    ext cab box design. Help!!!

    ok, 2004 dodge dakota ext. cab. lookin to do 3 12" RE audio SR series. i have asked everywhere but here and never got any solid suggestions. i would need 4.5 cubes ported to 35-40hz, would a ported downfiring box be best or maybe a ported rear firing box? i am new to trucks and have no idea whats best for 12's in an extended cab. thanks guys!

    ok thanks, i wasnt really wanting to fire them up for security reasons, kinda like the clean look of no subs showin, i just didnt know what would sound the best cause i know the box can make or break the whole system, wanted to make sure it sounds good and loud.

    You could fold up the bench in the back, and have the box be tall enough but below the window line, then have the subs facing forward toward the backs of the seats with the port pointing upward.

    Might as well take the back seat out since he wont be able to use it.
