    box idea design. whatcha think?

    ok so i have a 2005 GMC Canyon extended cab
    the space behind the front bench seat is pretty big for a medium size truck. so i was thinking i want to make a sub box that can double as a seat when necessary for short trips, beer runs, etc.
    SO i want to make a sealed box to run straight across the back, that can have two people sit on it without comprimising the structural integrity of the box, and have atleast 2 12" woofers. good idea? bad idea? thoughts?



    msg BuckyBoy for a good custom box.

    not a bad idea. make sure it's got padding on top, grills on the subs, and provisions for seat belts. As long as the cops won't hassle you, go for it, and post pics.

    Yeah it will work. You could probably even have a shop upholster it or at least put some foam cushions on top. I would probably do an angled downfiring design.

    Was goona suggest the samething. Downfiring to protect the the subs. Some padding on top an upholster over it.

    I don't know why the double wood, but the downfiring sounds pretty nice. But, the problem with downfiring (or so I hear) is that sometimes if it's too close it sounds bad, and the transverse is true, too.



    Now designing / building boxes.

    The only place it is doubled up is the legs. With people sitting on it, I would rather it have more support so the legs don't fail.
