I picked up a JL Audio 15W3v2 on craigslist a few days ago for $40. Not my first pick for a sub but I couldn't pass it up for that price. Looks brand new and the coils measure good on my meter.
I've been telling a friend of mine for a year now I would help him put a little bass in his truck so I guess this one will go to him if I can make it fit. Anyone ever put a sealed 15 behind the seat of a standard cab F-150? I would go get measurements myself but I was gonna surprise him with it.
Manual shows the mounting depth at 8.125". If anyone has an F 150 around that year with a standard cab and wants to tell me the max dimensions I can get behind a seat without having to jack the seat way up and make it uncomfortable to sit in I would really appreciate it.
Just going to be doing a sealed enclosure for him, he doesn't wan't anything crazy loud, just wants some bass with his mids and highs. Will be running about 500RMS to it. Which is the subs rating so should work great.
This is what I came up with. I'm hoping it will work ok behind the seat. It seems kinda deep for a single cab though to me without looking at it
JL Audio recommends 2.125 cubic feet of airspace so I'm close. If space permits I'd build it exactly to spec but I get the feeling this thing is gonna be tight if it fits at all.
