I have an 89 Crown Vic and the WO will fit in the spare tire tray. Maybe yours will to?

Well Buggers that is exactly where I was going to put it. Here is a pic of the installed WO.



Everyone who has heard this baby has been impressed. In the car my hair is being blown around a little bit and I'm only driving it with 100 watts RMS.   Smiley  All that I have to do now is build up a spacer so I can install the rear 6/9's.

[quote author=hannes  link=1155583718/0#11 date=1164305741]Gexter:
any comments on the 12" WO32? Everything as expected,
i.e., clean bass, just a tad more output than the 10" version?

Sorry for thread-hijacking, but I am interested in a tweaked
WO32...

Bye,

I have the 12" WO32 in my basement and fired it up. It is not as accurate and fast as my 6"WO32 but a whole lot lower of course. But I don't know if I would do it again . It is faster than the WO but I cannot say it is deeper. I am unable to do any remotely accurate testing anymore.

All I have run into it is 100 watts and its impressive but not much more than some other projects. I can hear the house making some creaks on the low notes so thats kinda cool with only 100 watts. this was my last bass project and I always wanted to build a big WO32.
I think that the 8 " WO  or an 8" WO32 would be cool and so much smaller.
I really like this 8 project its nice work and if is like any of my WO projects its a good one.

I started other projects for now with my youngest sons car and my CRV ( thats a nightmare)

thats really nice work Yok666 while my 12 DB fits in my sons car I am thinking that a 8" Wo might be the ticket

Nice work York!

Any plans to put a flat panel in behind it to cover it up? Maybe a plexi panel for the amp and blocks?

I like the hair moving thing. Not an easy task in that type of car. Certainly no easy task with only 100 watts. Of course that amp is a bit stronger than the rating IMHO.

Good job

I wasn't going to cover it up. The wiring is protected and I like to have the air flowing around the amp. I feel that rather than the Soundstream being underrated they are just honest with their power ratings.

Yes it is firing into the seat. I wanted to keep the bass in the car as I doubt my neighbors share my taste in music

what would be the smallest you could make the box with 8's?  I am wanting to put one in my 94 mustang gt with 8's and have 15" between the bottom of the trunk and the package tray.  I would like to face it up and fire it through the factory sub opening if I can.

24x 36 but wait! only 10 thick.
I cannot be done unless your real smart and you have room for a 48 wide WO.
But now you get to spend a couple weeks figuring it out and then build it and find out that it may not work at all.

Then you think to yourself if I was going to custom build a box I should have built ported or bandpass, I spent way too much time on a poor sounding box by trying to hack the design that much.

Thats my opinion anyway and I am a Hack
Don't do it unless you really understand the box, and it will no longer be a WO

My box ended up being 11 inches high. I wouldn't worry about firing through an opening the bass travels right through the seat like it isn't there. Plus my wife likes the back massage she gets when my son plays some rap.  :)

How about basic ported enclosure 8" on the deck as well as the ports
build a ported enclosure that is tight against the rear deck lid.
You could remove the deck cover to the steel without wreaking it and then put a ported box so it vents and fires up through the steel ( try to place everything so it can) and then make a cover with accustic carpet.
When you need to you can remove eveything later

Or just build the 24x36 with the 8" and fire it toward the trunk.
and tighten down to the truck floor as best you can.
Thats what I would do because I am getting lazy and do not have the time to fabricate anymore.

Sorry for being so negative
Best lof luck
