Single Shallow 12" Sub Behind Rear Seat in Crew Cab... Box Dimensions?

I have tossed around the idea of a powered sub or bazooka tube for a quick, easy install. But the kid in me wants to go with a 12" shallow mount kicker with a 1000w Mono block amp.

I have built several boxes in the past but wanted to see y'alls ideas before I embark on this adventure.

I need between 1-2cu.ft. sealed air space and about 4.5" mounting depth. I have the power window and don't mind cutting some of the carpet away. I plan to put behind drivers side rear seat and remove the tray. I should be close to 8.5" on the bottom by doing this and hope that would give me room for mounting depth...

Has anyone else created a single 12" box with room for amp and tire jack?

Amps can be mounted to the back wall of cab under window. I have six mounted in my SC now along with two electronic crossovers. Not sure if I have latest pics in my profile or not. May be of just five amps. Need to get on computer and update. I gave in and ran four 8" subs under rear seat. Still sounds good not deep like a 12 though.

You can make it work. I crammed more.

I think I have it planned. I will just used the 60 part of the 60/40 bench and make a long back carpeted MDF wall to mount the amp to, that way I can unscrew the amp wires and pull the whole box to remove it from the cab and it will all stay in tact. Looks like I will be ripping out the back wall carpet to make this happen tho... LOL

subscribed. I was thinking of doing the same thing. I don't need anything crazy, but i was thinking a single 12 would fill out the cabin nice.

keep us posted on what you come up with. I also want to see pics if you just take out the back carpet instead of cutting it, seems like just as good of an option to me, but i haven't tried it yet.

Here are some pictures of my truck.


6 Amps and 2 Electronic Crossovers It is 12 active channels at 75 watts per channel at 4 ohms with less than 0.003 THD. 900 watts total.
It's all about the sound quality but it's also loud but not a system that flexes glass lol

The sheet metal running in front of the bottom amps is the cooling system for them. It is thermostat controlled. Can see the motor all the way to the right. Works well too being that's all behind the seat.

Looks like a nice setup, great work! I did a center console setup between the rear buckets with one 15 in my Harley that sounded nice. I run active aswell off a Pioneer 80PRS.

Iv got 2 12"s in my crew cab. By hobby I am a dj/sound tech/musician and the 12"s to me are almost too much in my truck. Need to upgrade the speakers in my doors to accommodate the volume of the subs. I'll post a pic of my box in the morning.

2004stroker, I'd be very interested to find out which 12s you used and the dimensions of the box or where you got it.
