    Apologies for the late reply - yes I do, 3 pairs of them in fact and on the lookout for more.

    i've seen this done but its a very time consuming process and the fibreglass work is a pig. i know of people that have made an mdf cone and then fbreglassed that to fill the recess so its easier to remove if/when you sell the car.

    nice hair there niek, and sub project
    your kid seems enthusiastic to learn

    to gibbo that started the thread, what you decided ?
    you could always get a wee 8 inch in a custom box, and tuck it to one side out the way.
    or you could be ruthless and tear out the back seats to make ultra boot space.

    Oof, that was over 10 years ago! *scratches head* If I remember correctly I used 2 to 3 litres of resin and roughly 2 m² heavy matting. Don't quote me on this please.

    Default sub in spare wheel well

    Does anyone know where I can have a sub box made to fit ski or might have a go myself. Daft question but how important within reason are the dimensions???

    A subwoofer needs to "see" a certain volume (in litres) to work properly. Do you have specs on the sub? The spare wheel well holds roughly 22 litres give or take. As for the level of difficulty: it's doable given the right tools (old brushes and rollers) and materials (matting, resin, hardener, mould release wax, tape). If a numpty like myself can do it, pretty much anyone can.
