Hey guys. Just finished up my install of my sub, thought I would throw up a few pics and show you what I did. I wanted a little punch, but I use my truck for work and always have a bunch of tools and junk with me, so I really didn't want to use up the under back seat space, or behind the seat. I also don't need 4-12"s or anything like that, so I decided to get a 10" shallow mount, and mount it in the center seat by carving out some of the foam and building a box to fit in there. That way, I still have a usable seat when I need it, and a totally hidden sub!
Here is the leather pulled off before any modifications:
Foam carved out, ready for a custom box:
Box built and test fit in the foam (speaker hole not cut yet, it will fire down):
Stock mounting bracket cut up and mounted to box:
Test fit in the truck:
With the foam sitting on top (it doesn't sit up this high when done):
Leather wrapped back up:
Sub installed ready to go back in the truck!!
basically looks totally stock, the center seat ends up 3/4" higher than it was before, not even noticable. It actually is now the same height as my drivers seat which is power and usually all the way up. It sounds awesome (the 5 minutes I played with it
) and I can't wait to drive around tomorrow!!
