Stereo & Electronics - Need tips for subthump stealthbox install
02-25-2006, 08:29 PM
I'm having all kinds of trouble getting my driver and passenger side stealth boxes to fit in and look right. Just wondering if anyone out there had put some in before and had any hints/tips/suggestions.

On the driver side you need to take out the little peice of carpet and then shove it in. Its a tight fit. Didnt do the passenger side, thats where the nitrous bottle lives. Of course take off the platics panels first

Check out subthump.com. They're a sponsor. As for my original question, the boxes are all whompa-jawed and pretty much attached to nothing, just wondering how everyone else mounted them.

shove the box in the hole and thats it. Its a very tight fit and shouldnt fall out.

My passenger side subthump also just dropped in. No screws required. 01 SS Vert.

I had trouble installing the driver side stealth box. Once I removed the carpet and cut off the CD Changer stud, the box went in like butter. The passenger side fits really well with little effort. Just cut the trim panel with a hacksaw with a fine blade. This does not tear up the panel and make a nice clean cut. I am not using any mounting hardware and the boxes do not move at all.

I had to jam in my box. just a little finess and muscle. lol, but yea after some time it is in there tight and the plastic side thing holds it in place nicely

On the passenger side, what parts of the panel do you trim off?

The trim panel that hides the spare tire. I have a pic in my sig and it is a simple task.

mine was covered with grey carpet

Mine came ported from Subthump. Maybe that piece of MDF was to cover it?
