Powered Subwoofer - Nevermind!

Well after looking around and researching for a powered subwoofer to go in my 2010 F250 CC, I have abandoned that idea altogether. Nothing seemed to be of any quality and if it was then it wouldn't fit.
So what I decided to do was go the old school box and amp route, and I ordered some stuff:

This box...


This amp...


And these speakers...




Throw in an 8-gauge amp kit, and now it's just the waiting game for the UPS/Fed Ex peeps...

The box is $149 shipped and they build it after you order so you can get some customization. The amp is $149.99 shipped and there's an online $20 coupon, so $129.99. The subs are currently on sale for $44.99, which is half-price or BOGO. The 8-gauge kit cost $20. So totaled out, about $390.

Well I'll be sure to post up how it turns out when its done. It may be a week or 2 as I have to wait for the box to come in...

I have no idea on the 04 vs 08. The box is supposed to have 5.25" of depth based on a large diameter magnet (6"). The Comp 10 sits 5.0625" deep and the magnet isn't that wide.

You can click on the box link and trace it back to clearly see there is a design difference between the 99-07 and the 08-up boxes.

I have that same box in mine. I put the rockford fosgate dvc's in it. It sounds good, but you deffinatly can tell that they need more cubic space. Im running them with an old school punch 250a2 amp and they pound!

That was my concern as well, but then I figured I would give it a try anyway... I'll stuff some polyfill in there and see how it goes.

Did you have any install issues?

If it doesn't work out like I'm planning I'll just sell the Comp 10's and get a set of JL 10Wv3-4. More of an investment but such is life.

Nope, the only thing I did was removed the back wall cover. I also took the vents out in the back wall and covered the entire thing with stinger sound deadner. I put some screen in place of the vents
