Here is how I installed my Pioneer TS-WX22A Subwoofer in the boot.

Pioneer TS-WX22A

Here is the place I am going to install the sub. It's on the right side of the spare tire right in the corner.

The instruction say that you have to screw the frame of the sub into the car floor but I don't think that such a good idea. I have no idea what's under that floor. So I took a piece of wood and fixed the brackets of the sub on it. I am going to glue the wooden panel to the floor.

Here is the bracket.

Just checking if I have to right placement.

Here the wooden panel is glued and the floor fabric is covering the whole thing. You can see the screws that fix the subwoofer sticking out of the fabric.

All done. The wires come from the back see wires post to see how that's done.

    How does this subwoofer sound because it looks very small and compact to me. Doesn't look as if its going to hold out on heavy bass notes.

    How does this subwoofer sound because it doesn't look very big so as to not reproduce the big bass notes very nicely?

    Don't expect to get a super base sound but it is not bad at all, I was surprised how good it was.

    What type of glue did you use to glue it to the floor of the car ?
    Guido said...
    A silicon kit. The one from a tube. super strong and if you ever need to get the sub out of the car you can just cut it because it stays soft.

    hey guido! nice work you do here, great :)
    maybe you can help me. i have the same subwoofer as you, connected yellow to battery, black to the ground, blue to my JVC radio and chinch to chinch. it just doesnt work, my subwoofer is not starting. it started 1 time when i first turned my key 2 times for 1sec, but from then the 'power' light never turned on again. i really dont know what to do, you have an idea??

    Have you checked the fuse on the yellow wire that goes to your battery?

    Did you switch it off on the remotecontrol?

    Do you have to active the woofer in your radio?

    Let me know how you are doing.

    Hi Guido,

    I installed a powered sub in the same location but I'm not getting any power to it.

    I think it must be the ground as I have checked and rung the power side. I probably chose a bad place to ground (under the right latch for the rear seat).

    Can you tell me where you connected your ground in the boot area? It will save me a ton of time trying to find a new place to ground it.

    Thanks

    used the exact same location. Check if the fuse is still ok.
    flyor64 said...
    Thanks, I'll check the fuses again...

    Since we used the same location, can I ask did you ground the paint significantly? I ran a small grinding wheel around the bolt hole but it's possible that I did not remove enough of the paint to secure a good ground there. Your thoughts?

    thanks

    I didn't grid anything away, it works just fine for me. is there a fuze on the wire? Mine had but also one on the same wire right close to the battery. I gues you have to check the whole wireing again. Send me some pictures when your done.
    flyor64 said...
    I will definitely send you some pics when I'm done...if I ever get it done. :)

    Can I connect this subwoofer to the standard radio without having an amplifier? The local hifi dealer says yes, but what is your opinion? I have a C1.

    i-sotec does make a custom subwoofer for under the seat (and a complete set with amplifier):
