    Re: Raising the back seat in an Ext. Cab Chevy

    should it be a problem to get two solo-baric L7 12s under there?

    and do they sound like crap in a sealed box?

    well all my pics were from a 2003+ silverado but i beleive the way the back seat is constructed is the same if not very simular throughout most of the different body styles.

    Re: Raising the back seat in an Ext. Cab Chevy

    yeah, i'm pretty sure it's a lot harder.

    anyone ever raised the backseat in a 95 silverado ext cab?

    Re: Raising the back seat in an Ext. Cab Chevy

    if your 95 is like my dads 90 sierra it is prretty much impossible.
    the seat pivots on a big steel bar that is mounted on the side of the cab.
    you would have to raise that joint and i dont think it would happen without some cutting and welding.

    so short answer i would say no.

    Re: Raising the back seat in an Ext. Cab Chevy

    well crap.

    my local audio shop told me i could fit only VRs 12s but i doubt that.

    anyone with that model truck know what my realistic sub options are?

    Re: Raising the back seat in an Ext. Cab Chevy

    well in my dads i crammed in a eu-700 in a .25 cube sealed box....

    but you could probably get a pair of 8's in there.
    the problem i ran into is depth, the box wasnt very tall or deep.
    you could bring the box out further than i did, i just didnt want it to be seen at all so it could come out another inch or so
    and if you ised 1/2" mdf instead of 3/4 then you might squeeze in some 10s

    but again this is all assuming the space is the same as it is on my dads truck.

    Re: Raising the back seat in an Ext. Cab Chevy

    yea i already have 12s in there the CompVRs there mounting depth is 6-3/16"

    the L7 12s wont fit, but i'm sure the 10s will (6-3/8" mounting depth)

    will the L7 10s hit harder than my CompVrs with a kx1200.1?

    We just got done raising the seat in a '05 SS 1 inch. It was fairly easy. We used 1" blocks.

    We also did a glass bottom enclosure that netted us with 3.66cu^ft of internal displacement.

    And what to do in 3.66cu^ft?

    8 RE8's of course, ported tuned to 32.

    Power them with a Zapco 1100.1Z and let them fly.

    It's deffinatly our "loudest" system we've done under the seat of a chevy ext cab.
