sorry no build pictures yet, i already have two of them dual 4 with an american bass vfl 150.1 gold series. im ordering two more this week when my paycheck clears.

so i started doing the box design and so far i've come up with:

remove rear bench
3/4" Mdf
8.5 cubes after port and sub displacement
2 six inch aero ports flared tuned to 32 hz
subs firing up to the roof
ports firing in the middle of the box towards front of the truck
58" wide 23" deep 15" tall

electrical
stock 130? (IIRC) amp alternator
2 gauge single run power
yellow top under the hood
(open to suggestions on this setup i think it might need to be beefed up)

before i begin the build in scorching hot AZ (113 degrees-120 degrees during the day :mad:) i want to make sure with everyone that the plans look okay.
enough port area? enough volume? bracing? tuning alright? sub and port placement? all you silverado guys please chime in that have done similar builds! thanks :)

here's some pictures of 1 of the se's

i would say run 0ga power. and maybe even an extra battery/big 3. but try with the yellow top only and watch your voltages, if it's too low get the extra battery then.

Id most likely say the same, some 1/0ga wire, Big 3 and a rear batt and ur good...

the amp will be running at 2 ohm load, im hoping its enough power. we'll see... oh yeah i do have the big three done forgot to list that.

Those RE SEs will handle some power man, I had 900watts to each of mine at one point. They loved about 750watts for daily though...

right now im running two of them on the vfl 150.1 at 1 ohm load and the amp was on half power with the gains and i can get them to slam super hard but they do distort at high volumes still.

I had a pair on 1500watts and they were loud and clean, I loved them. Im currently thinkin bout running 4 15" on 3k soon

If you want to run it at .5 make sure your electrical is beefy.
