    I once fit a full Marshall stack in my 7 series BMW.
    It was either that or lose the deal on my 68 plexi. I got her in!!

    I fit my bad cat 4x12 (which is a bit larger then my framus or marshall was) in the trunk of my hyundai elantra. It's all about the way the trunk is configured; for what its worth the back seat thing works on all cars.

    WHY? A single 8" driver IN THE RIGHT BOX and a well made amplifier such as a JL Audio amp (250watt) will pin you to the dashboard! That's right an
    SINGLE 8" driver. I owned a high end audio chain for the last 35 years and sure we did outrageous 4x12 and and 3x12 installs for sports stars and local "recreational drug" dealers and the sound was absolutely nauseating......as if you were physically trapped inside a Marshall full stack at a rock concert. If that's the sound your after, go for it! I want to reiterate with not only a hearing loss warning but also to point out that we actually had clients physically blow out windshields with the driver arrangement you are contemplating!:NUTS

    I bet two 4 X 10" cabs would fit. They are a hell of a lot easier to deal with and a lot more of the audience would be able to hear you much better if you had one behind you and one on the other side of the drummer.

    Audis have deep trunks but some of them aren't super wide. Depending on the size of the 4x12, my guess is that it would fit with the back seats down. I have an S4 and I carry a pedal steel (in its huge case), a guitar, two amps, a keyboard, a big accordion, a glockenspiel, a pedal board and CDs to gigs and everything fits in there.

    i can fit a 4x12 in a brand new Infiniti G35X as well as a brand new Maxima SE

    Even with the nav and 6 cd things in the trunk, its easy.

    I used to be able to put it in my honda accord coupe.
