Default Anyone else have success mounting a 12' sub on the GS rear deck?

I'm going through a stereo system upgrade and am adverse to boxing my sub because of space limitation in my trunk. In doing some research I came across a really innovative build where Debonair built a 12 inch baffle to space his free air sub for use on the rear deck using the 10 inch opening (https://www.clublexus.com/forums/lex...ucho-pics.html).

My question is:

Has anyone had success in mounting a 12' sub on a 2nd Gen rear deck?

I did a 10inch to stock location and it rattled like crazy. Ended up getting a small box for sx10. Dynamated the whole trunk for zero rattle bass.
Try PMing Cliff - oohpapi44. he also had a 12inch ED in stock spot(2nd page on that install thread).

why not have a box built to mount under the back dash that is sealed around the opening for the stock sub, then run a good dvc 10in sub in the stock location? im doing this for my ls400 for an 8in sub in the stock location.

I have a strut tower bar in the back what makes it near to impossible create any box. Does sound like a really good resolution if I didn't run a bar.
