Very similar to what I have been thinking about for my 88. I was thinking about reverse mounting my sub horizontal and stuffing the magnet up under the dash, then i could keep my volume chamber low and port out the back. It will just be an old Volfenhagen sub on a American Audio amp (Pyramid?) so I don't expect it to win any awards; though the 800watts RMS (lets be real here, maybe 500 watts) should make up for some of it.

I would like to see more updates on this since I'm planning on building a console for my project car and need some tips and tricks. I'm also very curious on how you're going to cover it.

That's a good idea.. go for it if that's what u want... I didn't go that route b/c I'll be putting a double din radio in the console so I'll need the space behind it for wiring as well as the sub amp, power inverter for 110, and a couple other things.. I haven't worked on the console in a while.. but im hoping to start again't in a couple weeks with the final console build..

No updates yet.. I hope to start on final console build in a couple weeks.. I'll be covering in vinyl (faux leather look) material with a couple accent features to hide any unwanted seams..

As long as you have kept the regular speakers idea, are you supposed to wire them to the front speaker or the main line for its side. Also, can you splice the wire from the front/rear to connect it to the console speaker? Your build got me thinking maybe a future build of my own

If talking about the 6.5s I'm putting in the console, then yes.. they will be wired as front speakers. But power will not be coming from head unit.. speakers will have their own amp.

This build has been very fun.. and anyone I believe would love the result of replacing the tiny stock console.. but build to your needs and wants..

Awesome looking console!! When you do the cover, will it be water proof? Just something to think about in case of "accidental spills" of the coffee variety

Thanks.. it will be yes.. I'll resin the entire console before I wrap in vinyl.. the vinyl itself is pretty waterproof, but the resin is just extra assurance..

Yup.. I used a large piece cut to the rough shape I wanted.. sat it in there and glued small pieces onto it to get exact shape needed..
