View Full Version : Advice for Ford F150 SCREW, 04'-08'. Ported or sealed, need a better solution.

STILL looking. Have an 04' screw. Looking for a box that will not require a seat lift, looking for interior to stay stealth. All of the pre-fabs top out at 5 7/8" mounting depth, and all I can run with my current box is "low profile" subs. (currently two RF 12"s). They aren't cutting it for me right now, but i will be putting more power to them today or tomorrow, and see if that helps.
I guess that I am also looking for a sub suggestion that will work. I am not opposed to sealed, as long as it has GREAT musicality, and decent SPL capability ( but don't need to do hair tricks!). Any suggestions? Anyone think I can get better performance out of my existing subs with a custom box?
Have any of you seen designs that can possibly mount a sub on an angle or different axis in order to achieve greater mounting depth?
Thanks, this has been a challenge to find the 'best' solution...

Not opposed to 2-3 great 8"s or 1-2 10"s, mounting depth seems to be the only limiting factor, (as well as the PITA 60/40 bench seat 'feet' that break uo the box possibilities...)

I had the same truck(07) and posted a pic last night of my setup in a different thread. We are extremely limited with what we can do under those seats. But, fortunately, there are subs out there can give us the response we want. I ran 2 DD1508s and loved them. I fed them 1000w each off an AQ2200 and kept them in my truck until I sold it. You cant go wrong with those or maybe a couple SA-8s. I dont think you would be able to feed them as much power as the DDs, but they will still sound **** good. Here's a link to my build to give you some ideas. I'm sure this isnt the ONLY way to do it, but it worked out fine for me.

I have two Memphis shallow flat sub for sale that will work great for ur setup ..

Seriously, If you don't have that truck anymore, but still have that box, I want it!!
Nice work. Do you still have a cut sheet/plans, etc?
I think this is exactly the direction that I am leaning towards.
What is the max mounting depth you acheived with that?

I already have two brand new RF shallow 12"s, I don't think the Memphis ones would be enough of an upgrade to just try that in my existing pre-fab sealed box...

Yeah, I still have it and have been trying to sell it here only locally due to the freight costs. The box plans are on another computer that I no longer own. But I might have it in my email folder from where I sent it off to someone else who bought the plans. From the part of the baffle where the sub actually mounts, is 6 1/4" to the bottom. Ideally, I believe you want 1" clearance around the magnet in all directions twords any walls. But, .75" was fine for me. Those DD's had a mounting depth of 5.5".

Hmmm. Lets work up a shipping quote to 83001, and see what happens, OK?

ok, I will go out and measure it, and guess on a weight.

Wow, shipping wasn't as bad as I thought. Fed Ex 3 day $50.80 But, I totally guessed on the weight but I think it's about right at 55lbs.

Bump, now I need to figure out what the options are for subs for this great box. Heh. I said 'box'.
