Im thinking about building a box for my F150 supercrew that would split the rear bench into two "captains chairs." I would like to put a 15 in it ported. Right now I have an original SOLO-BARIC 15 sealed up, but I just want MORE!!! I was thinking a HDC3 15 (I have about 1600w to work with). Im hoping I could get 3-4 cubes out of this idea.

What do you guys think?

ive done this to a friends truck. but i think either an hdc315 or an fi bl will blow your head off. i would go with fi.

The main thing Im worried about is Ive never built a box before, and Im not really sure where I should put the port?

Ive done a bunch of these boxes, sub upfiring, port exiting by the feet or exiting up at the back of the box. These boxes pound.

Seems like an upfiring port at the back of the box wouldnt be too hard. I like that idea.

Have you actually gone anywhere with this yet? What year is your truck? I have an 01 F150 XL / Work series that i was wanting to put a decent little system in. I dont nessicarily want my RE SE 15 in there, So i thought i would go with the two 8" Orion XTR3's i bought for my work truck, Under the "60" part of the split bench. However with 5/8" wood [which i have spare, Figured with bracing it'd be plenty.] i can only get around 1.5cuft, Not nearly enough to go ported.

This box uve got in mind sounds like it'd be a bit more "fitting", However less "Stealthy". Im sure i could come up with some kinda cover tho.

Would the box go down onto the floorboard? or just sit on the seat? How would you Anchor it?

Let me know please, Im looking to do the same thing.

The ones Ive done go all the way to the floor. I used pieces of Flat Stock Steel and bolted them from the underside of the box to Seat Bolts on the floor. You can usually hide these mounting bars under the box, or paint them black (or your carpet color) to hide them. I just recently did one in a Colorado with 2 dd1508's Ported that pounded.

I had a '99 F-150 x cab and I just replaced the stock console with a custom 2cf enclosure complete with cupholders and storage space. Rear firing sub and vent. It looked and sounded awesome and I didnt' sacrifice any space. I'll dig up some pics.

Id definantly appreciate pic's / links to build logs. That another spot ive thought about.. How hard was it to modify your center console part of the seat?

I havent started on this yet, and im not 100% sure when I will. Right now my old kicker is alright, and ive been busy getting my PGs in the doors.

Not tryin to **** on your parade but I'd make sure that box is sealed. Looks like the exit port wall isint even connected seems to be moving. If your box isint sealed or it's flexing your loosing sound. Looks loud though

nah man, your 100% correct. It was the first box I've ever built and all I had at the time was a jigsaw so none of my cuts were straight. I plan on building a better box this summer that is worthy to sit in the cab and sealed up good.

haha I think a wall would be sick but its my only ride so I like being able to seat a person here and there. Im very happy with the output of 1 15 right now, haha, but I am considering throwing a few more watts at it.
