    JM, what boat do you have (sorry, I'm on tapatalk and can't see your sig)? How hard was it to take the hump out completely? I am thinking about going this same route for the sub on my 08 lsv.

    Here is what I am looking at , thanks to Ian and dusty it got the brain moving...

    Any pros or cons from you expert builders.

    1.1 cu ft sealed box. Smallest footprint of the three. Best way to deal with wires


    1.15 cu ft sealed.


    2.2 cu. ft ported may have o move forward and lose three to five niches of leg room.

    I don't think being off to the right would be that big of an issue. Also, what are you centering with as their are alot of different focal points. You will make a fascia for it so its all uniform across the front anyways. Or you could put a sub on each side Or build a storage box, LED Moomba logo, etc to offset the sub being on the right side?
    Edit: I read Votto's post above and it seems by hump I was thinking of that thing on the right that the kick panel that it screws into but I am guessing no, it seems there's an"actual" hump on some models.

    Mine is open like Votto's.

    I have a Supra so I wouldn't be putting any LED Moomba logo on the panel. Now an LED Supra logo, hmmm, might be tempted.

    jmvotto, I may have missed it earlier in this thread, but what materials are you using to construct the box?

    MDF will soak up water, no matter how much resin you coat it with. My first box had a full gallon of resin inside and out and it still got destroyed by water. I would (and did) go with a nice ply, like Birch.
