2018 VW Tiguan SEL Premium

Discussion Starter · #1 ·
Hello all, so I am putting together a system from the ground up in my 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL premium. I will be removing the third row of seats as well as the spare tire, so I have a bit of room back there. I I'm going to be working with some installers to do some interior custom fabrication. I have two 12-in Focal subwoofers (K2 Power E 30 KX) that will each have a JL HD 750/1 powering it. Would there be any benefit to having both of these subwoofers in the same enclosure, AKA a dual sealed or ported enclosure, versus having each subwoofer in its own enclosure (aside from space saving)? I kind of like the idea of having the subs inseparate enclosures, one on each side of the cargo space, but Im still early in the planning phase. I can't find much info on having dual versus separate enclosures, only info on sealed versus ported. Any help would be great. Here's a full list of thr hardware going in to this system:
Head unit: OEM Head unit
Line Level and DSP: AudioControl DM-810
Cabin Speaker Amp: Focal FDP 6.900
Front Stage: Focal ES 165 KX3
Rear speakers: Focal ES 165 KX2
Subs: 2x Focal K2 Power E 30 KX
Sub amps: 2x JL Audio HD 750/1

Another question I have is about installing the three-way component front stage speakers, as my vehicle currently only has space for a woofer and a tweeter. The speakers come with a mid-range and Tweeter pod to mount somewhere, but I'm wondering if being in a tiny sort of flimsy pod would affect the quality of the mid-range driver sound (vs fabricating a new spot in the door somewhere, oh which I forgot to mention will have dynamat door kits installed). How much appreciate any help with these questions, or any of the thoughts on my system as I am just now starting to plan it as I finally received all the parts. Thanks!
