Default g37 non bose sub install

Hello, just wondering if anyone has installed a sub in the rear parcel shelf in the g37 sedan. i have a 2011 g sedan but i have the non bose so im curious to see if any one has attempted to cut the deck lid and install a sub up there.

I have not heard of anyone doing that with the rear deck. Most people use a box in the trunk

I haven't had the car apart but my concern would be
(1) Supporting the weight of a heavy magnet (sub driver) and
(2) Noises, or rattles likely to be introduced via the parcel shelf design and mounting characteristics.
I also think the driver would be too far from reflective surfaces to yeild the proper sound waves for good accurate low end.

The box is specifically designed for accoutics, size and air volume and to be 'sound dead'.
I would not think of the rear shelf as the last option for a sub. If I could not set one up in the trunk, I'd go without.
There are some reputable name brand thin-mount designs out that fit along wheel wells or behind a seat like the Jeep Wangler if concerned about trunk - luggage space.

terrible idea.... only thing that would sound good would be an open air speaker... def use a box... JL makes a stealthbox that mounts under the carpet, for the coupe at least. not sure about the sedan
