    I was thinking of putting a downfire speaker box underneath my back seat. Anyone have any tips or ideas that may help in building my box?

    i have seen more and more these days people putting "bed liner" ie linex or rhino lining ect on their sub boxes instead of carpet to make a "cleaner" sound i would reccomend it:happy:

    For an extended cab pickup, a month ago I was able to build a 1.5 cu ft. box that fires a 10' sub upward. The sub is on the passenger side of the truck, and goes of the middle hump and the the port comes out on the driver side. The best thing was that I didn't do any mods to the seat and it still lays flat. I still have the dimensions of the box saved on the computer. If you are interested in the design I can also take pictures to.

    I am only able to squeeze 5''s of top mount depth on these boxes so if you want to use bigger subs or 12''s I would do it out of fiberglass which is my next project.

    yeah thanks for the help I need all the help i can get. I have always ran wiring for systems but had the box made. This is my first box and think that this is a pretty complicated box for a first build:neutral:

    my total build cost for current setup just for wood, carpet, glue and spray adhesive was about $50 but it also depends on if you have the right equipment to build your box. I'm budgeting about $250 for my fiberglass box project, but thats still cheaper than a stealth box or paying someone else to build it
