two nos tanks huh? thats pretty boss. like said above, the box required for the w7s are fraking huge. these cargo areas are pretty small too. id think a custom side mounted woofer and a single maybe larger tank for nos would be a cleaner look or just do what vin diesel does and put a few single gallon tanks under the seats for a cleaner sleeper-type look.

harrison has...

the box is really wide. not at all like the kicker...no chance of being able to fit to large nos tanks that way without being up against the edge of the cargo floor especially being 6" out from the seat back. plus your amps on the floor. itll look cluttered IMO bro. id run a 10w7 MAYBE and a smaller amp on a custom built FG side box up against the panel to still have room. not to mention itll be a step backwards for you when you want to race paulo because of the 150+ pounds of MDF/sub/amp/wiring youll be adding...sure you want to loose that .1 or so? lol

The W7 has very large displacement and a huge mounting depth AND requires several inches of clearance between the magnet and the bottom of the enclosure.

I had my 10W7 hooked to an Alpine PDX-600 600x1, absolutely blew my mind at how good the sound was.

I'm tired of my 12W7. I've had it out of my truck for months now just sitting in the garage.

wont sound right .. you need to correct air displacement depending on sub model for optimum sound.

it'l work .... just not very well :p

I agree, at that point, get a small sub for a smaller enclosure and it will sound better than a bigger sub in a baby box.

what if you flipped the sub around to have the magnet showing like you see in show cars. looks nicer and wont need the depth (would it?).

I can do that. I have to look at some kicker subs. I'm not taking up all that room and weight.
