    Sliding back glass or blowthru?

    Im about to start my trucks system build on my 01 Sonoma Ext cab. Im wanting to put the subs in the bed and keep the amps in the extra cab part. Recently i came across a top for the bed dirt cheap. However its one of the high camper top kind. Would it be better to go for a blowthru and cut through the trucks bed into the cab, or replace my back glass with the sliding window and let the sound come into the cab that way? I could do either but with the high camper top i figured it would be easier with the window option. What would you all do

    Window forsure over cutting the cab, IMO. Most window blow throughs dont use a window at all. U simply pull ur back glass and the glass on the camper top and run the acordian boot between the two. Ill see if I have any pics of my old trucks if u like.

    ^^This. Pull the glass and do a boot. And with that much space, it could be a really nasty 4th

    Yes the accoridian boots are simple, they have a slotted section on each side that attach to the cab and the topper. Add a little sealant when u install it though. 6 12s in a 4th will be sick for sure. Here is a buddy of mines nissan with a 4 10 blowthru(window) 4th tuned at 32hz

    I'm thinking 15's or 18's man. Cone area is what to shoot for if you have the space.

    Re: Sliding back glass or blowthru?

    Definitely take out the back glass. Im doing a very similar build. I have a 2002 extended cab Sonoma. Except I have a 1/4 camper shell so the design im doing will have the subs facing into the cab and the port doing the same. Using 3 12' Tantric SHD's and 2 Powerbass xta5000ds strapped. Going to be sick..... I hope. Good luck with build

    Re: Sliding back glass or blowthru?

    Here are some pics of one of my old trucks just before a rebuild, just to give u an idea. This was originally 4 rf power hx2 12s on power t4000 and t8004, t8002 that killed the rf power mids and higs rather quickly, as u see the cheap rf replacement mids and highs didnt last either.lol
