be a good thread to get some opinions from all the in-house gurus. Yipppee. I'm going to start a new thread on that one!

1. like B&T said it is a prefab band pass box. I have tinkered with bandpass and on only one occasion that I can remember have been satisfied. In a car BP is a bit easier to get away with as road noise etc disguise any anamolies.

2. see http://www.metaleffect.com i hear they are based in chennai.
