Talking sub woofter box under center consol??

got sub that is sittin on my back seat strapped in with my seat belt right now and its just in the way and inconvenient. i was wonderin if i took out my front middle seat and bolted the sub down ther and built a box to sit over it to make it "pretty" i'd make some cup holders and a top that i could open in order to access the sub and put other little things in there. anyone ever done this? if so could i see some pics or just give me your opinions! thanks in advance

what kind of sub are you thinking of dong with this? is it in a home made box or a bought one? you know that a sub box has to be sealed air tight for proper sound. and the amount of internal air space of the box is quite important as well. i like the idea though. im having a hard time finding room in by cc for a sub without loosing any seating.

if youre good with wood, you can make one out of MDF. thats what sub boxes are made out of. just make a blue print of it and come up with your design first. you can face the sub any way you want it to, sides, back, front, or even add some speakers into the box too while you are at it. as for keeping it clean and making it look really good, you can diamond plate over the MDF, you can have it carpeted, or bedlined, you can get a superduty lid and fabricate it into the box you built. lots of options that are up to you. superduty center consoles should fit, its a different bolt pattern but you have to pull the seats anyway to mount it so you can drill new ones if you go that route.

I'd like to see whats going on here.
I've added a new head unit, and infinity's into the doors and back. I would be interested in how this center console turns out.
I build cabinets and other custom wood works.

I took my center seat out and made a console that went all the way up to the dash. The back half is a sealed box that points the sub to the back and the front is open to allow airflow for the amp. Mine was 3/4 mdf then carpeted. Im gonna have it profesionally redone so that airspace and tuning will be proper
