    Definetly possibly with a well thought out box...would definetly be a tough fit though.

    I talked to a local shop about building a box but they were not sure if 2 12's would fit . They said I could do 2 10's with no problems. I would really like to get the 12's back there .

    Where there's a will there's a way. Yes you can. As a matter of fact you can get 4 12"s behind you seat. Very tricky box. As stated... Very thought out box. I have already done this but the box goes from the floor to the roof of the truck.And the owner was short! I have a F-150 standard cab and I installed 4 Memphis LVS 12"s behind my seat. But you can get 2 12"s in there with the entire box behind the seat. Need any deatiled help let me know and I will e-mail you a drawing of the box!

    I own a car audio shop so every custom enclosure that I make I keep a record of it. The enclosure is designed for .88 Cu.Ft. with the subs installed. This is the Min. air space stillwater designs rec. I will get it from the shop on 9/25 & e-mail it to you. If you know a little about building enclosures you should be fine.

    You could also try building a five sided enclosure using the rear wall as the sixth side, just make sure that you deaden the rear wall.
    Another option you could try is an outside vented aperiodic design, this will require some structure modifications tho.

    If your planning on using a shop then they should have no problems designing the enclosure. It depends on if they want to spend the time on it. Most shops will try and talk you into 2 subs with a pre-fab box. This way they decrease the time they spend on the install but still charge you for a custom install. I do not use pre-fab enclosures. The main reason is becasue they are cheap built. The dim. of the enclosure are as follows:

    (These are outside dim.)

    61" wide, 17.5" tall, 6" deep(@ top) and 9" deep(@Bottom). This should give you .96 Cu.Ft. for each chamber before the subs are installed. I would charge about $85 for this enclosure and would offer to build it for you but if you add shipping you would be better of finding some one closer. Also make sure they use MDF.

    The problem with using the back wall as the back part of the enclosure would be sealing it to be air tight. If you enclosure leaks bad enough this will casue distortion and that is the main reason for blown woofers.

    I briefly talked to them about it last week and the guy I talked to said something about doing 2 separate boxes .I really would like one large one .I got 2 boxes now and I think it would look a whole lot nicer with one big box . If you click on link in my sig there is a pic of what's behind the seat now . Jasontb2000 thanks for all your help with this

    Well in order to get the air space you need it will have to be one box with 4 dividers. Also this box will not leave you with much room to mount your amps. To give you an idea of what I did you can see my ride at http://www.4wheeldrive.about.com/lib...cjasonbell.htm This is an old picture I have update to the memphis 12's. I hit a 148.4 with the set up pictured. Then after the new install I went to a 154.3 SPL. by the way, nice ride!

    Depending on the method you use to build and seal the enclosure. I've never had one leak yet!
