    I finally got the new sub box installed and complete. I also installed the Extang RT Tonnaeu cover. I was worried about the quality and how sturdy it might be but after installing it I am very impressed with this soft cover.

    I took it to the car was today and it only leaked slightly where there is a gap between the tailgate and the body of the truck. The cover also came with thier tailgate seal for free which should fix that problem.

    I purchased the cover from AutoAnything for $377 - free shipping - free tailgagte seal.

    Lookin good man! Thats a crazy sub box set up! I've always wanted to see your setup! So that box funnels the air and noise through your bed and into your cab?

    Yes....it has to chambers...there are ports in each chamber. The ports extend into the cab. Inbetween the cab and bed the ports have that accordian rubber boot around them like what you would have between a camper shell and the cab of the truck.

    My first box had two 8" Kicker L7s....this time I upgraded to two 12" JL Audio W3s. This box is slightly larger and I had them do a plexiglass front and some Red LED lights in the box.

    Is there a big difference in sound? What gave you the idea of that setup?

    The box is what they call a 7 th order box......who first designed that type of box should be given a medal of some sort!

    This box is extremely efficient....you could have half the power of someone with the same subs and be louder....alot louder. When I was picking up the truck thee was another customer with an avalanche with two kicker L7 12s.....my installer brought him out to hear my truck.

    After he heard it he told me my setup was alot louder and cleaner than his. He had his subs coming through his back wall of the truck....a blow through also.

    With my volume at 15 you barely see the subs move....at 20 they are moving good...any louder your can't sit in the truck because your head starts to hurt and youcan't see straight.

    On the 4th of december iam taking the truck to a MECA audio competition to see how it fairs with the guys who are serious audio gear heads.

    Sounds great. I am sure I will hear you coming way before you actually get here. Too bad the Broncos are doing better this year....what a disappointment.

    Looks good. Extang also makes a tailgate seal that seals around the tailgate to help keep water and dust from seeping in.

    Ya not a stellar year....Iam going o Phoenix on the 12th to see them play the Cardinals....should be a win...hopefully. The cardinal fans can get a little rowdy when they are beating the visiting team...and I will be out numbered for sure!

    Sure I can! The box is rhimo lined and is very solid....I just put the front wheels on top of the box...well the last box. I had a quad and 2 dirt bikes stolen 8 months ago. Plus thats what my wifes Dodge Ram is for....to beat up!
