      I was thinking about having a pole fitted for the wife to dance round, do I need to swap the headlining for mirrors?

          That's because a hatch just has a thin parcel shelf between the cabin and boot, compared to a saloon which is much more isolated.

            Cabs are always a problem as the boot area is usually sealed off by a steel bulkhead, The simple solution is to use a much more powerful amplifier and sub combination to allow the sound to carry through to the rest of the car.

            The old way to do it was to cut holes in the bulkhead but i would advise against this as it cuases chassis strength issues with the cab

                the parcel shelf is steel but the back of the seats there is a gap wot sort of power would it need to be?

                  How big is the gap, a very good trick is to build a custom bandpass box where the vented part of the box will be directly over that gap, this will direct the sound into the car, you would need to remove a section of the steel backing from the seat that covers this area also as that would just deflect the sound into the boot.

                  Another thing to consider is Dynamat, this will greatly reduce roadnoise and help to keep soundwaves inside the car.
