looking for different ideas... more than likely for 2 10s
A.K. audio makes a custom sub box for g body cars. You can find them on face book.
Made by atrend.
I would just go with a high quality 10" an amp. If you go with two 8" ,those seems to distort if you are a head banger. www.crutchfield.com have subwoofer boxes.But if possible I would go to the your local car audio store and have them build it.Also if you decide to go with your plan of installing subwoofers, if your car doesn't have the rear back seat GNX Brace,go ahead an get that installed,not only it's going to stiffen your car ,less vibration in the trunk. Good luck!!
Thank you for your suggestions......
I went with 2 10's behind the rear seat. They are from Pioneer and are a slimline design so you don't even know they are there until you turn it up lol. I did have to remove my back seat braces though I have room in the trunk for the two amps up top and no big box in the way. I don't have a pic but could take one if your interested in the look?
If you like 10s, mount them rear-facing in a sealed enclosure. They will need approximately 1 sq ft per sub, and typically at least 6.5" of mounting depth depending on magnet size. Use holofill in the enclosure to absorb vibration. Also, if you are okay with the look, dynamat the trunk lid- with its length on these cars, it will vibrate pretty badly. Use thick rubber washers between license plate and mounting plate to minimize the shaking.
If you want a "stock-ish" or stealthy look, spec the box build to get you the cubic feet you need while still staying within the dimensions of the rear package tray. Mount the subs, and cover with the thinnest factory matching carpet you can find. You'll still see the outline of the subs, but you will maintain the most trunk space, have an overall cleaner install, and won't compromise sound quality.
I plan on getting a custom 4th order box with a couple 10s built pretty soon. Its going to be ported through the rear deck to avoid the trunk rattling
What kind of music do you plan to listen to? Ported boxes are more for rap/pop, as they provide less-controlled cone excursion and have a slightly lower frequency range. The downside is that some of the "punch" is lost. Sealed boxes hit more "crisply" (if that word makes sense) and are more geared for rock music. Also, ported boxes have to be bigger than sealed boxes, if space is a concern for your application.
Been building competition audio systems for 25 years- if you have any questions, feel free to hit me up.
Don't have the experience you do but have been around car audio for awhile now and I'm a fan of 4th order boxes. Everything you stated is true but the trunk/quarter panels rattling with sealed boxes is one thing I can't deal with. I've tried adding sound deadner in the past but still had rattles.
I listen to all kinds of music and a properly tuned and installed 4th order box does the trick for me.
It's tough chasing down rattles with the sheer area of sheet metal on a GN, and the fact that these are 30 yr old cars !
Is that two 12's and what box is that?

2 - 10's
Here is what we did with my car. Sub and amp are behind the panel.
Do you have more pics.... BadAss setup!!!
Sorry, I sold the car. These are the only ones I have. It should not be hard to duplicate by a halfway decent radio shop though...
