ok. i just traded in my '97 ram for a 2003 dodge ram. i havent gotten the truck yet, but i will be getting it in about 4 months. i want to have a design for the system before i even get the truck... so......... what the hell can i do with this thing without tearing out the back seat? i'm not lookin to put tv's in it, just the best **** system money can buy. hopefully someone else is in the same situation, so this thread can help someone else out. thanks

when you guys get your truck... youll have to get back there with a tape measure and see what sort of room you have to work with. then you could possibly share box sizes or whatever for eachother...

i know what youre saying. i'm just gettin ahead of myself. i aint even got the truck yet and i'm trying to set up a system for it... well, when i get the truck i will definetly start a new thread... WITH the measurements.... i cant wait!!! but some one told me that the front and back door speakers were 5 1/4. so i may think about going with MB quart components. and i saw in truckin' magazine that some guy had 4 10's MTX, but personally i think that MTX really ***** for subs. so when i do get the truck, i will think about going with 4 solo baric 10's, or 4 JL 10w2s... but i have a mindset on the 10w2s... this is going to be the longest 4 months in my life:mad:

thanks.
what do you think about .55 cft per chamber, for a sealed box with 10īs?

for me, it would be too small... id need a big ported box.

a small box like that isnt going to get very loud but will have high quality.

i really like the MB components, but if there is something out there thats even half of what these speakers are, i would love to know. i will probally build the box out of 3/4mdf, and then brace the inside of the box with fiberglass. but, i dont know the dimensions. and the reason i like the jls is because, well, i dont have a LOGICAL reason. they have a really good reputation, and i think that they hold up to it.
