Default All your bass are belong to us.

So Rick was kinda enough to hook me up with some Sound Stream XS-12 subs...so I kidnapped Y8s' and forced him to use his superior skills and built me an enclosure.

Now I has bass.

FWIW, 2'x4' sheets of MDF do not fit in a miata very well

i never liked having a sub in the trunk. when your driving with the top down its useless. i would recommend you have your friend make a box for the foot well and get a 8 inch or 10 inch sub, its the best sound you can get.

You can hear it quite well with the top down. I was rocking out with my **** out this morning...Slipknot's double bass pedal pounding into my chest.

just because you dont know how to design a trunk sub and have a legless boyfriend doesn't make trunk subs bad.

mine is awesome with the top down at 80 on the freeway. but see since I have a leggy gf and 10 years of subwoofer design under my belt.. I did what I had to do.
