View Full Version : My regular cab install

This was the first box I designed and carpeted myself (I had my carpenter friend build it). I realize that it pales in comparison to some of the enclosure-art that people are constructing on here, but I'm proud of it :D

I needed something that was small enough to fit behind the seats in my 07 Ranger, and still have some space to mount an amp to. Overall I've been very impressed by that little JBL sub. It was pretty cheap, and hits relatively hard and low for the box it's in. I may end up converting my bench seat to buckets and building a center console box with a more powerful 8 in it. We'll see.

Here it is installed:
Looks pretty good eh?

You can see that the armrest does hit the box/amp, but the sub does have a little breathing room behind the drivers seat.

Good looking build!! Reg cabs are hard to work with, I know! Glad you found a spot for your amp, im my current system I couldn't find a spot for my amp.

Good job!

Looks really good!!

Does the sub hit your seat at all or does it not move that much? I saw you said it had a little breathing room, but wasn't sure how much that was.

Good job either way!

If I really crank the seat all the way back and recline it back a bit it does in fact touch the rubber surround on the sub. However, I sit with the seat back fairly close to vertical, and I'm only 5'10" so I sit with the seat up a couple clicks. The sub always has a good amount of breathing room (at least two inches).

Thanks for the kind words! I look forward to tackling a much more complicated design the next time around.
