Question cutting the rear decklid

I was wondering if I cut the rear decklid to mount my sub (1 10" in a box) between the 6X9s would this effect the ridigity (safety) of my car.

If I do this I am going to fiberglass the entire top and bottom to smooth everything up and provide support.

Hey firedogg,

I don't think that cutting a 10" hole in the center of your rear shelf is going to put your safety at risk.

Some may say that firing the 10 off of your rear glass will sound bad though

I do not think it will greatly weaken the car. My new 300 has a hole in the deck for a 8" sub woofer. The 300C's with the Boston sound system have them installed from the factory. I am thinking of doing the same on my Trep.

I have a 8" sub in the rear deck, just enough room for it. just don't cut into the supports and it should be fine.

I ran it free air. I used it just to give a little more bass. I like it and will be upgrading it to a better 8" and I will seal it up. If you really want bass then You would need to go larger. I do not want a sub in the trunk is the main reason for it's location.
