No, it was concealed. I made a console which fit over the small hump, carpeted to match the interior carpet. The sub was mounted under the console (which was raised slightly), firing downward. That way, the bass hits the floor, then radiates outward and up, so it's diffused and not slamming the occupants directly. It was such a tight squeeze that the edge of the speaker frame was less than 1/8" from the outside wall of the box. Still waiting for the guy to take pics, if/when he does, I'll pass them along.
