This manual explains only the basic installation of the subwoofers—not the techniques required to perform the installation. If you do not have the experience that these procedures require, we strongly suggest you consult your Boston Acoustics dealer about professional installation.
Building an Enclosure Use at least ⁄ -inch MDF to build the enclosure (1-inch is preferable). The joints should be liberally glued with car- penter’s wood glue and screwed together with wood screws and sealed internally with a bead of silicone rub- ber or hot melt glue.
Locating Subwoofer Enclosure in Vehicle The placement of the enclosure is one of the most important factors concerning installation. As each vehi- cle’s interior acoustics are different, experimentation is the key to optimizing performance. Hatchbacks/Sport Utility Vehicles Locate the enclosure in a rear corner for maximum out- put.
Sedans Provide as clear a path as possible into the cabin by venting through a folded-down arm rest, venting through the rear deck, or venting through an unused speaker opening in the rear deck. Keep any restrictive materials such as wood, hard plastic or metal from directly block- ing the subwoofer.
