Question Anyone put a sub in there sparetirewell?

My car has no spare tire, just a fancy can of fix a flat. Im about to put that space to work and am looking for ideas. My plan is two 10inch flush mounted subs through the trunk carpet and floorboard (facing up) and two amps hidden in the sparetirewell underneath. Any ideas or PHOTOS (hint hint).

Nice car!! As an alternative... juice bottles, slush box, battery relocation...

I have no idea on the subs... I can't even remember when I'd need some... traffic updates come out clear and for the occational rock out there is enough from my Shaker 500...

This is what I ended up with. 2- 10 inchers, 2 amps and my fix-a-flat fit in that big hole.

Looks NICE!! You drive around without the mat? You have covers for them? I would rig up some serious mesh so I could still use the full trunk...

Luckily I have the luxury model so I got a spare tire... LOL

TooL has never sounded so good.
I will try to attached some more photos of the finished piece. My carpet fits perfectly with cuts outs for the subs and the amp then I have a nice fitting removable (flush) mesh cover that covers it all. I was having trouble uploading those pics but Ill try again tonight.
Thanks guys

Yes it was custom made. As far as airspace Im not sure but I am amazed with the bass so I guess its got enough. Heres a shot with the carpet in and another with the mesh cover on.

Man that looks nice. I wish I had seen that before I installed mine in the trunk.
