I'd be interested to see how they integrate this sub into the OEM harness too. 375$ isn't horrible. Funny though - the info I read before said the sub wasn't compatible w/ the trunk mat (yet the SOA picture shows it mounted w/ it).

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.

Yeah it looks like the 5 door option pretty much sucks.

You could order the audio integrations box for the hatch and an aftermarket sub...but it will be about 500 bucks.

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.

I responded to your other thread on this same question:

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.

I did order the trunk sub, but that was before I was sure about how it was mounted. I'm going to cancel that part and get the underseat sub instead.

I am too busy to do this, but can someone see about getting the install instructions?

I am hoping it is plug and play, no HU removal or carpet lifting required.
