Aftermarket Subwoofer system

I've been getting mixed answers on what subwoofer box I can get in my 2008 F350 Crew Cab... it has the power back window.

Anyone have any ideas on how to get 2 10s back there. So far, I've only been told I can just get one back there.

I just made 2 individual sealed boxes for this exact purpose.
I couldn't find any pre-mades that met the sizing. I am using pioneer shallow subs and they have a depth of only 3". My boxes measures .45cu.ft. which is within spec for a sealed box with these.
A ported box would need more space and thus a lot more time in making a box.Pioneer USA - Shallow Series

Don't let anyone tell you that you can't install whatever you wish in there. I have an '06 crewcab with 2 Kicker 10" CVR behind the seat and the amp mounted under the foldable floor (which I was also told couldn't be done). I also have the power sliding glass. I have one Pioneer 600 watt 4-channel amp running the whole system and it is LOUD! Both of the subs are mounted on the driver's side all the way at the bottom with a port exiting the passenger side on the floor of the box. I moved the seat forward 3/4" and put spacers under the front bolts to put a slight tilt in the seat (which also gave me the clearance to mount the amp on the floor and reinstall the folding floor). When I finished, I drove straight to the audio shop to show them that what I was asking for could be done, but since they said it couldn't they wouldn't see any more of my funds spent there. Don't ever be afraid to tackle something yourself, its a great opportunity to learn something and you get something exactly the way you wanted it as a bonus!

You must have a 2004 or later cause my 2006 I was unable to move the seat forward .. But we did get the 2 10" back there also the amp under the flip passenger side .

PM SPL2K, he is a member and stereo installer who is very familiar with our trucks. I believe last time on his site he had pics of 08's as well. I used pics on his site to build a box just like the ones he does for the crewcabs, worked out great.

EDIT: just now read the other posts and someone already sent you that way it looks like

haha, y, I am sorry. I end up wanting to do everything in my truck. was gonna order one, had some part board and decided to try and give it a shot, worked out pretty well I think, other than I was limited to the carpet I could find at WalMart . One day I will recarpet the thing. here is a pic



trust me though, everytime someone has a thread about a box I send them your way. Yours are very clean, and very reasonably priced.
