Cerwin Vega spare tire subwoofer

I installed a 12" powered Cerwin Vega subwoofer to replace the crappy stock Bose sub. It's only a little taller than the stock sub. I had an 8" powered sub

Default Cerwin Vega spare tire subwoofer

I installed a 12" powered Cerwin Vega subwoofer to replace the crappy stock Bose sub. It's only a little taller than the stock sub. I had an 8" powered sub behind the drivers seat but this thing blows it out of the water.

Innnteresting. Had no idea there was a product for this.

Is that the sport sized spare? If so, I'm ordering one today.

I didn't know there was anything like this either. I just stumbled across it. Yep, it's the sport spare. I ordeted mine from sonic electronix, had it in a few days. Part # is VPAS 12ST

Wow!! That looks awesome! I put so much work into my little custom build, but this looks kind of perfect.

Does the trunk trim/carpet/foam stuff all fit properly?

The enclosure you did came out awesome and doesn't use up any of your trunk space.

This sub sticks up maybe 3/8" higher than the bose did but when you put all the trim and carpet back down it feels completly flat. It really couldn't have fit any better. I figured I was going to have to take out the spare tire in order to install it.

The fact it fits so well in the factory spare definitely sold me, I couldn't get myself to give up the cargo space. Looks like I'll finally install my sound deadening too this weekend so I can put this in at the same time.

Stoked to free my doors of playing those frequencies, should make it all sound much better. Thanks for sharing.

What length of 8 gauge did you need to run? Like 10 feet? Thanks

Yeah, I didn't want to give up what little trunk space we have either. I'm really surprised how well the sub works, it exceeded my expectations. I bought 20' of 8 gauge but didn't use all of it. 10' wouldn't have done it.

Yeah something like that. Shipped and sold from a different vendor.. perhaps we generated a mini-flood of orders and they ran their stock out.

At the time you posted it, it showed 7 in stock. I hope we get kickbacks for the advertising.
