Can someone please help me design this box!!!! I know a woodworker that would most likely be able to build it for me but i want to get the design for him. I was thinking about making the top piece plexi. And the gray is area that i could build in to make the area bigger but i need your guys' help to let me know if i should do that or not. I am going to be putting 2 15" icons. Thanks in advance! :)

F150, I believe... this guy's been asking for a sketch-up for a while now. But, I don't think a port going straight back will do any good, fyi. Just make it sealed.

The middle seat is attached to the left seat so if i took out the middle seat i think i would have to get a lot of expensive work done.

how much are you willing to spend. if you have the green, pull the whole bench out, throw 2 captains chairs on the sides, and put a box in the middle, where the middle seat was.

I just thought of an idea for the box. to help secure it a passage tunnel could be built into the bottom where the box sits on the seat so your seat belt can go through it like a carseat and secure the box.

That would probably work but i think it would be so heavy and big i dont think it would go anywhere

mmm heavy things move too.....if you ever had to slam on the brakes, swurve to miss an idiot, or anything of that nature that sucker will go somewhere. Better safe than sorry I guess.

no

bolts secure boxes to cars, seat belts secure people to seats.

the only place that he would probably be ale to bolt the box down would be the floor...meaning that the entire top of the box would be unsecure. So with the combination of bolting the bottom and securing the top with the middle seat belt, the box wont go anywhere.

that extra grey area isnt going to work there. the seat in the back is only 3-3.5 somewhere around there and it gets smaller as it goes back. not treally going to do much

exactly i have a king ranch with captain seats in front and back removed the rear console and mobeious built me a box to fit back there to fit inbetween the seats for 2 12's aeroport works perfect

would like to take out front console down the road and add 2 more 12's

I had a box built for my 2005 F150. It went around the bracket on the seat. I went to my local shop and they charged me 150 bucks. It was a 12 inch downfire where the sub was behind the drivers side and the 4 inch port was all the way on the others end facing te right rear door. It sounded very good and many people where surprised. The only thing is I lifted my seats up 2 inches and I made my own lifts out of solid steel rods.... pain in the A$$. But I believe they now have kits for that!

I sold the truck and bought a Tundra so I dont have any pics.
