Where to Put Sub

Ok new to the forum, not new to owning the cobalt... 05 4dr sport package, but finally decided to spruce it up a bit with a new system, seeing as its hopefully going to be my DD for a while.

I am putting in a 12'' infinity (along with other items for the system) but just wondering if its better to put the sub above the wheel well to save space or right up against the back seat (not allowing me to be able to use the full fold down option)
well give me any advice on install and opinions on where to put it... thanks!

I live on something called a "six mile long dirt road" so my car isn't as pretty as most of yours :(

^^^wat happens when u get a flat? lol

i like my just basic box against the seats in the back, only cuz it gives t he subs plenty of breathing room. thats really big on how they will end up sounding, and sound is most important to me, not looks.

dude holy poop.... Haha... Really.... His boxes have LED's inside them too bro. Hey AllGoodCustoms.... How do they sound? I pm'd you before and you said they sounded fine, but I'm really worried about them rattling around in the trunk if you really love bass like I do and crank it up..... Like I said, those boxes seem super tiny compared to the speakers you have in em... You sure they don't jump around n rattle? Can I get a copy of your rough drafts/sketches scematics if they really are that good?

if you are good at fab work go with either allgoodcustoms' or golfin's style for sure. the should have plenty of room killarowa. i very well could be wrong, but it looks like theyre ported and have decent enough space
