Yeah it looks like the 5 door option pretty much sucks.Can somebody put that picture into perspective for me? Where exactly is that sub mounted? I'm getting a 5-door, and it looks like it's mounted to the back of the rear seat. Are you still able to fold the seat flat with the sub there? How does that work with the seat folded down?
Agh. I'm getting a 5-door because I need the space. It's not going to help me if there's a subwoofer taking up space in the middle of the rear cargo area when the seats are folded down.
I responded to your other thread on this same question:Just got off the phone with my local subaru dealer, and I had talked to another one yesterday. This guy today seemed pretty helpful and actually had an accessories listing that showed the sub so he described it to me.
He said that in the 5-door, this new kicker sub does in fact mount to the floor at the back of the rear seat on the driver's side, so that when you fold down the rear seats it's just sort of free standing there. It's mounted differently in the 4-door, and ironically it's much more out of the way.
I'm not sure if I can get this option now, because if it's just sort of free standing on the floor after you fold the seats down, that basically ruins the amount of cargo space available. I mean I am going to be loading a drum set in there, so I can't have a free standing sub taking up space.
Yeah, as my sales guy told me about it as I was putting the order in. However right now I'm trying to find out how it's mounted. If it infringes on the cargo space in the rear, it's not going to do me any good. So far one Subaru service guy has told me it mounts to the side of the rear compartment but I can't see how. The sides of the rear on the 5 door models are just wheel wells. Calling other service depts. now to see if I can get some kind of consensus on this.
The parts dept. just called me. Alot of these are in Indianapolis, dont ask me why, and 10-20 are slated to go on port arrivals, but there are enough that I should get mine next week?are these in stock yet? went to my dealer 2 weeks ago and they were on back order
