My subwoofer box idea for deeper subs

I had this big ol box sitting on my back bench of my truck sliding around all the time. Well that got old real quick. I love the way those sub-woofers sound so I did not want to sell them but I couldn't mount them under the seat because they were to deep. I couldn't find brackets to lift the seat for a reasonable price so I decided to make a trip to Lowes. I lifted the seat with some wood and got some longer/slightly slimmer bolts to run through it and put a bolt underneath the bracket that the original bolts went thought. It is very very sturdy and after all its not a safety issue because the seat belt bolts are separate from the seat. It is a little tall but im 6'2 and can still sit comfortably in the seat with enough head room. Here is an idea to throw out there for anyone in the same position I was in. I still need to order the carpet to finish it off.

Good idea. But the wood isn't stable enough for a seat extension. I'd weld up custom brackets 3/16" thick metal, then get them powdercoated or paint them yourself.

Switching to hid's? Do it right!

Yeah I know but it is alot more stable then I thought and no one ever realy rides in the back. I just have them in there as a buffer till I can get some made. I was thinking like the same shape of the wood but like you said get something welded.
