Can any one help design me a box for my friends ford ranger. Im trying to do the box for his truck. He likes to have the seats just about all the way back (reclined and scooted). The box is for one 10 in XXX. The old style (05's). Ported to 35 HZ. I can design boxes but this thing is a PITA. It a 2005 BTW. Thanks, Andrew

I wouldn't say that, my current design would allow a 10 XXX to fit. Just have to think a little harder when planning.

You think so?.......I had 3 10w3's back there last year and that was a tight fit....I would say that anything with over 5.75 mounting depth is gonna compromise a little legroom....but who knows if you find some way then i may use it for my Q 12's

i think its an extended cab because it has the doors that open up

Yea, I'm hoping to be able to fit a 12 DP (if I can ever find one :mad: ) behind the seat.

Thats a rough idea of my design, its a downfiring, fixes the problem of mounting depth but the seat has to be fairly far up. I'm 6.3 and still have plenty of room though.

Did u try cutting out the back wall yet? That would probably work.

Whats the mounting depth on the XXX? Should be able to fit it in at the bottom of a wedge box. Port out the side. There's more room in trucks them ppl think.

Hey I played with some plans for ya. I used the measurments you gave but I made up the top measurment. I used 2" knowning you said that the seat would be back. Hope this helps you out a little bit, let me know if you don't understand or have questions about it.....
