Even better only if you buy the vehicle at a junkyard.

Is there a benefit to making a wall?

Can you build a wall behind the c pillars for a hatch area? I'd still like to use the back seats just in case but I want this sucker to be loud. And in all fairness, the car only KBBs at about $1300. I'd say its one major repair away from the junkyard anyhow.

If I make a false floor for the extra batt in the boot I could Wall of from the behind back seat. That way when no one is sitting back there or free of bags, groceries, etc I could lay the seats down and get the effect of a wall. Sort of. Idk, i've never built anything this large but I know i can. Just need a lil direction ;)

Just insane bass I guess. Maybe I'll wait until I get something more suitable for that. Prob just gonna go behind the backseat and do what i can from there

Because if built properly, they keep the big bad wolf from huffing and puffing and blowing your house in.

 

Duh!

The wall itself has nothing to do with that and generally for the space used walls have less bass than a well built enclosure.

Thoughts on this crossover design for evil mid and tweeter, both are 8ohms.

Bookshelf speaker build.

 

2nd Order Linkwitz-Riley

2500 Hertz

8 Ohm Tweeter / 8 Ohm Woofer

Capacitors
C1 = 3.98 uF
C2 = 3.98 uF
Inductors
L1 = 1.02 mH
L2 = 1.02 mH

Curious why you picked 2500Hz

...and where these are going.

Any way of testing what sounds good to you?  ie, anything you can use for an active crossover first?

A few reasons this will be helpful.

1) Active ignores impedance so you can just set it and be golden in the range

2) You can play over and over with baffle compensation and with your baffles in particular that will be helpful

3) You can experiment without spending money, generally speaking an active crossover will be cheaper than its analog counterpart anyways.  If you have 10 iterations of analog then you are out a ton of cash for what could have been done easily active

 

...I could go on

Finally got the money saved up for sound deadening. I'll be able to create a build log as soon as it arrives :)
