subs in ext. cab

i have an 02 f-350 extended cab. i was wondering what kind of set ups u were running. ive seen a box for 2 10in subs that fits under the seat, but i talked to a guy at a local shop around town and he claims he could build me a custom box for 4 8 inch subs. just wondering if anyones heard of this being down. or what ur running.

I have a custom built console that has two 10" square subs in it. It looks almost factory. No one ever notices that it is a sub box instead of a console. It is a little wider than the factory console, a little taller and even longer but provides plenty air space for two 10" square kicker subs. It hits way harder than any under the seat box I have ever heard. I'll get you some pics if you want some. hope this helps.

Here is what i did, One Kicker 12in L7 with a custom fiberglass box, it is the same size as the stock seat, and there is Softer padding then the seat had before.

The best part, THE SEAT IS STILL USEABLE, it flips up just like stock, Come on Lady's

Go on ebay and search for f250 subwoofer. I bought a custom made box that flows with the curves of the back seat. I forgot who makes it...but Its loaded with 2 10 inch MTX subs and it sounds pretty decent for a $250 dollar set up. I matched it with a kicker amp, but that amp kept going into protection mode so I swapped it for a Crunch amp, which I've already had in a different vehicle. Overall it sounds pretty darn good!

What Ohm Stable is the Kicker (Or just tell the model number) and what is the Ohms of the Speakers is it a mono amp with two speakers hook up to it.

If you have a 2 Ohm Stable amp and running 1Ohm worth of speakers you will run into the protection problem because the load is to high for the amp.

I was running 4 ohms total bridged on a 2 channel amp. Guess it was just too much for the kicker casuse I have the same set up on my Crunch amp and shes holdin up quite well!!
