I got a 2001 dodge ram 1500 extended cab, and when i put the 5 1/4's in the two rear doors, i noticed that there was a lot of room in there. Can I carve a hole in the door and plastic door panel and put some subwoofers in the doors? If so can i put 12,s? In the truck so far i have 2 - 6x9,s in the front doors and the 2 - 5 1/4's in the rear doors and 1 - 12" L5 in a ported box being powered by a 1100 watt mono amp. The sub is in a massive 1.7 ported box taking up my whole back seat and i would like the space back. I was thinking of the 12" kicker comp's. Feedback is appreciated

You could, but your gonna be in for some work deadening and stiffening the ever loving pee pee out of your doors to do it. Would probably require modification of the door and panel. :)

I beg to differ, it will and has worked. Just takes an arse load of work to accomplish it. And choosing the right equipment to do it with :)

I think a blow through would be less work, but that is just me :P

Or get some shallow mounts and make a smaller box.

1.7 is massive? then my 38cubic foot wall must have been considered as big as a planet.

I would hate to have to open and close a car door that has enough volume to be 10x the vas of your average 18. That's a big arse farging door right there. :)

whatever the the cubic size is doesn't really matter right now. The box is as big as half of the back seat, to me that is massive. You guys may have bigger that is cool but dont make me seem like a dumb a** just because you have something bigger. But i was thinking about some dynamat or something equivalent and cheaper to deaden the sound. Then put a port in the door somewhere. The shallow mounts are a good idea, but the whole reason this idea ended popping in my head was to get the buy one get one free deal at circuitcity on the kickers.
