GI: JDP Super-Fantastic Custom Fit SUBWOOFER ENCLOSURE for GE8!

What's up guys!

We all know how awesomely practical our cars are. To add some THUMP but to keep the practicality, JDP has been working on a super-custom-fit subwoofer enclosure for our Fits!

Here are some key features:
***Custom fit: Developed specifically for GE8! No drilling holes because the enclosure is being developed to use existing holes for mounting!
***Space savings: The box will be tucked to the side and will utilize some unused volume on the passenger side of the trunk.
***No loss of function: JDP carefully designed this enclosure so you can still recline your rear seat back. You will also still be able to use the trunk cover if you have one.
***For 10" Subwoofer: This enclosure will be for a 10" sub with mounting depth of less than 5".
***Enclosure is ready for sub: High quality speaker connectors will be integrated to the enclosure, so throw in a sub and you're ready to rock!
***Excellent JDP Quality: Same excellent quality and finish as you've come to know with JDP.

Pricing TBD

If there's enough interest, this enclosure will go into production...so post up if you're interested or if you have any questions!

This picture is not of the completed product...it's just a working picture.

You can put your amp anywhere you want. Mount it to the back of the seats, in the spare tire well, on opposite side of the trunk...

This will probably be available for 10" sub only.

What he said!


Yes, yes, yes!

A guy made one locally to me, and it's amazing, sounds great, looks great, it's the super win! I have no skills necessary, and would love to pay a reasonable price to have someone w/ the knowledge and skills necessary and willing to do it, build one for me.

I'm in!
(price depending, of course)

Curious to know if your gonna use a mold for these and mass produce or make them individually, would let me know what to expect as for quality. Oh and I am just curious, my box is well MONSTROUS compared to that one.

A mold will be made if there is enough interest. In designing this enclosure, JDP has been very concerned about quality and fitment, so I think the quality should be second to none, once everything is done.

Mounting depth...there's about 5" clearance for a 10" subwoofer. Volume hasn't been determined yet, but it will be measured once the enclosure is finalized.

Actually no rattle I don't skimp when I do a system there's over $500 in sound deadener in the car, the rear wing does wang a bit but gonna deaden the mounting area of it this weekend.

With my old box I did this at 46Hz:



That is the NEW termlab btw, and I have yet to meter the new box which is louder. You can see my install log in my sig for the full install details.

Who is JDP?
(I should probably know this...)

Also, any idea of a time frame for this being 'market ready'?

John at JDP has made some nice parts for our fits, including front lip, rear spoiler, etc.

I'm not sure when the box will be ready. I'll continually check with John, but I don't imagine that it would take too long because most of the work is done already.
