Hi guys would anyone think about taking the heater out of their run around to put a 10in sub in as in the title? Rest of the system is dash mounted 2 way 6in. Pioneer odr head and processor and pioneer prs a500 amps.

All depends on how low the midrange drivers on the dash play and work at there best, down firing works great for sub bass a little les good for midbass to have it on axis could have the sub to play a bit higher. 

 

If possible make some room and a small sealed box and try it out!

Or have enclosures on each door for kick-subs, which you'll need more than a single, mono front sub if your midbass drivers are on the dash.

All depends on how low the drivers on the dash will play, with teh right driver in the right enclosure they can play lower but most setups won't do a lot below 100hz on the dash... 

 

You have some pictures and or more info about the setup?

Small 12v heater with fan. No problem. I understand the 2 way will crossover at about 100hz but was thinking the sub could cross at 80 and we'd be good to go? I dont have pics we're way off that. Lol

The difficult thing is to get the midbass right, and you want stereo as low as possible... 

 

If you havent got the dash drivers playing I would first make it that far they are playing and then try some thing with the front sub, to get the best out off your system the only way is to test things and listening to it first at least that's the way I do it.

Tonny always has a car with a system to a great standard, I'd listen to his advice on this one.
