    Icon32 Box for under Dodge seats

    Im just asking for my friend. He is wanting to build his own boxes for his truck. He has an extended cab Dodge Ram (dont know the year, but its the model before the newest ones with the big grill), and wants to put his two 10'' subs under his front seats. Has anyone done this or can anyone give me ideas on how to do it? Thanks

    You would have to completely rebuild the entire frame of the seat just to fit the sub under there, then you would have to worry about cubic feet. If extended cab build under back seat, if regular cab you build behind the seat. Ive done it both ways they both work well.

    If we build it under the rear seats, what ideas can you give me for building the boxes? We have to use wood. Fiberglass and others just isn't an option. Thanks for the reply

    In a truck you cant really worry about airspace unless you want to rebuild and reframe the seats, so you have to buils a box that fits and work with it. And edwards audio is a joke, but so is pioneer so maybe you would like it. personally i go to video kingdom they got my eclipse and jl audio.

    Wow a mouthy 15yr old. I worked for video kingdom for 7 years and a little piece of advice , if an amp says its power on it dont buy it because its craaap. Now I work on my own doing custom work. Business's like Video Kingdom and Edwards Audio contract out to me to do the stuff they dont have time for. And Video Kingdom In Kearney is over priced and unless you went to Sound FX in kearney you probaly bought your **** online or at Walmart. And trust me pioneer does make some decent head units but according to your pictures you have what they call poor mans car audio. And yeah I will be at the db drags in kearney we'll see you there when your mom drops you off.

    I know Kent, mrray132, has a 2001 Ram...quad cab I think...he may be able to help you out a little bit.

    Building boxes under the rear seats is actually really simple.
