it would be easier if u attach your amp the back of your rear seats. if done right will look nice and clean.

Simply mounting the sub on a ply shelf will not work.
My last sub build was for the under floor storage area in the boot of a S-Max.
I took a fibreglass moulding from the car to build the enclosure and a lid made from MDF.

Yeah you want to do something like that, Before you go diving in to take the mould of your boot put some foil down first, stops the fibreglass sticking to the body then.

You haven't got an air cannon on that? are you sure its gonna hold with all that pressure building up?
It's not designed to be ported.
Although the subs used can accept a ported enclosure, the bass sounds tighter when sealed. It provided 1.5 years of trouble free service before I sold the car.

Thanks you guys!! I was thinkin of simply attaching the amp under the drivers seat as I drop the rear seats ALOT! I do like the fibreglass moulding! Is it cheap n easy to do
You can buy large fibreglass kits from specialist suppliers online.
The important part is to make sure your mould is watertight as any fibreglass that seeps through and touches your car interior is going to permanently damage it.
I normally line the interior with at least 3 to 4 layers of thick masking tape in a criss-cross pattern, then apply a layer of foil, then spray the mould with the Mrs. expensive hairspray (this acts as a release agent).
When the hairspray is dry, layer strips of fibreglass matting with fibreglass resin again in a criss-cross pattern and flatten with a metal roller.
When the fibreglass has hardened remove it from the car.
Also be aware that using a wheel-well is going to limit the size of the subwoofer considerably. Shallow mount types are going to be your best option here and make sure your enclosure is big enough for the subs minimum rated air space.
