Behind the seat in a Regular Cab Truck F-150.

This is what I need:
- 3-3.5ft^3 Internal Air Volume
- 1.5-1.75ft^3 Internal Air Volume Per Chamber
- Sealed(No Vents/No Ports)
- Box Terminals on both sides.
- 6.7" - 7.5" Mounting Depth(Thats without the inch and a half of breathing room from the magnet.)
- This is what is going in it. Kicker 12" DVC 4-Ohm CompVX (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_6513_Kicker+06CVX124+CompVX+Series.html)

This is the room I'm working with. If I have to, I will cut out the side panels...back-cloth layer and into the seat some....But Im not going blow through.

if you cut the back side panels underneath the support bar you can fit this box.
Its 55W x 13H x 9TD x 11BD which will yield 3.023 cuft.

What would the rough mounting depth for that be?

Around 10inches at the midpoint, if its angled than the magnet is going to tilted a bit.

Minus about 1.5", roughly about 8.5" mounting depth but the size of the magnet may conflict the with the bottom-inside of the enclosure.

This is the current box behind the seat at: 50.75''W x 9" BD x 5.5" TD x 16" H. Linkage (http://img501.imageshack.us/img501/6319/dscn1097oi1.jpg)

depending on where you cut the hole, probably about 10 inches

50W x 13H x 9D = 3.38

what part of mississippi do you live in? and yea a rough mounting depth would be 9.5 to 10 inches

those would be internal dimensions buddy....

also I posted that pic because I have the same truck and wanted to show you can fit what he wants

Northern, Tupelo-ish area.

So do you have pics of the interior of your truck to give me an idea on how to get an enclosure to fit behind the seat like that? Such as what sections I would have to cut out, any necessary interior modding?

Is that box with the vent for two 10"s or two 12"'s? Also, did you put that in your truck?

****...Im at the very bottom....I can get pics tomorrow of which portion needed to be cut and how much was cut. yea that box was for my truck for my tsx 10s

if the subs are tilted, cant you move the mounting depth back a little? the tilt should give you breathable area behind the motor.

^^watcha mean? like a wedge style enclosure? The enclosure I gave him is a wedge style.

yes a wedge, but because the subs will be tilted up slightly, it gives you more breathable area in the rear. this will aloow you to bring your sub closer to the rear wall of the box. this way you can play with more deminsions

o ok I get what you saying and yes you can but in order to get the 3 cubes he either needs to go the way I said or build a box that is 42W x maybe 16-17 H x 2-3TD x 11BD and have the top of the box step in to compensate for the support beam.

I was looking at 55W x 13H x 11 BD x 9 TD.

Here is an EXTREMELY rough concept sketch of the box, I lettered the measurements which I don't know and I can't be bothered doing the mathematical aspect of.

If anyone can get me a rough air capacity and mounting depth of a box like that.
Linkage (http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/6341/boxdmpb4.png)

That box is formed around the behind the seat area so that it actually forms into the back wall, taking up all available space. Since there is an indention in the back wall that is roughly. 13 inches high.

This box will be constructed out of 3/4 MDF board and also it will be probably covered by....either carpet or roll-on bedliner...

There is a couple of boxes I've done for my truck; it's a crewb cab silverado.


Edit: That last box is a different design from the first two.

I did some remeasuring...

The support beam is roughly 14 1/2" from the base, the seat can go up to rougly 20-21" inches and still have the TD clearance of 7"'s and that is with the seat in a comfortable position, the support beam is 2" deep.

you did measure from the back of the support beam on the wall and not the front right? It slants down to what I thought was 13 1/2

Trepkos
05-03-2008, 10:49 PM
I did from the back, I'll re-measure some more tomorrow, make some pics or something.

snfsh79077
05-03-2008, 10:54 PM
ok...I couldve measure a little off but always best to double check

Trepkos
05-03-2008, 11:13 PM
Yeah its 14" from the back down....and an half an inch on the 2 inch incline.

2x 12" CVX's wired to 1-Ohm, to a Hifonics Bxi 1606d amplifier in a 3.0cubic foot or so enclosure sealed and also in the cab of a truck should sound pretty powerful.

I do agree...freind of mine has a tiburon with two 12" cvx's in a 4.5 cuft box at 33hz I built...its on some kicker amp and hes in the mid 140s

why dont you just fiberglass and make it feel nice inside.
