8" - i'm under the impression a decent 8 is hard to get a hold of - you'd be much better off, if you want decent sound, with a 10 or 12 inch sub in the boot :wink:

Yer, the 8 inch isnt bad, but a 10 or 12 would be better..
Id like to upgrade my speakers/sub but i want my boot to look stock - VERY hard when trying to upgrade sub/s.. might see if this will do till the upgrade.

You are gonna need an amp also.

I tried to fit a sub in that space, using the connections already available, then I found the amp bracket behind the carpet on the right wall of the boot. I thought I would just be able to connect it, silly me. But I dont know anything about radios, cd players etc....

So when I found out that I would have to buy an amp as well, the plan went out the window for now.

yea, unless you wanna build a box under the parcelshelf, you're gonna have to get a freeair sub

a freeair sub basically means the sub's cones suspension is stiffer to compensate for the lack of a box

the bass from the factory sub is minimal and with vibrations in the parcel shelf. A 10" driver in a box is alot more efficient and it will leave you with plenty of boot space. i have mine mounted with velcro to stop it sliding and can be unplugged or moved if ever needed.
