Has anyone had any luck running ported slant style truck boxes? I've got two RE SE 10s they will be going into a 02 dodge ram 1500 single cab, any advice on box design? Should I seperate the air space from both subs and run individual ports? If so where should I run the port(s) out? I'm thinking close to the center of the box? The truck has center console.

I'm not sure if this will help you but my brother and I just put a ported box into his single cab S10. 3 8" Kicker CVR's, slant truck box 52" wide X 14" high top depth 5", bottom depth 10" with a 3" PVC port faced the passenger side and he could not be happier. No divider between subs either. Honestly it took us 3 tries to find what made him happy. 1st box was sealed, second box was the same as above just sealed. From there we said screw it and threw a 3" PVC pipe in the box tuned to around 35 and it gets really loud and clear for 3 8's.

Thanks for the reply, is the sound pretty even with the port just on the passenger side?

Subs forward on driver's side, port out passenger side seems to work best in my truck. These boxes don't have the slant face on them, but will give you an idea of what I did...

Buddy of mine in FL had a pair of 12L7's right behind the seats with the ports at the floor and the subs themselves behind the headrests.

Long story short is was INSANELY loud.
