After three weeks I am ready to begin upgrades to the HK sound system...Starting with the weakest link, the 'subwoofer'. JL audio will soon be offering two stealth boxes-a dual 12" and a single 13", however these are both underseat designs and I do not want to lose the underseat storage...So the only truly stealth option is a custom one.
I just ordered a new HK Subwoofer ($145) from Mopar Wholesale Parts to use as a 'model' for a custom fiberglass enclosure. I think I can design it to fit a 13" JL Thin-Series driver which is only 2.64" deep and needs just a .80 cubic feet enclosure. As I have limited time (and need to focus on my business) I will likely work with one of the high-end car audio shops I know for the actual fabrication. Will post updates as they make sense!

I ordered the fox acoustic dual 10” sub box. Problem is I have about 8.5" from the bottom of the seat to the carpet. The box is to tall. Maybe a issue with limited seat being lower for more head room. If any one knows of a good box that will work for under seat please let me know. Been looking at my JL RD1000 amp, subs and box on my shop floor for months. If you have installed pics please..

Please keep us posted, I'm interested to hear what you did. I also have the HK system and would like to add a little more bump tip the system as well.

Will do, I have some overseas traveling coming up soon so will probably get a chance towards the end of May.

Would you be willing to sell the stock HK sub? Just the speaker itself.
