2 12inch subs in the trunk of a 1999 mustang

Im looking to buy 2 12 inch subs in a ported box for my mustang. my friend let me try to put his 2 12inch kicker cvrs in his ported box in my trunk but we couldnt get it to fit, we didnt try trough the rear seats cause it looked like it was a smaller opening. I dont really wanna buy a custom box for like $300. is there any way to fit like a generic ported box for 2 12s in a 1999 mustang trunk? can you show me pics of your setup? i can get that box and sub setup for my friend for $200 but if it wont fit its kinda pointless.

thanks in advance

i made mine in shop class :p haha

thats about the best way if you don't want to spend a crap ton of money and you have access to a nailer (or a drill if you want to screw it together) and a saw, particle board isn't super expensive and i can get the measurements off my boxes if you want it, they fit perfectly into the trunk front to back but side to side was something i had to deal with some sliding but you couldn't make them any wider and still fit in the trunk, if you got one of those non slip mats and put it underneath them it would keep it in place i'm sure

as to the generic boxes that your frined has... if it won't fit through the actual trunk opening it sure won't fit through the back seat compartment, you could cut the box down some maybe to get it to fit if you wanted but then you chance throwing off the cu. ft. of the box too much and produce a tight bass instead of the more desireable deep bass

a few tips...
Bandpass, what i ran in my trunk, is normally much smaller because it essentially turns your trunk into the sub box while still letting you get a tight bass, and it causes less rattle, but if you dynomat thats not an issue. I ran the same box in a rusted out 99 buick and my 95, didnt hear rattle in either car except for the cracked license plate frame.(You wanna sound good, not like an idiot right?)

I ran 2 10's in the trunk of my 95 GT, I got a lot of good bass from a bandpass that slid right in the trunk opening and still left me with enough space to take a week long road trip with a buddy and not cram our crap in there.

if you want to stay ported, get a good set of instructions and build a box out of MDF, theres a way to figure out how much volume the speakers you have will need, then just build the box to get that volume. glue all your joints before nailing or screwing them to make a good seal, otherwise all your work is pointless, and use MDF because its simply the best, most affordable material to do this with.

If you wanted to stay ported

Are we talking like a good band-pass or are we talking what you can get off the shelf at an audio store because those boxes suck.

Anyway to get a big box in a mustang you have 2 options:
1.) build box in the trunk
2.) find a box that will fit through the rear after you remove the back seats and the frame the seats bolt to.

good bandpass, designed around the subs i had (massive dual coils, ate up a lot of volume). if youre gonna buy it in a store, just get a premade kit and deal with the crappy sound.
