Stealth sub boxes. Who's interested

Who's interested in a stealth sub box for the Versa? My V didn't come with the RF stereo system, and I for one would love to have a stealth box, so I had an idea this morning.. Why not make them myself? I have a decent amount of experience making boxes and I came up with a few ideas this morning for boxes built specifically for the Versa. I have a sedan of course, so the ideas all pertain to sedans, but if I got my hands on a Hatch, I could make something for that too.

Here's what I'm thinking: If there are enough people who have interest in this, I'll go ahead and do a little more research into cost and materials. After I figure out the cost I'll see who wants one and start building. The three designs I have are a wedge which would sit in the back of the trunk and not take up much space, a fiberglass box that would go in the wheel arch, which I believe is where the RF sub goes, and another fiberglass box in the spare tire well.

Here are the designs I came up with at work this morning:

The wedge would be simplest, and the cheapest. All MDF with rounded inside edges.
The wheel arch would be close behind and be easiest to ship since it will be small and all fiberglass
The spare tire well would obviously be HUGE and hard to ship, but if somebody really wanted one, I could do it. It would be the most expensive as well since it's a ton of fiberglass.

My goal is to make quality, affordable, and strong boxes that fit our cars. A lot of stealth boxes online go for 300+ and my goal is to do it for less than half that price. Nobody makes them for our car. So who's interested?

NOTE: drawings are not to scale so don't rag on them for looking off. I know they are. I did them at 5:30 AM at work.

I like the idea of the wedge simply due to the fact that no matter what you put in there the spare tire will be a pain in the butt to get to with almost any box and that seems to be the easiest. I've thought of making a custom cover for the spare with hinges near the seats so i could put a box up against the seats and lift the cover when i get a flat so i dont have to remove the whole setup. But then again I'm looking at two 12s to throw back there eventually, maybe those schnazzy 13.5 JLs they have on crutchfield... pricey but I'm considering them!
