Hi all maybe a strange question , myself and the misses are a duo me on guitar and wife singing , we have recently bought some active 15" EV speakers which sound pretty good on there own but a whole lot better with a sub . My question is our 15 inch sub is just a little too big in depth to fit in our car so do you think it would be ok to trim it down a bit by maybe 4 inches in depth so it could then fit in our car ? would it alter the sound of the sub a lot ? I hope this makes sense .

I wouldn't recommend it. The sub's cabinet was designed to make it function as efficiently as possible, and physically altering it might affect its performance — and will definitely affect its resale value. Perhaps a better approach would be to sell it and replace it with a smaller model. Or, you could always get a roof rack for your car. ;)
