Audio Experts - Anyone put a Sub in the car?

In the process of upgrading the sound system... I have 12 GT Prem Vert Shaker 500. I prefer not to put the sub in the trunk, need the space for golf clubs, luggage for trips, etc. I am not looking for a boomer, just more high quality bass to go with what I have so far.

So, has anyone put a sub under the passenger dash/glove box, or anywhere else in the car? To date I have Focal (IC 570) speakers installed (front and rear), 5 channel amp (Alpine MRX-V60), signal processor (Audio Control LC6i). We ave each speaker on a channel and putting the two stock subs on the 5th channel until we can get sub into the mix. Any other comments suggestions, etc. I am willing to replace the stock subs, but I would like to keep the stock cover, so as I understand it eliminates the Shelby Kickers. Thanks. Review coming when finished, but so far really liking the sound, so much better, clearer at all levels, including when the top is down. Thanks.

I threw a 12" Kicker Solobaric in the trunk with an audiopipe amp and capacitor and I just have the box snugged up on the right-hand side of the trunk..

Not sure I can really help you for a stealth setup that you'd like, but let me know if you have any questions.

I know you don't want it in the trunk because of space, but what about this?

It's only taking up the corner and is fairly low profile by design. Also it comes built specifically for the Mustang.

Even if this prevents your golf stuff from fitting in the trunk, would it fit if you fold the rear seats down? This way the golf clubs or whatever could mostly sit in the trunk, but also pass into the cabin a little bit.

I have the same enclosure but the 12" version. Doesn't really take up much space since it's tucked in. That space is pretty much dead space anyways! Still have plenty of room in my trunk.

Thanks, I will look at and measure to see if clubs will still fit. Just not willing to give up that space for a sub (will live with the doors subs if I have to). Size is the primary reason, but the other reason is the ability to hear with the vert's they have metal enclosure that the top sits in when it is down that separates the trunk from the top (think firewall). So the vert trunk space is the same with it up or down, I actually like this feature, which is different from Benz, BMW, just about all other smaller verts. So a little concerned I will not be hear it well, without turning into a crazy boomer set up.

Good suggestion on the folding seats, I would luv to have that functionality, but that is not how the verts come... the rear seats do not fold

FYI, most super high end sports car (Ferrari's, etc) put a sub in the foot well of passenger side.
