Welding a brace would be the way to go, but again, I wanted to keep my car as stock as I could so out with the IB setup and in with a box.

I don't have any pictures, but if you have any questions about this, PM me.
That is exactly what I'm thinking about. PMing you.

Does anybody know of a sub that I can drop in without modding anything? I've been driving bass-less for a month now, it's crazy!

well...bumping this, just bought a 12" DLS sub. I need my trunk space back and rarely turn the volume up in the lexus...I'd rather hear the supercharger wine than the bass kick. Hopefully I made a good choice.

have a 10 Alpine sub that dropped in...do have a dedicated amp riding off the factory amp to push the sub. You can see the sub off to the right. I can take another photo of the sub in the deck (this photo was to sell the 4 ch amp)

How heavy is your alpine sub? I'm thinking of putting a 10" sub I have laying around in my rear deck but I think it may be too heavy.
