Heading out on a road trip and found a used 4x12 cab on Kijiji, but I'm not sure that it will fit in the trunk or back seat of a 4 door civic (2005 or 2006). Anyone know if it will fit or not?

If the back seat will lay down into the trunk I would wager yes.

Get the dimensions online and measure your tunk

Well if it was a cardboard box, I know it'd fit the trunk, but I'm pretty sure the Mesa wouldn't be nearly as flexible!

My friend used to put his line6 half stack in his 97 Acura Integra.
Would have done better on the roof. Unlatched. Transported on the Interstate going 85mph. You'd get it to your destination in much better condition.

Anyway, I drive a Mazda Protege5 and I am able to transport not just my stack but my pedalboard and 2 guitars. No backseats, though.

And this retard actually had the nerve to say that a half stack "can't fit into anything smaller than a pickup or a minivan": http://www.wikihow.com/Choose-a-Guitar-Amplifier-for-Rock-Music Oh yeah, I still have my hearing, and I don't use earplugs when I play my amp. Volume knobs do great things.

My girlfriend drove an '07 Civic 2 door, I couldn't imagine fitting a cab in that thing. The back seat should fold down, though it's a bitch to do since the latch is located inside the truck on the back of the seat. If you can get the seat down you should be able to fit the cab.

We literally fit an entire band into a Crown Vic once. 2 fullsize halfstacks, a bass combo, a Dean case (these are MASSIVE), Flying V case, and an Iceman, Washburn Bass, and a complete drumset. And 4 big guys. Sure you couldn't see out the back window and the front passenger (me) had a bass drum to keep him warm, but you gotta do what'cha gotta do sometimes.

Well in case anyone else needs to know in the future, in a 4 door 2006/2007 civic, the 4x12 cab will fit in the trunk Had to put the casters pointing to the side. Could have removed them and it would have fit straight in with the slant side first. The guy I bought it from didn't think it would fit, but the civic had room to spare

Sell your amp, sell your car.

Get the Volkswagen with the built in First Act amp.

I got a truck.

But..I have had a 4x12 in the back of a 1980 Toyota Tercel.
And a pedal board.
It ain't easy though.
Put passenger seat all the way forward, or backward if it lays flat.

And NOT on the roof of your car, unless it has a VERY STURDY roof rack.
And lots of tie downs.

the first thing is that i drive a Pontiac Trans-Am WS6, i built the motor put a 9" rear on it insane clutch, and drag suspenion, . and it runs in the mid-low 12's, not at all handeling equipment friendly. every time i bring a tube head in there i practically freak out because of how rough the car rides.

enough on that, its not an auto forum.

what i have found that fixed my issues however is the Orange PPC212OB, i can fit one of those, a head, two guitars and a pedal board in my car. if i really needed to i could maybe haul my second 212OB in addition to that, but that would be hard.

those cabs are really friendly because they are narrower than a 4x12 and just a little bit taller than a traditional horizontal 2x12".

i dont know what sound you are going for, but even if it was more for hauling gear to practice, the convience is worth it. if i didn't have that cab, i would have to take another vehicle to fit my cabinet in.

You are correct, it was my experiments in large scale quantum teleportation that allowed me to transport the 4x12 cab 430km. It was not due to the fact that the cab would fit in the trunk of a civic.

Just yesterday I traded my Mesa 4x12 and we were able to fit the cab in the trunk of a Toyota Corolla.

(P.S. I wonder what happened to my signature.....)
