seal off trunk help???

Recommended Posts

Ok. so I built a box for 4 10's its about 4.5cuft. its in a 2005 Pontiac Sunfire. I'm the kind of person who hates a rattling trunk lid... so I want to seal it off...

Problem is, the only way I could put the subs in the trunk was to put them facing up. I know, everyone is probably against it.. sry..

Other problem, the trunk lid hinges swing down an inch beside the box and the torsion springs are directly over the edge of the box..

I wanted to put a panel across the entire back of the box to the fender wells. but the hinges obviously wont be able to go thru it without a hole..

anyway, I need ideas to seal off the box from the trunk.

also, if anyone knows where I can get some kind of hydraulic hinges to get rid of mine, that would help a lot!!

here are some pics so u get what im talking about.

Don't see how you will pull this off. I'm not saying it isn't possible but will be very difficult. For the cost of custom hydraulic hinges you could buy two better tens and build a practical box that could be sealed off. Or you could rip out the torsion bar, build a cover over the top of the subs that would cover the sides and the back and would only have an opening in the front but that would be like some strange 6th order box. Good luck man and post pics. Also if those are the 01C10VR4 subs, Kicker recommends 1.5 ft3 each so you are quite a bit under sized on net volume.

Edit: Thought of more to say.

i've never seen somebody seal off the trunk with the woofers and port firing into the trunk. 99.9% of the time the baffle and port are flush with the hole between the cabin and trunk.

good luck.

OP you are pretty much kidding yourself, it's ok since is just some MDF in play and you improve your box building skills but anyways if you ever get any serious about performance, get different equipment (all of it I guess) and do two higher power 12s firing forward port forward and sealed off.

Take this as you wish but I think your up shit creak with out a paddle on this one man. Take 2 of those 10's build a nice box for the 2 then seal it off or just Waite and deal with the fact you have subs and port up in a trunk.

I remember the thread when you were asking for input on the box you have now and if irc they were a few people who said it was not a good idea. You went from a box with too little airspace and too little port area to another box with the same issues and added trunk rattle into the mix.
