    New here and need advice

    Hello all I am new here and need some advice about subs. I want to add a sub or two to my factory system. I want something that sounds good. Im not all about competition. I listen to rock mostly punk and rarely R&B or Rap. I have a 2005 ford superduty crewcab so my box options and sizes are limited. I am builing the box myself as i have done this on the last 5 vehicles. I will only have a 4.5" mounting depth. Should I go with a single 8", 10" or duals. I was looking at the kicker comp. 8" with a 4.34 mounting depth or a jl audio 10w1. I have a kenwood 600 watt amp that I was going to run them with. If you professionals on here could give me some advice as well as some speaker choices since my last truck I used my old Punch 10"s. Just looking to upgrade!!! Thanks in advance, Eric.

    **EDIT:** I did read the "read this first" and know there is no best speaker but I am looking for opinions. Also How does everyone feel about shallow/flat mount subs??

    Here is the truck it will go in.....

    the stealthbox from jl sounds good in those trucks and it is an easy solution. you dont lose any space and it goes unoticed in the cab.

    if you put a lot of power behind that stealthbox, they sound great. i know an installer from a shop that has the same truck as you with the single 10" in the stealthbox, and it sounds great. the biggest local JL dealer, the owner has a stealthbox in the exact same truck as you too. i am not a huge fan of the stealthboxes, but the one in that truck sounds super clean and gets fairly loud.

    I dont want a stealth box since the only one available for mine is under the seat in the fron bench and I wanted to hide the amp. I am going to build a box that goes behind the rear seat that is either 30" wide for a single or 56" wide for the dual setup.

    Re: New here and need advice

    There are some on ebay for the 4 ohm kicker eights for $55 each or $99 for two 2 ohm. Again I dont know which will be better. The amp is a older kenwood 600 watt amp with 2 channels but I will bridge it to one. Im assuming its a 4 ohm amp as its not competition but I dont even know if the 2 ohm's are for competition or not.....Sorry newbie here to understanding good speakers!!

    you should fiberglass you a box behind and under the rear seat to give you the most room but its you choice. now as far as to get 2 ohm or 4 ohm you will need 4 for sure. also maybe look into some image dynamic idqs. they would be perfect for this. either 2 8s or maybe even 2 10s.
