I think its a 10' sub. And i do get a lot of rattle off the door and the plate, but i put rubber things under the plate so that doesn't rattle at all, just the door. I heard you can't aim the sub up cause it wont work as good??
you may want to try a product called hushmat i think that is the name i believe their web addy is www.hushmat.com i am in the process of finishing sound deading my rear hatch, i just did one layer of dyno mat and now i am doing a layer of hushmat material then i will spray it with noxudol(not sure on the spelling on that one)
thats awesome!i was reading some reviews on some small ones similar to that they were all good i need to go hear them but the ones i was looking at were only in stock across town can't wait to get all of my goodies!i want mine to fill the whole trunk but that will be a long time from now unless if i can talk to my fiance into getting my system for my bday which is coming up soon
The subs work fine in any direction except for facing you (unless you have them wired 'backwards') I could go deep into it, but there's literally a million different reasons to have the subs face specific directions. Anyways, facing back is the most 'normal' config and usually is best for most people. Just get yourself a dynamat/fatmat/hushmat....well, anything mat sound damping kit and you'll lose the rattle of the hatch.
thanks for all the feedback, I do need to get some kind of "mat" lol back there cause the sound outside of the car sounds like crap, however, inside, can't hear it at all lol. not sure what mod i'm going to do next, therear lights of the cool air intake. lol
I have an Alpine Type-R 12" 2-Ohm dual voice coil. The box is made by Alpine with the port. It's too big to aim back (door won't close), so I had to aim it forward, but it still sounds awesome. I had it in my 1999 Landcruiser and it sounds way better in the box.
