D90 Rear Door Sub-woofer panel

I have a 97 d90 soft top. I am looking for a rear door sub-woofer panel. I believe it was an option in 97. Anyone know if it is still available or know of a used one?

I have one... Love it. It sounds great. I did have to change the factory speaker a few years back, but bought a kenwood one from a pawn shop, and it works great. It is an 8" sub, so it can be hard to find a replacement, but you could always re-cut the hole to take a 10".

David, check ebay and/or call george at Rovers Down South.

My ST has it, and it makes a huge difference. Totally worth it IMO. I put a 4ohm JL audio in as a replacement. It really completes the system.

I think it makes a difference in the sound for sure. I have one installed on my truck. I find that I don't listen to the stereo as much any more when driving the truck - it is no longer my daily driver and is usually taken on shorter drives.

I will tell you this - the D-90s storage area is short as we know......the rear door sub wolfer takes up a few inches of interior room. Everytime I have to carefully pack something into the car because of the sub-wolfer.......I say I am going to sell mine.

I am not quite there yet - but that is by far my biggest complaint - not the sound which I think is fine.......

If you decide to part ways with it, let me know. I agree with the storage issue, but if I need to haul something around I use the pickup.

On a side note, I took mine out and had it Line X'd. Now it will last forever and it can get wet. I noticed that the laminated material was coming apart before I got it done, but the Line X solved the problem.

I wonder why they didn't get that box Line X'd. It seems like they go the extra mile on everything they do, so it just seems like they would have thought of that.

I know, so does mine. Water still gets into it through the top and into the sound port on the side.
Mine had previous water damage and I thought I was going to have to trash it, the particleboard soaked up water like a sponge even with the factory cover on it, but now that can't happen.

My rear speaker boxes were crap until I had them Line-x'd. Thinking about having the door panels line-x'd from the inside, but first adding a reinforced plate along the screw holes. They can mix the line-x stuff so that it doesnt have the rough/sand paper texture to it, but I'm still undecided. Not sure how much extra weight it would add.

My doors are line-x'd on the inside for sound deadening. It makes them close nice and positively. I wanted it to seal the gap at the bottom to keep water from entering the door frame from the inside, but that only worked on one side.

Good to know! Is there anything you would have done different? Anything that you did special before line-x'ing?

Muddy Oval,

I will let you know if I ever decide to see mine. I have been close a few times. Right now I am just going to let things ride.............

I am the original owner of this truck. However one of my best friends owned it for 4 years in the middle of its life. He installed the sub-wolfer. It is a really clean look - so I have just left it be, but have often wished I had the space instead..........

How hard is it to take off? I have not really looked at this.................How much are they worth?

Removal requires you to take a lot of screws out of the spare tire carrier. Once it is gone, you would lose the black plastic cover that goes with the subwoofer as well. Other than that, you would have to take out your radio and unplug the connection for the subwoofer. It's not that hard, but it would take you a couple of hours probably to get it apart and everything back together. If you don't want it gone, then I'd leave it.

Shawn,

Thanks for the advice. It is not bugging me that much. I remember my back door without the plastic panel, before my friend installed the sub-wolfer. It is a nice finished look now, and it does work well. For now I will leave it alone.

BUT - if I finally hit the breaking point where it has to go - I will contact you first!

Thanks,

Flagg
