My truck has the bench seat up front with the flip up console that works as a third seat. The previous owner hollowed the foam out of the middle seat and built a box that fits in the same place. You can't even tell it's there until you feel the seat and it's as hard as a rock(wouldn't wanna ride there very long). But i never have anyone ride there anyways, because #1 i don't like to be crammed when I'm driving, and #2 it's a 6 speed so they would get in the way of me shifting, so it works pretty well. Just an idea if you have the same configuration.

He also hid the amp and everything under the rear seat and ran the wires up under the carpet. I like the setup because i didn't lose and usuable space but still get the boom i'm looking for haha.

Im looking for an EX and ive been thinking of where i could put a sub in it. Of course I don't have one to verify what would fit But I was thinking somewhere along the top corner near the back. Because how often do you pack stuff up to the corner of the roof??? Maybe above the spare?? OR maybe even inside the spare. Ive seen cars do that. Both options would mean a custom box of course.


What kind of sub you looking at?

Ive wanted some infinity perfect 10" for a while.
But my last car was broken into 3 times and I lost over $3k in stereo equipment. So I stopped putting aftermarket in. Thats was 7 years ago. Now i have a garage.

Hey guys,
I have a 10" Solo kicker, in a square box 12X18 box. The amp is under the second row, so if you take out the third its not taking up space. First of all I HIGHLY RECOMMEND, testing your system with Ted Nugent's Stranglehold once all is installed. Its sex, pure sex. Moving on. Granted I bought the EX to haul kids and all stuff associated with them. I have yet to do this,(1st kid is do in July) SO that would lead to me stating that I haven't had any issues with this subwoofer getting in the way. However it does not have plexi glass covering it. I went to pick up propane for the grill the other day and was definitely worried about my sub. I will be putting something over the sub/enclosure to protect it in the future. For now it sounds awesome and don't miss the room.

-Evan

about 6 years ago i would have agreed with you. ted was very good friends with my departed grandfather. country neighbors ( and actual neighbors ) ted was a reserve sheriff where my grandfather was a sheriff.

then i did alot of research on ted and why he never ran for office in Michigan. he had many great points and opinions that MANY people shared.

lets just say he can run his mouth THAT is for sure.... but when the time came to DO what he says and advocates.......ummmm not so much. i lost all respect for him. and i refuse to listen to anything he ever had a part of.

thank a veteran, **** ted nugent.


sorry, back on topic.

I'd love to see pics of that 40/20/40 middle seat box. I have the same front seat and an Apline type-r 10" dvc from a car I sold. This sub is pretty big and sounds amazing with the right amp. I don't want to go to a shallow sub plus I would save money using what i have, but finding a place to put something this big is pretty hard.
