    Icon32 mini-truck bts boxes......

    just curious what everyone has had the most success with on behind-the-seat setups. i'm going to be throwing a system in a 98 s-10 and want to try something new. i want to keep the jack box in there. it's not for my mini, but my cousin. i was thinking about firing a port on the passenger side, built above the jack box, and using the rest of the space...... she is not going to be down for going crazy on the box and sacrificing anything but leg room, but i don't like sealed bts boxes, and want to see how efficient i can get it (but have good sound range)

    I could only fit a 10" behind the seats of my Dakota, and it's bigger than an S-10.

    If I were you, I'd do a single SA-8, port side

    you will probably run into mounting depth problems when going with normal subs, even a sa-8, you may look into a pair of e-8s from sundown, they have quite a bit shorter mounting depth dont need the room or power that the sa-8 does.

    I did some 6" subs in a ranger not to long ago. Did 3 firing down and it sounded amazing for what it was.

    If you want to go standard, depending on leg room I would suggest a single 8 or 10(they will fit with minimal leg room lost) then port to the side.

    Re: mini-truck bts boxes......

    i dug out my stack of plates when i was home last week (i have them specifically for relieving the back of a truck box) and she is short. i was thinking a single-10, or dual 8's firing in the center, or should i keep it to the drivers side? also, think i should go with 14^2/cu port area, or a different ratio? also, i'm looking around for budget subs for this, so it might just be whatever someone offers and will work well. thanks for the replies
