Where have ya'll installed subs in your blazers
Keep your feet dry
Go back through some of the older post and you will find where some of the guys put them in there panels... The only ones I can think of at the moment are http://www.blazzinor.coloradok5.com/photo.html and
http://www.derf00.coloradok5.com/photo2.html both of theres look pretty sharp....I put a set of 8in in my panels this past week end and had plenty of room... With a set of 10s you will probably have to have a spacer...
i got mine 2 10inch subs in a box in my rear, check out the pics on my webpage.

I did the 10"ers in my side panels...............site below has pics. I did need a spacer, but they look good.
ONe note - they don't "pound" like a true box would but I am not 25 anymore and don't need the intense 30hz thump. Do pretty good and no space is taken up back there..............I might actually put a pair of 8"ers in a box under my front seats..........my Flofits have a frame that would only need a slight modification to make a box work. Plenty of room, and I would get a nice thump out of them. Had a pair of Seas (anyone remember or hear of them?) 8" in a Datsun pickup mounted under my seats years ago, and with the right box, an 8" speaker can pound pretty darn good.

I chose to install the sub in the side panels because I did not want to give up any more floor space to a box. I did however, build an air tight box for the sub. I calculated the air space behind the panel and installed verticle pieces for the end of the box. The side panel is the front of the box. I sealed all joints with silicone and the duramat and used an acoustic filler. The sub doesn't care what the shape of the box is if the volume is correct. As far as I am concerned the one sub is enough to rattle your teeth and shake all the glass.
did you have to use a spacer? They look really nice!

No, I did not use a spacer, the carpet was just enough to keep it off the fender.
Do you have the specs for the size needed for the enclosure? I saw the basic size in your pics, but I would like to know the exact specs you used.
Also I am looking at only using one sub and was thinking of 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.
The exact dimensions will depend upon the cu ft of airspace required for optimum operation of your sub. My 8" sub required about .5 cu ft of air space. I have 3.5" of space behind the side panel, to get the the required air space I place a verticle piece of MDF in the middle of the wheelwell. I did carefully calculate the space and used a tape measure and a calculator to be exact.
You need to ask some of the audio experts on this site about putting your sub behind the spare tire.
