I have two 10's and they are loud as hell. You might not want to go with 12's. I have an awesome box in my car that Thomas Kenyon's shop built. Rear retains stock look and you wouldnt even know the subs were there unless you lift up the carpet. Thomas has some pics if you want to see them. I only have this one pic:

Okay then, maybe I should just sell the sub I have and go for two IDQ's? They are cheap and work fine.

I have a 12" Eclipse Aluminum if anyone is interested.

One 12 would sound great IMHO. Save the money and just put the 12 in there.

Im gonna be building a box to fit 2 12 Macdaddy's. The are both gonna need .85 cubic feet. I was thinking about laying fiberglass for the bottom of the enlosure and the laying some 3/4 MDF board on top. Would this be a good way to do this, or would there be a better way to do it? The bow will be in the spare tire well, and i want to re-tain my targa storage area.

I remember seeing the best install on a buddy of mine's friend's car out in NOVA or MD, but I forget who it was. I wonder if he's floating around on the forums.

Tom,

You should build the bottom portion of the box with fiberglass and MDF. Just putting some wood at stock floor height will probablly not give you the necessary internal space. You way have to raise the floor a bit to accomodate the ol' MacDaddys. (See Jeff M's box? We built that and it has been raised about 2 inches to give it more room.)I can just say that you'll need to internally brace the hell out of the box if you are planning on putting a serious amount of power to the subs. I have my box built with about 1 inch of glass and until I internally braced the box, could hear it flex.


Robert,

I have my entire car sound dampend with Cascade V-Block. It is similar construction as the Dynamat but I feel it is easier to work. Nevertheless, I have done my entire hatch area and the rear lift up hatch with the vinyl matting they offer and it makes a huge difference. Once you remove the spare tire and all the other stock foam parts, tools, the road noise is terrible! It is very much recommended that you use some sound deadening becuase the road noise will be way too much to overcome. (It bugged the shit out of me for the first week I had to fix it!) You will be able to purchase enough to do the ENTIRE rear of the Supra for about $120. It is well worth the money regardless of the brand that you choose.

Robert..

Oh yea.. About the spray, do the car in as much vinyl matting as you can and THEN if the noise is still too bad, then get the spray.

I don't have any spray in my car, just vinyl mat.

It does just fine

With these factors to consider, I would use the JL Audio 12 W3D2 if you have good power(like at least 2-3 hundred watts RMS) and if not use the JL Audio 12W04. It will work with the amount of space that you wil be working with and not need much power. (100 to 200 watts is sufficient)

Both will give tons of low frequency output. Easily the best for the cash IMO.

There are better sound quality woofers but none that will have the SPL that the JL line has. (For the price, remember!)

Yes Brittany, I have tons of pics of Supra installs BUT, I have just downloaded a new internet explorer and for some reason it does not let me send pictures with my emails..

Gonna have to uninstall and reinstall it again..

Only wish there were more time in the day!

I'll try sometime tonight if my wife doesn't have some "project" for me to do.
