Hey I have a 2007 g6 gt coupe and I want to put in 1 10" or 1 12" subwoofer in my trunk but I'm not sure how to go about it because I don't want it to take up that much space. I was thinking getting a shallow mount sub but I'm not sure. Can you help?

Most bang for you buck, would have to be a Bass Tube. Self amplified, so you can add to your existing set up. A shallow mount, will def get you the volume you desire. But even if done right, a shallow mount will just disappoint you. For proper sound from a sub, it needs and enclosure. Hope that helps.

What about a sub in the spare tire well? I know people who have done them and were happy with the outcome. You do lose your spare tire, but as long as you arent' planning on doing any road trips, it may not be a bad trade. I personally like the enlclosures that fit along the side of the trunks and wrap over the wheel wells, they get good sound (if built right) and still leave the majority of your trunk available for use.

This is my set up, as you can see there is still plenty of room for my tool box and jack. It is just a shallow mount Memphis 12, Memphis amp and a custom fiberglass sub enclosure. Hope this gives you some ideas.

Wow, that is a steep price tag they got. I do like yours better. I know how to make the fiberglass boxes, but I don't have any experiance with laying fiberglass.

It is really easy. here is the way my buddy and I did it.
1- remove the carpet from the side and layer it with 2 layers of tape and then one layer of tin foil. (so the resin doesn't ruin the carpet, cause mine is not really a part of the trunk it is removable)
2- put a layer of fiberglass down then resin all over it, let set up for like 30 minutes then repeat like 3 to 4 more times to get a good solid box.
3- once it has set and is completely hard remove it from the carpet then cut a piece of wood for the front. then fiberglass the holes around the board so its all one solid piece.
4- drill in the hole for the sub and use a flashlight to check for thin areas. hold the light inside and shine it around well looking outside to see if there is any holes or thin spots.
5- if its all good then wrap it in felt with resin and then carpet it. if you want the cool G6 logo in the carpet, then just cut some foam and glue it on the felt before the carpet.
6- then run some wires mount the sub enclosure and enjoy.
Hope this helps, any other questions feel free to ask.
