Subwoofer Install with custom box (PICS)

So I've been waiting a while and finally decided to install my subs. This was my idea for a box, and I like it a lot.









Just took a VIDEO OF IT. Sounds really shitty with a regular camera inside the cab, but maybe you'd be interested to see it anyway.

I'm really happy with the way it turned out. The subs REALLY KNOCK and I love it. You can't go wrong with memphis!

For those interested in specs:
2 Memphis 12'' M3 Subwoofers
Memphis PRD 1.1000 amplifier

Now this is a REALLY nooby question, but why are subwoofers installed in the trunk sometimes? Can you even feel them when in the front? It seems like only the air in the trunk would be moving, and the passengers wouldn't feel it.

Bass frequencies propagate through almost anything, so even though its in the trunk, most (like 99%) of the bass will go straight through the seats and rear dash into the car. A 1/2 inch steel plate would have a better chance of stopping a 50. cal sniper rifle then it would a 60hz sound frequency!

No, sounds very clean. I had to fade the treble to the front, but the rich Boston highs mixed with the premium Memphis bass lows makes for the sweetest setup i've ever heard personally

Yessir I did, so there is no rattle inside, and only a mild/actually nice sounding rattle from outside the cab in the trunk area.

To everyone else: Thanks for the feedback/compliments

yes you can go wrong with memphis. ok sorry but from the sound of it they flutter. not just cause of your camera recording i can hear it through the distortion, second you need to really upgrade the components you have no vocals. sorry now the install is nice but why the whole trunk? unfortuanatly i am broke at the moment but when i do get my car set up i would love to show off the system. all i have is my scion right now done up. i just might record that to give people an idea but you will not get the full experiance from a recording on here need to be in person. we all know that

OK so I have a few questions too....

I have the EXACT SAME speakers.... but I dont know if I want to put them both in the Camaro.

I was gonna put them in my jeep, but then decided to get the Camaro... So now I would rather have them there.
I never installed them in the jeep, just left them in the cardboard boxes.... Now I am curious though, just how much these speakers are.

I dont know if I want that much ground shaking heart stopping bass.

I think I want just a little, to make the music better. I am not trying to hit in the 150db range like I did with my Solo Barics, back in the day.

SO,

Do you know around what db area you are hitting with those?

How many cubic feet does each speaker get out of your box?

is it ported or sealed?

You better use lock tight on the spoiler bolts!

Too much Boom Boom for me, I like tight Rock Style Bass. But nice trunk design.
