who makes the best truck enclosures? I was seeing that mtx makes vented truck enclosures for trucks but only for 10's. i myself am looking for 12" vented truck enclosures. i think this will be a diffuclt task but its possible. so plz help me ppl.

You could ask a forum member who is in the texas area to make you one.
It would be the most cost effective way and would be totally custom.
Premade vented enclosures tend to have high tuning, something not everyone wants.

ok anyone else? plz i need all the info there is on truck enclosures.

You will have a hard time porting 2 12's in a truck unless it is a ext cab, or there is a blow through. You can pick up a prefab for two 12's sealed for around 60-80 bux. Building one is pretty easy. What type of truck is it? The hardest part is figuring your angle for the seat. If you want vented then I would go with 10's, in which case you can find the kicker boxes on ebay with blown comps shipped for about 20 bux. Good little boxes there.

What truck are you putting this enclosure in?

Sierra 2dr Reg Cab the middle seat doesn't move, but it doesnt matter cuz i rather have 2 seperate boxes cuz it leaves more room for the amp.

2 12" ported correctly isnt going to happen. I can design you a 1 12" or 2 10" that will work just fine, but there isnt enough room for 2 12s. Unless you got a pair that likes a REALLY small ported box. Like 1.3 cube small.

If you are tall you wont get more then 1.7-2 cubes out of it, if you are short up to 3 cubes...

What part of Texas?

well seperate 1 12" ported boxes will be fine. i live in edinburg texas. im 5'11"

either make em custom. or get a jl stealth box. for the truck.

stay away from the mtx crap.

my friend just got a 12w3v2 put into his f-150 regular cab..

the shop built a custom sealed box and it fit perfectly. they charged him $100. with his truck i know he could fit another sealed box behind the other seat, but they said if he wanted ported he would only be able to do 1 12, and the box would have been much more expensive

all i want in all honestly is for my 2 12" subs 2 sound the best they can given the space that I have since I have a reg cab truck. I just want to know who makes the best sounding boxes for trucks cuz ive got to say my subs get preety loud, i can sacrifice some leg space but not 2 much u know. I guess ill have to go to a dealer and ask them.

What subs do you have? What are the specs on them? If you have 12's, then you really should be looking at a compact sealed enclosure for the truck. The manual on your subs will tell you what ft^3 the subs tend to like. That is the box you should be looking for. If you can use WIN ISD, plot your subs and play around a little. Find what they seem to like best. I can tell you now, if you just go buy a random box, or set of boxes chances of you being happy are slim. Remeber, you also need to consider mounting depth with a truck as well.

BTW, it is possible in a reg cab truck. The setup in my sig is in a 95 reg cab chevy. It gets nice and loud.
