Okay fellas I got 2 18" solox that I will be putting in the ext cab of my f150... Got the seat apart and was wondering if anyone knew of any box designs I want to make the box at least up to the begining of the back window...I got 2 kx2500.1 kicker amps and was going to order 1 or 2 more..anyone got any idea of what size ports or box design I should have..Thanks..

You gonna be able to fit 12 cubes of box in a truck? Are you doing a blowthrough or are you just nuts? How big is the extended cab of that truck? Are you walling it off?

And finally, good luck to you.

Also, what drugs do you sell to afford like 3 stacks (street value) worth of equipment?

Put them in a 20 cube box. Also, how is your electrical system? You might need a cap or 2.

inless you blow through that is pointless. each one of those subs needs 10cuft and i know for a fact no matter how big your truck is you cant put 20cuft in it. so either sell them and get like 2 10s or 1 12 something like that that will be at optimum preformance

Haha no I don't sell drugs..I just bust my butt..I'm a loan officer...So would it be better if I just do one and then I can put the other 18 in my other car...okay so 1 18" and 2 kx.2500.1 amps...Anyone got any box designs that I might be able to use...I got 2 batcaps and 2 yellowtop optimas just might need to upgrade my alternator to a 200amp..But just mainly want to get box designs..thanks fellas

even for a blowthrough 20 cubes is a huge box for an f150. the 18 and baffle would probably be as tall if not taller than the bed. the subs would have to be facing up or down and I dont' know how that would have to be designed. Perhaps a 4th order BP. But even still, this enclosre seems to big for anythig but a van or full sized SUV

well if he has one of those bed covers that go up as high as the cab of the truck, i think he could find enough room to get one 18 optimum space. 2 of those are insane anyways, i dream of having the electrical system to pump that kind of power.

So just one 18inch would be good enough..I don't do competitions or anything like that just love bass...Okay 1 18" solox 2 kx2500.1. I know that one 18in would fit in the extra cab of my truck...just don't know about the box design...

What are the dimensions in the extended cab for where this box is going? Then we'll tell you if it's possible to even do one of them.

dude the golden rule is 1 batcap per 5k watts, so if you have 10k watts then you need 2 batcaps.

the dimesions i believe were 56"or 60" wide by 30 length

SeanDub
08-09-2007, 06:45 PM
And how high are you willing to go?

08-09-2007, 06:47 PM
30" length? 2 18's? Hmm Im confused

SeanDub
08-09-2007, 06:50 PM
If it's 60" long by 30" wide and you're willing to go about 25" high you could fit 2 18" solo x subs back there including port and bracing. You will need a **** ton of bracing and such though.

If I can get 24cu ft out of a Dakota 4 door, then he can surely get 20 cu out of a F150 Ex cab.

It's amazing how you spend so much on equipment and yet need help just preparing for it all. IDK, but that's just meh :)
