Hey All,

This is a short walkthrough on how to "vent" your rear deck for better bass transfer from your aftermarket subwoofer.

This will give far superior response in the upper register of the low-end frequencies and provide increased "percieved" accuracy.

You'll get better a better percieved transient as well (ie pop, think bass drum/guitar) and the bass will be truer to the music.

It's a must have in my opinion.

This one was done on hutru01's LGT (Miracle Whip) (mine is also flushmounted ).

I apologize for the lack of stock shots (and maybe a few others) it was a busy project weekend and I do the best I can to record the events to share with all of you fine folks.


Here are a couple of links to the other recent project on hutru's MW:

Well, here's the walkthrough and feel free to query.


EDIT: THERE IS A FACTORY PLATE WITH TWO SCREWS THAT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED ONCE THE DECK IS OUT (it's a big black circle, you can't miss it).


Mock Flushmount walkthrough added in post #12.


































You'll no longer need to open the "skihole" for the bass to transfer properly from the trunk. But you also have the option of having both open (Skihole = low, "rolling" bass, Deck Vent = Clean tighter bass, Both = )





It really does make a HUGE difference.........................Clean Bass, mmmmmmmmm, tasty.




Let me know if you need any help or clarification.
