    Default Built a new Sub box for the truck

    Well, so far we are loving the Dmax. It has the Bose stereo in it with the little bose sub, but I wanted to add just a little more ump to my bump so I added the mono amp and the Kicker CVR that we had in the Ford. I kept it simple and used a LOC to tap into the rear speakers. Should finish it all up tonight. I had to build a box for the sub, however. I went to all the websites that sell boxes and just couldn't find anything that fit what I wanted, plus I could not justify paying $100 bucks plus shipping for something I could do myself.

    After all the digging around, I liked subthump.com's under seat 10" box the best minus one thing...they built it to go under the 60% portion of the bench, I wanted it under the 40% section. On occasion I flip the large seat up and I wanted to keep all that space. So off to work I went..and here is what I wound up with. Ended up coming in at .76ft. and it is elevated by just a bit over 1.5 inches off the floor. The sub shows it needs .8ft, but thats the best I could do. I used a little poly fill on the inside. I'm sure the design isn't the perfect world box, but for what I wanted it will be great. Enjoy!

    Nice! That looks awesome - was it hard to do that raised portion in the middle on top?

    Nice job! Thing I would think about is tapping your signal for the amp to the Bose sub wires rather than the rear door wires. You will get better signal and its already crossed over for low-pass.


    PWI as usual...

    It wasn't difficult at all. I mounted the sub first and measure where I needed to make a cutout in the back. once that was done i just shaped some wedges for the sides and a piece to fill the back, the wood glued it, caulked it, and screwed it onto the top.
