    Custom Subwoofer Enclosure to Replace Cargo Tray - HELP?!

    CT200h owners,

    I have a base premium CT200h (subwoofer not included). I am thinking about building a custom subwoofer enclosure to replace my cargo tray. That way, I will not loose any trunk space. Has anyone done this? I would really appreciate any pictures or plans that I could get my hands on.

    Does anyone know where the OEM subwoofer goes in the CT200h? Can I buy the OEM subwoofer enclosure anywhere?

    Thank you very much for your help,

    Mike

    I have a base stereo (now modified) and they made a subwoofer enclosure to replace the styrofoam tray which used to sit on top of the spare tire. I'll take some pics this weekend to show what they did....the car appears stock with nothing cut out in the area of the sub.

    Thanks for the reminder...I just went out and took a few pics. Hope they help you. Basically, the cut most of the styrofoam spacer and made a particle board box with the speaker facing down, then covered the top part with black carpet. It drops right in over the spare tire with a quick disconnect for the wire.

    I did it the easy way...I paid someone.
    I do know we retained the stock headunit, added two amplifiers (one specific to the sub, the other for the speakers in the front door...both under each front seat) and replaced all wiring with thicker wire, replaced the front door speaker with a tweeter and midrange. The speakers in the rear door are still stock, and functional, and they can be adjusted using the headunit front-rear fader. They sound absolutely awful so I fade them out. There is also a new volume control knob (mounted under the steering wheel column) which is specific for the subwoofer...It is handy as the best amount of sub varies whether using the CD vs. Sirius vs. iPod.

    Msheppy, are you working on this still?

    I am doing the same thing. Doing it myself. I plan to tie into the rear speaker wires coming out of the amp. Just putting a small amp and sub in the tray area. This project will take me a couple months. I plan to put all plans and installation pics on this forum if you are as slow as I am. Otherwise, can wait to see your pics.
