    single cab truck - no room, help me

    i have come to the conclusion that owning a single cab truck is the worst decision you can make when it comes to installing a ******* system. i have a 99 ram single cab, and im stuck, i want more, but ever store tells me im maxed out, thats depressing for a kid like me thats getting hooked into car audio. i have a custom ported box built to specs for 2 12 jl audio w3s. it bumps pretty decently, miked at 145.5 hahahah thats on some old a$$ mike, i imagine its low 140s, upper 130s, nothing special but not bad for my first set up. but i want more, baddly. i was trying to fingue out a way to fit a single w7 in my truck if possible, but thats highly doubtful. i just want to go to one sub that will out-preform the 2 w3s, and that i will have enough room to fit the sub in a ported box. i guess you could say i am going for a non-professional sq system. please help me out.

    Brahma comes to mind......can take lots of power, doesn't need a lot of room, gets da*n loud, and has great SQ...

    Edit - someone in the Classifieds is selling an IDMAX at a good price, that would be a nice choice as well...

    Re: single cab truck - no room, help me

    yes i had been considering a brahma, im not sure on the depth of them, and how much space do they need behind the magnent to vent (i know jl says 2 inches for w7s). how big of a ported box should i go for a single 12? i was also considering the RE HC 12......which will work better for my situation. also i have a RF power 551s, so ill be running the sub off that for a few weeks, then i plan on adding another 550, so the sub will need to be able to handle 1100 watts or so.

    Do what I did, cut the back out! Buy an accordian boot to seal the hole and cut through from the cab to the box. It's a lot of work but well worth it when you have a 15" with 4.5 cubes firing into a little sonoma!
