Default Hidden speakers in rear with hidden sub!

Not sure if anyone out there wants an upgrade stereo with a little sub, speakers in the rear AND no use of any very needed space for t tops, rear window and luggage?
later this week Iíll post a pdf if the template I cut for the rear speakers. The template kinda shoves to the back into that cravas back there. PLUS added bonus the sub seems to fit under passenger seat!! More updates as they unfold.

Sub under passenger seat. Using the bass for foreplay?

Does that sub fit under the seat without modifications to the floor? How much room is there actually under the seats?

Thanks for posting this! I made an enclosure myself that *should* fit in the back without interference for the rear window tray but if not, I am absolutely borrowing this idea! Nice, clean work and thank you for sharing!

Default Here you go...

Ok the template is made to be printed on 8 Ĺ x 11 standard paper.

There are 4 pieces you will tape together after printing. The pdf is actual size so when you print it do not (scale) or( make it fit)

Just print 100%. After printing you can check the 1Ē mark i left for you. Tape all 4 together and cut out of 3/8Ē plywood.

Once the material is wrapped to the front and back it will make this piece even thicker and tighter in that cravas in the back of the vette.

I noticed if you put the speaker in first ( and itís to low and itís to big) it become almost impossible to slide this in. Rear window storage tray

will work nicely, but not if your speaker sticks out much..Remember hand built cars, so not all the same, you may need to tweak..

Thanks for posting the speaker template. I may try that next winter.

I used the right rear storage for that sub.

That was my first choice. I was worried stuff on there would vibrate?
