    I know this was on here but its been a few years since the topic. I have an 08 prius and I have 2 10" JL audio subs. I need a new enclosure but i wanted to see if there was any stealth options. I would prefer this.

    So what say you

    Well.. I mean you could utilize the area under the trunk. If you take out the black cargo tray and the spare tire, I'm sure you could create a custom enclosure.

    If you are good with fiberglass then you can make your own. Short of that you could pick up a ported box that fits a single 10 or 12. I got tired of the large box I used for my dual 12 s so I went with a single Orion 12 inch ported enclosure. It's not stealthy but it left me more usable room and is quite loud.

    I'm not sure the right cubby hole has enough cubic feet for a 10" because underneath it there is the battery. The left side cubby hole you can get away with it if you take off the cover and utilize the space underneath it.

    The only true stealth option for 2 10" subs would be under the cargo area floor. Cubby's are not 'stealth' in my opinion. Lose the tray and replace it with a custom enclosure, maybe even replace the floor panel like I did. Rattles can be dealt with if they come up (I've had none) and firing through the floor panel has no impact on the sound.
