    Question about subs under the seat? In a extended cab. 08 gmc Sierra

    So I am going to start building my system for my 08 gmc Sierra extended cab
    So for my subs my local car stereo guy told me to our some powerbass xl 10" subs.. He says those are a good bang for your buck.. I was maybe thinking some hdc3 10 or sundown sa 10
    They will be powered by an alpine pdx 1.1000 under
    And they will be going in a custom box under seat
    Or what other subs do u guys think?

    Re: Question about subs under the seat? In a extended cab. 08 gmc Sierra

    For overall performance a down firing enclosure is very nice and using up the area under the seat can work out very very well if done correctly. However, you have a limited height unless you raise the seat up and that will create issues with what you can use.

    However, you are not limited to down firing in those trucks. You can do sub forward port forward, or sub forward port to the side, or a few other options.

    While a center console enclosure works very well, I don't feel it is the correct answer for most installs. It just works and many times is quicker/easier then other options. Not to say it is a bad choice, it is just not my first choice.

    With only 1k rms I would shy away from hdc's as you will barely get them moving. I'm a big fan of 8's so I would do a 4th order for 2 SA's .8 sealed 2 ported around 48. Should get loud and have a great bandwidth while using the power you have quite well.
