I would be checking with the proper authorities before cutting holes in the rear panel, it may be deemed unroadworthy the same as if the parcel shelf on a sedan is cut.

Holes aren't a problem as long as you don't remove the whole thing without bracing. Done the research man! You really don't think I would go cutting up my ute if it was illegal do you? :lol:

yeh always better to be safe than sorry....for along those sorta lines they only have a hissy fit if its any structual modification that would be deemed to weaken the strength of the structure or make it unsafe.

as in what type of BA tho..sedan,ute or it dont matter and yes theres examples out there of all B series types that have sub/subs installed.

What were you wanting to know...where they mounted them/had them installed ?

I'll see if I can hunt down some pics but Ive seen a few BAs with 12" woofers...one had one 12" sub mounted in a corner custom enclosure behind each tailight...another had the 2x 12"s just up behind the rear seats in a normal dual sub box mounted to the floor....and one BA with a single rear corner mounted 15" woofer. Havent seen a BA yet with 10"s

BA and AU use the same cabin layout ... so anything that can be fit into an AU will fit into a BA.

I have two 12" JL Audio 12W0 subs in 2 seperate enclosures mounted behind the seats on the small shelf ... they fit nicely behind there .... I have the sub amp mounted on a plate in the centre between them.

I have pics somewhere on here of it.
