    New Truck, new subwoofer system

    Traded in my 2003 Extended Cab Z-71 Silverado and bought a new 2008 GMC Texas Edition Crew Cab Sierra.

    Ironically, Crew cabs have less space to work with under the seat than extended cabs.

    So I am forced to sell my extended cab box from and purchase a new box from them. Box specs are below.

    I will be running this off of a JBL 1200.1. I am looking to sell the two TC Sounds subwoofers. One reason is they need a bit more airspace than what this box can give it. Secondly... Well thats about it. I dont really want to get rid of them, but I need some subs that will be able to use the .83 cubic feet more efficiently.

    Box Specs:
    MDF construction (3/4" and 5/8")
    Air Space: .83 cu.ft. per chamber sealed
    Mounting Depth: 6.5"
    Clearance: 1.75" between floor and mounting surface
    Finish: Your choice of carpet

    Fits: Two 10s or Two 12s up to 6.5" deep
    (magnets must be no more than 6.25" in diameter)
    Will also fit 10L5 and 10L7.

    So I was thinking Kicker CVR12's, RE SE 12's (tight fit) etc...

    I have been out of the car audio world for a bit and would like some input on whats new out there and what would be a great fit for a crew cab. I'd like this to be loud when I want it, but some sound quality when needed as well. Kinda hard to get crew cabs and extended cabs loud in a sealed box

    You could stuff your new box with polyfill to create the effects of a bigger box.
