Polo MK5 subwoofer

Post by PowerDragon »

Hi all, my sister wants some bass in her Polo mk5 6R, but also wants to maximise her space, considering it's a small car already.
Traditonal boot subwoofer use far too much space. I've tried to find a wheel arch subwoofer, but cant find anything, just so I could evaluate if they would work, unless I have to make one but may sound s**t.

I've looked for underneath seat subs, but ones I've found are too thick and wont fit, plus I'm unsure how they would really sound.
My other crazy thought was, if possible, some high quality woofers or subs into the rear doors, perhaps one on each side, amped?
I'd probaby need to dampen them of course, but would that idea even work?

Anybody have any experience with this or ideas? Thanks

It depends how much time and effort you/she wants to spend on it. I’ve made custom sub builds before from fibreglass and MDF, it’s a lot easier than most people think.

JBL Nano Underseat subwoofer should fit. I am about to install one next week into my polo GTi.
