Subs for my v6.

So heres the deal. I love subs, and ive always had a system in my car. I had two 12 inch type r alpines in my Mitsubishi with a 1k watt amp which slammed pretty hard for being low wattage. I still have the subs and amp, and I want them in my Camaro now. I know I need a custom box to fit it. I checked the dual ported box on subthump and was going to go with that since the specs are quite close with the specs needed for type r's. Either way. I'd like more opinions on PORTED boxes to fit the Camaro trunk, and I need to know what aftermarket radio to get that would actually fit the unworkable Camaro dash. Any advice would be wonderful. I have 75% of the equipment I need for this to happen, I just need my box and radio, and a little bit of power wire. Help me out.

That's a lie. Those are confirmed to be only 11 inch subs.

Subthump makes a ported box now. It'll probably be the most cost effective and his stuff is really good. I have a single 12 in the subthump stealthbox ...with a single kicker 400.1 mono amp and it pumps.

I'm not a fan of the aftermarket head units.

So do you use a converter for the regular unit? is it annoying?

I hate the way the dash kits look in the camaros, so I used a JBL MS-8 to connect my amps. Plus you retain all the factory bluetooth and usb, etc.

I'll give it a look and yeah I know what you mean, I looked up a few and wasn't impressed.

I'm running Sony Gs 6.5 front, Sony Gs 6x9 rears, 2 Type R 12's in a vented box forward facing. With 1 MRX 1100 amp for the Subs and a 4x65 amp for the front and rears. Hits hard inside the car. Keeps the noise down on the outside.

See I have the discontinued type r 12's. this is a nice setup. I want door speakers too, was it hard to wire? and Is it annoying taking off the door panels for this? I did it on my old car and wound up breaking a few door panel clips. I have Total Mobile Audio 1k watt mono amp and I wired my 12's down to 1 ohm. They used to slam in my Mitsubishi. I'm afraid what box to get, I don't want it facing forward though. Any suggestions on a box to fit my type r's? Here's a link to the subs I have, that provide the specs. http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...SWR-1242D.html other than that. Should I use a converter instead?

I have Sony's in the door using all the factory locations. Nope not hard at all the Alpines amps have High level inputs so all i did was cut the wires for the factory amp and put them to the Alpines then run the outputs to factory speaker wires. The door panels are cake they use metal clips at the top and trees at the bottom. For the box just remember that you need 1.2 per sub. For vented 2.4 for both. And account for speaker displacement.

I know that this thread is from last year but I figured I'd share this photo in case anyone cares. I'm a HUGE "bass head" so I have systems in all of my vehicles. I installed three 12 inch Alpine Type-R's in an enclosed carbon fiber box. I also added Type-R front and rear speakers as well as a few amps to power everything. This car BUMPED like you can't even imagine, and it was an enclosed box too!

I actually sold that car last fall to a guy a couple years younger than me (and I'm 19!) and ordered and 2014 Corvette Stingray that will be arriving in about a month. I will be installing another killer system in there, but it will definitely take a lot of planning and positioning since I will still need to fit the targa top in the rear hatch. Anyway, I'll stop rambling now.

Good call on those speaker grills I had to throw away my alpine R 10" because everything in my trunk was banging against it.
