    Re: single cab sound systems

    i'll let them talk to u about mids but on sub do u have amp to power or or u need that too? do want lot of bass or just good bass that can keep up with music?, if so u can get 4 channel amp power front speakers with 2 channel and bridge rear 2 to the sub.. if u just want bass then it really depends how much u wanta spend on mono amp and if u want 2 subs or 1 if u want easiest and cheapest that will mean sealed truck box so u have to find subs good in sealed box that aren't very deep..

    I've had some single cab setups. On the sub you are limited on space in a reg cab. If you are wanting more bass instead of shallow subs you can make an enclosure that goes in the middle seat portion and fit a nice sub with larger mounting depth requirements.

    like shredder said lots of peeps doing 2-4 6.5" or 8" subs under seats in trucks he designed some boxes.. if that amp will do 280 per sub just have to get efficient or 1 10-12 for behind the seat.

    Re: single cab sound systems

    Easy dual 8 or 10 ported box should be able to fit... the shallows nowadays are affordable as heck compared to before.... and 250-400 watts goes a long way if its done correctly... there IS some room behind the seat isn't there?
