Max Dimensions for Box in Trunk

Hey I was wondering if someone could give me the max dimensions an 04 WRX sedan trunk is. I have made two boxes for it but they were both to big. So if you could give me some dimensions that you know will fit in the trunk that would be great. See I can get the boxes to fit if I put them in through the back seat by taking it out, but i would rather be able to take it out through the trunk for autocross. Thanks for any help, Chief

Maximum dimensions? Why build one so large? Use the recommended box capacities that the subwoofer manufacturer states. Most subs these days require pretty small boxes.

You have to use a larger box because of the sub. I doubt you have heard of resonant engineering, but its a XXX (www.reaudio.com) You cant use a sealed box, you have to go ported. Yeah, and the dimensions they have are to bid for my trunk. So if you can help let me know. Chief

Some pretty jazzy car audio they have. I've pretty much been through that stage in my life, but I would tell you to just go with JL Audio. You'll have no problems with box fitment that way. Not saying that I wouldn't like to hear those XXX subs though.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

<------ Click to see what I'm workin' with. ;)

So could you give me the dimensions of the box you had. A XXX is quite abit better than JL, not saying JL is bad, just middle of the road.

I'm not a big fan of JL personally..... not bad quality for what you pay, but there are much better products on the market.

the XXX looks like a JL W6V2. But I fit a Ported 13W6V2 in my trunk and still have room for a 30 pack all the way across my trunk.

I can get a closer shot of the trunk to you if you PM me but this is from ym car

I had a custom box built for my car, but it actually had to be built inside the trunk. I can still access the spare tire and fit plenty of stuff, like a few cases of bottles in the trunk.

Find someone that can fiberglass everything into the trunk, it looks so nice like that. I have a 15" sub a friend of mine is going to fiberglass in the trunk with the amp and all the wires for 100 bucks. I dont know what im going to do with my spare tire though

Where do you guys put ## stuff??? I would hate to not have trunkspace, and yes I have subs in the SUV, but theyre not that big and I still have a lot of trunk left.

I didnt post a picture, but my box takes up a little bit less than 1/2 the trunk and I have one of the amps mounted on the side of the trunk and I still have room to fit about 3-4 cases in the trunk. Not sure how much stuff you really want to haul around, but I can also fit all of my fire gear back there including SCBA. Still plenty of room my friend.

I think when I get my wrx Ill keep my stereo and put it (as much as will be universal) in the subaru, but in a custom fiberglass box.
