Four 12's behind the seat

UPDATE: Go to page 4 for installed pics...

Here's the box finished, but still not painted. Constructed of 3/8 fiberglass sheeting with 3/8 fiberglass sheet divider walls/ gussets. Was originally built for Boston G1 subwoofers, but the shop somehow ordered two 4 ohm subs and two 8 ohm subs, making them useless as I want to run one amp at 2 ohms. I found some Kicker Comp's for fairly cheap so I picked them up and we'll see how they sound. Due to space restrictions, each sub will get 1 cu/ft of airspace. I know in the future I will upgrade to some better subs if I can find any to fit the space in there. Pretty sure I could get some JL 13TW5's in it. Lotta work went into this thing.

It was built to spec to run Boston G1's, but the ones I ordered came in wrong and I couldn't return them... ****ty local shop. So I ordered some kicker comps as they were the quickest solution to finishing this thing. I'm sure it's going to sound just fine with the Kickers

I have 2 solobaric 12's in a custom MDF ported box and its too much. And if you power those right, your box is gonna be LOUD! You definitely wanna fatmat or such the rear wall aswell as removing the rear cab vent breather things, or else the outside is gonna be all rattles and vibrations. Great looking box man!
