    Have you looked on ebay? I got one from there a few years ago.

    Yes but the only compact ones that come up are active ones which come with the sub. I just want the empty box. What was the one you got like?

    The one I got was a wedge shape, I'd recommend the wedge as they're more stable in the boot and make use of that bit of dead space behind the seats.
    You're right though the empty ones like this are slightly bigger by about 1" in each direction.

    Have you considered making one or having one made? I know CaraudioCentre used to make them to order (many years ago) but I don't know what they charged.

    Have you thought about a 10" instead?
    A well sorted 10 can sound amazing in a small car.

    I've made a few in the past so may do another. I've already got the 12" sub plus I know a 10" will be no match for a 12" :D

    Try The Bass Factory on 01902 458010
    They make custom sizes boxes and not very expensive iirc. I used them last in 2005
