Idea Spider Audio Question

I have a 1999 Spider and I am in the process of redoing the audio system. I wanted to know if any of you Spider owners have opted to put a sub in the compartment between the seats where the stock 8" speaker is. I wanted to know if this is a pretty good place to put the subwoofer. Thanks for your help.

Re: Spider Audio Question

The standard sub is a pathetic piece of kit and an upgrade is always a good option.

You probably won't find a quality direct replacement.

I bought a Pioneer TS-WX11A Compact Active Sub and fitted it in the space in front of the battery under the hatch (you'll need to take out the carpet to see where I mean, I strapped it to the bulk head you'll find there). It comes with a remote volume control and low pass filter to help balance it against your front speakers. Gives plenty of bass for me!

...a completely stealth install and you won't loose any cubby hole space.

Re: Spider Audio Question

You can get a 6.5" sub - JLL? which is good - theres plenty of space for an amp either in the cubby hole area or behind a seat. If you want to sell the car on again, I'd keep the install discrete as Nwelch has done. Best bet first is new head unit and componants in the door, Ive done that and have no need for a sub just yet, the sound is so much better and the bass would drown out the engine!!

Lukes ICE install is the best for advice do a search on it.
