    Default KW181 - Fit in car?

    Any KW181 owners out there??

    I am buying a set of k12's and a KW181 tomorrow. (YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    However, I am not able to get a hold of someone with a van or pickup and wanted to know if the sub would fit in my car. I own a 2003 Acura TL Type S.

    I highly doubt it would fit in the car while it's boxed, but I am hoping it fits without the box. (Front Seat, Rear Seat, Trunk??). I don't want to waste a trip because it did not fit in the car.



    Can anyone help me?

    Find the measurements of the sub, then get a box the same size (or just a measuring tape) to see if it will fit. Most likely, your best bet will be the front seat. I have an EV Live X 18" sub, and it just BARELY fits in the front seat of my Honda Civic Coupe... but it fits.

    Thanks, Brock. I'll try it today before I make the trip. I'm afraid I don't have a box that. Just going to check with a measuring tape.

    You could mock up something with cardboard. That's what I did when I was planning my current sound system. Tape measures really don't give the picture of the whole box at once.

    Alternatively, you could run to your local home improvement megamart and rent a pickup for a couple hours...or hit up any car rental place for a pickup, minivan, or cargo van. For <$40 you would have no worries.

    yo....did it fit???

    I had thought about investing in a mini sub (EV) to go with my tops, figured that would the only sub that would fit in a 2 door car. If you could get that to fit, that would be impressive man.

    So are you doing some mobile gigs now?

    KW181 should fit in your back seat. I put it in the back of my mazda 626 and a Saturn sl200 before I got my SUV.
