    I am about to do the side panel sub set up, I am thinking at only using one sub and was considering putting it behind the spare tire (to add to security, cut down on its visibility). Any problems this might create? I know bass is not dependant on location, but I don't know if the spare in front would cause any problems.

    Look at the threads covering it here in the audio section, about 4 people have done it, w/ pics. There have been a couple of different subs used and spacing for them.

    I am not the one to answer to question as to whether the sub behind the spare will cause problems, but can answer the rest of your questions. There is aproximately 3.5" of space behind the side panels. Whether or not your sub will fit depends upon the depth of the sub. If properly sealed, there is enough airspace to accomodate most 10"-12" subs.
    Take a look at my web-site http://www.derf00.coloradok5.com or http://www.BlazzinOr.coloradok5.com

    The difference in these two installs is the thickness of the sidepanel materials, Frank used two 10's, I used one, and Frank put a spacer behind his subs. As you can see, you wouldn't know it was there if you didn't know it. I am running 1 10" sub on a RF 200a mono amp. If you turn up the volume, the single sub will shake ever loose part on your K5.

    Good luck, hope this helps.

    Sorry it took so ong to reply, No, putting the woofer behind the spare wont cause any problems!!! It should work just fine. Just make sure to check the excursion (how far the woofer moves out) so it doesnt rub the carrier.
