Subs in a Regular Cab

I just put infinity speakers and tweeters in my regular cab dakota. Now I have way too much on the high end even with treble adjusted down. Ive been wanting to put subs in ever since I got the truck. I just thought there wasnt enough room for them. Does anybody have pictures and dimensions of a box for 10" subs that would fit in a regular cab? Because of the limited space Obviously a sub with a huge magnet wouldnt work out. So are there any shallower sitting subs that you guys would recommend?

I'll ask Andrew and have him measure. The airspace was around .75ft'2. Which would be perfect for Kick Comps. Both of the boxes were connected with a one piece bottom. Wrapped them in headliner and put polished steel panels on the side for looks.

mine were around those dimensions. The only thing different the box I haven't completed yet is that it goes clear up to the rear window to get a little more airspace. Kicker sells truck boxes with their CVTs for $160, which isn't too bad of a deal.

If you got money to spend, JL has an EXTREMELY low profile 13"

2.5" depth, and only needs 0.8 ft^3 in a sealed box. You'd be able to sit without your knees in the steering wheel, your seat just about all the way back!

Edit: what was I thinking, not including a link? http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...o+13TW5-3.html

0.8 ft^3 actually would take up a lot of space behind the seat of a RC.

You could put in a couple quality 8's and make it just as loud as any normal sized big magnet sub.

Or you could be crazy like me...bahaha



Left: (2) 0.64 ft^3 sealed with a Infinity 12", abused on 450 watts.

Right: new box, 1.59 ft^3 @ 38 Hz with one 10" that'll be seeing 900 watts.

My boxes in the truck right now came out to be:

20" wide
15" tall
5" top
8" bottom

But, I lost some leg room in the process...

i disagree. If you were to build a .8ft^3 box for that speaker, the internal dimensions could be 21.5x15x2.75, plus 3/4 MDF, you'd be at 23x16.5x3.25

You can easily fit that behind a seat. It's like 2 feet, and a dakotas are wide enough to even fit 2 in there.

Sigh...I've DONE THIS, I know how hard it is to get it to work and what will and will not fit.

That doesn't come close to 0.8 ft^3.
