'05 GT Convertible Trunk Dimensions


Hey guys.
So my current endeavor involves my recent purchase of 2x2011 Kicker L7 15" Subwoofers.
They should be arriving in the mail soon, so I'm starting to plan out where I'm going to install them.
Here's my issue.
I'm driving an '05 Mustang GT Convertible, so my trunk space is very limited.
Here are the specifications of the speakers directly from Kicker's website.

Model Solo-Baric L7 15

Size (IN.,CM) 15, 38.1
Impedance (OHMS) 2 or 4 DVC
Max Rec Amplifier Power (WATTS PEAK/RMS)* 2000/1000
Sensitivity (dB 1w/1m) 89.4
Frequency Response (Hz) 18-100
Mounting Depth (IN.,CM) 8-11/16, 22.1
Mounting Cutout, Square (IN.,CM) 13-3/4, 34.9
Min Rec Sealed Box Volume (CU. FT., Liters) 1.5, 42.5
Max Rec Sealed Box Volume (CU. FT., Liters) 6.0, 169.9

Min Rec Vented Box Volume (CU. Ft., Liters)** 3.0, 85.0
Max Rec Vented Box Volume (CU. Ft., Liters)** 6.0, 169.9


I enlarged the most important information, that the woffers (by my preference) will be installed in a vented enclosure.
Thus, they're going to require a minimum of 3 cubic feet per woofer.

I found these boxes on eBai linkthat will absolutely do the job, but I don't know if they'll fit.
Box dimensions:
Dimensions 16 1/2" Height X 21 1/2" Width X 18" Depth

Why can't I measure it myself you ask?
I just moved to california, and the whip is sitting in my driveway in VA.
I'm arranging to have it shipped as we speak, but I'd love to have this all ready before it gets here.

Please also note, I'm considering removing the back seat cushions and installing them back there, but I'd prefer the trunk if at all possible.

Thanks for the welcome and help in advance everyone!!!!!!!

At it's widest point (driver side to passenger side) is: 103 cm(40.6")
Narrowest point (driver side to passenger side) is: 66 cm(26")
From top (from back window) to bottom (bumper) or is 40 cm(15.7")
Depth is: 85 cm(33.5")

This was taken from another post and converted to inches. Another thing you have to worry about is the trunk opening though.

Sealed is the way to go.

Smaller enclosures, tighter deeper bass.

Sure, you lose the boom, but the deep tightness is better anyway - and with a pair of 15's, you won;t be lacking for impact of volume if you power them correctly.

I would do some custom fiberglass enclosures if going all-out like that.

Alamo Stang, thank you VERY MUCH!!!!

DiMora, I think I may just go with sealed, just to save on space.

Will keep you guys up to date, thanks for the replies!!

each one puts out 1000 watts rms, 2000 peak.
Double the woofer, double the power (each one powered separately). I'm a bit of a basshead.
I bought two so I would be slamming down the block at 2k rms, 4k peak.
Enough power to take the wind out of your lungs.
Necessary?
If you have to ask, yes. =D

Due to the storm about to destroy the east coast, the transport companies are scared to move, and long story short, it'll be another week or more before I can have my beloved baby.
Thus, the only thing I can do to soothe my stress and desire to have her, is do everything in my power to make sure I have Everything ready when it's finally delivered.

I grabbed these pictures from eBay listings, and modified them a little just to reiterate.





Two and three are the best in my opinion,
but essentially, what I attempted to do is illustrate what Alamo liter-i-zed?

If just a few people would say 'correct', I'll be one step closer to ordering another part.

Also, I'd be almost willing to offer $ for A: confirming these measurements
B: Getting the "Another thing you have to worry about is the trunk opening though." I believe I indicated with purple.

I was able to get two and a half bodies in the trunk once...they didn't make near as much noise as your subs will though...

I have found the biggest problem with my 06 vert trunk isnt how big it is inside, but how small the opening to get things INTO it is.

You can actually fit 4 if you, eh, 'disassemble' them *cough*
A friend told me that.

Yeeeeeep.
Hence why I want to get this last opening measurement before I buy the boxes.

I'd build the whole schabang myself like my last build, but since I've moved out to California and I'm living with my uncle in a condo/apt., all my power tools are out in the country in VA :'(

Im interested to see how it goes. I am going to do a fiberglass side enclosure with a single Morel 12" at some point. I have the sub, the amp, the Cache unit (uber high end LOC/line driver) and everything. I just need it to not be 120+ deg in my garage.

I'm definitely going to keep you guys up to date.

That's my part stack as of right now.

Essentially, because all of my powertools are back in VA, I'm going to wait the week and a half or so it'll take for the car to get here, then measure that purple line.
I'm considering offering someone $ to measure it for me so I can save more time.

But, when I find out how large that opening is, I'm going to see if the pre-made boxes on eBay will fit through that hole, if not, I'm just gonna buy a sheet of 3/4" MDF and a circular saw from Lowes and do a home-made like my last build.

I'd go fiberglass, but I have no idea what I'm doing, am working in a garage that's owned by an anally clean and tidy man, and don't have a ton of time to learn fiber-glassing,
plus I plan on making the boxes easily removable, via a few anchor bolts, so if in the future I need to remove them for weight reduction, racing, It won't take more than 30 minutes.

I wanna see your fiberglass work when you get around to it.
If it goes well, I may go that route in the future.

Its not going to be anything crazy, just a simple side enclosure that will be less square/more molded looking and takes up less space sticking way out into the trunk. I MAY make it in such a way that it bolts in like the shaker 1000 box. My sub only needs like 1.1(it can work in smaller, but for optimum 1.0-1.1 is best) so it doesnt need a huge box.
