    Need help on a truck box

    this is a pic i took inside my truck, The dimensions I have are not the exact size of the truck, i left a few inches all around for some slack.

    heres kinda what i was thinking, could someone tell me how to port this or something, i want as much SPL as possible.

    im using a 12" kicker 2ohm 400rms shallow mount sub.

    It would make things easier if you used aero ports but it is possible to slot port a box like that. Are you open to using aero ports?

    PM me if you need a design.

    Re: Need help on a truck box

    are you going to remove the jack, and cover? or relocate it?

    Is that a Kicker CVT you have, i would give it as much space as possible, from the setups ive heard in person they sound better/louder in larger boxes. (kinda defeats the purpose of a "shallow mount", but wat ever kicker..)

    ive actually seen a paper towel roll used for a port, yeah i was like "wtf!". I knew what it was, but i didnt dare ask to save him the embarrassment...


    PVC would be your best/cheapest/easiest route IMO

    My JBL GTO's are pretty shallow. I think maybe like 6" or so?
